  1. i have been playing my crappy bass for a little bit and i have been saving up money for a better bass or some better equipment. Until then i want to get better on the bass i have.

    Can someone suggest an easy song or two for a bass player who is just starting out?

    the entire Ramones back catelogue is good stuff for dudes who are just starting... Heck they're still fun even when you've been at it for a while.
