Suggestions for non-classical instrumental music

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for suggestions for some non-classical instrumental music.  I have a wide variety of musical tastes and need something different I can fire up and just sit back and relax too.  I have the rock influenced stuff like Godspeed or Explosions in the Sky, but other than that genre don't know where to start looking.

Moonlit Sailor is an excellent instrumental rock band.

 

Here is a link to my fav by them.

Try surf guitar like the Ventures or the Shadows. Great stuff. Santo and Johnny too.

Gotta include Dick Dale in the list when exploring surf guitar. He practically invented it.

BTW he's still rockin'...saw him live this summer.

I'll check it out.  Listened to a song quick and it was pretty good. Thanks

This brings me back.  My father used to listen to this.  I might have to get vinyl (and something decent to play it) if I pick itup!  Thanks for the recommendations.

Try Apocalyptica, for example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVMYJTADyqY

This is a varied list, depending on your stylistic preferences:

 

Nox Arcana, Midnight Syndicate - contemporary-style darkwave/orchestral

The Piano Guys

Escala - pop/neo-classical quartet

Secret Garden - Celtic/New Age-style violin & piano

Kevin Kern - contemporary solo piano

 

There are also other genres like instrumental metal, folk, & jazz, if you're into those....
