Best Buckethead Songs

Counting down the greatest songs from the master shredder.

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Soothsayer (Dedicated to Aunt Suzie)

This song is absolutely astounding. It reminds me of times I've longed to experience once again that just make me feel happy. It's a completely beautiful song, and this was my inspiration to play guitar. To this day, I can play full songs fromIi believe 3 of his albums.

82 Hold Me Forever

The best of the incredible Pikes series which is surely the pinacle of musical endeavour since the invention of electricity.

Ms. Carrol would be proud. May she rest in piece with this beauty that should definitely be top 10.

83 The Fairy and the Devil

One of my favorite songs!

Sublime. Wish it was longer.

84 Electric Sea

The emotion in the guitar playing is consuming. You really do feel like you're out in an electric sea. Incredible.

85 Er

Such an emotional song. The new Soothsayer. Dedicated to his mom, Nancy York Carroll. I love Buckethead and I thought no song could ever come close to Soothsayer, but after hearing this song (well the whole album really, but this song in particular) I'm not so sure anymore. A thirteen minute masterpiece that showcases all of his shredding abilities and conveys so much emotion.

This solo made me cry, for real, in most of his solos, he has a bit of chill like "I'm not gonna shred yet." it usually has that build up.
This has a small build up, and opens into some awesome guitar work, the ending when the drums pick up make me wanna cry and smash something because it's so awesome.

A 14 minute solo of pure emotion. Dedicated to his mom, this is Buckethead's best.

One of the best songs I have ever heard in 30 years of listening to music.

86 Lebron

Originally written because of buckethead's feelings of awe from seeing James LeBron the famous NBA basketball player. This is such an uplifting song and should definitely be top 20.

Great song that is my 2nd favorite on that album, My favorite on that album, and my all time favorite by buckethead is LeBron's Hammer.

87 Nun Chuka Kata
88 Lebrontron
89 The Android of Notre Dame

Holy jeez, this song really hits the spot. It's more progressive rock than his usual songs, but it seems to stay collected. It keeps an eerie feeling that is also REALLY catchy, and man... Those solos...

I saw buckethead with Guns N' Roses on the Chinese Democracy tour. It was the second to last show before the tour was scraped. This song needs more votes and where is Go Go Power Rangers or Waiting Here I don't see any Praxis songs either. Oh well can't really blame you man there are so many songs to choose from and not one song that I don't like.

90 Watching the Boats With My Dad
91 Hills of Eternity
92 Mannequins Are My Friend
93 Chase the Darkness Out

On of Big B's Best Songs..
There are so many songs you could add to the top 10^^

94 Witches On the Heath
95 Beyond the Knowing

Nice hybrid acoustic picking, nice and beautiful.

96 Fractal Shadows

If you like Soothsayer and Padmasana you just gonna LOVE this one so much. Should be number 2 just behind Soothsayer (or number one) for me. I still don't know/understand why everybody is missing this awesome song...

So emotional

100 Look Up There

I know buckethead has plenty of great songs, I am still discovering them all. This song is my #1 hands down, yes even over Soothsayer, Nottingham Lace and others. Just my 2 cents worth.

Long guitar solo, nice pike all in all.
