"Special Herbs, Vol. 4" is an album of instrumental works released by Daniel Dumile under the Metal Fingers moniker, the fourth part of his "Special Herbs" series. Following the pattern set by previous installments of the series, each track is named for a herb or similar flora.

The album's title is slightly misleading, in that it is not an entirely new volume: the third installment in the Metal Fingers series, "Special Herbs, Vol. 3", appears again here as the first eight tracks of "Vol. 4". For this reason, the album is also commonly known as Special Herbs, Vols. 3 & 4. The difference in record labels on which the two albums were released explains this quirk, similar to the earlier inclusion of "Vol. 1" as the first part of "Vol. 2".
