I've just started practicing slap bass so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for easy songs to practice with.

Higher Ground by The Red Hot Chili Peppers, that's a pretty standard "first slapping song". Also try Killing In The Name by Rage Against The Machine, I usually slap on that song just because it gives it a more unique song.

try "Take the Power Back" by Rage against the machine. cool slap in there


That's another good one. Really most Rage Against The Machine songs are good slap songs.

Power Mad by Primus is a good slapping song.

I don't know if its good for beginner's or not, because I don't slap, I prefer tapping.
