    I'm sorry, I would have posted faster, but I ran out of breath from trying to read the biggest run on sentence I have ever seen.


    Unsaid TB rule No1.: Search first, then ask.

    Don't needlessly waste peoples time because you are to "lazy" to do a search.:rolleyes:

    hey man, welcome to da club! :)

    sublime.....well, a good song to learn is santeria, and many of their other songs have nice basslines.

    Don't mind the people who comment on your punctuation, you use commas, and thats good enough!

    [edit] another thing to add, to all the people tellin the guy to search, come on, he just got here, He'll get the idea soon enough.

    Is "don't be a wanker" in the Terms of Service? That could be a useful addition.

  16. start out with some black sabbath stuff, most of it is easy to hear on the songs and isnt too hard to play, maybe start with N.I.B.

    We are in the same boat. I am new to this site and new to bass playing. I am a converted drummer so I found the bass to be quite easy for me to learn for me anyway, I have been playing for almost a year. The only thing I can say is diversify, the different artists you learn, styles, etc. will only make you better. I play it all, I may not like the song my band choses to learn all the time but I appreciate the knowledge I get from a new artist I have not played before. I have learned a lot in a short time because I have diversified the artists and styles I have been learning, it will only help me down the road. Just don't be one of those guys who learns bits and pieces of songs, learn the whole thing, song structure is very important and found to be very helpful in learning other songs quickly. It seems the more I learn the easier it is to pick apart a new song. By the way I got a lot of great advise off this site already, I'm hooked! GOOD LUCK
