alrighty - I want to start shredding, plain and simple, so could you experienced string-melters recommend me some easy shred-learning songs?
and you don't have to mention the "start out slow, play it nice and clean, work up to speed" dealio because I'm keeping that in mind!
maybe help me choose some CDs too, Ive already got some

dream theater - all CDs but I havent listened to them all fully yet.
Cowboys from hell
vulgar dispay of power
all metallica up to black
yngwie - rising force
dragonforce - all ( )

Thin necks make you play faster because guitars with thin necks sound thin and bad, and you play fast to distract people from the bad tone.

well, if that's the stuff u wanna learn, then learn it in this order:

Metallica first (although it's more wank than shred solo-wise)
Then Pantera
DT & finally, Yngwie stuff...from that list anyways...

lots of thread on this, but since you worded it all so nicely...I'll help out!

"Easy shred song" is really a paradox, there really isn't an "easy" shred song...or it wouldn't be shred ^_^ but tracks like Always with me Always with You by Satch is always a popular one for noobs to play. Most satch stuff isn't that over the top and would be good for learning on.

always with em always with you is not that easy. Well I see almost eve3ryone **** it up on vids. :P there are 2 or 3 guys who play it well but the ret doesnt do anything for me. Notes there, emotion nowhere to be found. I don't see enough gitarist shape their notes or watch their tone. Too bad

As much as I hate to admit it, learning all the Metallica stuff is actually a very good way of getting better at guitar, both rhythm and lead. Their entire career is practically a dot-to-dot of getting better at guitar.

Obviously there are other artists who can take you furthar once you've done Metallica, but they are a damn good starting point.

Just a shame I'm not really into Metallica that much otherwise I'd probably have got better on the guitar much quicker
