Fastest Guitar Player In The World?

Speed is something that most novice guitar players strive for as they think that pure dexterity makes them a better player. That's not exactly true (listen to Joe Walsh or David Gilmore are great examples), since the faster you play, usually the less passion and soul you play with.

That being said, here's an interesting video by guitarist Tiago Della Vega playing the classic song “Flight Of The Bumble Bee” by Nikolay Rimsky Korsakov. Tiago plays at tempos that gradually ramp up to 320 bpm, which is totally outrageous.

I still prefer Joe Walsh, but this is a great performance.

From a purely physical perspective...just incredible. (Not to mention he's playing a 7-string.) But I'm reminded of body-builders...a physical achievement that takes years of refinement, but in the end it forgoes natural soul and heart in favor of pure performance. I guess someone's gotta do it....

Awesome and at 170bmp - that’s faster than techno music! He makes it look so easy as well
