I'm going to start over. I was a pure metal rhythm guitarist for several years. I liked my gain thick and juicey and loved playing chuggy God Forbid style riffs. Somethings happened to me now. I only use a little bit of gain and I've just discovered Jerryc and I'm learning Cannon by him and finding it so much fun. I've learned up to the sweep picking bit so far and I want to learn more. What other people use this kinda style? I want to be able to shred like a mother and play some music that will actually impress people and not just make them cry.

Metronome.

Then economy pick 3NPS scales ^v^ ^

Other exercises include chromatic exercices, and different types of alternate picking.

All with a metronome of course, your best friend.

Listen to some Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, and John Pettrucci.
Those are some great examples of the shred genre.

It ain't a genre, it's a style.

Anyway, threadstarter, I suggest you post this in the shred forum as people know a lot more about it there.

Dude, metronome. The way I learn something hard to play is I break the song down into small parts, then I play with the metronome and get it memorized and gradually build up speed until it's not only fast, but accurate. Getting a metronome will really help in building finger dexterity, speed, and coordination.

well you don't have to get all technical, he probably is aware of that. He's just learning Jerry C's adaptation.

Actually, I've come across plenty of unsuspecting people who thought he actually composed it.
