wtf. Hendrix basically invented the use of overdrive. Without him, most forms of rock, all metal, all subgenres of metal, and basically anything that came out of the rock genre would not be the same. Somebody else might have started the whole overdrive thing instead, but still, buckethead and no any other modern guitarist can have that kind of influence. There is really not enough frontier.

I don't think Buckethead is ahead of Jimi. You have to realize, Jimi died young. He died before all these other genres came to be. Jimi was always listening to different sounds and going in many different directions music wise before his death. I'm sure if he was alive he would be more technically proficient than a lot of players.

However, I think Hendrix was more creative. I've heard a lot of the same stuff through buckethead, and I think he excels mainly in his acoustic or softer side stuff than his fast metal stuff. Hendrix definitely had a sense of rhythm that not many guitarists can replicate. You can go to youtube and find almost 20 different versions of Jimi's songs. You just don't see them released because his estate is trying to cash in on him.

Music is not about skill. It's about who you can impact with your playing. While I think Buckethead is a phenomenal player and definitely proficient on the technical side, I just don't feel him as much as Hendrix.

If anything before trying to compare two completely different genres, you have to compare things that are atleast somwhat alike. For instance, comparing SRV to Jimi would be a more ideal comparison. However, no two guitarists are alike, so you still can't compare them.

My vote would be for EJ as being the modern day Hendrix. Mainly because they're still in the same genre aspect, and EJ's Hendrix covers are nothing short of mind blowing.

I'm glad you noticed . He's definitely had a big impact on my playing as Hendrix has.

Buckethead gets kinda interesting, but his stage persona sucks compared to Hendrix. I don't mean things he does without his guitar, as I find the numchucks and robot dancing to be pretty entertaining, but Hendrix just knew how to work a crowd.

That is a huge component. Buckethead is not well-known at all. I would say that his biggest accomplishment is having the hardest song in Guitar Hero 2. That's how he got a lot of his current fans (same as Dragonforce). Buckethead isn't really a household name. He's rather unknown compared to a lot of people. Buckethead isn't inspiring people to pick up guitar like Jimi did. He's an icon. I'm not saying anything bad about him, but he's like Gilbert, Vai, Satch, and Petrucci. They're amazing guitarists but they'll never be huge because they don't have that universal appeal. Hendrix was needed at the time. You can even find his name in history books. No other guitarist will ever be at that status unless they're revolutionary.

No. There isn't going to be a modern-day Jimi, in fourty years if Mr. Carroll dies there won't be another Buckethead. Each musician is one-of-a-kind due to their ear for tone, playing style, tastes and sound. Nobody is the new or old version of anything, to me saying Buckethead is the new Jimi is an insult to both.

Not just that. Before Hendrix guitar was built on strict blues scales and progressions. Now their not, because Hendrix decided it wasn't necessary, and everyone agreed


...or something like that

Hendrix was very influential for his time. I think that Buckethead is a more versatile guitarist though.
