    I just found a guy who managed to play at 720bpm after I found another that he did at 1500, I returned to find another who did 2000 after 4000 and finally found a guy who achieved a speed of what seems be 26000bpm, 466 notes per second, I just want to ask one thing, at what speed is really touching? Is it true that it hits 26,000 bpm? or maybe less or even more?

    Theres a certain bpm where your return on investment is negligible. regardless of how close he is, it sounds like utter garbage imho

    I’d want to hear that slowed down to see if there’s actually notes

    David Gilmore can eat it! Lol

    I just googled him up
    He quit guitar & wound up being like the famous orchestral composer in Norway

    Wow, he shredded himself right off the instrument

    Wouldn't the note you're playing just become nothing if you played it at the exact speed it was vibrating at? At a certain point you're not playing notes, just a single tone again, right? If I play A440 at 440 beats per second then wouldn't it equal silence? So the guy that did 466 beats per second could test this out I guess.

    Most likely much less than 446 notes per second; about 20 times less, give or take. :lol: To give some perspective, your perception of a pitch "starts" at around 20Hz, ergo 20 repetitions per second. You don't necessarily hear a pitch that low, but your ear starts to get to work at that point.



    What does alternate picking recorded on a high speed camera at around if not over 20 notes per second sounds like? Like this. Even John Taylor gladly admits that after he verified it himself, his Guinness Book record doesn't have him actually picking all the notes. He still is a very well seasoned and very knowledgeable guitarist and musician, you should check his YouTube channel. That tone though...



    Alternatively if you want to hear what that sounds like and have a reasonable audio device, use this online generator with a sawtooth wave, and hear it for yourself.

    Most speed videos or attempts have shit tone because the strings are basically just laid on the fingerboard with as little tension as possible.

    If you're into really weird videos and you're not familiar with GothicKingCobra I would HIGHLY recommend checking him out. He live streams too if you're into that.
