My friend thinks that Herman Li is the best guitarist in the world, and I know this isn't true, so I want to prove him wrong. Trouble is, I don't know of that many guitarists. So can someone do me a favor and post a video of a guitarist who's better than Herman Li?

David Gilmour would suffice, but if you show him that he'll just ditch him. So, Michael Angelo Batio, or Shawn Lane.

He's a pretty great guitarist, probably the best. Who knows?


Is he a solo artist or he's in a band

You cant say any guitarist is better than any other guitarist.
Its all opinion.

If hes talking about speed, theres much faster.

Listen to Shawn Lane's Gray Piano's Flying.

Or if you want to go straight technical proficiency...

Joe Satriani - Devil Slide
Steve Vai - Bad Horsie
Yngwie Malmsteen - Arpeggios from Hell
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Ok, you cannot judge the best guitarist in the world. You cannot compare guitarists of different styles to eachother. He can shred, but compared to some classical guitarists, no way!

Herman Li sucks, tell him to listen to some B.B. King, or Tony Iommi. But if he wants speed go with Yngwie or Battio

If he means great technicaly show him some Vai or something.
If he is just talking about the greatest Gilmour the best way to go show him some stuff off Animals or Whish You Were Here.
Then they'll take you to Cloughprior and shove you in the ground
But you'll stick your head back out and shout "we'll have another round"!

I think my friend would respond better to a guitarist who can play faster than him. But as I said, I don't know of any. Herman is the lead guitarist of Dragonforce, btw. Some magazine or some **** voted him the best in the world.

As much as I hate him sometimes, Yngwie.

Or show him Speed Metal Symphony.

Or just show him a live Dragonforce video. He'll realize how much of an idiot he is.

there'll never be a greatest guitarist among guitarists.. all guitarists are great with their respective music.. music is not competition. it's about expression.

Like I said, show him Satriani's Devil's Slide. Or better yet, some Al Di Meola.

i dont like Herman Li at all and i think old guitarist are 20X better like Stevie Ray Vaughan Jimi Hendrix Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page etc. They had great music and rhythm which i dont think Herman Li has any rhythm

I played Herman Li 1 0n 1 in basketball one day. I pwned his ass. Dude plays like a girl.

Do yall seriously think Herman Li is a good guitarist?
Dude, he is so freaking sloppy. Look up guitarist like Paul Gilbert, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Guthrie Govan. And go to the shred forum.

Who the **** cares. Its all opinion so how do you prove someone's better? It all depends on what you consider important to being good at guitar. Melody, improvisation, songwriting ability, and general musicianship, or playing balls-out fast?
