Glad I stumbled upon this thread
I’ve been playing the guitar since I was about 12, and instrumental music has always been one of my favorite sorts, even before I ever touched a guitar. Still, a lot of the instrumentals I listen to tend to be guitar-oriented. I’m sure I could put together a more detailed list at another time, but here are a few artists and their songs that I love, and that some of you might like:
Erik Mongrain - A guitarist from Canada. When I first saw this video of him performing his song PercusienFa, it blew me away…I think in the distant past I may have shared it on this forum, too. And another favorite of mine from his repertoire is Fusions. Technically a much simpler song, but he gets a lovely beat and some really great chords out of his instrument here.
Steve Vai - What guitar player hasn’t been into Steve Vai’s music at some point?
This is one of my favorites, and I love this version. In fact, I like live music in general. It just has such a neat sound to it…I think it sounds more real somehow…more alive, than something that’s done in a studio. It’s the way music was meant to be experienced.
…I’m sure that I can find more than this, however, once I look through the playlist on my mp3 player
