Real Guitar Hero >> Fake Guitar Hero

So you won the Guitar Hero contest at your local GameStop? Oh, and what’s that? You can flawlessly execute Through the Fire and Flames? On expert difficulty, no less — wow.

Prepare for bubble-burstage.

Your skills are jack squat compared to Herman Li from the actual band — DragonForce. This inhuman freak shreds faster than a Cuisinart.

I have officially begun growing my hair out.

    I used to think Yngwie Malmsteen was the man… this guy pimp slaps Yngwie and lights his ashes on fire with his solos. This dude is insane. I could practice for 30 years and never get that good…. and to think this guy is SELF TAUGHT!!!! Blows my mind.

    Scarily though, and I’ve heard this from a professional speed metal guitarist… the song is harder in guitar hero III on expert than it is on a real guitar. His reason? “You cant strum that stupid button fast enough to catch every note”.

    I’d hate to see the GH3 version on expert w/ the hyperspeed hack on.

    man, he is wickedly fast, but i still don’t dig the band. what kind of band calls themselves DragonForce? you know, now that i think of it, i’m pretty sure i saw these guys at the last SCA gathering in rural Alabama.

    okay, maybe not.
