The Flight of The Bumblebee was written by the russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov in 1899-1900.

It's a very technical piece of music, which means it's perfect for shredders like you and me.

I use alternate picking here, but experiment with both the fingering and picking techniques to see what you like the most. I've seen some guys tap it, some guys use economy picking...

If you're up for a real challenge, I encourage you to learn to entire composition. The notation and music is public domain so you should easily be able to find the complete notation on the web.

Good luck!
