Can someone please tell me what people are doing when the use like all their fingers to do crazy tapping. I've seen Jason Becker and BucketHead do it. I can't figure it out though.Any help or examples would be appreciated.

Try the intro to Building The Church by Steve Vai for an introduction and simple pattern to get you accustomed with the technique...

Not much to say. They're using a different finger to tap each strings and basically doing stuff that most of us will never be able to do well.

Stu Hamm, Les Claypool and Satch all do these amazing multiple finger tapping solos. I'm trying to learn Midnight by Satriani and its pretty fun and challenging at the same time.

Midnight and intro of bamboo, both by Joe Satriani is the perfect example of that technique. If you want learn it i suggest you to start with midnight cause the easy pattern but great's sounding.
