Finally, someone posted Juke. There was a great national level (or maybe it was international) skate performed to it last week.
Another favourite, this one is by The Waterboys, from their 'This the Sea' sessions:
I've always like this one lots
So many great ones have been mentioned...let me cast an additional vote for Classical Gas, Walk Don't Run, and Pipeline. I love the Ventures.
I would also respectfully submit No Stranger To a Tele--by our beloved Redd Volkaert--and two written or co-written by the original Strangers (Roy and Norm) Stealin' Corn, and Hamming It Up.
If you have been to very many of Mr. Haggard's live shows, chances are that either Hamming It Up, or an uptempo instrumental version of Okie from Muskogee was played as he came out onstage.
The sound of summer for me.
It's hard to pick the BEST Zappa instrumental--he did many-- but probably the most accessible is Watermelon in Easter Hay. It could change your opinion about him if you carry any preconceived notions.
Frank Zappa - Watermelon In Easter Hay - 1988:
Black Napkins is a close second as far as accessible FZ songs go.
I like this ^^ one, also like Clapton/Bluesbreakers version and Jeff Healey did a nice job too, all had a different character.
Actually a couple more Freddy King covers by the Buesbreakers were good (and of course the originals were good too):
The Stumble w/Peter Greene
Driving Sideways w/Mick Taylor
Stanley Turrentine Don't Mess With Mr T
as of today at this time my favorite instrumental is theme from The Good Bad and Ugly.
wonderful piece of music by Ennio Morricone.
if you havent heard this done by a ukelele orchestra you havent heard it yet
music should make you smile weep cry and laugh all at the same time
How could I have forgotten this one?
The Supernatural by Peter Green from the John Mayall and The Bluesbreakers album "A Hard Road". Control and sustain like nothing else.
A new favorite...
Some of my favourites that haven't been mentioned yet...

Damn, that's 15 instrumentals already! I didn't even know that I'd easily be able to come up with 15 instrumentals out of my collection just like that. Just imagine if I had added the intros @ around 30 seconds & under! That would be thousands.
I also have a lot of them from my Lee Ritenour collection. He sure loves to put those on his albums quite a bit.
