My favorite guitar shred song.
Hey rev I am isolated from a lot of the normal comms channels for music etc no tv, no radio, no newspapers etc so it is great to have people introduce me to new musicians
I understand buckethead is not new (huge discography) but I have never heard any of his stuff before. Truthfully when the shred track you've presented started I was only half listening as I quickly stupidly and unintentionally pre-judged it as a joe satriani meets vai clone (both of whom I can appreciate but neither of whom I like that much >I certainly never listen to any of the albums of theirs that I own<)
Anyway fortunately bucketheads guitar finally managed to infiltrate the dense matter that is my skull at times, and I pumped up the volume and went along for the ride.........
It reminded me of Zappa (v. high praise from me)
so here's a Zappa reply
please note NSFW
the youtube excerpt is off Joe's Garage three tracks
Wet T-Shirt Nite
which leads into the solo I am talking about at 4:42 Toad O-Line
which builds up to 7:47 (brief Central Scrutiniser diversion)
to 8:20 (unpronounceable disease) when it rips back into Zappa guitar
until 9:03 when it segues into Why Does It Hurt When I Pee? (worth listening to for more typical Zappa genius)
let me know what you think
meanwhile I'm off chasing more buckethead
