Guitar.com live: “the world’s most unlikely guitar hero,” Mrs Smith, came to us live from an undisclosed location to shed some shred knowledge.

The lesson covered many shred fundamentals, including how to achieve pinch harmonics and how they work (“science”), legato picking (or, more accurately, lack of picking), as well as some more broad creative topics.

Mrs Smith has captured the public imagination with her unbridled creative expression and shredding chops. In New York, her high-energy busking performances, concerts and off-Broadway shows have made her a local legend. Be sure to tap into her extensive shred knowledge with the full lesson above.
