Hi!

This'll be my first post on this forum.

I've sold my drums and decided to focus 100% on the guitar instead, but i've never taken guitar lessons, so i'm pretty much self-taught. I can do some riffing and triple 16th picking at like 200+ bpm.

I play a lot of death metal, but also some stoner.

What i would like to get better at is shredding, soloing and being able to keep 16-notes permanent at like 200+ bpm.

Any general tips to get better at this is appreciated , but i guess the easiest would be to follow some kind of instruction dvd. You guys know any good?

/Axel.

Petrucci's Rock Discipline is a must. As is Friedman's Melodic Control, and basically everything by Gilbert.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.
