No. Buckethead would own BBF anytime, any day, anywhere.

And you have every right to prefer Bucket, but technically speaking BBF can do more.

No. Buckethead would own BBF anytime, any day, anywhere.

Bucket comes very close and is a shred god too. But BBF doesn't rely on repeated fast patterns ever (like someone said before in this thread), has perfect pitch & complete theory knowledge and can apparently play any song by ear with the first try, can play a fretless guitar about as well as a fretted one, is a much more capable tapper & legato player - for example, he can do two polyrhythmic riffs at the same time, can play equally well on a '59 Les Paul with a baseball bat neck as with a Vigier with a modern slim neck, can hybrid pick like hell... the list goes on. I would argue BBF is among maybe the top 10 most technically competent guitarists who ever lived.

I own some of his records. While that was admittedly an exaggeration, BBF does so much less than Buckethead (or the majority of guitarists for that matter).

I did and can you really point out in what songs he uses the same patterns, or similar riffs, licks, patterns and whatnot? I've listened to his whole discography - even rare albums and tracks that arent part of his discography and collaborations - and I cant really hear similarities, but you will point me out them so I'll make sure to double check the songs you mention. I mean...you will not find. If you try too hard, maybe.

ok please show what repeated fast patterns Ron playes. It will be hard for you to find. and after you are done trying to find it you could just look at every live video with Bucket where he playes something fast.

Buckethead has become more sloppy the last couple of years in his live performances and even if it would be in his prime days he wouldn't be able to over play Ron.

I think people are confusing technical ability with who they prefer as a guitar player
Philly 2002: No show
East Rutherford 2006: Split GA, on rail, back pit
Camden 2011: 2nd row in pit. Best show

Technically one of the best ever. Also has a great amount of feel in his playing, similar to Slash. Listening to Soothsayer right now as a matter of fact. Wonderful song. Based on his enormous output of music over the years, Bucket has to be one of the most prolific guitarists who ever lived.

That would explain Bucket's majority.

There is this thing called Jazz, When you hear it you would argue that bumblefoot is among the 1000 most technically competent guitarists who ever lived.
