Greatest Rock Instrumentals of all time


Recommended Posts

Okay you bunch of opinionated gibby lovers out there, let's see what kind of discussion we can get on this subject. We should get a lot of different stuff because of all of the generations represented on the forum.


Tough choice for me, as I love the song Hideaway as performed by many people but I'm going to have to go with Samba Pa Ti by Carlos Santana. When I first saw Santana he played this song on my favorite combination, a Gibson SG and Boogie amps. Santana can really make a guitar sing.

There are so many that come to mind like:


Hideaway - Freddie King

Hideaway - Bluesbreakers (Clapton)

Grazockstahagen - the Wildcats (hunted for a long time to find this one)

Walk Don't Run - the Ventures

Byrdland - Weather Report version

In the Slot - Tower of Power

40 Miles of Bad Road - Duane Eddy


are some of them.

Anyone ever play the games Red Alert 2 or Descent 1 and 2? Those games had excellent instrumental rock/metal/techno soundtracks to them. I don't know who did the RA2 soundtrack, but the Descent 1 music was by a band called In'Sanity. The D2 soundtrack was by a few artists, including Ogre, Type O Negative, Mark Morgan, and others. Besides those, my favorite instrumental is probably Fire on High by ELO.
