Want to be the world’s fastest guitar player?
There was a time that Eric “Slowhand” Clapton ruled the rock and roll guitar world. Clapton is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist, and separately as a member of The Yardbirds and Cream. Clapton has been referred to as one of the most important and influential guitarists of all time. Clapton ranked second in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and fourth in Gibson’s Top 50 Guitarists of All Time.
We are so fortunate these days to have instant access to the breadth and depth of music and performers from all over the world and from every genre. There are so many great musicians and titles to go along with the vast scope of talent. Being the fastest guitar player in the world is something you may want to aspire to.
Wired magazine just published an article stating that the fastest guitar player in the world today is 28-year-old John Taylor of Westminster, Colorado. This according to the Guinness book of world records for his 600 beets per minute playing “The Flight of the Bumble Bee,” which seems to be one of the preferred pieces for fast play.
Taylor began playing the guitar at age 13, so it only takes 15 years or less (or more) of practice to become the world’s fastest guitar player. Taylor continues to practice in hopes of hitting 800 bpm.
