On the new "Secret Recipe' dvd, there is footage of Buckethead in his bedroom slapping the bejesus out of a p-bass using some type of prosthetic thumb extension similar to funk-fingers. Man can that cat slap! Better than claypool IMHO! fun dvd if you're a b-head fan. very lo-fi, though. He'll be coming through Mad-town in a few weeks on a friday with Galactic on Sunday. Can you say "Lost Weekend"
