You can barely see his hand moving freakin hell!!!

I don't want to hear one person saying it lacks emotion because that is a 40 second thing that im sure was not designed to be "Emotional" as such, but merely to show the world that he is really really really really good. which you are entitled to do if you can play that fast.

Exactly. Who gives a crap what you play if you play like that!!?!?

There's a lot of shredders on videos that play covers who are really good. Toni Lloret has a lot of them on Google Video, and he's really good.

Hey if you could sweep out some arpeggios to that chord progression, it'd probably sound pretty kick ass.

wow...that's...um...fast...um...yeah...
the purpose of it wasn't to be emotional, but to show off (as arrogant as it seems). if he wanted to be emotional, he probably wouldn't have wrote this with his video:
"Tiago Della Vega is the fastest guitar player in the world.
He can make 38 notes in 1 second"

Yea that invalid bull**** argument has been overused and I think every shredder out there who knows half his or her **** has beating the stuffing out of it.

Anyways yea...that was amazing.

I loved his left hand technique, damn you could barley see the fingers moving! aweosme ^_^.

Terrible.

I really wish these really fast players would use their skill to actually make music, instead of showing off "OMFG look how fast I can play! LOOK! SEE? WORSHIP ME!!"

And what's with the "38 BPS". What is "B"? Beats? Bytes? Don't they mean "Notes" per Second?
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

I hate Tiago Della Vega. He's simply full of bullsh*t

He has horrible tone despite using a JEM.

He is very sloppy, and doesnt seem to know what or how he is playing. For some reason he thinks the fastest way to tremolo pick is DDUUDDUU. He does this at slow speeds, but as soon as he speeds up, he alternates. At his 'hyperspeed' his picking is not at all smooth or consistent.

His tremolo picking is actually about 18-20nps- nowhere near 38nps. Before people go 'OMG 18-20nps thats pathetic ur lying!!11' check out Theodore Ziras playing at that speed on the alternate picking lessons on his site. That is faster than you and unlike with Della Vega, it is accurate, in time to a metronome and you can actually hear NOTES even at such speed. A lot of people have completely lost all perspective on the whole speed thing, none more so than Della Vega.

He also made up a lie about there being a G4 with him, Francesco Fareri, Rusty Cooley and Chris Impelliteri in South America.

In summarising Della Vega, there is nothing more appropriate than the comment at the bottom of his first Chops From Hell column:

'"chops from hell" indeed'.

As much as i HATE bashing a guitar player about the emotion and melody crap, that sounded pretty damn bad, just wankery, not even like Kerry King chromatic sort of stuff, where it actually fits in and works, its just really bad wankery which sounds like a guitar thrown at helicopter rotors or something. Is that basically what the Paus recording sounded like?

That is amazingly fast, but it sounds terrible and playing a JEM should at least give him a nice tone but it sounds crap...not that I could do any better but he does sound terrible

OMFG Theodore Ziras I just watched his stuff...he is insane sooo good and fast...and his finger lift on his fretting hand...OMG....this guy isn't human..either that or he sold his soul to satan for them chops...thats just not right

and what guitar is he playing?

Well, its certainly not 38bps!

Nor 38nps...

Besides, i was going to post the whole thing a while back, if you watch him speed up its almost certainly a fake. Thats the most authentic looking 40 seconds of his playing i've seen, but theres some stuff that looks as fake as http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3696772496625670&q=shredding - which is an obvious spoof of the original, almost definately fake video. Even watching fareri going at a real 30+ nps, it looks real - if sped up. This guy actually looks as if he's faking it sometimes.

And 38nps? My ****ing arse. This vid seems real enough, but the figure is about twice the truth. You can hear the individual pickstrokes. Using a GP4 file, and writing a simple updown scale type "weeeeooooweeeooooo" noise, the pickstrokes sound pretty similar at around 23nps. He's relying on the fact that things get hard to distinguish with that kind of tone at the 20+ range.

^ That video cracks me up every time I watch it. Full respect to the guy- he really does imitate Tiago's tone well. I'm not sure, but I think this video might even surpass Della Vega's in terms of musical value

That sounded like total ****. Before I judge his skill I'd like to hear an actual piece he wrote instead of pointless wankery. I mean, it's fast, but I'd so much rather listen to Surfing with the Alien or something where there's actually melody and dynamics.

Exactly. Another forum had a few clips that were slowed down of him playing fast, then playing his "38nps fast". The pickstrokes were the same, he just increases the number of notes he frets. And even that wasn't 38nps

That first vid with Della looks like it was speeded up. Watch his head. It's bobbing all over the place.

That second video is hilarious. It sounds pretty much like real shred tone too.

and 38 bps is so slow, it's almost unheard of. I have never seen a song go below 40 bps.
what happened to the proposed Kirk Hammett flamenco album?


His acoustic didn't sound good with wah pedal, I suppose.

As much as I'd like to say how bad that was, fake or not, I can't since I am not able to do any better. In fact, if I were to ever attempt something like that, I'd probably spontaniously combust from frustration.
