I actually had a dream one time that I was able to pick like that. The dream was cool, this was a bit silly.
I did however like the music playing at the end.

The audio on that is fake, created later (or earlier) then combined with the video. Here's how the 320bpm attempt actually sounded: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDWfc_JpOrM

The idea that people even do fakes amazes me. Why do it. Bad showmanship if ya ask me.

the entire thing is chromatic you could do the same thing with just one finger moving it up and down the neck.

guitars can also be used to make 'music'

"Flight of the Bumblebee" is a famous orchestral interlude written by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov for his opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, composed in 1899–1900. The piece closes Act III, Tableau 1, right after the magic Swan-Bird gives Prince Gvidon Saltanovich (the Tsar's son) instructions on how to change into an insect so that he can fly away to visit his father (who does not know that he is alive). Although in the opera the Swan-Bird sings during the first part of the "Flight", her vocal line is melodically uninvolved and easily omitted; this feature, combined with the fact that the number decisively closes the scene, made easy extraction as an orchestral concert piece possible.

Some people always have to bitch and moan in some way don't they?

Fucking hell man. Tone, Musiciality, expression. None of them have a place in this video. Go Elsewhere.

Edit: There was a big caps lock rant here, but I figure whats the point? People will always carry on being idiots no matter what I say.

He's not bashing the piece when he says "Guitars can also be used to make music", but rather the player...
