The Top Ten

For the Love of God - Steve Vai For the Love of God - Steve Vai Cover Art

This song is so many emotions at the same time. So powerful, so enlightening. I never get tired of hearing it.

Not only the best guitar instrumental, this has to be one of the best songs of all time

So much emotion and technical difficulty at the same time. Only steve can do that.

cool song

Eruption - Van Halen Eruption - Van Halen Cover Art

Its buckethead, listen to pike 65 if you have not as well, mind blown

No Song gives you the same vibes as Soothsayer does

Far better than everything else on this list!

Cliffs of Dover - Eric Johnson Cliffs of Dover - Eric Johnson Cover Art

I like melodic solos and this happens to be of of them... Better than most.

Masterpiece...

Voice of the Soul - Death Voice of the Soul - Death Cover Art

This should be in the top 5 at least.

The Contenders

Apache - The Shadows Apache - The Shadows Cover Art

Not quite the original version of the tune but the coolest. And the one that sold more Fenders in the UK than anything before or since

Like the best tunes...clean and simple...

The best Paul gilbert instrumental song with scarified...

My favorite instrumental

Classical Gas - Mason Williams Classical Gas - Mason Williams Cover Art

Acoustic guitar no less!

The Godfather Theme - Slash
Always With Me, Always With You - Joe Satriani Always With Me, Always With You - Joe Satriani Cover Art

This track should be higher than where it is now... This track simply floats you away to a peaceful Bliss

The Voice of Soul - Death The Voice of Soul - Death Cover Art

How come this isn't in the top 10?

Altitudes - Jason Becker Altitudes - Jason Becker Cover Art

This should already be number one. But he'd definitely be at the number one spot with an even stronger master piece if it weren't for ALS.

Listen to it if u haven't its one of best song with emotion that has no vocals!

Greatest music ever created

Funkadelic - Maggot Brain
Walk Don't Run - The Ventures Walk Don't Run - The Ventures Cover Art
Ocean - John Butler Ocean - John Butler Cover Art
The Journey - Tommy Emmanuel The Journey - Tommy Emmanuel Cover Art

Sheer awesomeness by the one and only Tommy Emmanuel. So melodic but it rocks!

So glad to see this on the list.

The Call of Ktulu - Metallica The Call of Ktulu - Metallica Cover Art

Such a great Metallica song, one of my favorites

Misirlou - Dick Dale & His Del-Tones Misirlou - Dick Dale & His Del-Tones Cover Art

It is the best of its kind... There is a voice of yelling... Other than that, it is fully instrumental and it should be at least in top 5 instead of 12...

Better known as the theme from Pulp Fiction

Forbidden City - Marty Friedman Forbidden City - Marty Friedman Cover Art
