Anyway,...

I kinda lean the Eric Johnson flavor, and have for a while now. I really like this tasty number: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... nson&hl=en
And, the studio version of this tune, in my view, has stellar production.
I've always been impressed by his sense of melody, tasty chords and control of tone. He has a handful of cool tunes in his latest "Bloom" record.

Didn't vote because I couldn't make up my mind.

Besides all the ones listed a quick few come to mind.

Frankenstien by Edgar Winter
Anything from the Blow By Blow or Wired albums from Jeff Beck

Dregs, Brand X, Weather Report, etc....

I don't make a distinction between instrumentals and songs with vocals. Good musicianship blows me away as much as a good song with vocals, although I must say that great harmonies can send shivers down my spine!

The frist time I saw the Dixie Dregs was when they were touring for their first album Freefall. I had never heard of them, they were the opening act, it wasn't until after they were done and we were talking about the show that I realized that there was no singing.
