haha at first I thought you were going to post my nps.

I think it would be a good idea to separate all the nps scores into categories based on the ones that are picked and the ones that are tapped/legato.

You're fast enough to make that list. I want proof.
Unfortunately i've never had the pleasure of hearing any of your recordings.

haha, no I'm not fast enough. I've never really been able to pick faster than 16ths at 210bpm.

I don't really see what the big deal with anchoring is... 2 of the fastest players in the world (Fareri and Batio) both anchor so it can't impede your playing that much...

I'd say it'd be more an issue with tension and such,

also, batio picks oscilliation which is least affected by it.

From what fp's told me...

It just so happens that the licks that those players play arn't difficult, they are just fast.

Well I've taken the liberty to neaten up the list for you guys, I've put it in order and I've labelled all of them (apart from Gilbert and Lynch - I'm not sure on those two) as to what technique was used for it.

You may even notice I've looked up a couple of things for myself and updated them. Fareri is infact 33nps, not 32. Ron Thal is infact 28nps. Impillitteri I made out to be 17.8nps - on the same song, the original number of 20.1 was taken because he does one sextuplet grouping in the song, fair enough, if he'd kept that up he'd have played 20.1, but he only does it for one beat. Instead he plays 16 notes over 3 beats, and at there being just over 3 beats a second I made it out to be 17.8nps. If any of these calculations are incorrect please set me straight! Here you go:

Francesco Fareri ? 33nps ? Suspension (6 string sweeping)

Ron Thal ? 28nps ? Hands (legato)

Rusty Cooley ? 24.7nps ? Under The Influence (legato and sweeping)

Michael Angelo Batio - 23.3 nps ? No Boundaries (sweeping)

Jeff Hanneman ? 23.2 ? Angel of Death (legato)

Steve Vai - 21.6 - The Riddle (legato)

Paul Guilbert ? 20.5nps - Snakebite

George Lynch ? 19.8 - Wicked Sensations

Frank Gambale - 19.3nps - 6.8 Shaker (alternate picked)

Yngwie - 18.6 ? Blitzkrieg (alternate picked)

Shawn Lane ? 18nps (at least ? possibly up to 27) ? Trademark lick (alternate picked)

Chris Impellitteri ? 17.8 ? Race Into the Light (alternate picked)

Tony Macalpine ? 15nps ? Hundreds of Thousands (alternate picked)

John Petrucci ? 14nps ? Various songs (alternate picked)

Al DiMeola - 14nps ? Mediterranean Sundance (alternate picked)




And now, for the odd ones ?

Marcus Paus ? is NOT 44.6nps ?Miscalculation: It?s damn fast but it?s not 44.

Allan Holdsworth - 37nps ? A self proclaimed ?moment of genius? also very hard to hear ? a one off.

Joe Satriani ? 32nps ? Flying in a Blue Dream (live) ? this seems to be common knowledge but I don?t know of a single person who?s ever seen/heard proof. Either way it?s a live one off, he?s never hit anything near that since.


Hope that helps

Whats the song? And if you've got a tab you'll no doubt be able to find a faster section than 19.3 if its an average.
