Shred Energy

Some people think that the energy to shred for a whole gig comes from the Sun, the Moon and the tides of the Ocean. This of course is not true.

Real guitar energy is found in the form of the humble sandwich !

You do however need certain elements to be in place before you can obtain your energy fix. For instance if you've just done a shopping trip and your fridge is full then it's perfect. You'll actualy be doing your wife a favour by clearing up some space so she can work




Next all you need to do is think about mix and match. It's a sandwich so remember that Elvis gave us the important lesson that ALL things go together.





Remember,
To obtain the shred energy you need 3 pieces of bread ! Think of the third piece as that picking hand reaching onto the fretboard to give you that extra little bit.



And then you are ready to draw the energy into your hands by pushing the sandwich into your mouth as fast as possible, freeing up more time to practice that wierd Dorian run you heard last night.

Re: Shred Energy

Or you could just scull a couple of red bulls.

I think I might try the 3 pieces of bread next time.

Re: Shred Energy

Quality sandwich: lots of cheese and meat... although I'm a bit cold on white bread- just my pref, but I like heartier breads.

Re: Shred Energy

I am somewhat concerned about the colour of your glass of coca-cola there Ben I hope it hasn't been spiked!!

Although.......i suppose it ends up that colour eventually!!!!

And I gotta try me one of these 3-breaded sarnies
