I have been playing for a week and I consider myself decent. My best songs are probably money by pink floyd and spiders by System of a Down. Any other good beginner songs?

Also, anyone know a good free bass tuner online? Thanks.

check out a song called donna lee by jaco pastorius. really great beginner line..

welcome to the site, and welcome to bass. and no offence, but you're not decent if you've been playing a week. trust me.

Well I've been playing for 4-5 months now. I found "My Michelle" by Guns N' Roses easy for me, it's not too fast or slow.

As for tuners, not sure but gutiar pro has a bass tuner.

I'm trying to think what I played when I first started, Anything Blink 182, or most of Green Day's newer stuff, if you want something a bit more popular amongst bassists try 'Sunshine of your Love' by Cream, very easy but cool.
Welcome to bass and the forums. We're a decent lot here
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

^Yep, like she said. A decent lot lol, God I don't know why but I love the accents of English people, like seriously. I can just gawk at the grammar and pronunciation differences all day. I want to marry an English girl to gawk at the accent and cultural differences.


Sorry, I'm just bored here in Illinois, the land of a guy that was born in Kentucky.


I advise the song Louie Louie, very easy and familiar. Also usually pop punk in general, like sum 41.

Most System of a Down songs are easy and fun to play. Some might challenge who but a challenge can only make you better.

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

AC/DC and Black Sabbath have pretty simple lines a lot of the time (except for NIB).
Paul McCartney has a lot of simple but effective lines.
