    I believe it's slapping with an envelope filter.

    Yes the first one is slapping with auto wah, and the second one is not slapping, al though when it goes high it sounds like he is poping the notes for a short time, well i do any way to get that extra byte, but all the rest is finger, very kool solo and fun to play

    I think in that song flea uses the electroharmonix big balls.
     
  5. The first sounds like mostly slapping to me. Its hard to tell with the envelope filter. The second part deffinetly isn't. He uses the Electro-Harmonix Q-Tron or Q-Tron+ i forget.
