Work on your arpeggios and practice sweeping across them. That's a definite shred technique. Also, work on 3 to 4 notes per string legato runs. Nothing spells shred more than lightning quick legato licks. You could still work in E minor if you want, but I would always recommend learning other scales (major, minor, pentatonics, etc) but if you're just wanting to hammer out techniques, then work in E minor (I did). Oh, don't forget tapping techniques. You missed a killer issue of Guitar World a couple issues ago... went over all these techniques for shred heads.
