Grateful for any tips.
Actually it doesn't have to take very long at all. It all depends on how good you are at practicing. If you read many books on how to develop some serious technique you'll have it in a year or so but the hard thing is to know the most sufficient way in how to practice
One of the best ways is to listen to other great players and take after them.
Listen a lot to classical pianists cause their mentality when talking technique is really good.
They know where to mentally so to speak. It's not just i want to learn how to play fast.

Re: Shredding

The OP should be killing it now, considering this thread was started almost 5 years ago!
