Shred with Shifty!

Posted on June 1, 2023

Join as Shiflett engages with the biggest names in the guitar world, delving into their most iconic solos and the art of playing guitar with exclusive video on Volume.com

Punk veteran, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Americana, and rock songwriter with a forthcoming solo album, and modern-day guitar hero Chris Shiflett is now adding a new show to his list of accolades, SHRED WITH SHIFTY.

I love guitar playing, and in particular, I love lead guitar playing (not to mention all things related to lead guitar playing: amps, pedals, stories about recording, and of course, guitars). My new show, SHRED WITH SHIFTY, was born out of the fact that I spend an awful lot of time watching people on the internet explain guitar parts almost right, so I thought, what if I could just go to the source and find out what my favorite players actually did on the solos I love? I’m about halfway through doing the interviews for this first season and the lineup is insane plus I’ve already got a big new bag of hot licks to learn. Working on launching this show has been a good reminder of why I picked up a guitar in the first place – because it’s really, really fun.” – Chris Shiflett

Each and every episode gets inside what it was like in the recording studio where some of the most iconic guitar solos were created and highlights aspects of each solo that only the artist knows. Alex Lifeson talks about how the “Limelight” solo was pieced together in the studio, while Rivers Cuomo discusses why his go-to “guitar store” lick is a classic from super shredder Yngwie Malmsteen. Wonder how Richie Sambora put together the “Wanted Dead or Alive” solo? We have you covered. Need a breakdown of the chords to Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out?” No one knows the nuances better than Nile Rodgers himself.

Guests for the first season  of SHRED WITH SHIFTY include: 

Nile Rodgers
Brad Paisley
Alex Lifeson (Rush)
Mike McCready (Pearl Jam)
Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi)
Rivers Cuomo (Weezer)
Charlie Starr (Blackberry Smoke)
