There were plenty of mistakes on the 170bpm let alone the "faster" attempts.

My friend talked to Michael Angelo about this and he said they just disqualified those guys because when they slowed it down they found out they were training themselves to hit certain spots but in between the picking was total BS.

Re: new world record: Flight of bumblebee -> 999 BPM


Back in time long before YouTube.......

You didn't get to see much shredding unless you went to a club or such. Each person who could shred thought they were one of only a few who could do it well. They thought they were one of the special few.

Jump forward to today....

YouTube has shown us that a lot of folks can shred and do it pretty good. As such shredding isn't so impressive anymore. With so many decent shredders out there real playing is more important.

I find Jeff Becks playing much more meaningful than Vais constant fast playing and use of the sustainor is as much as a crutch now for him as the wammy bar is. I do view SV as a master of the guitar but Beck has something that SV does not. Understanding of sound.

This is so true, 20 years ago in the UK, you only could measure yourself against the guys in your local area or the ones that the records companies had decided to back and that ended up on the cover of "Guitarist". Once you could play He Man Woman Hater or For the Love of God (or even Green Tinted 60's Mind (for the ladies of course)) along with the CD you had nothing left to prove.

When Youtube became popular, folks began to realise that was Shredding 101 and the next class was just about to start!

For me "real playing" is on a graph where melody intersects with technique. Too much technique and it starts to sound like noise, too little and it just doesn't hold my interest.

Re: new world record: Flight of bumblebee -> 999 BPM


Mistakes or not, that's ridiculously fast playing and for that I give the guy a lot of credit. It would be hard to listen to for any period of time and it's not unlike those fastest drummer contests. My drummer could play guitar fast like that and musically that's why he's a drummer these days. His ability for speed is more appreciated on drums where he splits between keeping the beat and then doing tricks. Unfortunately with lead guitar, it's too easy to let band do song and fall into just tricks and lose the song.

People who attain that type of speed on guitar sometimes get stuck in that mode, like crossing your eyes too much but then having it stick, and that particular skill rubs against the song the wrong way. It's just excruciating to experience in person and it's actually easier to listen to a guitarist with no technique who is tone deaf.

As good as guitar god Shawn Lane was I would have liked to have seen many passages done slower and with more feeling. Technically though, he was as perfect at hitting all the notes accurately and it goes to show music is also about taste as well as the execution.

I tell myself that playing slowly with more feeling is better than playing fast . . . to justify not practicing more.
