That's a kickass solo BUT:
1. you really need to master all of the techniques to play that
2. you MUST have a Digitech Whammy-Pedal to play many parts of that solo



I also like this video here because it sucks:

Almost everyone said they suck when they actually play live so I think they're only good because of the sound goes through computers to make it sound more accurate but they are awesome on the cd.


How much would the digital whammy thing cost anyway a lot?

can You or Kris play that? biggrin.gif or anyone on GMC

The Digitech Whammy is around 200$


When i first heard Dragonforce's album i was blown away - i really liked them! I was listening to them for a long time but than i saw that poor video on YouTube and stopped listening their music.

And NO - i can't play it. And i bet Herman is the only person in the world who knows (or not) what he is (isn't) playing because there is shitload of notes there and Whammy is screaming all over the place.
Anyway - GOOD LUCK playing that! smile.gif

I can play the solo from 'My spirit will go on' if that's any consolation.

Dragon force is a terrible band, really. I never liked them. Ever since I watched 'Herman li and Sam totman vs. MARTY FRIEDMAN' (The name of the file should be comical enough) I found out where they stood as guitarists. Namely: Nowehere.

God, that's not even fair, poor Dragonforce sad.gif . Marty is awesome(IMO one of the best guitarists ever), but Dragonforce is still young, and they were a little better in that vid than the GuitarWorld one, what annoys me is their tapping(beeping) wacko.gif . If they practice, and clean up thier playing to what they sound like on the album they'll be awesome. smile.gif

I think all of you should give them a break.

I'm not saying they are playing perfectly but I really don't see the need to bash them like this. And for brushing up stuff on the computer, I don't know if they do or don't but even if they did - so what? Every otherb and out the there brushes up stuff on the computer, just that it isn't something you normally discuss (except Slayer, who admitted in some interview that they speeded up the songs simply cause it sounded better that way).

I like them, I think their music is really good and I wouldn't stop listening to a band 'cause they suck live. Many bands suck live but are good in studio. And some bands suck in studio version but rock live.

Anyway, that's my two cents.

Take Steve Vai, Satch, Cooley and other great guitarists - they all rock live as in the studio!

Blind Guardian is the band that play songs perfectly live - their concerts are simply awesome.

I mean i don't say they are not allowed to make a mistake - but DragonForce suck bigtime live!

It's just hilarious that they make themselves out to be some of the best guitarists in the world (and are marketed as such), Herman Li has won various awards for his playing and they're pretty average shredders.

Oh man, I've seen people who think Herman Li is a shredding God.. little do they know..

And Sam, I don't even want to talk about him. If you're claiming Sam Totman played that solo note for note in 'Through the fire and the flames' you must be joking.

Pavel: Yeah, Blind Guardian are awesome live. Also, DT on the Octavarium tour were pretty note for note spot on.
