Music As a Means to Superior Technique, Revisited

Ok, I was smugly condescending about the 58 notes per second guy, but this is pretty awesome. It's Tiego Della Vega setting the Guinness World Record for Extremely Fast Guitar Playing. The fun starts at around 3:40 in the video: he plays "Flight of the Bumblebee" at 170 beats per minute. Then he plays it again, a little faster, and then again, faster still, and eventually he's screaming along at an unearthly 320 bpm.

Rowlf the Dog did a similar gag in the first season of The Muppet Show.
