Hi everyone! To cut to the case - I've been playing for around 12 years now - mostly different metal genres, Djentier stuff, etc. I've always been the riff-guy when it comes down to composing and playing and therefore never invested much into solo-related stuff. My shredding abilities are getting better after months of daily exercise - accurate and fast but I'm simply lacking the exercises / diversity in exercises. So - what's your shredding-exercise? What helped you gain more speed and accuracy? Any recommendations? And, as a side question related to shredding: Did string gauge ever had a huge role in this for you? Heavier gauge for better playing "stability" or anything like that? Thanks in advance!
