    Has anyone of you spotted any videos on the net that show this famous four finger technique(and I don´t mean the fretting hand of course :) )? Or any audio files? I´ve heard a lot about this technique but never seen it so I´d like to see it in action.

    I think the *famous* four finger technique is
    a myth. I personly have yet to see anybody do it.
    Well, I saw Billy Sheehan demonstrate it once but he didnt suggest doing it. He uses 3 normally.

    doesn't Oteil burbridge use four fingers? or are you refering to a specific thing like 4 finger slapping or something....I met someone who would slap with his thumb and pop with index,middle,ring,AND pinky....he got crazy octuplets and stuff like that....it was.....nutty.
