Maybe... but he didn't acquire that crazy speed just as a by-product of playing regular music.  He must have really wanted to be able to do that, and spent many, many hours practising it.   It's a mentality I find pretty hard to understand.   :?

Yeah, but he's not playing it as music, he's playing it as a competitive sport.  :P

Noted!  :wink:  By the time he gets to 320bpm, he sounds like a drill with a defective motor.

the 320 bpm version is really impressive. it sounds really bad - and has no musical value - but more than everything i'm awed by the fluid and continuous movement of the left hand. i wonder how the hell he pushes those frets...

anyway i agree with philly... these machinegun shredders train to be deadly fast, not to play music. it comes from a totally different mentality. after all if you need a 320 bpm lick in a song you can do it by midi and it will sound exactly the same!
