What is shredding?

Shred guitar or shredding refers to lead electric guitar playing that relies heavily on fast guitar solos. While one critic argues that shred guitar is associated with “… sweep-picked arpeggios, diminished and harmonic minor scales, finger-tapping and … whammy-bar abuse”, several guitar writers argue that rather than being a musical definition, it is a fairly subjective cultural term used by guitarists and enthusiasts of guitar music. It is usually used with reference to heavy metal guitar playing, where it is associated with rapid tapping solos and special effects such as whammy bar “dive bombs”. The term is sometimes used with reference to playing outside this idiom, particularly country, jazz fusion, blues and bluegrass.
