I just bought a bass, and I'm really looking forward to playing it

My question is now, what songs are fun and easy to learn. I've never played bass before, but i've been playing guitar for almost a year.
(If there's any, songs from Tool, Metallica & Nirvana would be prefered)

What would you recommend?

Thanks alot

People absolutely love to see horrible accidents and murders, as well as any sort of fighting really. Just look at the news. We wouldn't watch it if it was boring.

If youre willing to use a pick, sober by tool is fun.

Look up some Blues Brothers stuff. Duck Dunn has amazing basslines. And also look up some stuff by James Jamerson.

I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.

The thrill is gone by BB King is pretty damn easy but I always find it fun to play.

First bass song I learnt was (Pulling Teeth) Anaesthesia. I wouldn't recommend doing that.

I dont use a pick... but still fun none the less.

Alot of tool songs are fun. Schism is pretty easy once you get the parts down.

Another easy one is Killing in the name by Rage Against The Machine.

I can write a coherent tune ... But 3/4? I play rock, not polka.

Another One Bites the Dust is dang simple. So is pretty much anything by the Ramones.
