Listen Now

Guitar instructor John Taylor plays really fast. In fact, the Westminster man is the fastest player on earth-- according to Guinness World Records. He played Flight of the Bumblebee at 600 beats per minute. But, Taylor didn’t stop there. Recently, he broke his own record, playing at 620 bpm. Taylor, who has wanted to play fast since he was 14, says “It still doesn’t seem real that it happened, I’m just some guy that likes to play his instrument.” Ryan Warner met John Taylor in CPR's performance studio.
