Yeah there's plenty of slap-song threads but not like this so i make my own. I'm very new to slap so I wanna learn some pretty easy slap-songs but not too boring. And I also want some harder slap-songs so I can like progress. You could like put a level on the songs, you know like the "I need bass song to learn" thread: Easy, Intermediate, Hard and Expert

There should be a slap section in the "I need bass songs to learn" thread, because this questions been cropping up a lot here lately. Searchbar, my friend.

Anyway, most will probably reccomend RHCP - Higher Ground or Can't Stop. Try Rage Against the Machine - Take the Power Back. First slap song I ever learned, really easy and fun to boot.

Unless you wanna become one of those fat ass 35 year old no-lifers who shred other people's songs on bass before their webcam and live with their mum. So that they can get some praise, and make some little whiney buddies.

That's like a friggin infestation on youtube.

Make your own! Basic chord variations - and there you go.

That's a bit unfair, unless he's an experienced songwriter who's only just now learning some slap songs. Even then, it's considerably easier to learn a new technique by doing exercises and learning songs. Most people like to put all their concentration into learning a technique before they do anything creatiive with it.

hmm.

I had a killer idea.

anyway, learn to play Fly Away by Lenny Kravitz, Higher Ground by the Chili Peppers, and maybe attempt Lacquer Head by Primus. you can do all those.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
