View Full Version : first shred
06-08-2006, 07:03 PM
what was the first and easiest shred song you guys learned?
06-08-2006, 07:05 PM
Right now I'm working on I'm Alright by Neil Zaza. It's not too hard, and yet and the same time still providing a challenge. Definitely improving my string skipping technique.
EDIT: After reading the following 2 posts, I need to say that Crazy Train was my first shred song and then Eruption. I'm Alright is my 3rd.
06-08-2006, 07:24 PM
Eruption by Van halen....and bits of Hanger 18...
But I never learn songs much.
06-08-2006, 07:31 PM
Probably crazy train.
06-08-2006, 08:05 PM
First true shred... Marty's solos in Holy Wars.
06-08-2006, 08:46 PM
crazy train, then eruption, the parts of arpeggios from hell
06-08-2006, 09:02 PM
under the influence
(had to say that before someone else did)
but seriously my first "shred" songs were:
06-09-2006, 04:21 AM
Far Beoynd The Sun, if I remember right.
06-09-2006, 04:40 AM
crazy train solo= shred???
i can understand Eruption, but.... crazy train?
06-09-2006, 06:45 AM
Because its a good intro to shred, simple enough, and more shred then eruption imo.
also it was my first solo, either way.
06-09-2006, 07:03 AM
Arpeggios from Hell
06-09-2006, 09:18 AM
My first would be ummmmm.....the solo from Skid Row's "Youth Gone Wild," if you consider that shred.
06-09-2006, 09:22 AM
mine's Fade to Black
Prophet of Page
06-09-2006, 12:19 PM
First, Zap by Eric Johnson. I can't really think of anything that was easy though.

Still haven't learned a full shred song :(:
06-10-2006, 05:12 AM
My first was Satchs Always with me, always with you - hardly shred... but there's some fast legato passages and a tapping section. I made it my business when starting to shred to get every note clean and accurate though, and thought that'd be a mediocre technique wise song to start off with.
06-10-2006, 08:13 PM
Far Beyond the Sun for me. I can hardly play it anymore though :p:
06-10-2006, 09:48 PM
Answers : Steve Vai
although it doesnt have any "shred"
06-10-2006, 10:26 PM
One - Metallica (if you would even call it 'shred')
Summer Song - Satch
06-12-2006, 08:54 PM
Stevie Vai - Tender Surrender
Cheated on a couple of parts (like the ascending sweep pattern) but apart from that I got it all down in a couple of weeks.
06-12-2006, 09:10 PM
love that song.
06-13-2006, 06:29 AM
love that song.
Me too (assusming that your talking about 'Tender Surrender')
06-13-2006, 06:40 AM
I learnt Evil Eye, Trilogy Suite op5 and Far Beyond the Sun around the same time. Then i moved on to learning every song off Countdown to Extinction.
06-13-2006, 07:50 AM
If metal songs with shreddy solos are being includedI actually can do a lot more of what is known as 'shred' than I thought, my first was probably Crazy Train seeing as that's being counted. Can play quite a few more, but 'Black Star' other than the solo is quite easy (just learn D# harmonic minor and play quickly.) Thats what I did anyways.
06-13-2006, 01:35 PM
Judas Priest's Painkiller!
06-13-2006, 02:04 PM
Mr. Crowley, Surfing With The Alien and Sisters were the first I think.
06-14-2006, 06:04 AM
^ I can play Sisters but i wouldn't say it was shred.
06-16-2006, 03:21 AM
