What was the first song you learned on bass?

  1. I think mine was either Enter Sandman or Message in a bottle.
  2. Seven Nation Army. Still love the line, and it's stuck in my head so much from learning it early that I often checks how my A is tuned by playing it and tuning the other strings from there instead of high to low like most.
