Well what I want to know is: if another guitarist comes and does the whole thing buckethead did, like the mask, weird personality, etc, would people just put that guitarist down as a buckethead copy?

The reason I'm asking is because I am a very shy person by nature and have trouble playing in front of anyone, even my own family, but if I wore a mask and pretended I was someone else I would feel more comfortable in front of people. On the other hand I don't want to be looked at as a buckethead copy.

Maybe, it's been done before he did it, but he might even do the whole Kiss thing and just eventually stop wearing the costume

Slipknot all wear maks and they all have messed up personalties.


I heard in reality they are all nerds

To TS's question, I'm sure someone did it before buckethead, but he was not that successful. Just wear a different kind of mask or something, but it would probably be better if you showed your face in my opinion.
VERY METAL!

I reckon i would have more fun if i got to play in a mask or a costume. Its not so much that im shy myself, although i am a little, Id enjoy myself a lot more if i got to put on a little bit of a spectacle. A musical performance should be a dramatic thing!
DOWN WITH THIS SORT OF THING
and
CAREFUL NOW

Dude, I think I would know, Trivium invented Thrash, Metallica are lucky they got as far as they did piggy-backing off of Trivium's signature style.

Buckethead is the best guitarist in the world right now. I hope you weren't suggesting otherwise.

This is one reason I think people might think I am kinda like a buckethead poser if I start wearing a mask at gigs.

unless you can play equal to or better than someone like buckethead, you'll just look like a complete tosser

I wouldn't do it TS, more than likely a load of people won't see your reason behind wearing the mask, so they'll just call you a poser or some crap like that.

TS, i was very shy when I first played infront people but I wore some big aviators and a beanie, so my face was kind of hidden.

Thats what I would suggest vs. a whole mask get-up and what not: big sunglasses and some kind of hat

Yes, nobody famous has ever done that

Anyway. Just do what you want to do. This sounds a bit stupid, but if anyone tells you otherwise, just don't listen to them.

The only people who will criticize you on that are the same people who criticize Buckethead for his looks. They pay more attention to looks rather than the music, which is their loss. If they can't see past visuals, their opinions aren't important enough to matter.

Just to get him comfortable playing in front of people. Then he won't have to worry about "hiding", for lack of a better word, and he could play his music without being nervous.

i dont understand how just because slipknot wears "scary" masks and in reality might be "nerds" makes them poser? I guess everyone who plays metal has to eat babies to be a metal head?

and also, buckethead is intense. But im pretty sure he is completely ****ed up in the mind.


to TS, just dont wear a bucket and you will be fine. Make your own mask.
