Instrumental rock was most popular between the mid-1950s to mid-1960s. In this decade Surf music was very popular. Many rock guitarists were influenced by The Ventures' precise guitar work. In the 1970s Progressive rock and art rock performers featured virtuosic instrumental performances.

Searching, Confident, Resolute
Contemporary Pop-Rock at its best. Very catchy, young and motivated. Suits image films, TV spots or commercials!
Short, confident and strutting pop-rock-jazz-funk track. Brash, big horn section, excited, big city sound. Suitable as opening for TV show, game show, talk show, contest, game or other media.
Mid-tempo swinging country blues, with plenty of twangy guitars and Telecaster picking. Electric slide guitars over bass and drums -- classic country stuff.

A contemporary Mexican / Latino ballad with various electric guitars & pedal steel over bass and brushed snare. Happy, joyful, celebration like, but restrained. Classy and genuine Mexico or latin america.
Nice and melodic guitar pop. Typical synths complete the sonic experience very smoothly!
Melodic electro-rock track with elements of Science Fiction soundtrack work, progressive rock and ambient electronica. Guitar leads, epic pads, analogue synth sequences. Among many other features are a long, floating and building intro, and an guitar solo reminescent of Alan Holdsworth or Alex Lifeson (Rush) midway through. A unique track, hard to describe, but perhaps as a more rock-influenced Tangerine Dream or a more powerful Vangelis? We recommend you listen to the entire full length preview.

A groovy rock with a clear ensemble. Perfect for sports and cars.

Instrumental rock is a generic term used to identify those songs or artists of the rock genre who prefer the instrumental component to the vocal one: the latter is for the most part practically absent. Being a generic definition, there are no precise canons for this musical genre: largely instrumental compositions can be found almost everywhere in rock.
Many artists in the course of their career have focused on the creation of entirely instrumental works in rock: Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, The Ventures, Booker T. Nowadays, the term instrumental rock has become synonymous with experimental rock, progressive rock, fusion or post-rock, because in most of the works of these musical genres there are almost no vocal parts. In fact, when rock & roll was born, even before the explosion of the British invasion, it was more artists and ensembles who played instrumental music than sung. In the years to come, it will be more and more progressive rock artists and jazz-influenced artists to make compositions entirely instrumental.
