Try to download "Big walter's shuffle" from audiogalaxy or some other music program. Big Walter plays his shuffle (and his "walter's boogie" too) tongue slapping. Building harmonica technique also has a good section on tongue slapping and other tongue techniques. If you can already tongue block, try to play a note that way, and lift your tongue and put it back on the harp. You'll hear a chord there before the single note. Now, if you play the chord first and then block the two lower notes you get the slap. Do it fast and it will be well done.
I don't have a link, but I can send an MP3 file with the sound (from a recording).
All the best,
