    I agree. Sting is a good influence in the beginning. His bass lines are cool, but not too difficult to master. My first band used to cover Roxanne, Message In A Bottle, Walking On The Moon, and others. Sting is a great one to learn with. Also, not many people would use this guy was an influence, but try Roger Water from Pink Floyd. He had some groovy bass lines (i.e. Money and Breathe). Roger can be a great influence if you ask me. Try him, then Sting. Later, Try some Geddy Lee.
