World’s Fastest Guitar Player Nails ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ at 600 BPM [Watch]

How would you like to take some guitar lessons from this guy!? John Taylor is a guitarist from Colorado and is aptly nicknamed ‘Dr. Hot Licks.’ If you’re looking to get your fill of shredding, look no further than his world record-setting feat.

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s orchestral piece ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ is used as the staple for setting the world record for fastest guitar playing. It allows guitarists to combine speed with proficiency, rather than just speed-picking nonsense guitar noises. Here, Dr. Hot Licks warms up at continuously faster tempos until he achieves the unthinkable 600 BPM mark. Oh, and he makes it looks pretty easy!
