hey people i am about to go on a 14 hour car ride and was wondering what 3 CD"s you would most recommend in the vein of satriani, vai, paul gilbert, buckethead, and mainly other instrumental rock guitarists?
Well they aren't "rock guitarists" but you could check out Rodrigo y Gabriella, classical guitarists who play beautiful instrumental music.

Another band you could check out is Explosions in the Sky, post-rock instrumental music which is amazingly atmospheric. Check out the album "How Strange, Innocence" or "The Earth is not a Cold Dead Place.
I wholeheartedly support the above post

also check out, Mattias IA Eklundh and his band Freak Kitchen, his truely a freak on guitar
go try the Raconteurs new album it is pretty good.

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?

I met Sonic Youth on June 30th, and Mars Volta on Oct 20th.
