Looking for any of you guys who happen to play the style?

I'm trying to get a decent grip on slap/pop simply for the sake of making myself a better bass player -- that, and I've noticed some metal songs sound really good with a nice thwap! on whatever note you're hitting for emphasis. I've been messing with the examples here:

Slap It! Funk Studies for the Electric Bass - Slap Bass Examples

And having a lot of fun. Any good resources/practice type sites, or even better, some good songs to practice it in?

Note: The bass I'm using for this is tuned D-G-C-F-Bb (extra high string, down 1 step) if that makes a difference -- or if you know of any examples that capitalize on having the extra high string.

Turns out Franck from Adagio has some instructionals which look pretty interesting.
