Love guitar in an instrumental song so top of the list is anything by Johnney A the Boston musician but if I must pick his cover of "The Wind Cries Mary" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikkwSYE_JSY

but the song by Explosions in the Sky "Your Hand in Mine" is a song I can listen to over and over. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdiY6kijYHE

Rise. Herb Alpert

 

Alpert is the only recording artist to hit No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 pop chart as both a vocalist ("This Guy's in Love with You", 1968), and an instrumentalist ("Rise", 1979).

Interesting side note - The original composition is a military march by Austrian composer, Josef Franz Wagner, 1893. He was known as the Austrian March King.
