    I'm realatively new at the bass and I'm looking for a good place to learn to slap. I've come across some, but each one is different.

    Thats about right! Beg borrow or steal a level 42 album then listen to Flea. John Entwistle 'slaps' with his fingers, he calls it his typewriter method. Everyone is different learn the baics and make it your own.

    For a comprehensive introduction to slap technique. get Alexis Sklarevsky's Slap Bass Program. It's really thorough.
