i'd recommend learning bass first... but that's only from what i know... i've played guitar for about 7 years and now that i've started learning bass i'm finding it a bit less interesting, and i'm guessing that if i learnt bass first i'd have lots more fun learning guitar later

The main reason I wanted simple songs was 'cos I play the guitar and most of my songs are 4 chord songs, and I wanted to play along to them without sounding like I was just playing the root note of each chord.
