Slash says that Buckethead is an amazing guitar player

In a interview with Guitar World, Slash talked about his opinion on Guns N’ Roses album without him “Chinese Democracy” (2008). And he praised the guitarist Buckethead.

Read what he said:

“You know, it’s very different… it’s really cool stuff, but it was played by guitar players that are very different from me, style-wise.

“I’ve sort of adapted my own way of playing those songs to where I feel comfortable with them, but without losing the integrity of how the guitar parts go. So it’s been a lot of fun to do, like, the song ‘Chinese Democracy,’ which I love playing.

“And there’s a song we’ve been playing lately called ‘Madagascar,’ which, I don’t even know exactly what the guitar parts are on the original at this point because I’ve changed it so much. [Laughs]

“That said, I also want to give credit where credit’s due – the guitar players that played on Chinese Democracy, Buckethead being one of the main ones – are fucking amazing guitar players.

“I have to give those guys a shout-out because that stuff was cool. Very different from what I normally do. So it’s been interesting learning some of the stuff that was on that record. I definitely had to figure out ways to adapt to it.”
