    Level 42's "Mr. Pink" and most Stu Hamm's solo tapping pieces like his version of "Linus And Lucy", "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "Flow My Tears". His "Country Music (A Night In Hell)" features both techniques. I love that tune in his original (studio) version.

    I would have to say that a couple of my favs are "The Awakening" Les Claypool and the Holy Mackerel, "Power" Marcus Miller, and The Rippingtons have a cool slap line in the song "St. Tropez" and "Highroller"

    I don't play much tap at all. The only tap song I play really is Mr. Knowitall by Primus, and that's simple.


    RHCP - Aeroplane
    Primus - Frizzle Fry, My Name is Mud
    Jane's Addiction - No One's Leaving
  7. slap:
    mr. bungle - mr.nice guy
    frank zappa - stick it out
    mindfunk - touch you
    RHCP - organic anti beat-box band/get up and jump
    (i do know almost every slap song by them, but i'm more one the groovy side nowdays...)
    only my own works for some reason, maybe i just don't know any tapping songs.
  8. Tap:
    Adam Nitti - Broken, part 1
    Lots of Michael Manring stuff
    Wooten's stuff too

    Michael Manring - Bad Hair Day
    Brothers Johnson - Thunder Thumbs & Lightning Licks
    Buckethead - Stun Operator(les claypool on bass)
    Larry Graham - Earthquake and Water
    Oskar Cartaya - El Yunque
    Primus - Golden Boy
    Stu Hamm - Castro Hustle
    Marcus Miller - Justice(on Kenwood Dennards CD, Marcus has this song free on his site)
