    Ive been playing Bass for around a month now, but due to other circumstances I cannot get a tutor or any videos etc. I am very serious about learning Metal on bass and wish to play songs from Metallica, Iron Maiden, Slayer, etc, but mainly Metallcia. I have just started in a band and I can play one metallica song with them ( and I know a few others) but if anyone has any tips on playing metal bass, please, please I am begging you to post here.
    Thanks to all, and any help would be greatly apprecitated.

    learn the individual sections of the song...especially in some of the early metallica stuff. Once you know each section it is easy to then piece it all together to form the whole song. If you try and learn the whole song straight away you will probably get lost.
