Again, cool guitar solos, but instro is an abbreviation for instrumental.

If it is, it's not well known at all. I just assumed you'd spelt intro with a typo.
Just a heads up that people may not understand the thread.

Wow, I did not know that. I've got several CDs with that term in the title. Google it, it is quite common.

Diamonds - Jet Harris and Tony Meehan (Is this the only ever UK number 1 with a drum solo? And do you know who played rhythm guitar?)
Man of Mystery - The Shadows
F.B.I. - The Shadows
The Stranger - The Shadows
Apache - The Shadows

The latter four were on this EP we had when I was very young and I still love all the tracks as much as any music in the world.
