Over the last few weeks we’ve caught up with the key players within the fret burning community.
And we’ve compiled exclusive interviews with the genre leaders – henceforth known as the RUSHONROCKRiffLords.
Today we feature Dragonforce star Herman Li!
Riff Lord: Herman Li
Current Album: The Power Within
Signature riff: Through The Fire And Flames
First song learnt: Nirvana’s Polly – it had the easiest chords!
Favourite song played: The Forgotten by Joe Satriani. I love it.
Favourite Dragonforce song: Valley Of The Damned. It’s one of the first songs we ever wrote and it’s always been a great song to play anywhere in the world.
Favourite rock song ever: It has to be The Final Countdown by Europe!
Favourite other instrument: I actually enjoy production. It’s a big part of what I do now as a musician.
Your Riff Lord: Predictable but it’s a tie between Satriani and Vai.
