Sadly they don't serve chicken at Bucketheadland sad.gif

Anyway, I've probably seen every single buckethead video on youtube, most of them multiple times, so I thought I'd post a guide to some of the best so you can watch, enjoy, and possibly even learn something.

Buckethead's guitar lesson - the only thing this teaches you is humility, as he doesn't play anything slow or explain what he's actually doing. Watch out for the sweep tapping at the end!

Night of the slunk, cool song with a riff that sounds a bit like jordan, sick solo coming at 3:34

Whitewash, ballad-ish song from the album Colma, very calm and soothing.

A new song that hasn't appeared on any album, still pretty damn awesome with some great riffs and soloing.

Welcome to bucketheadland, sweet song with a main riff that's a definite homage to Randy Rhoads, he does an awesome improvised solo after the regular solo in this version (3:30 and on).

Buckethead in the beginning! He had just become Buckethead and is around age 21 in this clip, playing a bit for his family in his back yard. His technique isn't as flawless as it is now, but damn he could shred back then.

A 100% Improvised solo from the song 'The Interworld and The New Innocence'. Very melodic and soulful playing, with his drummer (Brain) showing off in the background.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moqy4G74afc
Soothsayer! A really really good song that starts off slow and builds up into an awesome awesome solo.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KtR-UAp614
Buckethead covering B.B King's 'The thrill is gone' at a private party, the bass screws with the microphone a bit unfortunately but this really shows he can do more than shred.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uk7plGs3RP0
Most of you probably have seen this one, it's Buckethead's Nightrain solo with Guns n' Roses, if you like Slash you probably won't like this one. He does this way better than Slash in my opinion.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlN1ae4lxDc
Knocking on heaven's door with GNR, Solo from 3:13 and behind Axls vocals after that. Definitely the best version of this solo I've ever heard, Buckethead really makes the song here. Even though he's nowhere in sight for the entire video it's quite obvious that it's him playing.



Well, I've left some good ones out but that should be enough to start you off, I wouldn't check all these at once but take a couple every day or so and let them sink in. Enjoy!
