Well, you could just omit the rhythm guitar, and play Orion, The Call of Ktulu, or To Live Is To Die by Metallica.

What he said. Also consider throwing in some SRV(He had some instrumental stuff), as well Eric Johnson I believe plays in a trio, and has a lot of instrumental output.

Arrange the organ part for guitar and do a crazy "shred" version of "Foreplay" by Boston.

I would seriously like to hear someone do that. It would be epic.

Paul Gilbert's version of Scarified. Maybe Curse of Castle Dragon as well?


HELL YES!! Scarified would be awesome for all members (wicked drum intro, mad bass solos).....thinkin out of the box a little but maybs an instrumental version of Instititionalized by Suicidal Tendencies?

lamb of god - ashes of the wake

bit of a bitch to do with one guitar, but if you can loop the solo rhythms, it'd work i think.

If you like jazz try Take Five by Dave Brubeck. A trio I was in used to play it. I played the piano part on bass and the guitarist played the sax part.
It's one of only two covers we played the other was Great Cop by Fugazi.

That's roughly half the song, sir.

Also, Racer X and such. Google "power trio" bands, since there have been five billion of them, and you can sift through what you like.

Just jam and make your own tunes.
Instrumental jams are cool if they're original. Just get a riff down, and make some "signals" for the whole band when you plan to change into the next riff, and just have improv solos over it.
