Alfred Publishing and the National Guitar Workshop bring us Intelli-Shred: The Thinking Musician's Guide to Incredible Guitar Soloing. Intelli-Shred offers an in-depth look into the mechanics and concepts behind guitar solos by artists like Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Randy Rhoads, John Petrucci, and others. Exercises and etudes challenge and motivate students and enable them to build strength, speed, dexterity, and fretboard knowledge. An enclosed CD included demonstrates all the examples in the book. You can order it from the National Guitar Workshop’s on-line store.
