On August 4, 2007, you can join the shred elite, or at least you can be in the same room with some of the shred elite at Shred School. The Shred School Web site says that Shred School is “the guitar players ultimate treasure trove of advice, secrets and insider information given directly by the experts.” The special guests will be Adam Jones of Tool, Dean DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots and Army of Anyone, Synyster Gates & Zacky Vengeance of Avenged Sevenfold, Stephen Carpenter of Deftones, John 5, and Herman Li of DragonForce. Shred School is being held August 4, 2007 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, CA. You can get more information from the MySpace page that is set up for the event.

This shred school thing seems pretty cool but I think I’m a little disappointed with the special guests. Not exactly a who’s who of shred guitar. I was expecting some real shredders to be teaching people how to get the best from that style, musically and business wise. Now that would be interesting. Still, not to complain-With bands like Coldplay taking over the world I think maybe I should just be happy that such an event is taking place!
