All I'm saying is having Duane Allman play against Herman Li would be like a second dropping of the A-Bomb.

last time i checked herman li was chinese

well i'm a damn jap but i find americans more talented because i think that japanese music sucks ass, mainly because they throw in random english words or phrases that have no relevance to the song, or they end up pulling a bono and try counting to for and go 1, 2, 3, 14!!!

...hmm its a hard call but if i use StaticX as an example the solo that john5 did on (i cant remember the name o the song) was so much better than the one their guitarist did (their guitarist is japanese)

Chinese, Japanese... Same thing. Just like my Mexican brethren are the same thing as the Cubans and Puerto Ricans.

So . . . if Herman Li was born in Hong Kong when it was still a part of the UK, does that make him an American?

sorry I've live in a whitebred town in which the only noticable minority are mexicans and the asian and black population are both 5 (not percent thats the total number of both not combined) so I'm used to getting stupid comments like that

It still applies, the question is about asian guitarists, not just Japanese guitarists. And your definition of the difference between Cubans, Puerto Ricans, and Mexicans is still inaccuate.

America has John Petrucci, so.....


+1 haha

but really you should make it "western" or "asian". I live in China and I do have to say that there are a few good ones, but nothing too exceptional that would just stand apart from what there is in a western country.

2 cuba is a communist country

3 puerto rico is a territory of the united states and had the oppurtunity to become a state but voted against it
