I only really like buckethead for his heavy and technical songs. Which is probably why my favorite album and what I would recomend to people to listen are the bucketheadland vol.1 and 2.

If you really believe that, then you probably would believe anything you read. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but your statement isn't true. I'm not a huge fan of shredding, but someone tapping a few simple lines fast doesn't make them the fastest shredder. Buckethead can play faster than Vai any day of the week. That kind of thing doesn't matter really, but I just can't let this go by without saying anything. :roll:

I don't think tapping has anything to do with it, mate. I'm sure Vai is equally as fast as buckethead at 'shredding'.

Buckethead sure does use it a hell of a lot more though.

No,
The article that did the whole speed thing was talking about a section in the song "The Riddle" where Vai was tapping. Vai is even one who would tell you that he isn't the fastest guitarist. He can not pick as fast as guys like Shawn Lane, Michael Angelo, Rusty Cooley, Theodore Zirus or even guys like John Petrucci or Paul Gilbert.
Speed is highly overrated, and one shouldn't really care about it like some do, but I'm just replying to a comment.

I have also listened to what extreme Buckethead fans say are his best song i.e. too many humans, electric tears, soothsayer, hog bitch stomp, nottingham lace. None of which were of any good. Ok well, Electric Tears is good for a minute or 2 but it's the same thing over and over. And Soothsayer is a good listen once maybe twice. Other than that everything I have ever pretty much just sucked!

pathetic... Buckethead is as good as hmmmm.... steve vai? I hate to compare the two, but I really really love them. They're both impressively amazing.

Buckethead is Buckethead & you know what you're getting with him. Even though he has a little something for everyone, he does it the Buckethead way & some people just don't "get him" I guess. :? Even the 13 volume set probably still won't convert anyone. Lots of experimental stuff on it, but, like I said, it's Buckethead. The guy's put out just as good & even better stuff than the set, so if you don't like him by now, you'll probably never like him. If you're not into Bucket yet, I'd say go with these instead of the set:

Population Override

i thought insearcofthe was great, and it still is.

i have set #289. buckethead and vai are my favorite guitarists. they each have plenty to go 'round, but they both do what they do the best. you can't compare them, it's impossible.

Check out this link. Its from the MAB forum.

http://deb13.proboards31.com/index.cgi? ... 1158846971

THIS IS THE MOST ACCURATE LIST OF ALTERNATE PICKING NPS!

Buckethead can alternate pick 13.5 NPS. Vai can alternate pick 14 NPS. Vai mostly does 13 NPS. As far alternate picking is concerned, Vai is faster than Buckethead by .5 (HARDLY ANY DIFFERENCE).

Remember, these speeds were taken from recordings. I'm sure Vai and Buckethead can go a tad faster. :D

I'm not trying to argue. I just thougt I'd post this link for everyone on this board. 8)

Buckethead oozes passion, feeling, originality & creativity, & he looks silly to boot! :lol: :guitar
