that is correct... dan really is magical...

Speak Free by Incubus is one of those songs that almost no one has heard. It has one of the coolest slap lines ever.

EDIT: this is pathetic...

Which one? The whole entire verse for Dig is slapped, lots of Prod, and many others. If you want a good Mudvayne song with poppin and slappin, listen to the album L.D. 50. You'll find a good one that you like.

The best place to learn slap is from the masters:

To start out:
Everyday people - Sly and the Family stone It's one note but it gets your feel together
Superstition - Stevie wonder

Once you get better:
Hair-Larry Graham
Get on the Floor - Michael Jackson
Love Games -Level 42
Hot Water - Level 42

I just have to say on a side note, that I rarely slap on any gigs because unless your playing funk music it can sound out of place. So just be aware of that.

Thumbs up

You can't go wrong with Primus or Les Claypool in general. His style is all over the place; if you can play a couple of Primus songs, you can play just about anything in terms of technique (groove, dynamics, etc, that is a different story). Check out "The Awakening" for a real challenge. Don't be afraid of things that are extremely challenging, because those songs are what will improve your chops the most.

Larry Graham practically invented slap bass. Definitely check out his band Graham Central Station. There are a couple of his Super Slapping Bass videos on YouTube where he just jams out on a bunch of Graham Central Station songs. Also, he is one funky mother****er.

There is an old funk/jazz band called Pleasure with some great slap lines. Their song "Glide" is classic. Most of their other songs have great slap bass as well, along with most funk from the 70's.
I play guitar in a funky death metal band called Lobotomizer. Listen to our demo here.
I also slap the bass and I'm learning how to tame the sax.
I go to school at Ex'pression College for Digital Arts. Any questions about it? Ask me.

wow, old thread..

for groove:
Lee Ritenour - Night Rhythms

Luther Vandross - For You to Love (slow slap, but Marcus has amazing feel)

some RHCP slap:
Aeroplane, Tell Me Baby, Naked in the Rain, Stone Cold Bush, Coffee Shop (probably the most difficult slap line Flea wrote)

and some Jamiroquai:
Mr Moon
Travelling without Moving

Well, Can't Stop was one of the first songs I learned on bass, It's pretty easy and it sounds good.

Yeah it's mostly fingerstyle but he slaps every now and then. I play this song almost exclusively slapping.
