Easy Bass Songs for Beginners – Longview – Green Day

Easy Bass Songs for Beginners – Longview – Green Day --> The bass line opens this song and carries the sound throughout. Mike Dirnt (Green Day bassist) is one of my favorite bass players. He has the ability to take basic bass lines and construct them to make them fit and sound great. This song has its challenging parts, but with practice can be easy enough to learn for beginner bassists. A pick is used in this song, so this would be a good song to get some work with a pick. There are also a few bass chords in the song – nothing too difficult using the open D string with notes on the G string. So also a good song for getting some work playing chords.
