Your Guitar Shredder of the Week – Tony MacAlpine for Friday – Learn to Shred Like Tony [VIDEO]

Tony MacAlpine is our guitar shredder for the week, and we’ve seen some old songs, new songs, collaborations and learned a little about one of the premier guitar players out there. If you haven’t been aware of him before now, hopefully you’ve found a cool new guitar player to share with your friends!

Maybe you’ve also found some cool new ideas and licks you can learn from one of his early instructional videos, too! YouTube is a wonderful thing, you can find so much good guitar stuff on there to help get better.

He’s lost the hair (haven’t we all), but none of the chops. Tony MacAlpine is an amazing guitar player. Check out his discography (so far – he’s been on a few):
