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.

As a guitarists I dont think he is that good. He is good and has great technique but not worth the hype. There is much more to being good at guitar than speed.

Wow...I normally prefer men with slooow hands (hoho) but watching this guy`s chord action was really amazing. I swear it looked like it was in fast forward - really fast.

Way to judge his music (not technical) skills by not listening to his music, only to his record break :3

flight of the cracked out bumblebee.

So he can move his right hand really fast, big @#$%in deal. Play something more technical and I might be impressed.

i think this is kinda like the body building of guitar. obsession takes over so much it just seems kinda sad. he`s talented, but he still doesn`t make music

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.

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.

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?

But seriously, I bet he`d get some painful hand cramps from doing that for too long.

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!!

Yeah, I gotta go with patchouly here.
For me, playing that fast isn`t an issue.
I like fast music, but there`s a point where it doesn`t really matter anymore.

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!

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.
