I do not know if there is already a thread like this I looked but couldnt find one. This thread is a place where people share songs that really help improve there skills in shredding especially. For instance Testament 'Musical Death(A Dirge)" was a breakthrough song for me. So, if anyone has good songs to learn with good leads, sweeping, crazy techniques etc... please post them and help out

Just check out anything by Satch, Paul, Marty, Vai, Malmsteen and some other progressive bands like Racer X, Angra, to name a few.

Not a big fan of shred, but I know some artists I guess. Steve Vai is a really good example.

I'm working on I Am A Viking by Malmsteen right now. There are some great licks in there that are (relatively) pretty easy, so it's a nice place to start. The solo's another story though .
I will show you something different from either
Your shadow in the morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you
I will show you fear in a handful of dust

Thinking some Satriani - Crushing Day is just great, pretty tough though... Surfing with the Alien, Back to Shallabal, and Circles are some well rounded satch stuff...maybe Mind Storm, Forgotten Pt2? I dunno, can't remember the toughest stuff...Tender Surrender by Vai has some good stuff too.
