Underwater (Guitar) Love
Where there's a will, there's a way. Where a Pool, there's a guitar solo under water. So thought the Herman Li of DRAGONFORCE, whose last record "Reaching Into Infinity" very impressed, and went out at this year's Full Metal Cruise VII of baden. Along with his guitar.
Herman Li was during his guitar solos with a snorkel, armed under the surface of the water, while the guitar drifted on the water. How it works and looks like is shown in the following Video, which DRAGONFORCE are now published. Li explained to the action, that it was a Trick he had trained for years. The Whole thing was an idea he had tried at home, but before the Gig at the Full Metal Cruise even further before again had the opportunity to try.
“It's not a trick that I have practiced for over a year. I tried it in my own pool at home, but that was a year ago, and I haven’t had a chance on this tour to practice it. And the idea came... You know, the underwater guitar solo which is cool, but I didn \ ’t play in the water long enough, because there's only how long I can hold my breath for. So this time we're gonna do to underwater snorkeling, guitar solo, where I’ll play over a minute of a guitar solo in the water, breathing through a snorkel, with just my hands coming above the water, with my special customized waterproof guitar that Ibanez Custom Shop built for me.”
