My first thought on this topic was "Another One Bites the Dust" would be the Stairway equivalent..
it means that in 7/8 and 1/8 note gets a beat and there are 7 beats in a measure...
in 7/4 a quarter note gets a beat and there are 7 beats in a measure...
I fiddle then play Children of The Sea by Sabbath. Has a sweet and slow part and a fast nasty part.
"Money" is a pass if you are testing a Gibson Money Bass.
Dude, that is so true! There are times I just run a major scale for lack of anything else coming to mind
Geetarshopworker '11-16. Never heard Stairway once. Heard Blackbird a few too many times, Seven Nation a few hundred too many times, but never heard the same thing twice in the bass section.
Play Money and probably get indifference.
Play Teen town and probably get attention.
Play Yakety Sax and probably you'll get admiration.
I start with an adaptation of the guitarron part from Joe Walsh's "Life Of Illusion" I play it all over the neck as it can cross 4 strings, then some walking blues lines up and down the neck. I don't slap basses unless they've been bad.
I just count through the phrase to seven and note that you hit the one at the beginning of the phrase after a count of seven. Since I'm not reading it, I'm not really worried about whether the notes within those seven beats are doubled up or not. For me it's mainly a feel thing anyway.
My go-to is usually John Paul Jone's opening riff on "How Many More Times."
This was an interesting enough question that I went and looked in the P/V/G book I have for DSOTM. It shows 7/4 all the way through until it goes to the one measure of 6/4 for the last phrase at end of a verse ("Think I'll buy me a football team," e.g., with "team" hitting the downbeat of the return to 7), 4/4 for the middle solo section (of course), then back to the same 7/4 & 6/4 bit for the last verse, and 4/4 to the fade-out.
I've always counted the "7" sections in 7/4 as well, and it fit, so I never gave much other thought to it.
I really don't play any songs. I'm not there to impress anyone. I'm there to determine how well the bass plays, see if there are any dead spots on the fret-board, and listen to the tome. I play a lot of very common boiler plate riffs and runs. The closest I get to playing a song is the intro to Keep Playing That Rock and Role (Edgar Winters)
I like to do the outro on 'Jacob's Ladder' (the guitar and bass outro)
My guitar shop routine consists of a few snippets of Siberian Khatru interleaved with quiet, timid noodling.
In YOUR opinion. If you let people in that sort of situation walk all over you, I believe you will deserve what you get.

Money has always been my natural go to riff in any potential buy along with Fleetwood Mac The Chain.
My go-to riff has always been "Godzilla". So much so that my local music store probably hears it as I walk in the door..
My go to song is intension by tool lots of sliding and octaves and harmonics. Really puts your hand all over the place.
