If you're looking for a nice gift for the shredder on your list... Although the book is comprehensive, its not over-encumbered with an excess of charts and staffs full of notes, which can be confusing. The parts that are left for the student to work-out strengthens the lesson through a reinforcement of ear training, and new skills to learn like tapping. There is no substitute for many hours of practice. So to use my time wisely, Total Shred organizes and makes sense out of the theory stuff, has excellent practice tips, lots of live sounding backing tracks, and tabs of immediately useful musical exercises. It's as if someone has been down this same road before, asking the same kind of questions, and hear now finally, the answers have been provided!
THIS book is a systematic approach to playing faster, whether your goal is to become a "shredder" or just want to be able to play faster parts as they appear in your mind in whatever genre you may play.
The authors give you plenty of warm up material, which isn't new, but it's nice to have all in one place.
THEN, they move on to more "quick thinking" exercises with scales, and ways to think about the fretboard, with goals of how to improve systematically. I've never seen such in any book before now, and it is exactly what I was looking for.
Will this book help you? Well, if you can already play Yngwie at 280bpm, then probably not. However, for us mere mortals, it is a PERFECT set of material to help us get to the next faster level.
Thanks to the Alfred crew for this book. I'll use it in all of my classes now...
Very very few people know how to teach Alternate Picking and other challenging virtuoso techniques. German Schauss makes this easy for you even though you have to practice for endless hours to get there.
I am making a note of this because the term SHRED is used as a joke today where musicians that are NOT Alternate Pickers are considered shredders because magazines need to sells issues. But the term SHRED = VIRTUOSITY!!!
This book is for the new generation of guitarists that wishes to become a good players. I wish we had this back in the 80s when I was just a kid, but we were in the dark ages even though Shrapnel Records and its guitar luminaries we're very inspiring.
When it came down to, "How Can I Play Like That" we had very very limited resources and there weren't too many good teachers around.
So if you are starting out and you are taking your playing very seriously, this is one book you should buy along with SERIOUS SHRED from GERMAN also and all his books.
