27 hours a day. I'm going to sit in this corner and die laughing.

there are 24 hours in a day, children. And EVH is entirely overrated with his "soloing genius" and 5-second guitar diharrea.

Plus, no offense, but I'd expect a guitar teacher to type a little more literately.

Everyone has to start somewhere, just like me :D I cant play anything but I still try, who realli cares? When I go on stage at school I have a blast, isn't that what its all about? having fun and enjoying playing guitar, instead of stressing trying to learn something?

I get the feeling no one will agree with me..

I kinda agree, ur meant to have fun..but I like to better myself with guitar, and the more i learn, the better i get so I can play alot of different stuff and write more 'diverse' material ha ha

i love that word! diverse..but yeah your right, as long as u have fun ! ;)

Oh, I know everyone needs to learn lol, but I never stress myself to learn anything. I always learn it, but in my own time. I know loads of my friends who won't go to sleep on a night until they can play a certain riff or something.. I'd never get like that. Cause thats not fun :D

Wow in this thread alone you've really managed to piss me off ........ Well done. :wink:  Why do you care so much how fast you can play?? What's fun about palying 700000 notes a second?? I can play pretty fast yeah but I can never understand people that try to show off how fast they can play. I just don't see the point in practiseing hours upon hours a day trying to improve your speed when you can use those hours to actually enjoy your playing and let the speed come with the pracitse.

:D I'm a clever boy :)


nah im joking I completely get what your saying

But when I want to play for a while, I do warm ups which go 1,2,3,4 on the e string the move to a string...etc and go all the way up the fret board...helps your speed heaps and your not really 'practising' if you get what I mean...just a hint for begginers (not to say your a beginner, but anyone else who might be reading)...;) sorry for being a jackass lol

Well, Steve Vai did once use the word "wanking" to describe one of his more flashy parts to a song. Fast playing can be useful if you just want to impress someone for the first time. But you know you'll try and play quick in front of someone, think you're well cool and then they'll say "let me have a go"... and you know what happens then.

speed is a tool to use with a guitar just as any other technique is. it is just as important to be fast as it is to be melodic, it all depends on what you are going for in that song


and DAMN you guys, my fastest is about 10 hits a second, but I've only been playing far about 1 1/2 years so I think I fast for someone with my experience  :D

It also depends what you're playing. Its not difficult to tap something at a rediculous speed. I think I can do the tapping part of Metallica's "One" at 17 a second or more but I can barely sweep at 2 notes a second.

i didn't mean to say that play fast is useless....i play since i was 10,then now i'm quite fast on the guitar...
but i don't use to count how many notes i'm able to play in one second!
so,sorry if some of you may feel offended.

that i can't do hahah i wouldn't be able to tap if my life depended on it

oh and btw, to count my notes per second i recorded a rehearsal with my band then i listened to it carefully to find the fastest part, i chose, then cut a second's lenght and slowed it down and then counted the notes.

i had the recording and new software and absolutely nothing to do lol.

yeah, what exactly is "17 notes a second" ? is that tremolo picking the same note 17 times, or alternating between two notes 17 times, or tapping like someone said..or what?

^That's solid
Does anyone have a rough idea of what Slash reaches when he plays quick, or what his quickest solo would be? Give in to me and YGNR sound pretty damn fast........ I prefer his slower playing with more emotion, but was just wondering.
Title: Re: All guitarists, i challenge you..
Post by: slashology101 on April 30, 2006, 11:57:17 PM
looking for notes per second of guitarists i found this guy that put up some guitarist called Mr. cucumber that plays 44.6 notes per second... i think it's phisically impossible also i found the song in wich he does this ... it's supposed to be called carpsersens secret fetish ...  and i say "supposed to" because this could very well a hoax.

to give you a notion i think in a guitar world magazine of a few years back... if i remember right, that is... the fastest guitar lick recorded was 32nps by either satch or vai and at 32nps it already sounds like a bunch of gibberish notes (like shit)
