Top 10 Most Emotional Buckethead Songs

The Top Ten

1 I Love My Parents

I can really feel the sadness of losing my parents when I listen to this song, even though they are still alive. It's nearly as if buckethead's emotions transfer unto the life he has lived and what he has been through. Honestly brought me to tears

Glad to see this list. Some people say Slash is better because he has more emotion in his songs/solos. While Buckethead just keeps shredding for hours. They probably never tried Buckethead's songs. - zxm

2 Sail on Soothsayer

It's the most gut wrenching piece of music out there.

It almost like I can feel his sadness while writing this piece...

This is his saddest song. He wrote it after his Aunt Susie died. - Gigan

It gets me every time

3 Soothsayer

Without this one the "bucket of emotions" is 50% empty.

Laugh out loud, why wasnt this song on the list? Somewhere In the big solo, he bends more emotionally than slash in november rain.


This song brings tears in my eyes every time I listen to it! Pure emotion... He is god, a true talented guitarist šŸ˜Š

4 Big D's Touch

The first time I heard this song, it took me somewhere. Somewhere I had never been before. Quite honestly, many of Buckethead's songs take me places but there are only a hand full that bring me to that place every time. Big D's Touch is the one that is guaranteed to put me in a mindset and it feels somehow relatable with actually saying anything. It speaks without words. Buckethead truly is a master of the language of music.

Melody at its best...

5 Padmasana

Very deep and touching guitar arrangement by Buckethead. It is simply incredible how he can come and go over based on the same riff. His soloing in this song is one of the best, and show how good and talented Buckethead is. And above all, it touches me and changes my emotion every single time I listen to it.

This song was number 4 on my top 10 buckethead song list and I would probably put it at number 2 on this list. But there's only 1 maybe 2 parts that are really emotional but it's still a really great and really pretty song. - Mechagodzilla

If you r searching for Buckethead Emotional songs then definitely Padmasana must be your 1st choice (but everyone have their own choice so I have mine ;) ) 2nd best I love my parents, - arijit-hellseekerdas
