Sweet Lorraine - Uriah Heep

Whipping Post - Allman Bros.

Highway Star- Deep Purple

Josie - Steely Dan

Soul Sacrifice - Santana

Proud Mary - Creedence Clearwater Revival

Purple Haze - Jimmy Hendrix

Couldnt Stand The Weather - Stevie Ray Vaughan

Abe ... Rare Earth! Wow, that takes me back.

The only ones in that list that fit my "rock out" definition are Foot Stompin' Music (love thos rock star shiny flares haha), Highway Star, Soul Sacrifice, Purple Haze and Couldn't Stand The Weather.

Yep, I meant rock songs but some fusion would fit the bill ... in my books :) ... starts with some of the best spooky chords ever, and it's rockin' when Johnny starts carving it up at around 1:30.

Also Billy Cobham's Stratus.

Larry Carlton goes right off in his solo during Point It Up
