Once, I watched Star Wars episode 4. I timed myself so that I came right when the death star blew up.

Afterwards, Han Solo said "Great shot kid, that was one in a million!"
good examples would be
In the name of god - Dream theater (that song is a shred fest when it kicks in)
All the united abominations album
Yngwie malmsteen - far beyond the sun

the list is endless
string skipping , tremolo picking

The basis of all 'shred' is a great alternate picking technique. Sure, there are economy pickers out there, but they are somewhat rare. After that comes legato, string-skipping, sweep picking, tapping, etc. But the most important technique is alternate picking.

Sometimes a question is the best answer, and that is the best answer.

Everyone has their own idea of shred, for some it's blinding speed, for some it's amazing control, for some it's insane picking, everyone's idea is a little different.

Until you define what shred is, you can't say what techniques are involved.
