    Sure, it`s impressive that he can move his fingers that fast... but it`s not that good musically.

    I`ll take Buddy Guy or Warren Haynes playing slow, thoughtful guitar riffs, with actual emotion, over some guy running scales really, really fast with lots of distortion.

    It`s not about quality, it`s about quantity (in this case ;) ). He didn`t get the record for most soulful player, he got it for fastest.

    Is he my favourite guitar player? Not even close. Do I respect the talent involved in being able to play that fast? Absolutely!

    Alice_x I have to agree.
    The holder of the title of worlds fastest drummer, Mike Mallais, is one of my oldest and dearest friends, and he is very talented. It`s lucky to have someone with that kind of talent in your life, it is very inspiring.

    Those who don`t understand the speed aspect of it can`t comprehend that in order for them to gain the speed, the talent for the instrument has to be there in the first place. This man is a wonderful guitarist... and I would love to see he and Mike together Jamming, it would be mind boggling!!

    Everyone stop bring up Guitar Hero.
    Sure it`s a good game, but Guitar Hero has nothing on the real guitar.

    He was playing Flight of the Bumblebee with mostly 16th notes. There are four 16th notes in a beat. So he could literally hit 1,280 notes per minute.

    I wonder if he can go any faster?

    To quote patchouly:
    "Is he my favourite guitar player? Not even close. Do I respect the talent involved in being able to play that fast? Absolutely!"

    At 320 bpm it sounded a bit like a car, I thought.
    I`ll go back to struggling with bar chords now.

    That was absolutely remarkable, especially the dedication it took to even get that far. I love playing the guitar myself, but I couldn`t possibly find myself doing something constructive with it for 16 hours. Am I even awake for 16 hours a day? Yikes.

    he isnt good. just fast. true, he hits hit notes, but seems to need to palm mute to rest him hand.. maybe I`m wrong, but if thats the case, he couldn`t play something unpalmmuted at that speed . It`s odd though. I was expecting a neoclassical sweep video, and got this.

    Fail in my eyes. I`d still go for batio over this guy for skills at speed. Or even better, Satriani just for being teh sex and uber1337 guitar player that he is.
