I just graduated to my first 5 string! I'm so excited. Now that I have access to another string, what songs would be good to learn?

This thread from a while back is full of bands that use 5-strings. Check it out.

Ah beat me to it!. That topic will be of help.

Personally I recommend two things. Try some Dream Theater, and make your own works up.

Why don't they just send 4chan to Iraq if they're so good at these so called "raids"?

I once got hit by a flying wig. Either it was a wig or someone was headbanging far too hard.
Same here. One thing that I've been having fun with is transposing songs that are normally in Drop D or Drop C, and being able to play them on my 5 String(Tuned BEADG) by utilizing the B string.
Palmer 4-String Electric
Palmer 4-String Acoustic
Orange Terror Bass 500 head
Orange OBC115 cab
M-Audio KeyRig 49
when ever I get my hands on a five string I like playing 4 string songs transposed for the five. Like insteadf of playing arpegios off of the 3 fret on the E I play them on the 8th fret of the B. Or I noodle around in the minor pentatonic

Try "Phobophile" or "Slit Your Guts" by Cryptopsy. IIRC, they're in B standard tuning.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.
