Check out Sinisa's amazing new lesson, "Chorus Lead", and then post a reply to today's topic.

How fast can you play 16th notes on one string (one fret only)? (tremolo picking in other other words)

Reason for edit: added tremolo

Yes - hand and pick!

(If you you can reach impressive guitar speeds with any other part of your body - I'd love to hear about it as well though! laugh.gif )

If I could speed pick with some other part of my body I would probably have a whole line of women pounding down my door right now biggrin.gif laugh.gif

this I am fast at
240 bpm ,4 notes per click
on the b string starting with the d note to c to b to c and just repeat like a bat out of hell
hear is my problem, if I need to switch strings with a different pattern, this I suck at and I slow down to 130 to 150 on a good day

It's too bad he doesn't actually play anything. Picking at that speed is one, playing at that speed is something else.smile.gif Of course, as has been said often, speed for it's own sake is pointless. As far as guys actually playing crazy fast, the paul gilbert solo from the Racer X live album still stands out.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5F48VXmPm_Y

Here is a vid of him all the way back in 1987 doing bits from the same solo (actually has vid)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-_Wm8T1iMc...feature=related

Here is plays a live solo with no distortion.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-_Wm8T1iMc...feature=related


That guy doing the bumble bee thing for the Guiness book was pretty impressive but he was playing the same thing every time.

My very first youtube lesson ever was mostly about speed. It was horrible quality and a bad recording but it's still my highest viewed video to date. Go figure?

I agree with Todd. If you are playing faster then you can think, are you really playing at all. Still pretty amazing stuff though...

Big fan of Paul, and what I heard there was sickening. Mind-blowing technique. Cheers for the inspiration, Todd.

Killer technique Sinisa - very few people have that legato flow (which Poland does so well). I think a lot of people would want to see a more shreddy lesson from you as well smile.gif
