I have always made Buckethead a huge influence.
I've learned most of his techniques and can play them quite well.

But few seemed to escape me.
I just can't figure them out from watching a listening like usual.

The one that attracts me most is his semi-unique sweeping.
He'll sweep 3-4 strings, waddle around on the first and second string, and then come up with his pick hand and start tapping.
It's heard in The Hills Have Headcheese, The latest live version of Botnus, Near the end of soothsayer ect.

I really want to figure this out and put it in my own music, but I've had no luck..
If anyone is willing to help, that would be fantastic.

P.S.
My guitar buzzes when I don't touch the strings. But if a part of my flesh touches one of the strings, the buzzing stops.
Is there a solution to this oddity?

You've got a bad ground soldering. Probably the pickups. Open'r up if you're handing with soldering and fix'r up good.

Ah.
It didn't do it before I took it to Sam Ash to get worked on.
But I think the guy dislodged my killswitch and had to rewire it.
It's possible that he messed it up.

Well, thank you very much for the insight!
