Nothing can. You'll never emulate him.

He uses natural minor scales though. The occasional melodic minor.

Well, I suggest practicing really hard for really long time to get that level of technique. That bit is in F minor:

Code:
-------------------------11-11-------------------| -------13-13-14-14-11-11-------14-14-13-13-14-14-| -10-10-------------------------------------------| -------------------------------------------------| -------------------------------------------------| -------------------------------------------------| -------------------------------------------------| -11-11-13-13-------------------------------------| -------------10-10-13-13-11-11-10-10-11-11-------| -------------------------------------------11-11-| -------------------------------------------------| -------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------11-11-------------| -------11-11-13-13-------131313-------13-13-14-14-| -10-10-------------10-10--------------------------| --------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------| --------------------------------------------------| -------------------------------------------------| -13-13-------------------------------------------| -------13-13-10-10-11-11-13-13-11-11-10-10-------| -------------------------------------------11-11-| -------------------------------------------------| -------------------------------------------------|

Whole song? Or that pre-solo part?

Well, it's hard to emulate someone's style. Even harder to describe someone's style through words. I recommend listening and learning many Buckethead songs...

Practice, Live, And Breath Buckethead. Get all the same equipment he uses, get a KFC Funeral Bucket, Quit your job, and practice all day untill your as good as him.

Even then though, I doubt you can make it sound like the actual song. Everyone has their own style, and Bucketheads is very unique.

Study some of the bucket's songs then, Notice the intervals and licks he likes. Maybe some Paul Gilbert, as he taught Buckethead for a period of time.

See the Buckethead Backyard Solo and you'll see a what improvising for buckethead is like.

Learn how to do 7 fingered tapped augmented arppegios and Aeolian legato runs all at rediculous speeds combined with complex musical structures and rhythms. Also, be sure to find theme songs that song cool and make bitchin renditions of them. Fingerpickin is a must as well.

This reminded me of the John Petrucci Psycho Exercises (the dubbed one)

While this thread is about Buckethead I'm currently learning "Welcome to bucket head land" (my favorite song from him)it's pretty challenging for me but I have most of it down with a few exceptions which I don't understand so here's a link :


How do you play the bit at 22 seconds?


http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs...nd_ver4_tab.htm

(it's the 2nd 16 note section with the 6 above it) Also what scale is it? Is it a major scale?

If it is I won't be able to tell as I only know the first position, thanks to anybody who helps me out here, this is a real good challenge for me (9 months now)
