The problem that most beginners on the bass guitar have is that transitioning from novice to being able to play their favourite songs can take a long time. In this post, I’m going to solve this problem by providing a list of rock songs for bass guitar that are:
This list represents years of teaching simple songs that are fun and easy to play while also being recognizable to the average listener. Many band members, including Mark from Observe Effect band, started by learning these simple songs. I’ve avoided the temptation to list a load of obscure blues and folk tunes that are easy but unknown to most people.
The songs are presented in alphabetical order by the artist name and are all ones that have been requested by former students at one time or another, and scribbled in my manuscript book.
That being said, have fun and happy learning. Make sure your roommate has the best ear plugs for sleeping if you will be practicing some of the songs in the dorm room.
