This will only take a minute...

One of the bookmarks that's been sitting in my "things to blog" folder is a video of David Garrett entering the Guiness Book of World Records by playing "Flight of the Bumblebee" in 1 minute, 5.26 seconds.  That's the video at the top.

Later Ben Lee beat David Garrett's record, with a time of 64.21 seconds.

Today I read at Arbroath that that record has now fallen.  Oliver Lewis, playing before a BBC audience (and a Guiness rep) finished in 1 minute, 3.356 seconds (second video above).

If you have a reasonable skill timing your clicking on the "play" and "pause" buttons, you can get these guys to play the piece simultaneously.

  1. You can also use youtube-dl or similar, download both videos & use mplayer (mplayerhq.hu) or VLC.

    Pressing . in mplayer allows you to advance one frame at a time.
