    I can't pick just one or two, since there are SO MANY fantastic instrumental pieces out there today. I'm a BIG fan of instrumental rock myself. Below is a list of some of my favorite instrumental tunes...

    - Always With Me, Always With You
    - Flying In A Blue Dream

    - Far Beyond The Sun
    - Black Star
    - Crying
    - Trilogy Suite OP.5

    By Steve Vai:

    - For The Love Of God
    - Sisters
    - Tender Surrender
    - There's A Fire In The House
    - Building The Church

    Oh, don't mention it, bassplaya. :)

    The Ventures are awesome! Speaking of surf music, Dick Dale is also a great surf guitarist.

    I just realized I forgot to include Joe Satriani's "Summer Song" on the list. That's like one of the Satch classics. Another fabulous player I forgot to mention is Jeff Beck. Pieces like "Where were you" and his version of "The Pump" are amazing. There's also Larry Carlton whose "Room 335" is considered to be one of the fusion masterpieces. Incidentally, Larry and Steve Lukather did a version of "The Pump" during their collaborative live event recorded in Japan, and both of their performances are quite fantastic.

    Well, some instrumental songs have subtle usage of vocals. Steve Vai's "Touching Tongues" or "Taurus Bulba" would be a good example, I'd say.

    ya i guess. god bless the children of the beast by motley crue would probly be considered an instrumental, even tho there is words, just chanting "god bless the children of the beast" over and over
