Electric Tears is the ninth studio album by Buckethead. It is considered one of his most calming albums in a list that would include works such as the acoustic, “Colma”. The only instruments featured on the album are acoustic and electric guitars played by Buckethead. The tracks on this album are an array of soft mellow tunes as well as apathetic, ambient, and somewhat morose-sounding minor notes that are arranged in melodic fashion. Sometime in 2010, the album was released directly from Buckethead at TDRS Music but has sold out since the summer of 2012.
