Was going to ask if vocals were allowed, but it seems like it's ok if they're just used as an instrument.

toe - After Image feat. Harada Ikuko

Heres another song, but live:
Toe - All I understand is that I don't understand

My favorite band of all time. Like that means something, haha.

What a wonderful guitarist. I like the tapping he does (especially the quick triplet) on his guitar.

It's not music, but I still find this wonderful to listen to from time to time. Only really works with headphones, though.


I particularly like Cryostasis Chamber.

Two covers for you:
JFJO perform Fables of Faubus, originally by Charles Mingus. The bass player looks like he's having fun. :)
NY Ska-Jazz Ensemble perform Naima, originally by Coltrane.

Feel free to discuss how covers ruin your childhood/make you rage (or not).

Edit: A guitar duo, Rodrigo y Gabriela playing Tamacun. This version is slightly faster than I remembered.

More specifically Phantom Regiment's 2008 show. It is epic.

A couple of these songs have vocals of some sort, but most don't:
Little People - Mickey Mouse Operation

They happen to be pretty awesome, in my opinion. Apparently the genre is Instrumental Trip Hop. As usual, I just put it in the "good music" pile and left it at that.

Start Shootin' is one of my favourite songs on the album, as is Basique, so if you aren't sure try them I guess.
