@Ionus,
Even Mark Knopfler is getting up to become another fossil guitar player. Guess who this one is about?
Theres another thread about guessing historical references in songs

Grand Funk Railroad was on of the three-man power bands of the 1960s-70s. This song from 1970 was one of their biggest hits. Lead and acoustic guitar are by Mark Farner (in this performance he does not switch to the acoustic guitar), with a lead bass guitar passage from Mel Schacher. The live performance was in 1971.

@farmerman,
We Are Sailing To Philadelphia
A World Away From The Coaly Tyne
Sailing To Philadelphia
To Draw The Line
The Mason-Dixon Line

If I got the chorus right, they are british (The Coaly Tyne) and are drawing the Mason-Dixon line (Surveyors ?) One seems to be a navigator (supposed to be a baker), I forget which one, and the other is a surveyor (he did Durham and Northumberland) and is a playboy .

@Ionus,
Two of my fvorite guitar intros are this one and Sweet Home Alabama. Knopfler has fucked around with this pice,(inviting S singers like Stink and Phil Collins to play and screw up the simple notes and beat of this classic that I hadda dig back for the original MTV video of (probably 1977)
Even the video is rally dated (like a Super Mario game)

Isaac Albéniz wrote his "Leyenda" for piano in 1892, the first of a three part suite. In about 1910 or -11, a German publisher put out this first part alone, scored for guitar, as "Asturias." In fact, the music is characteristic of Andalusian flamenco, rather than Asturian. Here it is performed by the Australian guitarist John Williams.

Now for some comic relief--i posted this in my Singy Girls thread. Shonen Knife, arguably the worst girl band ever, is a garage-punk band--they have a loyal world-wide fan bass, and were praised by Sonic Youth and Nirvana. Here they play "On top of the World," their contribution to the 1994 Carpenters tribute album, If I Were a Carpenter. Lead guitar is by Naoko Yamano. I put this in the "watching a train wreck" category.

@farmerman,
Sad It wont play due to copyright issues with my country . For anyone else in the same boat, here is Sweet Home Alabama by LYNYRD SKYNYRD . It was written in response to a Neil Young song claiming they were all racists in Alabama . Neil later rang and apologised and said they were right to react that way . Can you hear the references in the song ?

@Ionus,
You got Skynyrd ok.(but it wasnt the original kynyrd) Was it the MTV you couldnt get? That version was the original. Knopfler made loads of version of "Money for nothin" with his UK buds, but I never liked em cause they were just "stuffing stars" into song cuts and a little bit of the stuff that made the song great is lost.

That intro in "Sweet Home..." Is the best!! .
