    I'm a bit of a prog fan but not a die-hard so I don't know much beyond King Crimson, ELP, Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd and Rush. I'm looking to expand my horizons so I'm seeking suggestions for great songs beyond these artists.

    Your suggestions are appreciated!

    to name a few perhaps less familiar to a casual prog fan.

    Happy exploring!

    Electric Light Orchestra! Is it prog enough? It has a standup electric bass ... How about Mr. Blue Sky!

    This one. Holdsworth's solo is ridiculously good.
