Someone edit that to slow it back down. If it doesn`t sound right, then I`m taking his record away. Personally.

@james That depends on what you have it plugged into. Have you heard an electric guitar through a good jazz clean amp? Pretty pleasant if you ask me.

I`m not into this speed fad. Everyone who picks up the guitar is trying to be f*cking micheal angelo batio. Speed is cool when used in the right part of a song, but what really counts is making music. Speed alone isn`t music, it`s sports. Versatility makes a better guitar player.

Skip to 12:20...
the first 3 minutes are introductions of the people and the next 9 minutes are warm-ups.

Um, they are too Humbuckers. Activity is irrelevant, and your 81`s don`t even bear a resemblance to what he`s using!

The notes just piled up against the distortion at the faster speeds, sounded like junk, but still very impressive.

If he`s the fastest, why is the video 14 minutes long?

boy that sounded... awful. i guess dynamics and phrasing aren`t part of "playing it" to this guy. this is where it`s totally fair to say "yeah but my computer could do it faster"

Sure it`s fast, but if it has not tonal quality and barely recognizable as the "song" he`s supposed to be playing, it`s pointless. He might as well just play arpeggios or scales or something.

@jammes, actually that is a "Guitar". It is a "Guitar" and an "Electric Guitar". Just as an "Acoustic Guitar" is a "Guitar". Guitar is an umbrella term.

That`s "Electric Guitar" not "Guitar".
Electric guitar has high-pitch,irritating and psychotic sound, while guitar has smoothing and pleasant sound.

Um...that`s for the GBWR people more. It needs to be documented as being authentic.

What`s with all the comments on the sound? It`s not meant to sound pretty; it`s just to be as fast as possible, not serenade you.

Those aren`t humbuckers, they`re active pickups. probably EMG 81`s

"Randy Rhoads just crapped in his coffin."

Randy Rhoads wasn`t the fastest shredder ever. He was just unbelieveably talented for his time.

Yeah - I really wish he would`ve switched to the lower pickup for this - middle and upper humbuckers really sound like sh*t when it comes to (coherent) metal solos.

Thank f*ck for the "Hide Annotations" button... Jesus, buddy!

p.s. Cut some of the distortion, man. Jesus, buddy!

p.p.s. The price of cocaine on the streets of Colorado must have skyrocketed during that week, since buddy apparently bought the entire f*cking stash for the whole goddam state to play like that. Jesus, buddy!

Unlike ice cream, which one can never get enough of, too much speed in music becomes, well, just a mess. Not to take anything away from his skill, hey, more power to him, but, all of the music was gone from that playing. Still, many props to the man.

Less talk, more rock. The first 2:30 of the video or so didn`t need to be there. And the distortion made it sound like poo.

The guys who do the slo-mo vids were going to film, but they couldn`t get the insurance (too high a risk of ripping a hole in space-time).

it`d be better if there wasn`t ridiculous distortion on the guitar hiding what he`s actually playing, i mean really its not impressive as it could be cause the distortion just hides the notes.

I wonder how they validate that he actually played the song at the highest speeds. After about 350, it was hard to tell what the song was anymore.

It stops even looking real once he gets to 400-500. Note I`m not saying it isn`t, it just starts looking like stop motion he`s going so fast...
