Speed Accelerator

01

Speed comes with control and control comes with time. The questions is, what do we do with that time as we practice? That's where the 5 Course Masterclass set itself apart. You'll learn how to identify the problematic areas of your technique to make the necessary adjustments needed to unlock your full playing potential through speed and expression.

Learning Level

Intermediate Guitarists

Prerequisite

Identify and isolate problematic areas in your playing and apply a method that turns them into good habits.

Action Plan

Sufficient skill and the areas of picking, legato, sweeping, and tapping.

Raise Your Technical Proficiency

02

Technical proficiency requires a music understanding of time or time-feel. When you can properly train your ear to harness various time signatures, polyrhythms, and subdivisions you can break out of the box and develop a sense of creativity around what you practice and ultimately play.

How It Works

05

Weed out Bad Habits In Your Playing

Identify the problematic areas of your current state of technique.

Apply Correction Where Needed

Develop new (good) habits on the fretboard and set yourself up for continued growth on the instrument.

Develop A Sense of Direction.

Know what you have to work on from day to day and track just like you're in the gym.

Mitigate/Rehabilitate Injuries

Rehabilitating techniques build right into your new routine without any extra thought.

Who Is This For?

06

This course is for the true technicians of the instrument. The true shred enthusiasts.

For the problem solver. For the outside thinker. For the action-taker.

My story starts with a record called "Surfing With The Alien" by Joe Satriani. When I first started playing I always craved more. More notes, more modes, a greater challenge that surpases my current level. This body of work spurred this craving and I've been hooked ever since.

If you've experienced something like this, then I belive this course will truly resonate with you.

If you consider yourself a hard worker yet looking to save huge amounts of time while getting immense results in your technical proficiency. Then you and I are already on the right page. Let's get to work.

Al Joseph

Chief Instructor of The ShredFest Academy

AJ began his Professional Career as a lead guitarist after his brief time at world-renown music school Berklee College of Music. His 2013 debut record, "Out In The Open" caught the attention of Jan Cyrka, the legendary founder of Jam Track Central. This put Al along-side the worlds most prolific modern guitar artists such as Guthrie Govan, Andy James, Marco Sfogli and so much more.

After a decade of shredding heads he noticed a real need in the guitar community, that so many other guitar enthusiasts yearned to play better thus sharing their own passion for the guitar as well. Now it's AJ’s mission in life to share his knowledge of over two decades with guitarists all around the world who are striving to enhance their skills as well. Welcome to the ShredFest Academy!

I'm confident you'll make the progress you need to make throughout this course because the same methods have worked for me. I'm no god. I'm just a nerd who loves to work hard and do what he loves.

Course Curriculum

Cycling Methodology

A commonsensical method, yet revolutionary for technical proficiency and control. The key hear is focusing on the problematic areas by using the metronome in a way that prevent interruption. that means no stopping to adjust while you get more reps in while you enhance your rhythmic awareness. This way you can get more repetitions in thus achieving a high comfort level with your movements.

Left Hand Mechanics

Again, your ears are the gateway to speed and accuracy. When you learn how to control a single note you learn how to control the many. This concept coupled with repetition will blow open your physical and mental barriers.
