    Take away the obscure, utterly unmemorable fan boy, hair rock, heavy metal blandishment riffs and you have a top fifteen.

    I'd put "Fire & Rain" and "From The Beginning" over most of.... All of these. Haunt Me - Sade needs a listen too. Rocky Mountain High? Let's call it YOUR Top. Mine of course, is way different. Try Umphrey's McGee - Divisions.

    Nice video and I really enjoyed your playing. The "instantly recognizable" bit of the title is stretching it a bit though as I didn't know quite a few of them!

    At least he's not talking for 75% of the whole video like others. Just the content. Not bore your audience by talking 75% and playing 25%. Good job
