I need help for shredding. What are some good things to learn to get on the basics of it? I also need some things for jazz and blues too. What scales should i learn? What techniques are there? How long should it take me to get pretty decent at it(I know everybody learns at their on pace, i was just wanderin how it probably takes) Post links to stuff if u can. O and if this is the wrong forum, my bad.
Before you really do much you have to have the raw finger speed and skill to play fast. Practice simple chromatic scales (chops, whatever you want to call them) which are like 1, 2, 3, 4 on one string, 1, 2, 3, 4 on the next, etc. using all your fingers. Use a metronome too.
