I never really worked on a ''solo'' so I thought it would be good for me to learn one
I wanted to know what are these easy, good-sounding solo bass parts to learn

Any idea?

Happy Birthday.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

If you're into classical music then there are endless violin and cello solos (the two solo instruments I personally gravitate towards) out there to choose from. The six suites for solo cello being the first one usually suggested as a starting point.
If you're more into jazz music, it would be worth your while to transcribe a solo by a horn player, probably starting off with something a little simpler like Miles Davis or Herbie Hancock style stuff.
If you're into rock... I don't know... play some pentatonic licks?

one of the first solos I learned was the horn solo in In The Aeroplane Over The Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel. I love playing a lot of that album on bass (really fuzzy bass). By learned, I mean I learned it by ear, it was fun.

if this is your first solo ever i wouldnt go after stone cold bush or maxwell murder. but theyre definitely pieces to aspire to =D

a simpler, but still cool-as-hell flea solo to learn would be the one he does on aeroplane.
the verse is just as fun to learn as well =)

It's fun to play with or without a pick and you can adjust the timing and effects and still maintain the integrity of the song but change up the sound a bit.

Yeah, I think it's great just to wing the timing - it seems to sound better in free time.
