Challenging to you is....? What is your current level (Some of the songs you can play now... do you walk, slap, tap?)

If ya wanna slap:

Check out some Marcus Miller or Victor Wooten (Which I'm sure if you have been looking for a challenge, you should know at least one of these guys). Rob Anderson has some nice solo stuff.

I'm not sure what you consider challenging, but I had a lot of fun learning "Peruvian Skies" by Dream Theater. (Ulike many other DT songs, this only requires 4 strings).

Peace Sells by Megadeth. The intro sounds awesome.

any dream theater is challenging and fun. and he plays stuff for all levels. 'the answer lies within' can be fun for someone whos just getting past beginner, then 'the root of all evil' for someone whos getting quite good, after that you want to learn 'home' which has some pretty hard bits in it and after that you move onto the holy grail...'the dance of eternity' =)

Thats a cool song. It's actually the first bass solo I ever learned. Remember guys, it was played with a pick, so don't kill yourself learning it with your fingers like I did......unless you want to.

lol i hardly consider that a solo, its pretty much the verse riff
