Summer Shred Bootcamp

Attention aspiring shredders!

Have you always struggled with speed in your lead playing? Have you always wanted to shred but always hit a wall? Do you have issues with consistency and hand synchronization?

If so, I’ve created a program just for you.

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • A proven practice program that will transform your playing

  • Individualized mechanical analysis of your playing

  • Instructions for correct mechanical implementation of shred techniques

  • Weekly group class to share progress, results, practice tips, struggles, etc.

  • Group spreadsheet where progress and tempos will be shared

    • You will be able to not only see your peers’ progress but also mine as I will be posting my progress along with you

  • Weekly 1 on 1 lesson with mechanical breakdown and instructions

  • Motivation from seeing you, your peers, and me grow and improve along side you

  • ACCOUNTABILITY! Not only to me but to your peers in the Shred Bootcamp


I am looking for around 6 students to do this together so I will be holding online auditions to see if you’re a good fit for the program. This will be entirely online so no matter where you are in the world you can participate. I will have you do the same practice regiment that transformed my playing.


Here’s what I’ll be looking for in students:

  • Some experience in lead guitar playing

  • Some ability to solo and/or improvise

  • A commitment to 2 hours of dedicated practice time per day, at a minimum of 5 days per week.

    • Initial practice sessions may only take 30-60 minutes as you build a technical foundation and fix mechanical issues

  • Availability for the weekly group classes and 1 on 1 lessons

Make the best of this summer and transform your playing forever!

"When I heard about your course I was somewhat skeptical because attaining speed hasn't been easy and I had come to the conclusion that to reach shred speeds I should've started my journey at a younger age.  Within 2 weeks of the bootcamp I had made strides that I did not expect to make. My timing and technique has improved tremendously.  By the end of the first month I had doubled my speed with several different licks.  You gave me the tools and showed me the process to setting my fretboard on fire. Thanks Ben!!"

Shred Bootcamp with Ben was tons of fun! If you do everything he says and put in the work you will see the results! My hand synchronization and speed both made great improvements. The group aspect of it all was really neat. Everybody got to hold each other accountable, and it was really awesome getting to know one another as well as seeing the progress everyone made throughout the week. I would highly recommend it, and I look forward to next summer!
