So i don't listen to much music produced by guitars and such. No, I like by turntables and laptops, and thus I'm far more indie than you could ever hope to be. Or something like that.

Anyway, I have recently begun to love a genre I have titled 'instrumental guitar-based noodlings'. As this title may not communicate much meaning to anyone other than my self, I will add that this encompases 65daysofstatic, Explosions in the Sky, and Mogwai. If you want to dispute the inclusion of any of those bands in my genre, go away. It's my genre, and I'll put whoever I like into it.
So anyway, can I get some ideas of similar bands from you educated people? The similarity priority list runs parallel to the genre name.
Most importantly, I want instrumental. People singing is 99% guarenteed to piss me right off. Exceptions are limited to Thom Yorke, whoever that guy on 'The face of the earth' by 65DOS is, and one UNKLE song. That's it.
So no lyrics.
Second, guitar-based. I can't stress this enough. I have plenty of instrumental electronica and Hip-Hop. This area likes new music, but is getting along quite nicely as it is.
Third. Noodlings. While the hardest are to define, this is extremely important (third-most important in fact). For example, Rock of Travolta are good. They are guitar-based, and instrumental. However, they don't noodle. That is all the explanation I will give, as everyone likes a challenge, so that will by my challenge to you.

Hmmm...  This is a little out of my expertise (which is mostly electronic as well) but it sounds like you'd enjoy some other instrumental post-rock type bands:

Do Make Say Think
Tortoise
Battles

...and maybe, though it is less guitar-driven, Godspeed You Black Emperor.

Ah, I forgot GYBE. They rock too.
I have one track by Tortoise on an Urban Renewel Program Vinyl I have, but I'll investigate some more. I will also look into the other two. Thanks alot.
Instrumental post-rock, huh? I think my genre name is better.

This was my buddy Mike's band before he moved back from L.A.

It's very freeform...kind of jazzy, but he's the noodling guitar on the sample tracks. I think you'll dig his playing. His new band is way more structured than this, almost pop metal, but he's still has this kind of feel to his playing.

A little more "rock" than the bands you mentioned, but two albums in particular by Joe Satriani may interest you... The Extremist, and Flying in a Blue Dream.

Would Steve Kimock Band qualify? They "noodle" a lot, play pretty much nothing but instrumentals and are definately guitar driven.  Might be too psychedelic or something, check 'em out regardless.

Hmm, my first response to this is Dirty Three, but you may not like them because they are more focused on a violin, but there is a fair amount of noodling by the guitar.  And violin noodling is pretty good too, I will assure you of that.

Another one you might like is Rachel's, but they lean more towards classical style arrangements.

Not instrumental, and not nearly enough noodling.However, I'll check out the other stuff mentioned. If I can find it...

there's quite a bit of noodling in some of the songs... however, if you want something a bit more like mogwai, maybe you'd like board of canada or stereo lab... try them.
