The Shred King ...

His picking hand wrist is hardly moving. It's almost like thumb picking at high speeds.

That's fake. The clock is isolated using video software and the guitarist is speed up. Fastest heard version not faked is Dr.Gomez with fingerstyle four finger technique. There are probably faster version but nothing over 360 Bpm. If a clock was sticked to guitar's headstock and the guitarist would say a few words while playing then we could be almost sure.

Havent'check but eyes blink and respiration could be good pointers of authenticity.

Is it me, or are these "fastest guitarist in the world" videos getting old??

I did catch myself looking to the right of the screen to see if the paid advertisement for playing like the world's most awesome solo only using four notes was shown, but not. I love such irony.....

Thats insanely fast.
I found myself laughing at alot of this. He's so fast that once he gets it up to 350bpm his hands become blurry to the camera.
While it's quite impressive watching someone play that fast, and I appricate how much pratice and effort must have gone into being able to play that fast, musically it don't do much for me.
It might be intresting to see or hear if this guy can play something different, slower, with a melody....
