Acoustic Shards is Buckethead's second special release. It consists of acoustic recordings culled from tapes that were reportedly recorded on July 2, 1991 when Buckethead was 22 years of age. This album is considered more of a special release rather than his latest effort.

The album was released on May 31, 2007 by Jas Obrecht, through his label Avabella, who also released the DVDs Young Buckethead Vol. 1 and Young Buckethead Vol. 2.[3] The album was engineered by Tyler Stipe [4]

According to Jas Obrecht:[5]

"For Mom" was first released officially on the album Colma (1998) and "Who Me?" followed on Monsters and Robots (1999).
