Shred Academy - Free Guitar Lesson by Brev Sullivan
Sullivan is a Miami based guitarist proficient in multiple genres.
He is the guitarist for Featured On Fridays (FOF), a shred-metal,
progressive group whose songs are a tour de force of wildly searing
instrumentals combining shred, jazz, country chicken pickin' and
even epic movie soundtrack style melodies. His dad is legendary
jazz multi-instrumentalist Ira Sullivan. "I had a rich childhood
growing up hearing my father play with jazz greats such as Jaco
Pastorius, Joe Diorio and others," says Sullivan. "I
picked up guitar, probably because it was the only instrument
my father Ira didn't play! Fans of Ira know he'd probably learn
guitar, too, if he wanted! " Brev has studied with Joe Diorio,
Dave Weisbrot and Simon Salz. Inspired by Joe Diorio's 20th Century
Intervallic Designs book, Brev is now introducing a similar style
to his listeners and students in a metal, progressive setting
combining dazzling string skipping and intervallic melodies.

played onstage with Joe Diorio, Simon Salz, Nestor Torres and
many other Miami jazz legends. Brev is currently working on finishing
an instructional DVD demonstrating a variety of guitar techniques
and different styles of music, as well as how to incorporate his
unique intervallic designs into metal and progressive rock. Current
schedule includes performing with FOF, appearing at clinics. He
is currently a demo product specialist for the IK Multimedia software
company demoing the new Amplitube software. He was a performing
artist at the 2008 Namm for The Square Drums Company (the company

2008 Oddity of the Year Award).
recently recorded a guest solo on several tracks, including one
with Ron Jarzombek (Spastic Ink), on the soon-to-be-released CD
by Fractured Dimension. Fans can definitely look forward to more
great music from Brev Sullivan, who states, "I still am a
student of guitar myself. I'm always learning some new technique
or song that's challenging to me, which I love to share with my
students as well."
