Why don't you have a read of the FAQ at the top of the page? And no pics, no bass.

You could try The Trooper by Iron Maiden. If you're a Maiden fan you might as well start early on the galloping. Enter Sandman is a good song to start with on bass for Metallica fans.

Haha. I was kidding, as OP asked for Maiden/Metallica suggestions and that guy said Iron Man. I know it's a Zeppelin song not Maiden/Metallica.

I am not familiar with this Sabath band. Is it Satyr and Abbath in a side project?.....With only two guitarist/vocalists....Black Metal a cappella.

I loved the Soulja Boy cover, Janet Jacksons steel drum solo really makes the song.

Sigged! anyway, I seem to be the only one who has realized how fast this thread is going to s***. TS, get the hell out of here while you still can. Remember, there are very few easy Maiden songs. The trooper isn't a bad place to start, though. Another good song to learn is For Whom The Bell Tolls. It's pretty easy, even the solo in the beginning.
