Ive been playing for a while. Its embarassing how long Ive been playing hah. I play metal/death metal and Id say I can play most any rythmn parts but practically no leads. I learned how to play some simple leads like the first solo on fade to black and the nothing else matters solo LONG ago but I never focused on leads so I suck. Some recent rythmn parts ive learned are nile-lashed to the slave stick, black dhalia-thy horror cosmic. Basically I wouldnt consider myself a noob but I want to really sit down and learn to shred. So can someone recommend a way to achieve this? Instructional stuff or what not? Maybe vids or books or something. In time id like to learn to solo not jsut play someone elses solos etc.. Anyways appreciate any advice thanks.
Practice chromatics. That's all I've got at the moment.
Shred Masterclass videos on this site are always good. In the comlums/features section.
Try learning some easy solos also.
