I'm not a guitar player by any stretch of the imagination, but I've wondered this for a while - the solo during the Paradise City intro, during the 2001/2002 era, with Buckethead, was that played with one guitarist, or two? It sounds to me like a sort of trade off, on the notes, with out playing the solo itself (sorta) over another player bending notes, always wondered and hoping the more astute members out there could enlighten! If theres a clear reason, apart from just playing a different style to previous guitarists, I'd like to know why, :S
