    Can someone suggest a good 5 string slap book?
    I've gone through Tony Oppenheim's "Slap It" and am now getting a little bored.
    I'm looking for something w/ just riffs;I don't need all the "begginnner" exercises.
    I do better w/ a book rather than youtube vids as I've tried some of those as well. Thanks for any help

    Slap Bass by Anthony Vitti, Berklee teacher.
    Look up his website.

    If you are looking for just riffs, this is a solid start.

    I have to concur with the above suggestion as well. I guess you could use most of the slapping books out there, but be creative with the fingerings and transpositions in order to take advantage of the extended range of the 5er.

    Are you suggesting the "Slap Bass Bible" or "Bass Solo" book or both?
