Suggestions of nice guitar songs for my playlist


I'm looking for good suggestions of songs to add to my Deezer playlist "Guitar heaven".
So, do you know songs where the (electric or acoustic) guitar plays a main role?
Common guitar, slide guitar, steel guitar, ... whatever.
I'm open to all genres. Whether up or down tempo.
Let me know title + artist or pass me a youtube link.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the suggestion n2fc!
I just listened the whole "Classical Gas" album.
The track "Country Idyll" is also a nice one.

More suggestions anyone?
zzynxSoftware engineerAuthor Commented:
Thanks viki2000. I guess you mean "Concierto de Aranjuez: Part 2 Adagio" in particular.

More suggestions anyone?

@Paul Sauvé
Thanks Paul, but could you please give one or two tracks of those artists? Eg. your favorites.
You did not mention if the song should have been written original for guitar or can be written also for piano and interpreted by guitar.
One such example is Yanni with One man's dream:

>> You did not mention if the song should have been written original for guitar
That's no requirement. I don't care what instrument they've been written for.
As long as it are good performed songs where the guitar has a main role.
On the other hand, I also don't want a list filled with just guitar covers of famous tracks.
But a good guitar cover could deserve its place in my list.
(I can't guarantee however, that I will like all your suggestions of course. Taste is a personal matter ;-)
OK, the here is another one Agnus Dei - Michael W. Smith:

Just to illustrate that with "the guitar playing a main role" I don't mean it should be a guitar instrumental, here's an example of a song with a nice guitar sound in it, that I just discovered today:

I'm somewhat disappointed about the lack of input.
Maybe EE is not the right place to ask this kind of question.
Nevertheless, many thanks to those that tried to help and did comment.

you have only ONE tag: Miscellaneous

had you added the Digital Audio tag, you may have received more input!
Paul SauvéRetiredCommented:
also, most country music songs are loaded with pedal steel guitar riffs!
