I've got an old beginners book, but are there any good songs to get me started?
This should not be in the bass forum.
However, my opinion would be to look for songs that you like and are familiar with and find a good teacher. Otherwise, it's hard to beat learning from a DVD.
Wrong forum - moved.
Well, I listen to a lot of Christian music, so if you are cool with that, some good stuff to start with (er, I started out with were)
"Unbelievable" and "When in Doubt" - Thousand Foot Krutch - songs sound good and are ridiculously to get the basslines down.
Uh, tryin to think of what else...a lot of the music by Skillet is pretty easy...
Well, after the beginner stuff, I quickly started on Five Iron Frenzy - ska lines are not the easiest thing to learn...
I started with AC DC back in black...
Good song for beginners I think
QUIET RIOT - C'MON FEEL THE NOISE
i learned this song the first day i started playing bass
any old punk songs are good to start with nice and simple, blink 182 has really easy bass lines
Start with classic simple lines, it'll help develop your style. I would suggest:
"Eight Days a Week" - The Beatles
"Don't be Cruel" - Elvis
"Last Kiss" - J.Frank Wilson
"My Girl" - The Temptations
Listen to everything you can, it'll give you ideas on how to form your own lines. Enjoy!
Rock on with the TFK! Though i wouldn't recommend anything by skillet for a beginner, John Cooper is pretty crazy from the tabs i've read.
Try "The Reason" by Hoobastank. I learned it in five minutes or so.
And if your into Ska try "Little man" by The OC Supertones and Riot Gear by Five Iron Frenzy they're alot of fun.
Blink 182 has pretty easy songs as well
The first song I learned on the bass was Good Times Bad Times by Jones (Led Zeppelin).
