    You're in the ballpark. This artist was on the same record label as the Jackson 5.

    Stevie Wonder - Sir Duke?

    Really not that easy to play on a guitar, but you made it look easy man.

    Sir Duke was my next guess, but I wasn't quite sure of it, just that it was the next thing hanging in my head.

    ^^^ Loverboy - Working For the Weekend.

    Here's my last contribution.. another '70s tune.. from the same guitar player in another post in this thread, but in a different band with a different singer:

    It must be Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin but I can´t remember the name of the song - oh well, I am getting old.

    Don't think that's LZ...it's familiar but I can't place it. Damn, I suck at this.

    Here's a short one. I believe this is actually finger-picked but I'm flat picking it here.

    Beautiful picking Mouse!
    Don't quite recognize it but it sounds like something from Radiohead... although it does also sound like Metallica's Bleeding Me.
