I've always been impressed by this song. One of my drinking buddies is an amazing shredder. We used to get sloshed every Fiday night during university. Back then I didn't play guitar but I'd always get him to play Flight of the Bumble Bee. It always tripped me out. His name is Conrad Simon. You have to check out his Myspace page to hear some of his amazingly clean and fast picking.
I'll never be able to play like him but I want to learn to play Flight of the Bumble Bee because it'll be a nice challenge for me.
If you don't know the song check this guy playing it on Youtube (not my buddy Simon - he plays it faster :0 .
Wish me luck! By the way, the photo here is one I took of a live bee with my macro lens and my 10D ditial SLR camera.
