I am trying to learn to shred and I need some DVDs and Guides to to this. Can you suggest good books and DvDs for learning shred, alternate picking, sweep picking, tapping?

I need something that actually helps and guides you in good detail not something that shows someone shred for one hour to prove he can shred - It is me who wants to learn to shred not seeing others do so.

try the new jeff loomis dvd from guitar world that dvd definitely changed my playing for the better
also theres the michael angelo guitar world dvd wasnt as helpful to me but everyone finds different things to work for them
then ofcourse theres the always mandatory john petrucci rock discipline and paul gilberts intense rock 1 and 2
for books theres troy stetina's speed mechanics for lead guitar it has some great exercises in the book that i still use to this day
hope this helped
