    Default Recommend some rock instrumentals?

    I'm thinking of putting together about 8-10 hours worth of rock instrumentals, to store on a memory card for looped or random playback (my version of elevator muzak ;o)) and wanted to get some suggestions on artist/songs, since that's a lot of space to fill.

    A few I've thought of off the top of my head:

    Joe Satriani--Always With Me, Always With You
    Eric Johnson --Cliffs of Dover
    Santana--I love you much too much
    Santana--Aqua marine
    Doobie Brothers--Steamer lane breakdown
    Jeff Beck--'Cause we've ended as lovers
    Rush--La villa strangiatto
    ELO--Fire on high
    Jessica--Allman Brothers
    Glad--Traffic
    Cruise Missile--Dixie Dregs
    Fanfare for the Common Man--Emerson, Lake & Palmer
    Pali Gap--Jimi Hendrix
    Peace in Mississippi--Jimi Hendrix

    and since I'll need a hundred songs or more to fill 10 hours, several from the same artist is not a problem.
    Please suggest some of your favorite rock instrumentals!

    Although I have forgotten the names, I used to love the surf rock instrumentals from the 60s by the Ventures and other groups.

    Who: Tommy - Overture and Underture (oh, that Pete was sooo clever in his younger days!); Quadrophenia - Quadrophenia and The Rock
    Pink Floyd - One of these Days, Great Gig in the Sky (well, almost sans vocals, in both cases)

    Would you count Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells?

    Not quite rock, but Bruce Cockburn's done a number of instrumentals over the years - two that come to mind: Deep Lake and Train in the Rain.

    Go deeper into Satriani and Beck. Plenty of good stuff there. One of my favs is "Come Dancing" from Beck.

    Thanks and keep 'em coming.
    Some of these have several versions.

    If you know the particular album the version you like is from (or a youtube link to it) that would be great.

    Jeff Beck's "Blow by Blow" it's all instrumental if my remaining brain cells are firing....

    H9: If you don't trust what you are hearing, then maybe you need to be less invested in a hobby which all the pleasure comes from listening to music.

    I think I'll try to limit it to no more than 5 or 6 from any one artist, but you're right and some of these guys like Jeff Beck, Satriani, Vai, Morse, Hendrix, etc have hours of instrumentals.

    For whatever reason I have a hard time remembering the names of instrumental songs.

    Does Gary Moore have some instrumentals? Steely Dan? I think they do but I can't recall the names of the songs, or if there were any good ones (a lot of instrumentals are pretty boring)

    Well - there are lots of really good songs that are mostly instrumentals but not totally (a stanza or two of lyrics built around a jam/instrumental).

    Like Steely Dan's "Your Gold Teeth" - mostly instrumental but some sung lyrics. It doesn't meet your criteria of purely 'instrumental' though.

    You've already listed the first tune that came to mind when I read the title of your thread (ELO - Fire on High), then of course: Edgar Winter - Frankenstein.
    How about The Alan Parsons Project- Sirius http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCR85u9QngQ
    or a little easier listening: David A. Stewart & Candy Dulfer - Lily Was Here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U15HQJwqsIo
    and : Candy Dulfer Pick Up the Pieces http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKtZXyH6cug

    Not instrumentals, but always good for a mellow mood:

    How about Steely Dan's version of East St. Louis Toodle-oo? :-P

    Any interest in almost-instrumentals? :-)

    Fleetwood Mac - World Turning
    The Who - My Generation from Live at Leeds

    Yeah, I know, I am clutching at straws now... I'll do some listening and thinking...

    EDIT: ooh, ooh, I do have two more suggestions...

    Yes (Steve Howe, more to the point) - The Clap and Mood for a Day
    (there are others from those frisky boys, but I'll stick with those two)

    EDIT^2: OK, I could've sworn I saw it in the earlier posts... but I just looked though & couldn't find it, so...

    Emerson Lake & Palmer (well... Keith Emerson) - Nutrocker :-)
