Herman Li vs Brian Haner Jr. [aka Synyster Gates]?

Okay, I will admit that these two guitarists DO have talent. The only thing, is that I don't really like their styles, and they are kind of messy. And they are both VERY overrated.

Which do you prefer, Rock and Pop?

Herman's special effects annoy me. Plus, it's just too fast so it's just obnoxious to me.
"Syn" would probablybe better if he stuck with jazz guitar in school instead of joining Avenged Sevenfold.

I really don't like either, but I think I will have to go with Synyster Gates.
Update: Hey Lucy!

And KP:
I have heard that they speed up their material, but I have yet to get any proof as to the truthiness of that. So I don't believe it. I do believe that they enhance their music somehow in the studio though, because not many can play their studio stuff live
