  • Today we will cover the right mindset and tools for you to start using your shred chops, in an improvised / jam setting.

    If you have ever spent some time building speed with a metronome - this lesson is for you. But please also note that the concepts explained here apply to all levels. So if you feel the techniques demonstrated in the example jam are way above your ability - then you should definitely check this lesson out - it is most relevant before you have built up your chops.
