BUCKETHEAD is my favorite. And he is one of the best, and probably the best at tapping.

Others are:
Paul Gilber, Jason becker, Marty Friedman, Chris Impillerteri, Michael Angelo Batio, STEVE VAI (similar to satriani), Yngwie Malmsteem, Me (amazing guitarist lol), Jennifer Batter, Michael Romeo.

Different but in my opinion the best guitarists out of any genre, technique and music wise include Paco de Lucia, Nino Miguel, and Al di Meola.

If you don't rate Buckethead as a really good player, then it's more than obvious you haven't even bothered to watch him play. He had lessons with Paul Gilbert, and in my opinion is definitely on par with him

i'm kinda undecided about bucket head, sure some of his songs are pretty decent, but sometimes i find him unlistenable like hes just playing noise or something

yes hes talented, but NOT on par with paul gilbert imo

Rubbish. He's on the same level as gilbert, without a doubt. They have completely different styles but they're definitely on the same level.

Another excellent guitarist is Andy Timmons. He's signed to Steve Vai's label and is quite unknown.

And every song on most of his albums sound exactly the same.

He's got a few good songs, but his albums are always weak...

Forget about the music (that is personal preference), TECHNICALLY Buckethead is among the best out there

I doubt they have. He has a dozen or so albums and they are so diverse it's unbelievable. He does it all, from heavy rock to soft mellow songs with feeling. He can play insanely fast, but it's not what he's all about. He can mix it up, from fast to slow.

I can't believe people would dare say Buckethead isn't good, then list Malsteem as a great player. Now his songs all sound like the same. All he's good at is playing fast.

That's not necessarily a bad thing, and you're sort of barking back the same thing "the memory" barked out.
