Is "Power of Equality" by Red Hot Chili Peppers slapped?

    It's rather obvious that Flea is slapping during the chorus, but what about the rest of the song? I really can't tell.

    I don't think that the verses are slapped. The chorus, the solo, and the outro are.

    The verse doesn't sound slapped to me ...Flea can be deceiving but don't forget he plucks mighty hard ...

    the last time i saw a transcription for "give it away" it said slap as well but i never really bought that ....watched some live RHCP youtubes and he plucks that one too...
