    The intro to Crazy On You has long been my favorite acoustic guitar riff. Rick may not have ranked it as his #1 pick, but I think it says something that it's the only one that he didn't even

    “From The Beginning” by Emerson Lake & Palmer would be a worthy addition to this list IMO 🙌🏼

  • StuaTagovailoa

    ‘Horse with no Name’ ‘Wonderwall’ and ‘Fade Into you’ are all simple but amazing acoustic intros. Great list btw

    I'd love to throw in the intro to "She Talks To Angels" by The Black Crowes. Hearing that part alone gives me goosebumps

    It is shocking to me that Lindsey Buckingham’s Never Going Back Again is not even on the list. Best, and probably one of the hardest guitar intros EVER played.

    My favorite thing about this dude is that he gets to the point and doesn’t have a bunch of crap fluff talk making the videos unnecessarily long. Good on ya

    Props to you for the talent tot put all these tunes together... particularly just killin' Roundabout. Awesome on a Saturday morning.

    "I've Just Seen a Face" by The Beatles is a very underrated masterpiece!

    Well done Rick! Great that you included no less than THREE Led Zeppelin classics. Almost 1/3 of their music was acoustic- arguably their best!

    Scarborough Fair is the most powerful memory trigger for me: Wet yellow leaves on a sidewalk when I was 8 years old. I didn’t know it then, but it was the first time I felt melancholy.

    Only just discovered these great videos. Very pleased that the Beatles feature in them, they can be sometimes dismissed as just a popular pop group but they were great musicians as well. Rolling Stones are a favourite so good that Angie made number 1!

    Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits has an absolutely phenomenal intro riff

  • Daithi O Donoghue

    What a joy it is to have stumbled across your channel. It still blows my mind that your primary instrument was the tall bass when you’re so so soooo good at the guitar and other instruments.

    No ventura highway? man those guys made the 12 string acoustic sound so melodic and beautiful...they are such unique soft rock stalwarths of a bygone era, you listen to that song and it's an immediate time warp in your mind of feathered hair, bell bottoms and musle cars and chevy vans.. just hearing those first few notes can stop me on my tracks to give it a proper listen.

    Robert Johnson’s Crossroad Blues, incredible intro and the launching pad for everything.

    Totally love this. You really nail them also. Great to know I've been getting almost every song wrong :-). One thing I would add: The acoustic version of Plush (Stone Temple Pilots). It's maybe not totally intuitive, but really was super, signature. As instantly recognizable as any of the great songs of that era!

    TY Rick. This episode has created a game to be played with my musically-inclined friends. “Name That Tune” incarnate. The requisite rule is: You cannot view the screen for “clues” (or the answer 😅). This has lead to an entire evening of enjoyment, as friends participate from around the 🌎. What a great way to connect you’ve created, SIR. 🎩off

    For a guy who claims he’s not a guitar player you sure are one hell of a guitar player. I could listen to your playing for hours.
