Best Guitar Instrument, Battle #1

edited December 2008 in History of Rock
OK -- first round of the Batlle of Guitar Instrumentals.

For the first round we go back to the beginnings -- the start of the guitar instrumental. Lots of surf music, but perhaps some surprising variety. Some of these made the one hit wonder battles so they may be familiar.

Have a listen -- then VOTE FOR AS MANY AS YOU LIKE!
