Herman Li Guitar Clinic -- Cerritos, CA -- April 14th, 2009
 
wow what a birthday i had!!!! (speaking of birthdays, nobody made me a birthday thread :bouville: ) Herman Li was awesome on the guitar and was very nice at answering the questions, even the stupid ones that people asked. the highlight for me, besides meeting him, was when he said "I'll shit on your head" haha

Here's what he played

Heroes Of Our Time
Reasons To Live
The Last Journey Home
Through The Fire And The Flames

Herman Ri is a funny excuse for a guitar player.

He's not a bad guitar player, he's just not "the shit" like everyone seems to think he is.
The main reason I can no longer stomach Dragonforce is their fans and the mainstream reaction to them, ie. thinking Li is the fastest guitarist alive.

Fastest? No. If people think that's fast, they should check out Mohammed Suicmez of Necrophagist (who I love), or maybe Chris Arp from Psyopus (who is so fast, I actually find their music difficult to like, because I can't even wrap my feeble brain around it :eyes:). Then there are not only the guitarists (both of them) but also the [B]bass player[/B] from Origin. Those dudes are all sick. No, Herman Li is not the shit. He ain't bad, but he ain't the shit (IMHO).

I'm not arguing with that, but the common view of Dragonforce within mainstream media, music fans, and 12 GH players is that their guitarists, especially "the asian one", are the fastest.

Valley of the Damned is a great power metal album, the others arent so great, but none of it is mindblowingly fast, or amazingly musically impressive in any regard.

The main problem with Dragonforce, asides from their retarded fans, is that it's all fast. And all the same fast. Their music is boring after two songs.

Thats the thing that kills it: the repetitiveness. Write a slower song, different tuning, different vocal line, step out of the "safety zone".
