50 Fastest Guitarists of All Time
Guitar World exeeds the legal limit with this roundup — in alphabetical order — of the 50 fastest masters of the fretboard.
Herman Li & Sam Totman
SIGNATURE SONG: “Through the Fire and Flames”
ALBUM: Inhuman Rampage (DRAGONFORCE)
When the first Dragonforce album came out in 2003, critics were convinced that Herman Li and Sam Totman’s outrageously fast guitar solos were the product of studio trickery. However, Li and Totman later proved that they were the real deal both onstage and under the scrutiny of skeptical editors right here at Guitar World headquarters. Individually, Li and Tottman boast jaw-dropping speed and precision, but when they lock horns in tightly synchronized harmonies they can make heads explode from sonic overload. Who needs amphetamines? Just put on a Dragonforce’s Inhuman Rampage to jumpstart your day.
