    Dude, do you have postal service? If so, I can recommend tons of good books you can mail order, from your computer no less. But tab for slap? Bad idea my friend. Without the rhythms, you ain't got the single most important part of the whole thing, and tab isn't going to give you the rhythms. Not to mention, what part are you slapping and what part are you popping??? Hmm....this would be one instance of a place where tab REALLY falls flat....
