    Finally, someone posted Juke. There was a great national level (or maybe it was international) skate performed to it last week.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet - Having an Average Weekend. Probably more commonly know as the Kids in the Hall theme.

    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.:eek:

    I also have a lot of them from my Lee Ritenour collection. He sure loves to put those on his albums quite a bit.
