    hi!
    theres a weird bass riff in nobody weird like me (red hot chili peppers) at about 2:20. i know what he plays but i dont know how. does flea slap that part or does he use fingerpicking? i dont know exactly, it sounds like slapping a bit but not like he slaps the other parts of the song, perhaps he slaps smoothly or does he use his fingers? anyone knows?

    I saw a video on the internet of flea playing his bass.... Unfortuanetly, his hand was moving so fast that my media player couldn't catch it in detail. But, what I can tell you is that he was slapping with god like precision with ALL of his fingers and his hand was moving up and down the neck of the bass at the speed of light. Conclusion: Flea is a very good bass player (more of an understatement then a conclusion).
