Dragonforce axeman Herman Li has recommended that budding guitar players practice their instruments standing up.

br /> The Ibanez signature artist, who is considered to be one of the world's fastest guitarists, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that when he was learning the instrument he used to watch a lot of live videos in addition to instructional tapes.

"Instructional videos show you perfect technique, but don't really show you how to play standing up," he remarked.

He added that sometimes he would master something sitting down, but when he attempted it standing up he could not play it well at all.

Another learning strategy that Li picked up while teaching himself to play guitar was practising in the dark, which enables him to hit the right notes without looking at the fretboard.

Dragonforce are currently touring the US, but will be back in their native UK on June 13th to perform at Download Festival.
