So, we all know one can get deep with lyrics. So is there a guitar instrumental that goes deep with you, a song where you don't need lyrics to understand what is happening? Or an instrumental that takes you to a special place? My personal favorite is from a recent Michael Landau disc ( Organic Instrumentals ) called " Big Sur Howl. " It's a tune that takes me to the beach at night. I can't ever get sick of this song.

Classical Gas: Mason Williams
Penny For Your Thoughts: Peter Frampton

Two different periods, two different styles, both very emotive, one of hope for the future and the other pure joy of being alive.

R Hart says:
Black Mountain Side from Led Zeppelin is a favourite, especially how it contrasts with the following song Communication Breakdown. Obvious choice I know, but it comes to mind.

Another obvious one from classical music: the guitar solos in Rodrigo's Concierto Aranjuez

Black Sabbath's "Laguna Sunrise" was a pleasant surprise when released. And R Hart, I completely agree with you re: Rodrigo's Concierto. A classical masterpiece. And if you ever have a chance to hear a recording of Liona Boyd performing it, by all means do so.

One of the most beautiful instrumental songs ever been played, has been recorded by the guitarist Arlen Roth. Unfortunately almost nobody knows him. I am talking about his instrumental version of the classic "When a man loves A Woman". Arlen Roth used to be a columnist for the guitar player magazine in the 80ies. "Dizzy Fingers" by Chet Atkins is beautiful also, one of the greatest instrumental rock songs that hit me in the 80ies was "The Attitude Song" by Steve Vai from his "Flexable" album. One of the best newer instrumental rock albums is the fantastic "A Little Bit Of Big Bonanza" by the rock group "Bushman's Revenge" from Norway. Hendrix meets Bonamassa. Greetings

though a little goes a long way, I appreciate Blues Saraceno's "Girth" and Joe Satriani's "Surfing With The Alien". Ty Tabor's efforts in the bands Platypus, as well as Jelly Jam, are remarkable also.

Limiting myself to rock... King Crimson's "Red." Nice cello section in it, too.

Jeff Beck-"Cause We've Ended as Lovers." Off the album "Blow by Blow." I believe it was written by Stevie Wonder, I've never heard it with a vocal, but it is so incredible as an instrumental, Beck's playing is incredibly expressive, it has always touched me.
