    I was gonna put this in technique thought he would be better.

    Does anyone know any good songs with cool taped bass lines like solo basssits. Songs like over joyed by victor wooten or even songs that have a taped bass solo or something like dream theater- metropolis

    Billy Sheehan has tapped solos in some of his work, especially when he played for Talas. There are some Sheehan fans who might be able to give you the exact names of the songs containing his tapped solos.

    Primus - DMV (on Pork Soda. The only real tap-heavy song on their I can think of. It's got a great funk-tapping breakdown. But the album is worth it for that one and "Hamburger Train" alone (the rest is good too :) ).
