Advanced Guitar Theory and Technique Applied to the Metal and Shred Genres explains theory well in an easy and entertaining way. I thought I had to memorize hundreds of scales to understand theory but you really only have to memorize one. I love the Phrygian and Harmonic minor modes. I'm going to use them alot in the songs that my band is working on. I also really liked all of the practice tips. They help me to play much cleaner and the speed is comming along too. There are alot of TABs in this book that make for great practice exercises and also gave me terrific ideas for future solos. I haven't tried any of the sweep picking stuff yet but there is alot of information and examples on that too. I would reccomend this book.Advanced Guitar Theory and Technique Applied to the Metal and Shred Genres

Advanced Guitar Theory and Technique Applied to the Metal and Shred Genres is a great book. It has a lot of information, and it isn't one you can finish over a weekend. It has about twice as many pages as most of my other guitar books. The theory section really opened my eyes, and I didn't realize how much theory I already knew. I just wasn't using it, and Advanced Guitar Theory and Technique Applied to the Metal and Shred Genres showed me how. It really took the confusion out of it for me. It has some great scales for us metal players...lots of exercises and licks, too. I also really like the arpeggios. Some of the advanced ones will take me a while to play, but I'll get there. I would recommend Advanced Guitar Theory and Technique Applied to the Metal and Shred Genres to any guitar player who want to play solos.

This book is great! I already had a decent knowledge of basic theory before I got this book, that wasn't the purpose I purchased it. I got it to work on sweeps and my speed and, however, knowing the theory behind what I'm doing is great knowledge and really does help me understand why certain things work with certain backings and such. This book totally satisfied my hunger for more knowledge of guitar. It really does help a lot. In my spare time, I read and practice what's in the book, it is a great guide to becoming a shredder. I totally recommend this book!

I read the reviews, I gave the book a chance and man I have learned ALOT from this book. Especially modal theory that really counts to us shredders and such a valuable thing to know. I recommend you should get it, the book is simple and very well explained concepts of theory. The little insignificant downside for me is that it wasn't written in notation form, as i read and study my theory sight reading. But other than it also gives you little legato exercises to practice your legato and build up speed which most of us need.

This book/cd has some nice information that is geared more towards the metal
guitar styles. It teaches some useful scales and techniques etc... but is in no means
a complete theory book. But gives you a lot of the tools for the metal guitarist!!!
