Best 10 Shreds

Wikipedia describes a shred as follows: “Shred guitar or shredding is a lead playing style for the electric guitar, based on various fast soloing techniques. Critics have stated that shred guitar is associated with “sweep-picked arpeggios, diminished and harmonic minor scales, finger-tapping and whammy-bar abuse”, while other guitar writers say that rather than being a musical definition, it is a fairly subjective cultural term used by guitarists and enthusiasts of guitar music. It is usually used with reference to heavy metal guitar playing, where it is associated with rapid tapping solos and special effects such as whammy bar “dive bombs”. The term is sometimes used with reference to playing outside this idiom, particularly jazz fusion and blues.”

An acquired taste!
