you guys would know more than me, cuz ive only been playing for a few months but this guy seems legitimate.

Anyone think they can go faster?

his fingers seem to float around the fretboard...

and how long do you think it would take to develop that kind of speed?

He's pretty fast. Have you checked out Hisham's lessons though? Hisham is superfast and has great structure with his playing. We should see if we can get him to do a lesson going as fast as he can. I bet he would blow that dude out of the water? I'll keep an eye out. Thanks for the post.

as far as impressing me, he is right up there with the guy having the world record for sliding on snow down a hill the greatest distance, on his bare ass.

you don't need pavel. just download one of these guys, convert it to mp3, and then run it though slowdowner. one is much less impressed after that.

i tried to listen, but he kept jabbering. after about 30 seconds I figured "that's all you get, shut your yapper, geez", and clicked him off. I highly doubt on my death bed i will say "gee, I wish I has listened to that fast speed picker when I had the chance".

I define it as the guy who is fastest and also musical. There would be argument, but Batio would be a contender. I am not sure if Gilbert is as fast. But Gilbert can play at 140bpm, and still he is playing faster than these guys who think they are playing 58 notes a second. Fast crap don't count.

I am the fastest guitarist in the world.

That is to say, I can play the opening riff of Enter Sandman while running down the street at thirty miles an hour

which personally I think is more impressive than the guy in the video

Well, technically, you don't even need to be playing anything right? I'm a guitarist and one time I drove my car like 103 miles per hour. CHAMPION!! laugh.gif

This is ridiculous lol.

This was my opinion aswell.Like in this video the dude was doing very fast swep motions along with throwing in some tapps but it wasent really musical.Sounded more like an atarii game on Crack.No doubt the guitarist is good but i think this is a area were a guitarist looses skill due to speed obsession tongue.gif .Please dont get me wrong i love fast really fast sweeping solo's but man its got to have something in it that just catch's you smile.gif .Some of you will know what i mean.Also i have to go check out this dude you all listed on here as the fastest biggrin.gif

or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

His sweeps are really crazy, but his AP sucks. He doesn't hit one note while AP so he's not a real shredder like Rusty or Fareri.

And even these sweeps aren't well accurate imho,would be nice to slow it down if possible,
probably 3 of 10 notes are played,rest of it is raking. wink.gif

Possibly true. I was listening it at really low volume - was afraid to wake up my neighbours biggrin.gif

I watched it and I think it's been sped up. Watch his facial chewing movements at the end.
Anyway - music is not a race, it's about feelings and that vid only gives me one feeling, ewww tongue.gif
