A while back our friend Trey Xavier of Gear Gods performed an experiment to see if an acoustic guitar can shred underwater and he's been completely outdone by Herman Li, who previously shredded on the famous Dragonforce song "Through the Fire and Flames".
Herman tried his luck again at last week's Full Metal Cruise VII, and this time it wasn't quite as successful. According to Li:
“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 was 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 an 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.”
