who is the fastest guitarist you've ever heard? i'm just talking about speed so they're skill doesn't really matter that much as long as they're decent, so basically don't say that (this is just an example) john petrucci is better than yngwie malmsteen because he writes better songs, i don't care about that, i just want to know who is faster, i would either say Michael Angelo Batio, Herman Li, or Sam Totman

The morning will come
In the press of every kiss
With your head upon my chest

Where I will annoy you
With every waking breath
Until you, decide to wake up
Francesco Ferari, he is the fastest in the world he can play 32 notes per second
i've heard a few: malmsteen, Chris Impellitteri, and some other guy whose name i don't know but he played Flight of the BumbleBee on electric guitar which is 500 bpm
i heard paul mccartney did the marathon

No really cman was right but you shoulda checked the shred forums fastest guitarist thread.
EDIT: John Petrucci was the one who played Flight of the bumblebee on guitar, and bpm doesnt have that much to do with with speed.
Whoever said Zakk Wylde was the fastest youve ever heard, WTF!?

Check the shred forum, there's a big thread on the fastest guitarists.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
