Product Details


J. S. Bach is one of the greatest composers and most virtuosic musicians of all time. His amazing compositions are technically demanding, which make them the perfect match for heavy metal shred guitar. Shredding Bach introduces you to the unique style of this musical master and stretches your playing to the limits. It shows you all the essential techniques to play Bach's music on your electric guitar, including sweep picking, tapping, legato, and rapid alternate picking. Every example has been arranged to be as true and accurate to the original compositions as possible, with only minor adjustments made to accommodate the guitar and shred style. The accompanying CD features all of the examples recorded at multiple speeds to help you practice and to get you on your way to mastering Bach's challenging compositions.

"German Schauss has produced a highly professional package that is clearly aimed at the intelligent apprentice axe man (or woman), rather than the wannabe headbanger."
-Paul Fowles, Classical Guitar
