This week's shredder is Mark Tremonti. He's a great player, and a fantastic songwriter. He's written huge songs for Creed, Alter Bridge and now his solo band, Tremonti. He's got a great sense of melody and song structure, and on top of that, he's a good singer and an amazing guitarist!

People tend to overlook his shred-abilities, since he spends more time playing the songs, and playing for the songs, but when he lets rip, he can really let rip!

I'm looking forward to having him tear my face off at Balloonfest this Saturday!
