In your opinion...I listened to "Surfing with the Alien" and was amazed. The "liquid Tension Experiment" album is good too. The Vinnie Moore album is pretty good too. Let me know about some others.

Gracias, mi amigos...

I like Buckethead's "Coma."

Could you guys specify electric, acoustic, classic, or combo for these (and the ones to follow). It might help people figure out if they want to check them out.

Don't know about best, but one of my favorites is Chris Poland's Return To Metallopolis. Think classic era Megadeth minus the vocals.

No doubt "Perpetual Burn" by jason becker. Musical n technical genious, although u cant get anywhere near a full appreciation of his musicial genious with this one neo-classical album (see Rassberry Jams and Perspective albums), this is his best work. He was lightyears ahead of the likes of Satch, Ygnwie n Vai! Fact

I've never heard anything i like better than Leo Kottke 6 and 12 String Guitar. If someone can point me other albums similar, would appreciate. Django Reinhardt is also great.

Surfing with the Alien got me into thinking that the guitar could run a song by itself... no question one of the best instrumental albums out there...

In terms of individual song, I really - for whatever reason - love Metallica's "Call of Ktulu". I just love the heaving riffing on that tune... I feel like I'm in a vortex.

I also love La Villa Strangiato by Rush.

I would recommend Jeff Beck's 'Wired' and 'Blow-by-Blow', but they were so often copied, somebody new to them would not realize how ground-breaking these albums were at their releases. They pretty much launched fusion. Instead, try his 'Who Else' collection of just a few years back. It's a mixture of blues and metal and some other things -- Beck never seems to worry about genre; He just plays. The man's virtuoso sense of touch and timing come through on various wild to delicate to haunting pieces that are somewhat derivative of older material, yet extremely enjoyable none-the-less.

Johnny A's 'Sometime Tuesday Morning' is a deceptively simple sounding venture into some really nice playing.

For you rockers out there, there's Gary Hoey. He puts on an awesome show.

Doesn't matter how often they are copied Wired and Blow by Blow are 2 ESSENTIAL instrumental albums.
For acoustic LAGQ (Los Angeles Guitar Quartet) an evening in Grenada or anything else by them will not disappoint you
