i like dragonforce and all a lot, but that gives herman li no right to talk crap man, in this months issue of total guitar he said that he could play better solos that matt heafy in a jackass kind of way and then said they play like a bunch of 15 year olds, wtf man, trivium is an awesome band

Well he is a better guitarist...

Does that give him the right to be such a thunder****? No, it does not. He can boast that he plays kickass solos and I'll have no problem. However, when you start dissing other players and comparing yourself like that, you cross the line. After all, you can always learn something by jamming with another guitarist. Always.

yeah, guitar playing isn't a competition, it's a form of expression and it's supposed to come from the soul

malmsteen is my favorite guitarist and i cant even stand it when HE gets cocky (even though he has the right to) i dont care for this herman li guy even though he is amazing. i think hes nothing but a show off, at least malsteen does his solos to make him sound good, li just does it to look good

why would they even ask him such a stpid question, what the hell is wrong with GW? Maybe he siad that cuz Heafy is Jap. For those who dont know asian history Japs were the most vilent sick people, so I would understand if he said that just becasue Heafy is Jap b/c the stories are pretty damn disgusting.
#13
Ah. The guy seems overrated, anyways. In my opinion, atleast.
And no, I'm not some ignorant douche. I've seen videos and heard his solos. He can shred.
But frankly, I dont care.
Go ahead. Play so fast that you snap your strings, your neck and cut through your fingers.
Still wont give the music any soul.

Dude, you obviously know nothing about the world. Interviewers often TRY to make people look bad. Often. SOmetimes the interviewee just walks right into it.
#15
^obvisouly you are one of them who thinks it's okay to be like a prick! and so what if he said that heafy is bad, this is a land of free speech, why is it okay if someone says "I hate Emos and they suck ass" and wrong if Herman Li disses Heafy a little?

Racist fuck. Yes, the Japanese have a history of horrendous crimes against humanity but does that mean that EVERY Japanese person is a murderous psychopath? You apparently think so. And for the record, it's Japanese, not "jap," you ignoramus.

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?

I think you're kind of a hypocrite...

I dont think it's ever been universally "okay" to diss Emo music or the Emo trend. I believe it's just been a very easy target, and not often understood by people. When most poeple think of Emo, they think of Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance, and most their lyrics, not the actual music.

"and so what if he said that heafy is bad"
So what? So it's pretty cocky, egotistical and just plain asinine. If Li is saying that Trivium play like a bunch of 15 year olds, then he needs to back down. Everyone has their own playing style. Not EVERYONE wants to try and play 1365468446 notes per quarter second, okay?

dude, Im not racist at all. I am Korean and know that lots of people still dont like Japanese people, I think they are cool people, I have Japenese friends okay? I meant to say that maybe Herman Li is one of those people who dont like the Japenese, just a guesstimate, you cant call me a "racist ****" that was uncalled for.

i was just about to say that.

it really doesnt matter has anyone ever told you( not refering[sp?] to the hell patrol) that you are bad and things like that. that is all he did and i doubt he really even said that to mean that he is dissing matt heafy. read the article on this website. Herman sounds like a laid back guy from what ive ever read.

oh and he doesnt need emotion is his solos because that genre of music really just gets you like pumped up and headbanging.

how about you all shut up, cause this is retarded, grow up, and if your gonna bitch, at least do it in the right forum

Probably not a smart move for Li, but it's not like I haven't heard guitarists dissing each other before.
#31
meh, most bands really don't know what they're doing.
I'm not racist.

I hate everyone the same.

#32
Honestly guys, that kind of bravado and boasting is pretty a normal part of the whole rock and roll star thing. Herman says he's better than Heafy. Who gives a ****? If anyting, the statement made me chuckle. Calm down.

It's a little funny though, because both bands play immature music that appeals to 15/16 year olds. (which isn't a diss on teens because I just turned 16)

I think everyone is making premature conclusion cause we don't know what really the article said. Until we can read the entire article literally, i don't think is right to assume anything.

It really doesn't matter how good he gets he'll never be considered a guitar god like Dime Rhoads EVH SRV Gilmour Hendrix Clapton Page and many more..................

It's not a biased thing either its just thier names`will live on forever because of how influential they were

Herman says he improvises his solos in the studio. That's pretty cool considering his solos kickass. But he has no right to talk **** about other guys. If someone is giving 110%, they should be respected. There's a certain level where if you pass it, you're a good guitarist. I think Matt has met that mark and doesn't need to be dissed for what he does. Herman sounds like another Malmsteen.
