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!
