You have to be more specific... Learn EVERYTHING about shredding? How long have you played for? How fast are you going to go? like Metallica, or faster/slower?

uhh, learn pentatonics, and the modes all up and down the guitar, jam with a metronome constantly, play up and down scales incessantly with a metronome making small speed increases as you go, practice like nuts!

yeah i wanna get john petruccci good.. so i practise my scales constantly with and without a metronome... that and just picking 1-2-3-4 on each string up and down the neck slow then fast helps improve my finger quickness

shred like dragonforce, even though its way easy. play 3 different notes like 3 times each at like 180 bpm, then random pick harmonic like 2 strings up,it impresses those clueless to guitar muscianship...

Do you really need Pentatonic and stuff? I was just learning the modes (Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, Locrian), but focusing on Ionian and Locrian. And using a metronome, of course. Fastest I can play is just eighth notes at 180 BPM. (I can play all of Children of Bodom's Touch Like Angel of Death's lead sans solo)

I wouldn't consider Dragonforce shread, just sweeping.
