hardly anyone ever suggests funk. Try some Bootsy Collins, Larry Graham, Sly and the Family Stone, George Clinton, the Commodores, stuff like that
no dice.

thanks for the input, keep it coming. and higher ground is a good one

I've never heard Bootsy slap. He's a fingerstyle funk bassist.

almost every red hot chili pepper song are filled with slapping.. try out Get Up And Jump, thats the most funky song RHPC ever made

^ most RHCP's don't have slap in it. I think you're forgetting they've made 3 albums since BSSM. (Although OHM is suprisingly slap filled, Californication and BTW... not so much. Plus in the old days, most of the songs people didn't hear off the albums weren't slap based.) And I would consider Rolling Sly Stone and If you want me to stay way funkier. But, I suppose that's opinion. And the guy wanted non-Flea stuff lol.

Severed by Mudvayne but thats a little advanced...Great basslines though you should hear it...Ryknow (Ryan Martinie i think) the bassist for Mudvayne is the one of the best if not the best bassist in nu metal or w/e u wanna call it...

Any more suggestions, and RHCP has no slapping in it....except for higher ground.

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.

Test the RHCP:s Cant stop................................................................................................ grate song, grate bass line, really fun to play

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.

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.

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