I'm just wondering what good songs there are to learn to help introduce me into playing shred.

I eventually want to get to Paul Gilbert-type speed and songs.

Also, what good excercises/advice do you guys have?

read the advanced technique forum. A lot.

listen to songs you want to eventually be able to play and try to get them to half speed with no errors, then increase the tempo by 2 or 3 bpm.
