    What you would say are the most technically challengeing, nightmarish songs to play?

    "Clap Hands", by Tom Waits. Hell, anything off of the album "Swordfishtrombones" or 'Bone Machine'.

    Anything by the Steve Morse band, or the old Dixie Dregs stuff. The only SM song I've ever successfully been able to play is "heightened awareness" (dave larue, bass).
    All else is impossible for me to learn to play at all...

    +1 on the Larue stuff, that guy is WAY underrated IMO.

    Power by marcus miller. not necessarily the whole song, but the quick pull-offs.
