So glad to see you doing live stuff after being a fan of you for a decade. I remember you inspiring me the same way like Iron Maiden did. I used to go on the dragonforce site all the time. I was obsessed with you back in 2005. Loved that you played Ibanez. You made me want to grow my hair and self teach myself guitar. I ended up taking lessons from Matthew Mills. He also taught Jason Richardson. He’s local.

Mental state once you have skill should pretty much consist of “I’m good, but I could be better”

I don’t know DragonForce outside of Through the Fire and Flames, but all these videos with Herman and guests have been incredibly valuable. Loads of good info and perspectives. By the end of the videos, I’m motivated and ready to go

Can't speak for everyone else, but this is an immensely profound interview for an aspiring guitarist like myself. Thank you Herman (fellow Hong Kong guitarist!🙌🏼) and Tosin.

I suck but I'm still too proud to learn from a 5yr old Asian kid that doesn't speak English. :P

There is absolutely a balance of ego in playing! I've always said deep down you have to understand that you are good, however all players are equal. There can even be amazing opportunities to learn from beginners!

“Stevie Ray Vaughn wasn’t playing over giant steps at 300 bpm,” I mean, not as well known but he was also an amazing jazz guitar player, so he probably could have
