So my guitar lessons are done for the summer and I'm looking for some advanced technique that I could learn that would help tremendously. I've been playing for 7 or 8 eights. I'm technically classically trained, but I'm a self taught rock musician. I can play relatively anything you throw at me,(within reason of course). For techniques I'm not looking looking for something ****ty like vibrato or something easy like that. I'm talking like advanced tremelo techniques, shred techniques(I've never actually tried to seriously shred), advanced pentatonic scales... stuff like that.

any ideas? and if you guys could be so kind as to post links. thanks

Sweeping, 21 day method, you know that whole thing. I'd suggest learning some necrophagist songs too anything technical with weird time changes and sweeping is cool. Mabye explore saxaphone music (I really didn't get that from the article..).

lol anyway...

in the research i've done for how to shred, i found that you should take one lick of a solo that you really like and play it really slow until your muscles have it memorized. then increase speed until you play it actual speed. if you can't, then go back to the really slow muscle memory part. once you have that lick down, learn another, and another, trying to keep them unique to each other. after doing this enough and learning some entire solos, you should have a decent ability to shred (so i'm told)

i will definitely be trying this over the summer, and practicing a lot more.
