Hey does anyone know any good bass scales for tapping? And if it's not too hard, any good scales for sweeping?

I need to learn how to use scales for tapping since I do a lot of it. That way, my guitar player can come up with a lead or a guitar part for anything I happened to come up with.

Deliriumbassist is completely right. Learn the notes and positions of any scale and get to work; no scale is better or worse than any other for technical purposes or techniques, they just sound different.

Okay thanks, guys. I guess any will do for now. I wish I knew the names of a few so I could go and research them.
