    the only talent i saw there was making michael angelo battio look like a soulful blues guitarist.

    I think archspire has a couple of tracks that are 350-370 BPM and Spencer (drummer) talks about that's about the limit of what's feasible (for him anyways). To be fair he also maintains that for a 60 min set too.

    I think the fastest actual bpm I've ever heard was maybe 360bpm?

    Not this bellend again! Back in the days of Ye Olde Internets (Racer X band message board, actually still somewhat alive even now) someone who went to MI with Paus recounted a tale of his pulling his whole "I'm faster than Shawn Lane" schtick in front of an instructor who knew the late great shredder personally...

    Do you mean like Crooks Division or Noodles Division? Which was the faster Division?

    So too is the misidentification of a genuine JEM 777 SK as a simple RG!

    Suit up, assemble and rescue Mattayus!

    Honestly, that looks more like his principal occupation is editing his own Wikipedia page. Someone who doesn't ought to flag it.

    I think the faster BPMs turn into oscillations in Hertz and then become quantifiable as pitches. FWIW: I'm sure I've seen bebop cats hitting 400 BMP, but they aren't playing many notes per beat. Of course that's quick, but it's more about the feel... Quavers at 400 BPM will have a different feel to semiquavers at 200 BPM.

But stuff like this, where it's literally a sport, should be made illegal. Absolutely fuck this guy and his pointless fucking "talent". Go write a sick solo we'd all actually remember, with your fucking pink RG and... goddam... fucking... raincoat? Why the fuck are you wearing a raincoat?...
    Playing as fast as you can for the sake of playing as fast as you can is FUN, and I have no problems with it.

    It's not, however, music, and I don't want to listen to it unless you find a way to do something interesting with that speed. Which is also fun, but m,,ore importantly pleasant to listen to.

    That said, 1) I moved this to the correct forum, and 2)

    ...there are some pretty clear issues with this claim, one of the biggest being that a frequency of 466 notes per second is slightly faster than the 440 vibrations per second that a middle C vibrates at, so if this claim were true there are some pretty major issues with actually playing pitches at this rate since - someone with a better background in physics can probably confirm this for me - I would suspect that any note with a vibrational frequency below 466 (probably around C#, maybe D, above middle C?) wouldn't actually be able to sound...?

    Correct. The string wouldn't even oscillate once before the next note came. Really, even notes higher than 466 Hz wouldn't vibrate long enough to be perceived as a note. What would actually happen is that you'd hear a 466 Hz tone, since repeated noises (the pick attack) at that rate are perceived by our ears as pitch. You can see this for yourself by setting a click track in your DAW to a ridiculous speed; eventually, it just starts to sound like a single frequency instead of a series of clicks.

    Considering the process of trying that seems like a pretty awful listening experience, I'm perfectly content to take your word.
