Yes, Chet Atkins is great for any occasion! I am a huge enjoyer of his, and also The Ventures, and The Shadows. I'd like to mention the passing of Nokie Edwards, one of the absolute greats of instrumental electric guitar (of The Ventures)

One of the instrumental CDs I play the most that would be inline with what the original poster could be looking for is The Jacques Loussier Trio performing jazz interpretations of Erik Satie compositions. They did a companion one on DeBussy, but I play the Satie one a lot more. And of course straight recordings of Satie are great as well! In a similar vein there are many Dave Brubeck quartet albums worth checking out and worth their weight in gold. Horst Jankowski who did A Walk In The Black Forest is my tip for overlooked instro great... he recorded in the '50s and '60s. Brazillian Antonio Carlos Jobim's music is also wonderful to work by, the world first heard him in the film Black Orpheus.

My favorite classical music is by Modest Mussorgsky, most notable for his piece, "Pictures At An Exhibition."
