How fast can yoy play?
 
How many notes in a second?
What things effect.
Strings?
Guitar?
Teknique?

:flame:
:beer:

10nps

technique would be the main factor, but of course also if you are using the guitar you're used to, it will be much easier to reach high speeds.

PantericA 2002-11-04 12:56

^^^^^^^^^
bullshit. 10 per/sec. my ass!

Def 2002-11-04 13:47

I don't know how fast I am, but its probably pretty fast, I think hehe.

anyways, 10 notes per second is pretty fast.

CtHuLhU DaWn 2002-11-04 17:47

12Nps if i try, i can do more on a say


-1-2-3-4-5
Tap

atifman 2002-11-04 22:36

yeah string tension, action, neck size, and technique will affect your speed

i can do 14 nps

how did you guys measure this? i did this a long time ago, what i did was record myself tremelo picking for like a few seconds, cut the wave down to a second, and then counting the notes.

and besides, who cares?

Laatta 2002-11-05 00:26

The kounting is easy if yoy have a metronome or a drum machine.
When the metronome beats 2 times per secons and you play 16st notes(4per metronome beat) thats 8nps

Ican play 8-12nps its
I thinkn the main thing is the difficulty of the riff :smash:

Pablo 2002-11-05 09:02

is that important???

CtHuLhU DaWn 2002-11-05 11:50

Actually, i put thgis to the test a few mins ago, And i can say i managed 15 Just a second ago

If you mean like

G|---------------------1-2-3
D|---------------123
A|-------1-2-3
E|1-2-3


And hit every note, then yes thats no problem, i can reel 15 easily, Maybe 18
But if you mean like



D|----66666666666666666666666666666666666666



Then i can pull 12

If I don't warmup before I try it I can get about 14-16 in a tremelo.. But I can't hold it for very long my hand hurts like hell after a few seconds.. But if I warm up I can hold 12 for quite a long time and that seems to be about the fastest I can go warmed up.. And that's only on one string. I can't cross string for shit or sweep..

Destroyer666 2002-11-05 22:07

I use the 3 note per string version of the G major iolian to test my speed, and I can comfortably reach 12 notes per second using legato technique (can reach higher but technique gets ropey) and 8 notes per second picking through the scale (although i can reach 10, i can't sustain it very long). If anyone is interested, I have been playing about a year, to give a figure of how long it has taken me to reach this speed. However, i only started using a metronome a couple of weeks ago and it has sped me up from 4 notes per second to 8 in only that amount of time, so really a metronome is more than highly recommended!

Now if only i was good enough to incorporate that speed into a decent solo!

damonta 2002-11-06 08:15

I can get 19-20 going backwards, but about 16-17 going up.:flame:

alexguitargodbu 2002-11-06 19:48

20 n per sec, now you can say: my ass.

PantericA 2002-11-06 22:36

how can you measure this accurately? because i can play pretty fast but i didn't think it was like 12 notes or 15 notes, ........or 20 notes! (<- my ass 20 notes). :cool:

damonta 2002-11-06 23:21

Set the metrinone to 120. 2 beats =1 second.Play 4 notes per sting.1 string=4 notes, 2=8, 3=12, 4=16, 5=20. Were you stop at the end of the second beat is how many. which finger is the last note if you don't end on the last one. The world record is 1,440 in a minuet-24 per second. I've benn playing for 19 years & can fit in some quik burst.

metal=life 2002-11-07 11:50

dude, put a clip on the forums of u playing...just do a lick that has 20nps (thats the only way people might belive u)

damonta 2002-11-07 15:21

How do I put it on. My computer won't burn disk. I can tape my guitar. I'll get my mothers boyfriend to load it up this weekend.:homer:

Becker rules 2002-11-07 17:25

I can do18 alternate picking, around the same sweeping, tremlo picking or unsynchronised death metalish picking I could do a fir bit more.

The record for picking is well over 24 marco paus can do above 30.

When judging your max speed you have to have 1 pickstroke per note no trem picking

damonta 2002-11-07 18:12

I got it on tape. I only get 19. The 20th keeps landing on the next beat. Who is marco paus?

set it to 60bpm, so its 1 beat per second.
then how about using this as a guidline. its 4 notes per string aswell:

e--5-6-7-8------------------------------------------------------
b-------------5-6-7-8-------------------------------------------
g-----------------------5-6-7-8---------------------------------
d---------------------------------5-6-7-8-----------------------
a-------------------------------------------5-6-7-8-------------
E------------------------------------------------------5-6-7-8--

i can pull 15nps for that. but i'm not sure how clear the notes ring.
