Domingos-Antonio Gomes hit the piano keys a staggering 824 times in one minute.
Portuguese-American pianist Domingos-Antonio Gomes has smashed the record for the 'Most piano key hits in one minute', proving he has the fastest fingers in the business.
The pianist played B7, the second highest key on a piano, a mind-blowing 824 times in 60 seconds – that’s more than 13 hits a second!
In order to beat the previous record of 765 hits, Gomes practised his technique for four months, which involved alternating between two fingers to press the key as well as a metronome to keep a steady rhythm.
