Science of Speed! Coming Soon in Masters in Mechanics

Guinness gave me the record for fastest guitar player for playing Flight of the Bumblebee at 600 BPM, and then 620 BPM.

After learning more about my playing, I decided to take a look at the original footage sent to Guinness. I did not pick every note in my performance. Therefore, I did not break a world record.

I truly believe that any guitar speed record needs to have every single note being picked. Because I did not do what I said needs to be done, I want to tell everyone the truth.

The trailer mentioned in this video where I'm picking 21 notes per second is this:

Alicyn Yaffee: Someone Else the new album available online - classy jazz pop

Someone Else by Alicyn Yaffee

Album Notes
The music on this album comes from observations on life and events in the heart, and is expressed through the idioms of Jazz, Punk, Classical, and Soul.

Produced by Benny Rietveld, the album features performances by Cindy Blackman Santana, Ronnie Foster, Pepe Jimenez, Jeff Cressman, Ben Goldberg, Benny Rietveld and Alicyn herself playing all guitars.

"Alicyn is a rare bird among the breed of young guitar players. Hers is a soulful style, emphasizing tone and feel over flashy technique, while at the same time possessing considerable harmonic knowledge and concept that is unique, mixed with a good deal prowess on the fretboard. And then there's her singing - a cool, clear emotive soprano style that reaches into the very core of you, easily getting past your defenses. She's also an inventive and intelligent songwriter, having written all the music and lyrics on the album. She is definitely a multifaceted artist, and it will be exciting to see where she goes next!" - Benny Rietveld (bass player and Musical Director for Carlos Santana)
