It has no guitar solo, just a guitar melody playing the melody line of the chorus
that IS a guitar solo,

JensJohansson wrote:I'm not sure I'd call it a "regular solo" (shred or obvious improvisation), but in the middle there is a restatement of the first riff in D with some augmented-ish chords on top, and then a little guitar melody part before the last choruses.. the melody is thematically connected to the chorus.

and if Icecab cared what you thought, that post would have value, sadly the only thing more worthless than Icecab is taking an argument with him seriously.

Rebel, will be great to read your buckethead bible review site. That will help pick out which albums to pick up. Be sure to include any album he plays a note on.

what did he call it then?
I'm not sure I'd call it a "regular solo" (shred or obvious improvisation)
if it's not a regular solo, then it's a irregular solo. why not just say "I'm not sure I'd call it a solo" if he did not think it was a solo? nonetheless, it's a lead instrument playing a variation of the main vocal theme with unobtrusive accompaniment. jen's did not call it a regular solo, but he also did not call it a lack of a solo. if that's more correct, ok.

People still set out to trash it, it was too hyped, but Buckethead is so awesome, there was nothing to be done for it.
Rebel wrote: you're letting various prejudices like "Instrumental", or "Releases a lot of music", instead of really exploring the music.
Rebel wrote: Your opinion is of course, wrong
Rebel wrote: Anything Buckethead plays guitar on is flipping cool
Rebel wrote: spending more time bickering on youtube comment threads than listening to music
Rebel wrote: Part of what makes him so incredible is his limitless creativity, he can improvise an entire album's worth of material, and it will sound incredible because he's just that good.

Rebel wrote: Not necessarily art, talent.
I do think Buckethead is an incredibly artistic guitarist, but that's subjective, what I'm arguing is that he is the most TALENTED guitarist to ever walk the face of the earth.
Rebel wrote: I think most people don't consider Buckethead the greatest electric guitar player to ever live, and that means he's underrated...
Rebel wrote: He can play any of those styles with the same precision and feel as the masters of that specific genre. He is the master of anything he tries to do.
Rebel wrote: Ignorance is the only excuse for thinking Slash could even come close to the guitar nirvana that is Buckethead.

You spent all that time compiling quotes, and you're still wrong. :D ISN'T THE INTERNET FUN?!?!?!?!?

what is wrong with my argument? it's a solo by definition.

here is the definition of a solo
so·lo (sl)
n. pl. so·los
1. Music A composition or passage for an individual voice or instrument, with or without accompaniment.

Buckethead rocks, deal with it.

I'm going to try and review Funnel Weaver, never listened to it all through, because it's a bit of an odd setup, but we'll see what happens.

The only thing ridiculous here is going back and finding all those fucking quotes. What if I said I like to listen to Prince solos in daisy dukes while waxing my dads corvette? What if I said I like to deliver pizzas to my ex-girlfriends while listening to george michael solos? What if I said your pumpkin avatar sucks? What if I said I will go very far to claim how amazing jesus christ solos on guitar while I make a milkshake?
