go get some tabs of slayer songs on the internet. their stuff from the 1980's is a good place to start - simple, good thrash metal that is fast, but not too fast.

the first metal songs I started on were Dead Skin Mask (because it was one of the slower but thrashy Slayer songs) and Season in the Abyss (its a good practice song for an introduction to downpicking and builds up endurance if you are a novice at it).

Some of the modern death metal stuff requires such fast speed that it is really frustrating when you are getting started... So don't get too frustrated. start with the basics and keep pushing yourself.
