    don't even bother searching for bass players who utilise tapping in a song (the only one i can think of who does it in a semi-accessible rock context is Les Claypool, but i find his tapping to be kind of shallow) - try checking out guitarists instead! these guys are mad for it. i honed all of my tap chops straight from Kirk Hammet's (Metallica) book of shred ;) of course, some of the stuff will be out the range of your bass, but there's still heaps that can be "converted" to bass.
  3. try Van Halen. the guy was well know for it.

    it's been my experience that guitar tapping and bass tapping are different ballgames.. that said.. look on there are some cool lessons there... or just make up stuff.. play root-fifth with your left hand on the E and A strings, and minor scales with your left hand on the other 2. some cool stuff can be made
