    Perhaps this has been done before...

    If you were to make a 15 song cd of the best songs that show off some amazing bass playing, what would you put on it?

    I've got a disc similar to what you're suggesting, but it's purpose is more for exercise than showing off amazing bass playing. It starts off with Parallel Universe by RHCP and then goes in a million different directions, from Cake to the Doors to Bob Marley to Zep to Metallica..... I'll list the specific tracks when I get home later, I don't remember them all off the top of my head.
