Classic Instrumentals

Recommended Posts

"Great Gig In the Sky", "Any Colour You Like", and "Interstellar Overdrive" (all by Pink Floyd) are my favorites.

"Great Gig In The Sky" wasn't an instrumental, unless of course you consider what amounts to an extended fake female orgasm to be an "instrument". :P

Anyway, here are my favorites:

Jeff Beck Group, "Beck's Bolero"

Genesis, "Los Endos" (especially the live version at the end of Seconds Out)

GTR, "Sketches In The Sun" (actually a Steve Howe solo, but it appears on the one-off GTR album)

I consider an instrument something you can learn to play. But if you can't sing (like me) you such can't learn (I tried :P )

as for song: I'm a fan of "Explosions in the Sky", they make great instrumental music.

Sorry to differ from you, but you CAN learn how to sing... Maybe you couldn't learn, just like the thousands of people that try to learn other instruments and fail... The human voice was the first instrument, and it is the purest because is the only natural one... Everything else is artificial...

While I see what you talk about, chinchu, I'd have to say that music with singing isn't really what people think of when they hear the term 'instrumental'. ;)

Well I did say it was my own opinion.. Of course everyone thinks of instrumental the way you do... But it's is actually a mistake in my opinion...

Uncle Joe's video for Jimmy Smith's Walk On The Wild Side got YouTube's 'terms of use' heave-ho, but it definitely deserves a reprise.

You don't hear much this "big" sounding any more.

Jimmy and his B-3 drop in around 2:42.
