    Hallo everybody!
    I came across a quite cool blog on guitar shredding <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.thewizardofshred.com/">http://www.thewizardofshred.com/</a><!-- m --> that i think noone has posted about yet.
    The blogs are written by some Danish guy named Claus and hes quite hell of an alternate picker (as you can see on the vids) :D
    His bogs are mostly lessons on how to develop speed and a couple of other things, and they're quite good and intresting to read. The only problem is that the site seems like a scam; he "over-writes" things alot and uses chicks to get more viewers (although theres nothing wrong with the chicks :cool: ), so read with caution ;)
    Anyway its free so have a look if you want to..

    -AZ

    (ma first post btw :cool: )

    Wow, he is actually quite an insane picker. I hate when people give themselves these gimmicky names though. Another player to add to the 'players to watch when want to feel shit' list.

    haha the monkey lord isn't pretentious. I meant how he claims to be like the Wizard Of Shred, and there is that guy The Sultan Of Shred. I mean, he is no wizard.

    I think Chappers is one of the most honest and coolest guitar players around. Claus is a nice guy but the site is more a show off imo, with some good concepts. And Chappers plays music, not just shredding like Claus.. :mad:
    "the Monkey Lord" is also way more Epic than the "sultan or "wizard" of shred :cool: :mad: :cool:

    it was more of the help people get better for free that reminded me of chappers rather than the name or other attributes
