Ahah, I finally figured out the exact slap riff in Power of Equality!

    EDIT: Gah, I posted this in the wrong section. Can a mod move or lock this?



    I'm talking about the envelope filter slap that comes right after the 2nd chorus. It took me about an hour of trying different things, many live tapes and staring at Flea's hands, and listening to an isolated bass track. I FINALLY understand what he's doing here. For a while I thought I had it, but I saw his hand movement didn't match up, so I figured out this:


    ---------------7----7----5----5-----7-----7-----7-
    ---------------------------------------------------
    --3---3/5---x-----x----3----x----5-----x-----x----
    ---------------------------------------------------


    And that's it. Keep in mind he was using a fretless which makes the slide sound blended.
