i think someone should do a dragonforce contest :P i wanna hear someone else try and play ''Through the fire and flames'' cos i find it really hard..... so if you can lpay dragonforce stuff start posting here and if you want to sort out the whole contest thing and listen to stuff go for it........................

this is insane.....i mean i agree but not to many a people or guitarist for that matter can just grab their guitar and hit the speed or massive riffs and solos of herman lee......
i seriously doubt this one will ever happen

Herman Li cant play anything outside the studio...


That being said, the song isnt really THAT hard the video makes it look much harder than it is.

I think stone is either 7 or 14 lbs

Edit I'm gonna go with 14 because it's rather unlikely you're 56 pounds

Its not all impossible. I can do "Dawn Over a New World" and "Heart of a Dragon." Thats pretty much it though.
#6
The songs aren't hard, the rhythms are really easy to play, just the leads are just stupidly fast..bet Herman Li can't even play most of that sutff twice though

In the studio it sounds great...but, live...no comment.

Its not that hard if you have a decent technique.......... You cant play for half a hour a couple of times week and expect to be able to play dragonforce solo's............ Ive been playing for about 5 years and for the last 2 years prob 3-4 hours of guitar each day.........

If i had a video camera id film it and post it but i dont have one soo yeah.....

Of course he can't, he improvises.

Silly woman.
I have seen him dozen of times, and trust, i know its a cliche, but it honest to god it isnt him, its Sam, and that doesnt mean Sam is crap, it just he drinks and doesnt warm up pre-gig. And if anyone who saw them pre-metal hammer will tell you they owned the stage.
But please lets not turn this into one of those horrid "WHY DO DRAGONFORCE SUCKAZOID?"
Can anyone actullay play "through the...." i can get down Herman's first solo, but in saying that at times the timing slips, so i cant truly say i can play it.

I ca do part of the solo in through the fire and the flames. A bit into though I'll forget what I'm doing and screw up so badly. It's kind of funny actually.

You will have to be more clear mate,
Cos theres two lead interludes, then they take it in turns to solo before returning to a dual harmony section

I'm talking the main solo. I just play a bit of both sams and hermans. Can't play it in full. It's like when I was first learning to play metallicas jump in the fire, I had trouble with some parts on the outro solo. I doubt I'd be good at playing the dragon force stuff anymore, I stopped playing shred and went to blues and frankly I like it better.

i would try to do some dragonforce but with my recording equipment (audacity and a microphone from the video game "karaoke karaoke revolution") i think it'd all be buzz at the end beacuse of all the tracks i'd have to make
but im going to get a line 6 toneport kb37 come december so i might give it a shot in the new year

he cant even play the solos live though...
watch his g4 video and he screws up a lot in it, but hes not as bad as sam or anything. When sam is bad, he is BAD. Ive seen videos where hes too drunk to play the correct power chrods through a whole chorus
#21
yeah, as if anyone here can play TFF..... I'm sure its possible to get parts of it done, but youve gotta have some kickass mixing and arranging capability do get it to sound like their recording. I mean cmon, they cant even play their own song live.
#22
i can do Valley of the Damned without the solo but i can't make intro sound right so i have to do rythm

i think there's a loophole everyone's been missing. no specific rules are really in place, save for being dragonforce but everyone seems to wanna try playing a song. no doubt someone could do the vocals to a song seeing and that's recording too :P

Well we all know it won't happen and you don't say too enthusiastic(no offence)

Not saying nobody can play them but not many can!
