Video Instructions

Here is the first week of our 18 week Shred-Machine program.  In the 18 week program you will find instructional videos, the all-important backing tracks, lead sheets and rhythm charts, diatonic scale charts in all seven positions in multiple keys, pentatonic scale charts in all five positions in multiple keys, minor arpeggio charts in multiple keys, major arpeggio charts in multiple keys, and of course the program directions (see Lesson Handouts below).

This program has been designed and beta tested with you in mind.  Not only will you develop the chops that you've always wanted, you will also develop a thorough knowledge of the fretboard and the ability to solo in any and all keys.  You'll be able to solo using different modes.  All of this will give you the tools necessary to develop your own personal style on the guitar.

Week 1 is free and each week is $5 afterwards.  Dive in and get started.
