  4. I don't really get exactly how he does it but he slaps with his palm, then his fingers and sometimes adds notes with them.

    That clip's from one of his videos that I have. Basically, it's like using a hand drum pattern on the bass, where you hit with the bottom of your palm right over the bridge pickup and then slap your fingers down in an opposing motion like " \" palm down fingers up to "/" fingers down palm up. You can also add in little extra hits by using your individual fingers to tap instead of slapping down with all of your fingers at once.
