    Buckethead - Colma
    Garsed - Big Sky

    Take you pick any track from either of those albums will do.

    Steve Vai- Tender Surrender, Sisters, Touching Tongues, Burnin Down The Mountain

    Tommy Emmanuel- Endless Road, Angelina, Those Who Wait, I've Always Thought of You, Mombasa, Drivetime (many more)

    Joe Satriani- Until we Say Goodbye

    Brett Garsed- Drowning, Brothers

    Eric Johnson- East Wes

    There are a lot of relaxing guitar instrumentals. I really like smooth jazz guitar, I find it very relaxing and also very impressive.

    satriani's version of sleepwalk is pretty relaxing. Can't remember who did the original though.

    I see alot of responses have leaned towards the shredders of the guitar world which is probably fitting given the request was from a guy called Thrash Man

    I'll throw a curveball in and give some diversity:

    Jerry Douglas-Little Martha (allman Bros cover). Absolutely beautiful acoustic slide work.
    Allman Bros-In Memory of Elizabeth Reed
    Garcia/Grisman-Grateful Dawg, Arabia
    Strunz and Farah-Balada, Levantina

    Good point jackaroe.
    How about some classical numbers.
    Cavantina by John Williams is sublime.
    Manuel Barreuco playing Villa-Lobos - Suite populaire bresilienne is very chilled and soothing.

    Santo and Johny Farina did Sleepwalk, in 1959.
