Not really, though if I could wave a magic wand and be as fast as Paco I would take it. But though I can play runs pretty fast, I would settle for Sabicas' speed. Really, as I said, blinding speed is fast enough.
It's fun to watch Paco's runs and go "oooooh," but in the end one goes "oooooh" just as well at Sabicas, Paco Cepero, Grishsa, and others. And the fact is anyway, that there are relatively few places where you can turn speed on. Here and there in classical, and even in flamenco, where you would expect more opportunity, the fact is that there are only a few palos where you can use great speed.
There is a misconception about flamenco - that it is played "fast." The truth is - notwithstanding that you mostly hear flamenco played fast - that the majority of palos are more of an introspective nature, and should be played at a moderate to slow tempo depending on the palo. This includes Siguiriyas, Soleares, all of the "toque libre" (free time) palos - Granadinas, Malaguenas, Tarantas, also Tientos, Peteneras, Farruca . . . You can turn on all the speed you want throughout in Bulerias, Zapateado . . . to a certain degree in Alegrias. But even though Alegrias goes reasonably fast, it isn't generally played at breakneck speed. Same for Sevillanas. Like Alegrias, it just needs to be lively.
To recur to my original point, I consider "unbelievable blinding speed" to be an absolute term, and as such does not admit of degrees.
