Unlike random YouTube videos, or those mega-lessons sites, this is a logical, progressive series of lessons designed to make you a better lead guitar player in just 10 weeks! You’ll get a step-by-step lesson guide to walk you through each section.

“This site is the best on the planet …hope they never take it offline” Steve D.

* Do you feel like your tone needs to be unlocked?

“Wow – what a great week… my guitar playing has improved more over the last week than it has over the last year.” -Richard

* Need a boost to increase your speed?TeachPhoto

* Want to audition for a band? Want to play gigs? Play better gigs? 

* Looking for a simple way to take your playing over the top?

“This site is amazing! …this has what it takes to inspire and keep you headed towards your goal. Scale charts, jam tracks, video examples, & supporting documentation. I’ve paid way more… and got way less…sadly! I wish I’d found this site years ago! “ -R. B.

*You don’t need thousands of lessons to be a better lead player, you just need the right lessons! ShredGuitarOnline’s groundbreaking 10-week course is based on a Musicians Institute class I created called Applied Rock Improvisation and later my best selling book Shred Guitar. This material is based on my STELAR system. Scales, Timing, Expression, Licks, Apply & Repeat.

Each week I’ll guide you through lessons on improvisation and harmony and theory (H&T). The H&T section is designed for guitarists. Every lesson includes multiple videos, with detailed explanations, PDFs with tabs, jam tracks at different speeds and an extensive phrase vocabulary. The material is designed so that after completing the 10 weeks you can use it over and over as an ongoing resource. There’s enough material here to keep you growing your skill and vocabulary for years.

As an added bonus in addition to the 10-week course I’ve included a section I call Power Tools (a custom technique builder.) That’s not all, buy purchasing the complete course you’ll have access to a continuing and building series of Classic Rock Solos and my exclusive Licks O’ the Week!

* Do you see yourself on stage playing like your heroes but need a system to get you there?

“I Really like this site, I’ve been practicing all the free time I have. It’s really motivating and keeps me organized with the limited time I have to practice. Small but important details really have great significance. Thanks for the eye opener Paul.” -Mogli

“Glad I found these lessons. They have been very good and well organized. You’re a great teacher!!” -Duncan
