I don't know if you've noticed, but many solo guitarists (such as Buckethead and Steve Vai), although phenomenal at playing, will come up with things that sound like complete crap, and put them into an otherwise awesome song, ruining it almost completely. My question is: Why?

theyve run out of awesome ideas, s they try to innovate,
and it sucks when they take the risk, because its usually not worth it

With artists like that, they most certainly do not play for you. They play because they can make a living doing something they love. In their case especially, they aren't likely to stick to one particular sound, simply because people like that. They want to innovate, they want change.

Don't you understand the importance of correct spelling and grammar? It's the online symbol of maturity. And you as sure as hell don't have that.

Your last job only paid you $7.00 AUD an hour? That's like $6.05 in the US. What the hell is the minimum wage over there?

The only thing I dislike is when they try to drag out a triplet an extra half beat. Seriously, nobody else is playing along with or even know what the hell you're doing in the band. Extending that triplet out for a little extra delay just throws everyone, including the listeners, off

Henk heeft gelijk. WIN /THEAD LULZ

But yeah, its certainly not the person that you are that makes the artist want to stick to it's main sound.
But people change and so do you, so maybe you wil like the song after a while.

You never know.

I didn't mean to offend anyone. I just was pointing out that there are certain things that, according to everyone I know, just don't sound good. Especially in Buckethead's case, when he starts to shred (chromatically?) in certain songs. For instance, in The 13th Scroll (album: Cobra Strike), the speedy solo part just... doesn't seem musical. I'm NOT bagging on Buckethead (he's my favorite musician). I'm just simply asking "Why?"

Maybe they just have a different opinion regarding what sounds "good" than you.
