I'm a big fan of instrumentals by rock bands.

Stuff like Jade's Song (Badlands), Midsummer's Daydream and Fantasy Serenade by Rik Emmett of Triumph, Mood for a Day by Steve Howe, etc.

If you know of any other instrumentals you can recommend, please let me know.

Thanx in advance,

How to achieve Frank Zappa's guitar tone:
Quote by Thefallofman
Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.

I'm not sure if you can classify The Ventures as classic rock, but just about everything they did was an instrumental cover of a song, no lyrics at all.

Since you like Mood for a Day, conside Horizons by Steve Hackett.

Another favorite is Red by King Crimson. (If you want to hear a cover, search the riffs & recordings forums. Asomodai did a very good cover of it a while back).
