Buckethead – Chillout With Bass-Driven Guitar Music

Buckethead - Cycle

Close your eyes and let your mind go as you listen to this sonic treat of bass-driven, instrumental, guitar-centric music. The album is a mixture of spacey funk and ambience, all with a steady, driven quality.

If you’re new to Buckethead, this is an eminently accessible work. Buckethead’s music ranges from this sort of chill out all the way to flatout shred. All of his albums showcase his guitar virtuosity.

Buckethead has received critical acclaim for his electric guitar playing, and is considered one of today’s more innovative guitarists.

Buckethead (Brian Patrick Carroll) is an American guitarist and multi-instrumentalist who has worked within many genres of music. He is a prolific artist, having released 214 studio albums to date, and he has performed on more than 50 other albums by other artists. His music style is hard to pin down, since it spans progressive metal, funk, blues, jazz, bluegrass, ambient, and avant-garde.

Buckethead is known for his trademark garb — he wears a KFC bucket on his head and an expressionless plain white mask. He also incorporates nunchaku and robot dancing into his stage performances.

Though he performs primarily as a solo artist, Buckethead has also collaborated extensively with a wide variety of high-profile artists, and was a member of Guns N’ Roses from 2000 to 2004. He has also written and performed music for major motion pictures, including: Ghosts of Mars, Beverly Hills Ninja, Mortal Kombat, and Last Action Hero.
