String Theory

01

This in-depth visual handbook combines both theory and fretboard visualization in one. If you're looking to unlock the visual nature of the guitar without having to over-think your way through, this masterclass will make that a possibility for you. Improvise and traverse the neck without having to stay stuck in the box any laonger.

Learning Level

Beginner Guitarists

Prerequisite

A basic understanding of theory and some guitar playing experience.

Action Plan

Enhance ear-training and apply harmonic concepts to the guitar neck.

Connect Your Ears To The Frets

02

The key to fretboard freedom is first developing your ears to harmony. Knowing theory is one thing, but sufficient ear-training is essential to properly navigate the music you already know and love. The next step is to apply that theory knowledge and training to the neck and over time any instrument will start making more sense to you, let alone the guitar.

Who Is This For?

05

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

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.

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!
