    I'm sure this has been done before but I wasn't really sure how to phrase a search for it. I'd like to put together a short playlist of telecaster instrumentals. Preferably in the country milieu. I'm thinking things along the lines of Brad Paisley's "Cluster Pluck" and Brent Mason's "Hot Wired". I think I've heard those mentioned before. But I'm a bigger fan of classic country than the newer stuff to be honest. Throw me some titles!

    No caountry song, but the Allman Bros "Jessica" is one of my alltime favorites.

    Link Wray- Rumble. That's the one he's known for, but they're all good.

    Edit: just noticed that you asked for telecaster instrumentals... Oops. Sorry.

    I think there have been more non-telecaster instrumentals suggested than telecaster instrumentals.

    In the country vein-- Albert Lee's Fun Ranch Boogie, James Burton's Corn Pickin, Jerry Reed's The Claw.

    As already suggested "Buckaroo" by lots of people
    "Nashville West" by Clarence White.
    "Corn Pickin'" by Burton and Mooney
    "Chaparral" by Don Rich
    "Homesteading" by the Homesteaders is a nice Bakersfield type guitar
    instrumental on the Little Darlin label.

    "Bobo's Boogie" by Miss Leslie with Randy Lindley on guitar.

    Here's James Burton with "Six Days on the Road"

    Here's one by Bob Morris, the guy who wrote Buckaroo.
    The title says Buck but its Bob playing this one.

    "Peelin Taters" by Jr Brown. Not strictly telecaster but he plays
    a nice twangy section in it.

    "Happy Go Lucky Guitar" originally by Owens and Rich
    Here it is by Redd

    "Hummingbyrd" by Marty Stuart

    In the same style as Cluster Pluck:

    Dixie Dregs - The Bash

    Hellecasters - Orange Blossom Special

    Put these three tunes back to back for one continuous Tele Jam.
