I would recommend the "Complete Mercury Recordings" if you can find it. It has some of the most basic songs on it and it won't take long to get the feel for what they are doing.

Bluegrass bass is essentially 1-3 (the mando chops fall on the 2/4) with a two-step feel. Walkups connect the chords, and usually the songs are in G to accommodate the banjo's tuning and to allow the guitarist to do the Flatt Run.

You'll find exceptions, but this will get you started.

I mentioned in my previous post " get familiar with the major pentatonic scale". Well, the reason for that is, I play a lot of walking bass lines when our band does Bluegrass.. and Bluegrassy Gospel tunes. It is also a very useful scale for a lot of different musical styles. Learning it is worth the time spent!! 8) Have fun!!

Get a bass fiddle if you can. The transistion from bass guitar to upright is worth the effort.

As tele and tim have said it can be a bit boring but just put yourself in a bluegrass frame of mind and thump along. It's easy and fun!!

Just to add to what telemonkey said. Get real familiar with the major pentatonic scale, especially in the key of G. You don't have to remember any note by name, just the 1-4-5 positions.

In bluegrass bass playing, less is more, and timing is everything!! Lots of fun, but after a while, it gets a little boring, for me at least. Great training for timing and tempo!
