But this beats anything (imo):
Where is the guitar solo ?
You could have a listen to Roy Buchanan. I particularly like two of his signature tunes, Sweet Dreams and The Messiah Will Come Again. The latter has a talky bit at the start, but it’s an instrumental in essence.
Yikes! That’s good. I’ve not heard/seen it before, but Gary Moore certainly could play. If I’m not mistaken that was Peter Green’s lemon burst too.
Another mention for Roy Buchanan… A fantastic guitarist. Everything instrumental from Roy is very highly recommended. I had the chance to see him 5-6 times in very small venue before his tragical death and he was simply amazing… Have a listen to Roy’s Blues and Green Onions; just to name a few…
Video cancelled. I will try another one later…
You had posted it some days ago. It’s good . But not really what I am searching for.
Yes - I thought it was worth posting the link to save anyone interested searching.
I hadn’t heard this before - Buddy Guy’s tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan.
That one is the best posted so far

I saw that list yesterday and I think you will not find much there that is in the style that you want - it’s mostly traditional blues. I am enjoying this thread which has made me pull out quite a few records I haven’t listened to in a while and alerted me to some new music. I liked the Bruno Lara track you listed and it immediately made me think of Carlos Santana’s style. I expect you know his work but his style is Latin with a strong blues influence, and he recorded a number of instrumentals, such as this:
Of course I know Clive.
I love it
I tried to find your Buddy Guy track above in an album. Couldn’t. Maybe it’s just on YouTube.
I however downloaded two tracks from him, « Do your thing « and « Ain’t no sunshine « . Not instrumental, but I like a lot.
You seem to be looking more for electric guitar blues pieces and players. Try this. Guthrie is one of the best and certainly most versatile electric guitar players in the world right now. Follow the changes and see if you can keep up with his ideas. This is all improv too.
WARNING: Guitar players should have a stiff drink before watching this.
Very nice, a bit in the Melvin Taylor spirit or Albert Collins.
Three more I love:
Miles Davis / That’s right. From Decoy.
Larry Carlton / Robben Ford : Two bad. From their live in Tokyo.
Roman Pokorny: Japanese Monkeys.
Electric guitars, I omitted to specify in the title of my thread,
Check out Larry Carlton’s “Blues for TJ,” done in tandem with a guy named BB King. The entire cut is 100% instrumental blues electric guitar. It is on his album titled “Friends,” - which has some other really good cuts in other genres.
I also think if you are willing to accept some singing, you will find many blues tunes with extended solos that are probably what you want. One that immediately comes to mind is Johnny Winters’ “Be Careful With a Fool.” The Allman Brothers version of “Stormy Monday” is another.
