    I was searching through some Red Hot Chili Peppers stuff on Kazaa when I came across this video called "Flea slap lesson" I downloaded it, its a very cool little video, only about 4 minutes long but very cool. First he is talking a little about punk, then talks about funk, then slap bass, but when he is talking about funk he plays a really cool old school funk bass riff. I was wondering if anyone else had seen the video and knew was song it was. The video says Fender Players Club 2001 if that helps any at all. Thanks!

    like right when he starts saying it it sounds like he says George Clinton or somthin, but I checked on mxtabs.net under george clinton and only like 2 or 3 songs came up, but none of them matched the song. lol that sucks no one knows it, it sounds really cool.
