The Contenders

11 Misirlou - Dick Dale & His Del-Tones Misirlou - Dick Dale & His Del-Tones

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

12 Miles of Machines - Jeff Loomis Miles of Machines - Jeff Loomis
13 The Extremist - Joe Satriani The Extremist - Joe Satriani
14 Apache - The Shadows Apache - The Shadows
15 Machine Gun - Jimi Hendrix Machine Gun - Jimi Hendrix

This song does have vocals, therefore, it is not an instrumental song. - ameentheguitarist23

16 Classical Gas - Mason Williams Classical Gas - Mason Williams

Acoustic guitar no less!

17 Leyenda - Andres Segovia Leyenda - Andres Segovia

Better than Hendrix, better than Clapton, and both of them would quickly agree; this guy essentially invented guitar virtuosity.

So expressive, you can almost feel the ocean waves breaking over your head.

19 Walk Don't Run - The Ventures Walk Don't Run - The Ventures
