Why not study buckethead techniques on one of his many DVD's, or youtube clips!?

He uses one to great effect in "Dream Girl" which is also one of my faves! smile.gif

It's not that complex at its core. It just looks like it's tricky in the rhythm of it.

He's playing legato with the left hand, and putting a rhythm into it with the switch. Jordan's a little less complex and might be a better illustration.

I underand that might be an issue laugh.gif I wish i could be more helpful. The problem with good kill switch use is, not many people actually use them! so a lesson might be tricky.

You would be supprised how much you can pick up from just studying an artists playing though! smile.gif

The key is to play the silence. You push it down after the end of a note and release it at the start of the next one.
