For Buckethead fans only 2bh

I just wondered how he does the slap guitar kinda thing

He plays bass so I dont know whether hes transferred it from that,

Id love to give it a go, I just dont have a clue how to
yes it is slapping. im a big buckethead fan and i also play bass as well as guitar. it is easy to transfer over slap bass techniques to guitar, but needless to say the strings arent as thick so it is a little harder. the best way to slap is not to slam your thumb against the string but rather have your thumb sort of "tap" (for lack of a better word) the string quickly. buckethead also plucks the high e, but it is real light. make sure you dont rip off your high E lol
