Can anyone recommend some good songs to slap with bass? I just learned to do it properly and i would like to practice more. Anything from Jazz to Metal is alright. Prog is even better.

I can't slap to save my life, and most of my bass inspirations don't do it either. But I've heard a great many people suggest Higher Ground by the RHCP as a good one to start with. If you want to slap, you have to listen to funk. Larry Graham (he invented it; more or less) and Bootsy Collins are essentials.

Thanks, it seems that lots of RHCP music has slapping, which is good because i like Flea's playing and the bands music.

Take the Power Back by RATM is a good one to start with as well!
Definatley look into Funk though!
