Yes, to start with, hearing this without distortion would be a lot more telling, because right now it just sounds like shit.

And the point of putting a clock in the picture "to prove its not fake" is laughable. Any seventh grader with Movie Maker can fake a clock in the video.

Impressive if you like speed, largely for speed's sake. I'll take one bend from Clapton's "Groaning the Blues" over that any day.

This is undeniably spectacular. I cannot do it. I would really like to hear it without distortion.

Yeah this has been beaten already.

Technically, it hasn't because the guy in your video was denied by Guinness because it didn't meet the criteria. So this guy's record stands.

cfguitar

Well no technically it has. Just because Guinness hasn't put their stamp of approval on it doesn't negate the fact that people have played this song faster and beaten his record. All Guinness really is a little award that says"Hey look what I can do!!"

Obviously it starts off musical but turns into a blur. But man you should be able to play anything u ever wanted to that was humbling in my opinion considering my personal skill level

Hey, Beavis... If I could move my hand that fast, I'd never leave the house. Huh huh.

See! Our Mothers were right when they told us, "Stop that son, it will make you go blind!" I guess that's why he wears glasses. What a wrist this guy has. It looks/sounds like it all paid off for him. Moms, don't ya just love 'em?

This sounds like muddy crap. He's definitely not hitting all the notes. I love the retard growling YEAH in the background too. Idiots.

Hey Dipshit, keep your negative comments to yourself. Why would you call someone you don't even know a retard, and the others idiots? Probably because you are a retard and idiot yourself. And oh yes idiot, Guinness meticulously (hope that's not too big of a word for you) broke this video down and said he definitely hit all the notes. They wouldn't have given him the record if he had not. Try to recognize this man's achievement instead of spewing negative crap, but I guess you suffer from what 90% of this country suffers from, chronic stupidity.

check out Luca Poma's Flight of the Bublebee on You Tube. He's maybe faster, if not he's cleaner!

Can't help but think he doesnt get out much, with all the practice it must have taken!

If the clock wasn't in the frame, I never would have believed that was real time. In-fucking-credible. I wonder how many millions of times he's played that to get his speed to that level.
