guitar songs without lyrics

There is a ton of amazing rock guitar instrumentals I can think of, but my personal favorites for the best are as follows (when I say rock, I do not mean just hard rock and heavy metal instrumentals, but also those by musicians who pioneer the instrumental rock genre such as The Shadows and Chet Atkins):

Always With Me, Always With You – Joe Satriani

Apache – The Shadows

Bijou Pleasurette – Michael Schenker Group

Black Star – Yngwie Malmsteen (Say what you want about him, but during his heyday the man can really, really rip the hell out of that instrument, coupled with not only amazing speed playing but also an impeccable vibrato)

Boogie Funk – Freddie King

Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers – Jeff Beck

Cliffs Of Dover – Eric Johnson

Eruption – Van Halen (One of the first instrumentals that triggered the shred movement)

Europa – Santana (To me, this is instrumental rock at its finest – so much passion and expression in that playing that cannot be described in words)

For The Love Of God – Steve Vai

Green Onions – Booker T. & The M.G.’s

The Loner – Gary Moore

Hawaii Five-O – The Ventures

Hideaway – Freddie King

Jessica – The Allman Brothers Band

Lenny – Stevie Ray Vaughan

Little Wing – Stevie Ray Vaughan (The greatest cover of Hendrix ever)

Maggot Brain – Funkadelic

Misirlou – Dick Dale

Mr. Sandman – Chet Atkins (To me, he is one of the greatest guitar players to have ever lived)

Race With The Devil On A Spanish Highway – Al Di Meola (Sure this is more of a jazz fusion piece than a full-on rock instrumental, but in my opinion this track has quite a decent amount of rock flamboyancy in it and should be included)

Rude Mood – Stevie Ray Vaughan

Samba Pa Ti – Santana

Scuttle Buttin’ – Stevie Ray Vaughan

Sleep Walk – Santo & Johnny Farina

The Supernatural – John Mayall with Peter Green (The song that made me believe that Peter Green is certainly one of the best guitar players ever)

Testify – Stevie Ray Vaughan (The Isley Brothers cover)

Touissaint L’Overture – Santana

Wham – Lonnie Mack

Where Were You – Jeff Beck

YYZ – Rush

Zap – Eric Johnson
