Speed Kills is the first complete overhaul of the original Speed Kills program. The original course was created in 1991 by Michael Angelo Batio and soon gained the reputation as “the shredder’s bible.” It explains advanced picking techniques as taught by the fastest guitarist on the planet. Speed Kills was revised in 2010.
The key to speed and accuracy is to pay attention to a few precise details of both the picking and fretting hands. Without proper instructions you’ll never understand these details- and who could be better at explaining this stuff than “The World’s Fastest Shredder”? (according to Guitar World Magazine)
