Easy Tool/A Perfect Circle Song?

I've been playing for about a year, and I'm just starting to really get into Tool and A Perfect Circle. Just wondering what some good songs to start with would be cuz the style is kinda weird to me on some of them. Thanks =)

46 and 2 was the first song I learned. It's really easy, and really fun.

Lateralus!

Most Tool songs are pretty easy, if you've been playing for a year they shouldn't really be a challenge. Just make sure you are getting the rhythms rhythms right as they can feel very odd to play.

Of course, learning and writing a song are very different things. To write these songs takes someone very special!

Jambi isn't too hard either. Just the rhythm is a little hard to memorize.

"Schism." I didn't have difficulty with it at all.

EDIT: But, since you say you can play it, try Lateralus.

"The Hollow" by A Perfect Cirlce. I've only been playing for about a year and I learned it a couple days ago. The tab looks difficult but you'll get the hang of it after reading through it with the song playing so you know the rhythm. It's fairly simple. "The Outsider" is another good one to learn.

I go with those that say Judith. Three Libras is easier than it looks too.

when it comes to apc, get the tuning right. 1 and a half steps down(c#). its been a commitment for me cause my band is covering "judith". "the package" is an easy one too. the tool songs ive checked out are easy (even though tuning back up to drop d is risky, unless you keep spare strings handy) but "the pot" is fun. sooo, you cant go wrong either way... lots o' fun
