On his 6th instructional dvd for the Shred Academy, metal guitar master Joe Stump presents a wide variety of techniques and practice tips that will appeal to players on all levels.
Shred Guitar 101 DVD
While much of the material on many of Joe`s previous dvds was geared towards more experienced metal/shred guitarists, the content on Shred Guitar 101 is a great learning source for all players.
Speed scale chop building studies, open string techniques/soloing ideas , basic arpeggio play, solo breakdowns, technique building etudes and more are all included in the latest installment for the Shredlord.
Roo's Creative Shred DVD
For novice ears it seems that guitar heroes have a mysterious gift or use a magical spell to bring out their incredible fast licks. Few of them show their licks before a camera, performing in slow motion, sometimes without even mentioning the scale used, leaving us without a clue as to how to adapt it in our play… Instead of “selling fishes”, Roo explains what is a fish, how to build a solid fish net and how to fish. Not a chain of fast licks empty of sense.
In this exclusive video, Roo bares his knowledge just like a private instructor. “Creative shred” focuses on two main concepts: Rhythm patterns and interval choice. How to construct your own arpeggios. Start sweeping, picking and tapping. How sometimes with just a few notes shaken up, you can create outstanding shred licks too. How to make the most of an exercise so that it becomes a mechanical reflex, and leads naturally to the note flow of a personal lick.
Exercises are shown slowly with close up pictures so that you can really see the fingerboard. Roo gives hints for practise habits and tricks to increase your endurance. After this 1 hour lesson, you will understand ‘shredâ€™ like never before!
