Much as I love Dire Straits (pre Brothers in Arms), where's your button for None of the Above?

I used it.

Manzana did you ever check out www.pandora.com for this kind of stuff, it's great. Enter a song you like and it recommends and plays suggestions and you can fine tune it as you go

Eric and the Satch man are high on the list along with SRV, but my favorite is Eruption. I know, more of a solo... but it is an instrumental of sorts, right?

Thanks Manz. I just doubled the no vote. This is not to say I don't like instrumentals. You may know that I post the occasional instrumental under the The Utilities brand. I just took exception to the choice offered and, because Local Hero is so very much better than any of the others, I didn't wish to demean it by voting.

Thanks for the opportunity to speak utter gibberish.

Chas :D

I voted for Vai's Sisters. In fact, that guitar part is what 'Lori's Song is modeled after.

On the other hand, my actual favorite instrumental isn't on the list: La Villa Strangiato by Rush. Nine minutes of kick ass rock that took me 3 months to learn.

Good poll, Manz... :lol:
