Hi there,

ever since first hearing them when their second album came out I have been totally amazed and mesmerized by the soloing efforts of the guitarists in the power metal band Dragonforce...
The whole computer game sounding solo's that Herman is right into and the harmonizations between guitarists and basically everything that makes it so magical... I would like to know how they do it all... if possible ;-)
so if anyone knows what i'm talking about or has any ideas about techniques they use or modes etc they use...
that'd be just awesome...

thanks for your time,

-tom

Dragonforce solo lesson number 1: Forget how to play the guitar.


But really, I did see them pull off the new song live, and it was pretty good. Maybe they sobered up or got better, and the studio stuff is pretty good.
