    Hi guys,

    I have been playing bass for almost two years but I have never really been willing to play in slap, and I would like to learn some songs in slap.

    I know pretty much how to slap(and pop too), so I would like to know if you know any song/tab in slap which is not too difficult to play and which sound good. I have heard a riff from a RHCP song that sounded pretty good in slap but I can't remember the title.

    So thanks for your help.

    The main riff of "Higher Ground" by RHCP was the first slap riff I ever taught myself. Google for it, you might like it too, it's pretty easy to play.

    You can always just try to slap songs that you normally play "finger style" and try to get it to sound decent.

    RHCP Song, either higher ground, or maybe Aeroplane, that one is pretty famous, has a cool slap riff..

  5. Nine Inch Nails-Sanctified. Really easy, and it's the first song I've ever learned on bass.
