Probably one of the fastest shred guitarists around at the moment, Herman Li (Dragonforce) is putting on a series of workshops at several European venues. These events are sponsored by Ibanez and attendees will be able to see Herman shred (although , like the wings of a hummingbird, they won’t be able to see his fingers (oh purlease!)). In addition, those lucky enough to attend will be able to field questions for Herman concerning guitar technique, gigging and his experience of the music industry, generally.
