The Guitar Shred Show bio is below:
"Metal fans that have always wanted to pick up a guitar and shred but don't have the drive to learn or the money for an axe can do so now at www.guitarshredshow.com/
. The site features an animated guitar tutorial taught by Mr. Fastfinger, who shows various techniques (The Exploding Guitar) before teaching a lesson and allowing you to practice on your own, completing your lessons with a jam (The Mountain Of The Tapping Dwarves). The various phrases and solos are controlled by the letter keys on any keyboard, while the obligatory six-string showboating (whammy bar, tapping) is controlled by the number keys."
