This is one of my top favorite guitarists. He deserves the most attention he can get. Somebody this good has the ability to become as famous as they
want, but he chooses to remain anonymous by wearing a bucket over his head.
Regardless, there are no words to describe his guitar playing ability. There are many great guitarists, but Buckethead is in a class of his own.
Taking cues from every genre there is and turning them into his own masterpieces, there is no telling how a song may unfold. Some are downright
beautiful. Please do not judge his ability from these songs below, they were only posted as a few favorites of mine. Look him up!
Thanks! Ive been teaching and playing since I was 18 years old in the 70's. I play and have played every style you can think of. But, I have to
admit...when I saw that backyard vid...I was astounded that he could replicate the individual styles so masterfully. He wasn't copying some licks and
showing off...but showed an understanding of each of the styles he replicated.
Even with a lifetime of studying styles...its hard to be SO proficient at all of them as Buckethead is. Whether one likes him or not...show anyone
ELSE that can play each of those styles in one sitting. I'd welcome seeing it.***
**PLEASE guys! Don't go telling me about some other guitar god speed demon that can do everything...theres a bunch. I know 'em all.... Show an
example of one who shows THE SAME mastery of ALL of them in one sitting...as BH does!
I have seen him live once when I was 20 or 21, with that 1 guy. I remember seeing the marquee 'Buckethead that one guy' and thinking it was a joke
or something. Was definitely cool to see Buckethead play live!
