Ok, some guy thinks that Synyster Gates is a better guitarist than Herman Ree.
What does UG think?
My vote is with Herman...
#2
Have you seen "Synysters sweeping lesson" on YouTube? His technique is truly terrible. He holds the guitar like a little boy that has just picked it up.
Herman.

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.
#14
o you meant herman li? is this a serious question? some people compare herman li to guitarists like jimi hendrix and muhammed suicmez... synester gates is horrible compared to herman li.
#15
I prefer the studio enhancement kit to both of them.

I'm sure they'd both agree.

Jesus and dont understand how do you think this guys play the guitar well.
They are horrible. They just play notes randomly with no brain and no heart.
They play fast badly. This is not playing the guitar its just showing off badly.
Jesus go listen some stevie Ray Vaughn or David Gilmore.

That was horrible. I can do much better than that, and I'm an amateur guitarist who practices every now and then in his spare time.

The idea that he's considered professional and actually gets payed to play guitar the way he does is scandalous.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
#22
And to the currently 7 idiots who think theyre equal/gates is better... you must be a complete noob.
#23
I'm going for Gates, mainly cos Dragnonforce sounds like ass. And that's coming from someone whos into prog. IE Vai, Malmsteem, DT.

Synyster


Herman is a great guitarist but he can't play as good live. they are mianly good in the studio.

Syn is great in studio and live IMO

My vote is with Herman...

The term 'better' is completely opinionated. Meaning, there is no definite answer.
(and yet we get these questions all the time)
If we say that better = faster, then yea, Herman Li is better.
But faster =/= better.

Wow I was cringing the whole way through that video lol. It could have actually had a few good parts but he screwed those up as well. Pathetic. He should use some of the backstage make-up hairstyling time to actually practice. He probably doesn't even friggin warm up. And I heard Dragonforce is just as bad. My friend when to one of their US shows and he said they were out of tune lol. I dunno if thats true or not. I really hope it isn't. Because that would be an all new form of degeneration not seen up until now.
We're only strays.
#36
Look, I'm not saying these guys are great or eveen good, I'm just wondering who is better. Did I ever SAY that either of them are good? No, I just think Li is better in comparison.
