Okay so usually I stick to metal/rock guitar although I really like the jazzy mellow sound, and am always hearing things I like but im never sure who it is playing.
I prefer it to be instrumental but other than that, can anyone reccomend something similar to this kind of playing?

players who do chord/melody stuff like Joe Pass, Gene Bertoncini and similar guys would be a good start. Try pandora radio after that.

For mellow jazz that is still super-interesting and listenable (you have to be careful differentiating mellow and smooth) Bill Evans is the king

also - Lenny Breau has a cult following, he was brilliant, but sometimes hard to find. Listen to this though:

Jim Hall is the king of taste on guitar. Learn from him.

Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall, Pat Metheny.
