Music Fleeting Thoughts

Recently I noticed a few songs, that really reminded of an artist other than the one actually performing it. I'm bad at explaining, so I'll cut to the chase right away:
  • Jethro Tull - Rocks on the Road might as well be written by Mark Knopfler. I've seen the whole album being compared to Dire Straits (similarly to Crest of a Knave) so that's hardly anything new. Still, this song made me pause it once to think about what makes it sound so much more like Dire Straits than Jethro Tull.
  • Bryan Adams - Don't Even Try sounds like a Beatles song to me (and my mother), mostly like those on the Red Album. The voice would give this one away though.
I know there are thousands of these out there, but I still find this neat.

I'm calling this "Fleeting thoughts", because this doesn't really need its own thread but it also doesn't seem to fit elsewhere. Hope it's okay with everyone...

Why does every video on how to play bar-chords have some dude with fucking MASSIVE hands telling me that you don't need big hands or long fingers to play bar chords?

Bar chords are bullshit. Noone is able to hold down six steel guitar strings with only their index finger.
