    What was your first song you could play and 1st cool song you could play. I need some ideas of beginner songs. I can play some songs but their just boring.
  2. Jamiroquai - "When you gonna Learn"...

    Later... "Too young to die"

    The ol' almight Stu Zender still gets a lot of my playing time...

    NIB by Black Sabbath

    Good by Better Than Ezra(Really great rhythm help)
  4. Higher Ground (the RHCP version).

    Then again, I could slap acceptably before I could play a major scale. :D

    Closer to the Heart-Rush

    The Trees-Rush
  7. Settin' myself up for Adam Clayton jokes but the first song I learned to play on bass was U2's "I Will Follow". Wish I still had the bass-a late 60's Ric 4001.

    i learned a lot of rage against the machine and sublime songs early on. "bulls on parade" was my first i think.

    ok well when if first started playing bass, i was going through a nirvana phase, so all i learned was nirvana songs, then after that i went through a RATM/Audioslave phase, and i learned a bunch of RATM and the whole first Audioslave album. I then discovered more bands and learned many songs. My phase now is Queens of the Stone Age.
  10. Not sure, but it was something off Motley Crue's Shout at the Devil. Just don't remember what.
  11. try "soul to squeeze" by RHCP

    A Remark You Made by Weather Report

    One of the first songs I learned. I find it quite easy but to get the phrasing down how Jaco plays it is tricky.

    Some other songs I learned were some basic stuff like Paranoid by Black Sabbath and stuff like that

    Baird6869 RIP Gord Downey. A True Canadian Icon.

    Wrathchild - Iron Maiden. The guy that sold me my first bass taught it to me.

    Sweet Child 'O Mine - First real cool song I learned. It is a heavy song but has a very fun funky flowing rythym.

    Lately, Interstate Love song by Stone Temple Pilots is the coolest and most fun to play song I currently play at gigs. I just love the chorus progression.

    Started off covering the bass part for the school jazz ensemble i teach... So the first I could play was "Groovin'", and a couplea christmas jazz arrangements. The first "not a part in my school ensembles" song I learned was "Lady Madonna"... Working on "New World Man"...
  15. Portrait of Tracy :bag:

    Early Kiss was probably the first stuff I could actually play.

    Not the first song(s) I learned to play, but the first "cool" songs were any number of Rush and Black Sabbath. That is all my first band ever chose to play. So I will put it at "La Villa Strangiato" (sans solo) and War Pigs.

    It was either God of Thunder (KISS), The Zoo (Scorpions) or Takin' Me Back (Cheap Trick).
    All classic tunes, imo.

  20. I think it was Cryin' by Joe Satriani

    Kickass, guitar,bass, and drums tune.

    Especially when you have a couple friends to play it with.

    Its a nice song to play in between songs at a gig.
