Yeah it's all in his picking hand actually.

it's kind of like doing so many pushups that you can roll off 100 so easily when asked.

I dont think anybody would walk away humming the melody he was playing though lol

Well, it's "Flight of the Bumblebee" so, it's not like the tune isn't well-known.
But, like I said: an athletic accomplishment, not artistic.

I think the F# at 3:21 should have been a Gb but if he keeps on practicing he should get it right.

And the guys might want to watch the Iron Maiden video that shows at the end. I think the girl on the left might have been playing a guitar but I really didn't listen.

A lot of work to play that; impressive on an electric, let alone an acoustic....

Accomplished picking there...wow...I wonder how much feel his lead chops on All Along the Watchtower or Feelin' Alright would have smile

Impressive, but the right hand was using a pick. A true spanish guitar player would use his or her fingers, I should think. Anyway, this guy is playing bumblebee with his fingers, and adding some counterpoint here and there, closer to the original piano version. It's a fast song, but in my view, it shouldn't be played as fast as one can so as to lose the musicality of the piece. This is fast enough.
