I brace my hand slightly sideways and mostly use my wrist. Doing this way I can hit the button about 8-10 times per second. (Unlike the world best who is about 20-ish).
I mostly blame Caveman Games. And if you're old enough to know what I'm talking about, then you get a gold cookie.

I can't tap fast enough for this game either with my thumb. Luckily I can if I put down the controller and tap with my index finger.

I remember the sock trick worked wonders on wrestlemania : slide you hand in one of your socks and pretend the controller's button are made of brass and you're polishing them w/the sock... by rubbing on and over a button you can get some quick(er) pressing action. Hope this helps...

Tilt the controller and mash said button with both your thumbs. Works like a charm and I hardly break a sweat.

When playing against my friends or anything that involves button mashing, i always end up top =).

I actually hold my thumb up in the air and press the buttons with the bottom of my joint. I find it easier to more or less hold my thumb still and actually press buttons by shaking the actual controller in my hand..... not sure if that made sense lol

I personally put down the controller and tap the buttons.

Doing it from the usual position is impossible. I had kinda hoped they would fix that in the remastered version. Its just as bad as the original. Hopefully, part 2 is different?

I find the best way is to place the controller on my leg, and tap the button with my index finger.

Learn how to vibrate your hand, you'll be suprised at how easy button mashing games turn into.

Also, practice on your own with other games, play God Hand for the ps2, that will beat the button mashing skills into you.
