    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.

    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.

    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.

    @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.
