when you say shred... can you be more specific? the first guy seems to think you mean like play fast thrash songs/solos but i was thinking more along the lines of sweep picking.

to improve your skills, use Kristopher Dahls shred master class on UG TV, that improved my shredding tenfold.

Learn 'Holy Wars... the punishment due' by megadeth, great song to boost your speed.

I Am A beginer shreader and i wanna know what some kool songs to boost my shreeding skills.

Im In to Metal So Yeah

Are you a beginner guitarist who wants to wank some licks out, or been playing and just getting into the art of shred?

If you are the latter, then I'd suggest checking out the arpeggios section of Serrana by Jason Becker. It's mostly commonly used sweeping patterns, and if you work on each one really slowly (I mean 25% speed slow) and then build yourself up, you can get some good chops going. For alt picking, work on sections of Steve Morse's legendary Tumeni Notes. Again you should slow it down a whole lot, as he's got the chops that come with being a reigning guitar master for 30+ years. If you want a nasty legato workout, try the tapping section in Sea of Lies by Symphony X. String skipping, left hand hammer ons... it's a toughie to say the least. There are pretty good powertab files on this site for each of the songs I've mentioned.

If you are the former, then stop now. Just because you want to shred doesn't mean you get to skip everything else. Build your way to that point, otherwise you will end up with terrible technique, piss poor time, play sloppy, and nobody will want to jam with you for being a total wanker.
