You know that smokey, chilled riff of an electric guitar when you hear it.
I'll give some examples of what I already know, and any more suggestions are welcome. I'm not really talking about drone or other heavily treated guitar-based material, rather the more recognizable sound. Slide guitar is okay too.
Here's a classic, and one of my favorite examples, A Produce's The Golden Needle
I always have dug this song.
-Some other stuff I know about is: Robert Fripp
of course (any album suggestions besides his with Brian Eno would be great)
has a great "late night" type album called Machine Language- kind of reminds me of Eno at times, like Music for Films or something.
- I like the guitar work by Clive Wright
working with Harold Budd. That's great stuff.
-Mychael Danna, Bruce Kaphan
have done nice slide guitar ambient
- Suso Saiz
oh and Robin Guthrie
Any obvious omissions, or more obscure finds in this category?
