Best Modern Instrumental ArtistsJust forget the singers. Give the instruments a little credit for once! No bands with singers on this list.
The Top Ten
Their guitarist has a very modern, metal and tech-core influenced guitar technique and songwritting book out now, and the scale I'm struggling with is but a measure or two from a single song of their many. I like HEAVY progressive music, and my DAD likes Scale The Summit. My friend calls them Guitar-lesson-rock.
We are witnessing the evolution of music right before our eyes and ears. But for those with ears who cannot hear, it will seem like they came out of no where when they finally reach the summit of their talents.
The Great Plains and Age of The Tide are two of the best songs I've heard in my life. These guys make me proud to be a part of my generation. Thank you for inspiring all of us.
Glacial Planet, City in the Sky & Giants are all amazing pieces of music. Very cool approach to music and original. Look forward to their new albumV 16 Comments
Its Hans Zimmerman! Dude's a legend.
When I want inspiration through music, Hans Zimmer is my go to.
Are you ' kidding me? The awesome masterpieces of Hans Zimmer easily makes him a legend...he should be in top ten - Bingofoster
Naruto Soundtrack can alone prove this guys one of the Best
Naruto Sountrack...enough said, his music is absolutley amazing!
This is the most talented composer on the list. Anyone who think David Guetta is better is a fool who knows nothing of true music. He composes trash-pop music. Also, you are an idiot for placing Danny Elfman so high above Hans Zimmer. The top three of this list should be:
1. Two Steps from Hell.
2. Hans Zimmer.
3. Danny Elfman.
Two Steps from Hell should really be top of the list. Have you lot heard their stuff? They wipe the fllor with David Guetta the trash-pop artist that's for sure.
Pretty much dream theater minus james. Paradigm Shift and Acid Rain are unbeatable. Best instrumentalists.
These guys, even if you care not for the songs they write, you must give it up to them for sheer ingenuity and ability. There's no comparison.
Liquid tension experiment should be at 1.
Excellent musician with natural talent.
No copy cats and really a wonderful music composer either its Indian or Western.
The reliability is perennial.
Its true..he is legend
Her style is so unique and every song consistently delivers a unique, fast paced, modern excellence of violin art
Absolutely the most creative of the entire group. Shame the piano guys play nothing but covers or they might be on this list.
Her style is so unique and something she had to develop herself. She brought new meanings to playing violin.
Where is the piano guys! Sure, she's cute, and ok, but piano guys are way better!
He can every sound imaginable. his songs are so addicting...
Louis Colaiannia is an amazing artist/ composer. Is a joy being able to listen to his music and always exciting to see what he comes up with next!
If you get the chance to see this guy perform live don't pass it up! Brilliant compositions and wonderful energy. If you haven't listened to his music you're simply missing out.
Music with passion and integrity... Louis is one of the most gifted, yet most humble musicians I have ever met. He is graced with strength and passion! His music is very inspiring to me!
Awesome singer and musicianV 6 Comments
He should be higher up on the list. Buckethead is an amazing, versatile musician.
This guy is one badass guitarist! He's covered so many different songs, including Christmas music, and he does it so well. I dig his cover for "You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch". That one's addicting. You have to be crazy not to think he's awesome! He can really play a guitar!
Gary improves every single song he covers. indescribably great.
Neither modern, nor very much of instrumental. - zxm
elfman has always brought something new and never copied himself. a true genius of what is defined as "music"
The kings of the modern day post rock and instrumental rock scene. - InsertNameHere
Liquid Tension Experiment beat these guys? Really?
Eric Clapton, Santana, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck are classes apart.
Hey! He's king of electrinic! His sound makes me come several times at once!
Have you seen David Arkenstone's Symphonic Adventure?!
They should not be on this list since all they play is covers. This list should be exclusively for content creators.
Yay! I was afraid this would not be on here. Sure it's low, but we'll take what we can get.
The piano guys bring a very versatile style to the instumental industry by performing famous pop songs and some older more sacred songs.
They have good music. My favorite is Final Hour, and they deserved to be recognized more often.
My favorite one is Final Hour. Many of their music pieces were used for movie trailers.
Amazing artists! Have great original songs! Favorites are: Unsafe Haven and Heart's Harmony!
