This video is titled "Fastest guitarist in the world: 27 notes per second on guitar (Sergiy Putyatov) Guinness Record 2012," and it was posted to YouTube earlier this year. Here's the info that was posted with the video:
"Sergiy Putyatov is one of the fastest guitarists in the world. His official Guinness Record is 27 notes per second."
So that's all we know about this clip (except that it looks like it was shot in Liverpool, England, and that Putyatov bears a passing resemblance to Perfect Strangers-era Ritchie Blackmore), but we think you might appreciate this guy's blinding speed.
