This is a huge genre, so I'll be sure to miss some bands. To start with, I'm just going to post some of the bands that have highly rated albums on progarchives and rateyourmusic. If there are any that you feel deserve to be here, let me know and I'll update the list. If you have any suggestions on how to group things, they'd be appreciated. Also, if you update any progressive rock CDLC, it might make sense to link to this post so users can more easily find other prog rock that isn't on the front page.

I am new to creating customs and am currently working on some classic Joe Jackson songs from the late '70s. I would appreciate some feedback before submitting the customs to the database. I have finished the first one here: It's Different For Girls - DD Thanks
This topic is both for testing and discussing collaboration on both Parts of "Tubular Bells" by Mike Oldfield. I have now finished transcribing (the bass) and syncing "Part 1" and will try to get a test version done soon. Here is the GP file for anyone interested in working out the guitar parts: https://www.dropbox.com/s/33hq98nt017fpvm/Mike%20Oldfield%20-%20Tubular%20Bells%20%28Part%201%29.gpx?dl=0 Just let me know in the comments if you want to help out. Maybe some of you can work together and transcribe different parts of the track. I can also try my hand on some of the easier guitar sections. You'll definitely need some patience to work on this because time signatures are constantly shifting, different rhythm and melody patterns are overlapping and even though there's quite a bit of repetition in the individual themes, none of the 14 themes is ever repeated. The longest sections is the last one, by far, because it's slowly building and introducing different instruments that play the melody. There's a rhythmic pattern in that sections that kind of sounds like it also has bass but I'm not really sure; it might just be a guitar recorded at double speed or put through some effect. I opted for the easier bass line but I could transcribe that pattern as well and make a bonus arrangement, though the pattern fades out with time and it might sound strange to keep playing it and awkward to suddenly change it, so I don't know. I'll work on "Part 2" as soon as I'm happy with this one and it's ready for release. Help on "Part 2" would be great as well.
