metachat music heads come in here and tell me of some good instrumental guitar albums[More:]

so far I like John 5 & Paul Gilbert's work..
Anything by Japancakes, especially If I Could See Dallas. It has the song "Vocode-Inn," which is awesome.

From a ways back...favorite song by Joe Satriani: Speed of Light, from 'Time Machine'

Hadn't heard Paul Gilbert before. Pretty neat...spacesuits don't make bad stage clothes!

These are the high profile musicians.

Modern: Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson

Surf: Surfaris, Dick Dale, The Ventures

60s British: The Shadows

League of his own: Jeff Beck

Independents number well over a hundred. My favorites are the Mermen.

I was just listening to Bruce Kaphan's most recent album, Hybrid. Really gorgeous stuff - it's mellow and melodic pedal steel guitar with none of the hokey C&W overtones. (Kaphan was in the fantastic American Music Club for many years and has since put out a handful of solo discs.)

My all-time favorite instrumental album is Chet Atkins Picks on the Beatles.

Especially Buchanan's "The Messiah Will Come Again," I've put that song on bar jukeboxes and had it quiet the whole place and send people up to me asking "What was that, man?" several times.

Firas. . not that it is in the league with anything mentioned above, but here's a track by me as a token in recognition for a great thread.

Oops, that was supposed to go in the Decemberists/Grateful Dead post. Birdman and Wayne do not record instrumental guitar music.

But perhaps you'd enjoy Burgundy Grapes.
