Unfortunately outside of what's been mentioned in your OP, there's not that much other stuff I can suggest.

If genre isn't hugely important, I would take a look at some Level 42, a jazz-funk band whose bassist Mark King is an excellent slap-bassist, probably one of the best. I'd suggest the following Level 42 songs:


Lessons In Love
Running In The Family
Love Games (intro)
Hot Water
Guaranteed
True Believers
Mr Pink (quite hard, but sounds awesome if you want to solo)
The Sun Goes Down (Living It Up)
World Machine


These with the exception of Mr Pink are decently straight-forward in terms of what's being played but will really test your technique.

I'm a massive Mark King and Level 42 fan so if studying Level 42 is something you want to do, I can suggest some more albums and songs to look at.

Give It Away, though I'm not sure if Flea plays that with slap. If not, then playing that with slap should be easy :B

I'm not sure it Guerrilla Radio's chorus is played with slap... I've never bothered to figure out that one.

EDIT: Forget that, Guerrilla Radio doesn't have slap. However the intro to "Take the Power Back" does, should be fairly easy.

Check out some Jamiroquai, a few slap songs include:

Emergency on Planet Earth
Virtual Insanity
Alright

These are all pretty easy for slap, as you get better check out some Primus like Tommy the Cat

If you really want to have some fun as you get better, figure out some of Victor Wootens songs and learn double thumbing. :P

he said easy.

the song Fly Away has the most simple easy slap bass line, but it sounds really nice.

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.
