10 More Songs Great for Beginner Bass Players –> Our first set of “10 Songs Great for Beginner Bass Players” got a lot of positive response and feedback. So we decided to do a 2nd set. We hope you like it as much as the first – we’re already working on a 3rd set!
When you’re starting out as a beginner bassist, it’s important to devote part of your practice time to learning songs. In fact, learning to play songs can be one of the most fun and enjoyable parts of playing bass. As a beginner you should start with songs that are challenging but not too difficult to learn. Trying to learn songs that are more advanced than your skill level can be frustrating – which some times leads to giving up. Beginners should start with easier, simple bass lines and progress towards more intermediate and advanced songs as they become better at playing bass guitar.
Below is our list of “10 More Songs Great for Beginner Bass Players”. We chose these songs using the following criteria:
- They all have simple bass lines that are relatively easy to learn

- In this set we included a few songs that use the thump, slap, and pop technique. These songs are relatively easy that can give you great practice learning how to play slap bass
