Original Speed Kills by Michael Angelo Batio

Speed Kills 1991

Speed Kills 1991 is the original "shredder's bible" created over two decades ago and is still a standard reference for neoclassical guitarists. Although Michael recently revised this program it's difficult to top the original because there's still plenty of relevant information taught here. So relevant that the YouTube video from Speed Kills 1991 continues to get more than 5,000 views a day. You should also check out the revised version of this program: Speed Kills 2010
