World’s Fastest Guitar Player John Taylor Shreds the Competition [VIDEO]
John Taylor secured his rightful spot in metal heaven when he recently broke the record for world’s fastest guitar playing. He clocked in at at 600 BPM (Beats Per Minute), almost twice the speed of the original record holder, Tiago Della Vega.
In a video documenting the record, Taylor plays Rimsky Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumblebee”, the same song played by Della Vega, getting progressively faster until he breaks the record and his hands move so fast it looks like the clip has been sped up.
Could Taylor be the next big natural energy resource? He could probably power a small town with the speed of his guitar playing.
Watch Taylor’s record-breaking moment and Vega’s original best time below:
