    Amber and Love Song are pretty easy.

    Hey man, I just answered the question haha. Honestly, most of the non-slap stuff isn't too hard. DToM as a whole is pretty easy. Most of the hits are pretty easy to play, minus maybe Come Original. Are there specific songs you're looking to play?

    Hey brother,

    I really appreciate all your input. I've been playing a year and would just love to learn some 311 tunes... I'm really into the slow grooves..

    I've mastered Amber
    Part of Down

    I'm thinking Whiskey and Wine is pretty therapeutic..

    I welcome all your input !

    Cheers!

    Slow grooves? Alright, let me think. Sand Dollars should be pretty easy. Purpose isn't too bad. Taiyed is a little harder, but once you get it down, it's tons of fun to play. Prisoner is fun. Revelation of the Year and Nix Hex are fairly similar, and add Welcome to that list. That's probably a good start that isn't too hard for a beginner. Look online for tabs of course, there's tons of them around. Best of luck and enjoy, bud.

    For a someone just barely starting?

    Use of Time
    Light Years
    Stealing Happy Hours
    Freeze Time
    Flowing
    Still Dreaming
    Mix It Up
    Revelation of the Year

    ... mid tempos. Not too crazy rhythms. Pretty straight forward songs.

    I would say:

    Time Bomb
    Beautiful Disaster
    Prisoner

    When you get into slap bass, the easiest ones for me to learn were:

    Come Original
    What Was I Thinking
    Don't Dwell (surprisingly easy)
