    Yep, Dire Straits has multiple examples: Sultans Of Swing, and many songs from their first album (Southbound Again, Down To The Waterline, Lions, etc.). Also, Once Upon A Time In The West from their next album (Communique) is a good example.

    Also, Lynyrd Skynyrd: Sweet Home Alabama.

    Yeah, first song that came to mind was Sultans, and Sweet Home Alabama.

    Other notable efforts:

    Damn Right, I've Got The Blues - Buddy Guy

    Hey Nineteen - Steely Dan

    Vultures - John Mayer

    I can’t stand Lynyrd Skynyrd. I think they’re really contrived and I’m just not a fan.

    I don’t care if you like them and don’t hate the guys out there playing in that band, but it’s literally a dread for me to listen to.

    I get the sense you don't care for LS. Call it a hunch.

    They even tell you to "Turn it off" in the opening of Sweet Home Alabama.

    that says it all.

    LOL

    Yeah, I think that's just it... I'm 38 and by the time I was getting seriously into music in the very early 90's that song had already been played out for me.

    I think that I am getting the hang of this...how about Van Hagar’s, uh sorry, I mean Van Halen with Sammy Hagar’s, ‘Finish what ya start’d?’

    And further, could we then define ‘quack,’ as a unique clear tone, can be kind of percussive, neck pick-up, trebly sound-ish often associated with Fender guitars?
