Post Buckethead
I have been listening to some buckethead cd's and I noticed he does this rather nice alternate picking lick.
Now I cant remeber where I have heard it. but its sounds major'ish with some cheeky blue notes thrown in.

Ah this is anoying. I will find an song with an example in:-

ok Track 11 from the Big eyeball in the sky LP 2:52 into the song.

Can someone please help by giving some idea of what he's doing????

haha. funny. im not sure what part you're talking about but that solo always reminds me of zakk wylde. theres a blues lick that reminds me of the lick zakk wylde plays all the time.

Les Claypool is such a good bassist. doesnt exactly have a good voice though.

Humm...not sure i'd compare the two , but I do see what you mean.
Buckethead has a much greater control and much better techique in terms of picking.
its sort of his trade mark fast picking lick I think it is typicall something like this on the top two strings

Oh wow, so buckethead was a student of paul gilberts? I never knew that. That is interesting.


Was Paul a private instructor of his, or a professor of his in college?

Who knows? Paul might know or might not. Buckethead could have just been a student in one of Paul's GIT classes.
