Alfred gives guitarists the opportunity to explore the world of heavy metal guitar playing with The Total Shred Guitarist. Author and virtuoso guitarist German Schauss provides a step-by-step approach to shred guitar that makes it easy to understand and accessible to play.
The Total Shred Guitarist helps guitarists of all genres develop finger independence, conditioning, and speed through simple chromatic patterns, warm-up exercises, and sequences in a variety of scales. Instruction includes technical fluency in alternate picking, tapping, multi-finger tapping, sweep picking, string skipping, and more. The newly added DVD enforces the topics throughout the book with author German Schauss demonstrating the lessons and techniques onscreen. The included CD features backing tracks to hone soloing skills and to develop your personal shredding style.
“The Total Shred Guitarist starts with the basics of developing greater technical fluency and builds on this foundation toward many advanced concepts and techniques,” says Schauss. “This book will help you develop your own sound and style, and will help you incorporate the awesome power of shred into your own playing.”
