Insturmental rock songs

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I am trying to create a huge playlist of insturmental rock songs. I have a few rules to my list.

1) No more Allman Brothers becuase i already have a lot from them
2) nothing too head-banging. I have a few harder ones (YYZ) but i prefer smoothing sounds

Here is my current list (in no particular order)

1. Flying - Beatles
2. Jessica - Allman Brothers
3. True Gravity - Allman Brothers
4. Fire on High - ELO (see me sig)
5. Classical Gas - Manson Williams
6. High Falls - Allman Brothers
7. YYZ - Rush (a bit too hard sounding for my taste but i like this one)
8. Marooned - Pink Floyd
9. Now I've Got a Witness - Rolling Stones
10. Soul Sacrifice - Santana
11. Popcorn - Hot Butter (a but too techno sounding but not too bad)

Does anybody else have any suggestions?

Thanks

Are you just looking for artists that don't usually do instrumentals (as your list suggests)?

If not, what about Dick Dale? Ventures? Awesome stuff.

Or the more modern bands like Tortoise, Explosions In The Sky, maybe even From Monument To Masses.

My all-time favourite instrumental album is The Dust Brother's 'Fight Club' Soundtrack. It's truly amazing.

"Hells Kitchen" by Dream Theater. They are responsible for quite a few very well arranged rock instrumentals (a la YYZ), but many of them are harder than you might like. You can listen to all of them, as far as I know, through iTunes.

Also, there's "the Clap" from The Yes Album and then if you can find a Steve Howe album called Turbulence it's all instrumental -- and fairly good.

I was gonna suggest that, too. So instead I'll suggest...

"A Falling Down Billy Brown" by Vincent Gallo (Buffalo 66 soundtrack)

"Instrumental" by Doug Martsch (self-titled)

[Untitled Track] #1 by Minus the Bear (This is What I Know About Being Gigantic)

And anything by Godspeed You Black Emperor!, Mogwai, Maserati, or The Album Leaf.
