Herman Li in Heroes of our Time.

If i put Herman Li in the title, nobody would visit.

Heroes of our Time Solo

At 00:11 to 00:13, he hits the whammy to make a vibrating sound. How exactly is that done? Help?

And after Sam Totman is done being gay, at 1:01 when he does that crazy strumming thing.

Any help would be appreciated!

He's probably tremolo picking.

Sorry, but why the **** would you want to imitate Herman Li?

Okay, now that I got that outta the way, yeah, it's probably that hand wah thing that he uses

I think it's the hand wah thing. He uses it later on in the solo too, so I'm pretty sure that's what it was.

How do these hand wahs work?

he pushes down on the LOCKING tremolo arm, and he lets go
it does that when it tries to spring back into tune

i will repeat

push down
let go rapidly

Your not a hippie, just a ****ing moron.

All he's doing is hitting the whammy as it lays over the strings. A weird way to explain it is just doing like soft karate chops on the tremolo bar... it's weird but that's pretty much what it is.
You might want to see Steve Vai, he does that as well.

EDIT: you can also do it with the tremolo facing away from the neck, as he did at 1:01.

if it's anything like whammy-ing without a whammy then i don't think we want to know


Hi...

Anyway he is doing that thing where you kind of flick the whammy bar and it vibrates producing that sound.

True life, nothing to do with hand wahs or anything. If you have a floyd rose or edge bridge try it yourself.

Society's doing great. There's a rise of people like PlayMadness. I feel pretty good about the way things are going.

Sounded like he just flicked the whammy bar, push it down and let it spring back into place and it will give that fast tremolo effect

The ring on his hand is used to control effects and such. It's probably used for a wah or filter adjustment at times. The product is called a WAG.

He bounces the tremolo bar back. He just sort of slides his hand off the end of the bar rapidly. It's not difficult.
