    If you're already used to those "groovy slap and tapping", then why continue to listen to more of it? That's not different styles!

    Expand your horizons. Check out some less wanky bassist who play with bands, like just about ANY jazz bassist, select rock, ska, reggae, pop, rap, etc etc bassists, and you've got far more than just listening to guys who'll play fast. Want those, or more of the same "styles" you're used to?
