Not necessarly the shred side but artistic side and this kind of creativity.

Anyone know any? BucketHead really seems to have an unique style and I like it but can't find more of it.

Thanks in advance

Well yeah he has a very very unique and original style, he's the kind of guitarist I want to sound like, but I really can't find anything that sounds like him seriously.

The only artist I know that is very different from him but they have a bit of common in style or creativity is Joe Satriani, but they still are very different.

What i've noticed is most shredders like vai and buckethead have their ownway of playing, a a unique style thats impossible to copy

I must say, I don't like Buckethead at all. It seems like he's weird just for the sake of being weird.

I'm sorry maybe I'm just dumb or missing something, but i don't see how they are alike??

(btw i do respect both of them, Buckethead is amazing and Synyster Gates is pretty good)

Buckethead wears a mask therefore he must be a legend.....

He's just a good shredder - that's all.

I respect your opinion, but he's not weird at all in fact and is a great guy. He just have a lot of imagination and a lot of creativity, all what it takes to be a good guitarist.

You probably didn't hear a bunch of his songs... And the mask is like I said, a product of his imagination. He has that storyline he invented "in his head" and etc. I can't really see how to explain this kind of thing. But same thing again, I respect your opinion and don't wish to start some flaming arguments.

If he takes off the bucket off his head, I'll listen to his music. I refuse to listen to the music of a man who wears a bucket on his head. Sorry.

That's a dumb reason not to listen to music. It's like saying I'm not gonna listen to black metal because corpse paint looks silly.

And you say something like that!

I have many of his songs and a fair number of boots - i like lots of the songs, he is a good composer, if not great songwriter.

His technique is very much his own.

However - he is overrated by all the kids who actually do not know his songs and jump on the "bucketwagon"

I have to say that I completly agree with you and it frustrates me really, but it's not a reason to hate on an artist or criticise him

Lol bucketwagon

Steve Vai has some similarities but I find him to be a little too far out of it at times. I want to listen but he's just going beyond my limits of strangeness with some of his music.
Joe Satriani is good though and John5. I think the NZ band Jakob has some similarities on the ambience side of things with some Buckethead tracks like ones from Colma and Electric Tears and Acoustic Shards to a degree.

Buckethead wears the mask because he wants people to like his music, not him or like him for how he looks. He doesn't want people getting wrapped up in how he looks as opposed to how he plays which in a shallow world is what tends to happen. If the guitarist isn't filling the 'view' general public want then their music won't generally get heard. Not many people would praise a metal guitarist if he played in a pink tutu all the time, they'd just get stuck on the pink tutu. Some get stuck on Buckethead's bucket or mask, and some hate him merely because he won't talk. But he's great to listen to if you want to, all comes down to the want or desire to hear him usually.
I think he's a highly talented guy and for someone who isn't so well known in other parts of the world like in NZ and doesn't really go in for making music for money and stuff thats pretty cool. I find him to be more of an inspiration than other guitarists.

That pink tutu thing made me lol

But he doesn't wear a mask just for that reason, but also because he likes it and it's his character... It's his imagination and he doesn't care what other people has to say about it, he does it all for him.

I once saw somebody carry a Guitar Hero controller in a case to protect it. He probably should have packed his testicles in there too, seeing as he won't need to use those for quite a while.

doesn't buckethead have some sort of disorder, hence his reason for not talking? i don't recall what it was, but i saw people going on about how buckethead had some disorder in his youtube video comments. i could be wrong, just curious... i always thought it was a character.
