I finally learned the main riff to Hysteria and I want to learn another song like it

#1
I know learning Hysteria isn't that hard but for someone new like me it is. I have tried on and off for months now but yesterday I really put some time into playing my bass and I got it down. I liked how it helped me in both my speed, fret work, and timing.

Is there any other similar riffs or a riff I could learn that will help me improve those areas?

You could just try some improv and then you can create your own riffs to be part of your practice regime. Even changing a few notes from hysteria will give you a bit of inspiration and will help increase your speed, timing and fretting.

Sliver by Nirvana. It's a pretty cool bass line. Nirvana has a lot of good bass stuff

People are going to say "thats too advanced" but in all honesty, it isnt too bad.

The main guitar riff to Strength of the World by Avenged Sevenfold is slightly mimicked on the bass but not quite, try that.

And...

The Crowing by Coheed and Cambria (because everyone should learn that song).

If you mean another open-string lick, go for Slither by Velvet Revolver, its much easier, but sounds cool.

Lots of metal songs have fast, accurate parts:

"Symbolic"
"Crystal Mountain"
"Spirit Crusher" by Death (All their songs are good but here's a starting point)

"Hammer Smashed Face" by Cannibal Corpse

"Holy Wars..." by Megadeth

"Battery"
"Master of Puppets" by Metallica

"Cowboys from Hell" by Pantera

"Number of the Beast"
"Hallowed be Thy Name"
"Aces High" by Iron Maiden (All their songs are good but here's a starting point)

I'd recommend Laid to Rest by Lamb of God. It's fairly fast so it requires some finger speed and it's quite tricky on the ol' fretting hand too. Perfect combination.

I'm learning it at the mo.

I found RATM songs brilliant for starting, as they are simple, repatative but far more than root bashing.
