    I've never played a bass, I play the guitar. But I'd think something from early AC/DC albums like "Livewire" or "Go Down" would be really easy.

    Hey dude, I too play bass (and I speak Hebrew as well). For songs to start with, really anything goes. Just think of a song you like that's relatively slow and go for some tabs. PM me if you feel like it.

    Since you starting off and an Anthrax fan I suggest practice your picking or finger playing with a song like Got the Time. Once you have that down try the bass solo. If you cant do it no big deal just play the rythem.

    I'm a bassist and the solo in Got The Time really isn't bad. The rest of the song takes more practice!

    I am bass and guitar player. As far as what to learn--that really depends on your style, first thing I learned to play on bass was Orion(Metallica) or was it Peace Sells(Megadeth)

    Man I must be friggin old, the first song I learned to play on Bass was "Proud Mary" by CCR :ill:
    I would say no matter what style of music your into always branch out to other stuff. It will only make you a better player in the end.

    Suggestions:
    Parliment (Boosty Collins)
    Weather Report (Jaco Pastorius):worship:
    Gov't Mule (Allen Woody)
    The Who (John Entwistle)

    I could go on and on (I usually do)...................I was always interested more in who influenced my Favorite Bass Players as that gave me more of a look at how they developed their style.

    out,
