I think I'm posting in the wrong place but not sure where to post this. I' looking for tabs for playing scales. I want to learn to play each scale up and down the frets. Everywhere I look, I just see the tabs for the top frets such as C major with open stings for the top line. I want to be able to play all the way down to the body of the bass. Since I am so new to this, I don't know how to convert it down and back up.

I'd suggest it depends on what you want to play really. Simple songs like "Brain Stew/Hitching a ride" etc by Greenday can be fun to learn and play developing sense of timing and pace. Then progress to songs with more structure like "When I come around/ Welcome to Paridise" by Greenday add extra skills. Someone mentioned previously "Hysteria" by Muse, this is good to learn with the octaves and pace of the riffs, its a thumping bass driven song that offers a bass player different techniques. These are mostly punk/rock songs, there are challenges for bass players to learn songs by rancid, red hot chilli peppers and the living end.
