    This should be in Recordings, and I couldn't hear any slap solo in that song. Lotsa slapping, but no solo... :confused:
     
  3. I would say that the best slap solo i've heard is the one off 'stone cold bush' by rhcp. If it's not that then it would be some of flea's live stuff that he usually does before songs, Get some live stuff off napster and you'll know what i mean.

    On a "Swedish" site dedicated to Marcus Miller there is a live audio sample of a song titled "Casino" which is out of this world. Marcus has about a 2 to 3 minute which no one else could touch.

    I don't know if I'd consider it the best, but it's one of my favorites. Chili Peps - Higher Ground, off of "Out in LA".

    A Higher ground remix on the "Under the Covers" cd has an awesome bass solo.
     
  7. Ok, I've never considered Fieldy to be an "incredible slapper" let alone consider him a bassist. Alright, let's all go and whack the A-tuned B string to oblivion and boost the highs so it cuts through a song. Yeah.

    I'm just giving my word, not trying to offend anybody.

    in my opinion one of the best slap songs that i have ever heard is "me & my bass guitar" by victor wooten. either that or "u cant hold no groove" by vic, he is a great slap bassist.
     
  10. Les Claypool, pretty much everything he does I like more than anything.

    I really dig the stuff Ray Riendeau is doing...even more than Vic's...
    But the Sinister Minister solo on the Live Art album is stunning...

    For pure slap, I haven't seen a better performance than Mark King's intro solo to "Love Games" on the "Live at Wembley" VHS. I swear that the man is superhuman.
     
  15. I'd have to say 'sinister minister' by victor wooten. it's just a stunning slap bass solo.

    I'd have a very hard choice between a recording of Love games by level 42 played live at the wembley, or a live solo with Bela Fleck and the flecktones doing Sinister minister 12 minutes long! absolutely amazing! or a live solo by Victor Wooten 8 minutes long.

    I just don't understand. With all the music out there by Marcus Miller, Vic Wooten, and Larry Graham, the best slap solo you've ever heard is by Korn Bisquick? I don't want to dis your music, what you like you like, but at least go check out some Marcus Miller. Try his Live album. You might change your mind about this "Fieldy" guy.
