Hey, all. Here's a ridiculous video of guitarist John Taylor of Colorado playing Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee" at 600 BPM.
According to RecordSetter.com, it's a new world record.
He starts off at 170 BPM and works his way up to 600 BPM.
"Flight of the Bumblebee" is an orchestral interlude from Rimsky-Korsakov's opera "The Tale of Tsar Saltan," which he wrote in 1899 through 1900. The piece closes Act III, Tableau 1, of course! Thank you, Wikipedia!
