World record guitar speed 2008

A YouTube video of Tiago Della Vega setting the world record guitar speed (2008)

Just let it finish loading and skip straight to 7:39 for the fastest run.

Is there any point to playing this fast? Musically, not much. Being able to play faster than you need to, however, means you’re not struggling when playing as fast as you do need to. That means you can devote energy to how you play the notes, not just getting them played in time.

So, while I’m not a huge fan of shredding for the sake of shredding, I don’t think it is completely pointless.
