Musician sets world record by hitting a piano key 824 times in 60 seconds
LISBON - A Portuguese-American musician has set a new world record for ‘most piano key hits in one minute’ by playing a note 824 times in just 60 seconds.

Domingos-Antonio Gomes beat the previous Guinness World Record by 59 hits, after spending about four months training for the challenge in Portugal.



"I am a Portuguese-American professional pianist and have been playing since the age of seven," Gomes told Guinness World Records at a music store in Portugal, where the record was set earlier this week.

"I broke this record in order to gain visibility in the international world of music by demonstrating my athletic prowess on the piano," he said.



His technique involved using two alternate fingers to hit the same key, allowing him to play the note at the speed of about 13 hits per second
