Horrible tone.


He uses MAD compression and he holds his pick upside down to 'brush' the notes more than pick them... Whatever it takes I guess. This has to be the 3rd or 4th time I've seen this on UG today.

Most epic Flight of the Bumblebee:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIEdzaAcW-c

Is that a music video or a deleted scene from one of the Bourne movies?

So. Much. Shaky. Cam.

I feel bad for anyone that lives with him and had to hear him practicing that at 500 BPM for hours.

Have to call bullshit on this. Firstly his hands arn't moving naturally so it looks very fake, secondly if he is indeed playing 16th notes at 600bpm then he is playing 40 notes every second which cannot be humanly possible.

The fastest guys like Vai and Petrucci don't go much further than 20 notes per second and when they do it isn't for very long.

He fapped for years nonstop to get that picking speed

Dude, it's real. There are world record people making sure it actually happened. They wouldn't have sped up his video, they were actually there witnessing it live.

The fastest famous guys, yes. You don't know that they're the fastest players because nobody gets famous off of just speed. They manage to integrate speed musically, whereas it's pretty hard to do anything musical sounding with sixteenths at 600bpm, as this video proves. Check out his original music and you'll understand, it's pretty bad.

Still not sure if I believe it, he is supposedly playing to within 10% of the fire rate of a minigun...


It costs 400,00 dollars to play that song... for twelve seconds...

it was just show of skill (tho im not sure if it just "parkinsons" hand and sliding over frets, because i cant make out notes at that speed or accurate playing). If he is capable to play at 40nps, im fairly sure he could do something musical at 1/2 of that speed


Im just refuting the statement that its physically impossible

I kinda agree with the whole 40 notes a second being slightly hard to believe, but then again, it's in the Guinness book of records, which is official, so I'm gunna have to go with that.

It was actually first recognized by this other site, RecordSetter.com. Guinness may have poached him from them!

This is NOT real -- his arms are clearly CGI'd or something. THIS FEAT IS NOT POSSIBLE...

I've seen this same video about 8 times...

And off topic, I agree with 90% of your list, Jesiff.

This sig is colored just to annoy the UG classic users.

Trying to think of witty things to put in my sig. Message if you have ideas.
