I rofl'd at the Mario sounds that Herman Ri made... Funny ****.
whoa, newwaytodie is apparently married to every member of Dragonforce.
Dragonforce are mediocre and 99.9 percent of their songs are a joke. why are you stroking this guy so hard when there are a billion other guitar players who can play circles around him. and I'm not talking about speed because that really isnt an impressive display of your skill being able to play something fast, putting emotion in your playing is far more impressive to me and countless others. there are alot of blues guitarists who would make Herman Li look like a hack while playing a quarter of the notes he does.
I dont know where this stupid "speed = talent" way of thinking came from but anyone can play fast as hell despite not knowing what exactly it is they're playing. all you need to do is play his guitar part slowly and progressively speed it up until you can play it as fast as he does, anyone can do it within hours, doesnt mean they're guitar gods.
i remember a little while back herman and sam were interviewed on mtv2 headbangers ball. herman li was asked how long it takes to come up with a solo and he said "overnight". that's exactly it, he doesn't put **** into what he plays he just plays random notes really fast.
yeah, he plays like Kerry King (not a good thing).
I can honestly say that Slash is a much, much better guitarist than Herman Li. you think Herman Li would ever come up with anything like the two solo's from Novemeber Rain? hell no because he most likely cant.
What bugs me about Herman LI and that Totam guy is that, they think they are amazing, better than anything else out there. But alot of their stuff isn't too hard for other guitarists to do, I lol'd so many times at their real betcha cant play this video. Especially totams "tapping"
And like Rev0lver said if he comes up with solos overnight, then all he is probably doing is playing scales, mashing notes together and then goes and plays it fast and calls it a solo. Sure, I couldn't play it but, it's not very impressive either.
I finger tap on an electric bass, so yeah, I didnt find that tapping to be spectacular either because the tapping I do is way the **** harder then it is on guitar strings and that was his result. ha ha. sweet.
Dragonforce sucks, no two ways about it.
^ dragonforce along with the rest of the power metal genre are disgraces to the music world
oh lordy. if all you are going to do is spread your distaste for a particular genre then just don't come in certain posts at all, please.
