    All my prog rock/metal, instrumental/melodical guitar/jazz music is pretty old. I have had trouble finding similar artists and/or similar music to the style that I am now enjoying the most.

    To summarize, I went through a music era of Metallica/RHCP, then listened to some heavy metal/thrash and then migrated to Blind Guardian, Helloween, Stratovarius, Angra, Rhapsody, Sonata Artica, Dream Theater but lately, despite my liking of Power Metal and some of the heavier Progressive Metal genres, I find myself enjoying more the lighter/ less louder progressive rock and jazz fusion genres that incorporate a lot of the elements I loved about power/prog metal.

    I found guitarists (mainly Jason Becker & Shawn Lane) and some songs from some groups that I'm trying to find similarities with other bands lately.

    I know this thread is confusing so I'll post some songs that represent the the style I'm looking for:

    1. Jason Becker - End of the Beginning
    2. Shawn Lane - Powers of Ten: Suite
    3. John Butler - Ocean
    4. Liquid Tension Experiment - Hourglass
    5. Dream Theater - Another Day
    6. Shawn Lane - Illusions
    7. Jason Becker - River of Longing
    8. Vicente Amigo - Tres Notas Para Decir Te Quiero
    9. Jason Becker - Air
    10. Queensryche - Silent Lucidity
    11. Symphony X - The Accolade
    12. Dream Theater - Six Deegres of Inner Turbulence
    13. Angra - Holy Land
    14. Demons & Wizards - Fiddler on The Green
    15. Jaco Pastorius - Come On, Come Over
    16. Marcus Miller - Frankenstein
    17. Victor Wooten - Bass Extremes

    You may notice that for some of the heavier power/prog metal bands I'm flavoring the lighter less loud songs they have which are much more melodic and have more elements from other genres incorporated.

    Please suggest

    I suggest you give Death a listen. Band gave birth to Death Metal and proceeded to record some of the greatest Progressive/Technical Death Metal albums on the planet. I suggest you seek out the albums Symbolic, Human, The Sound Of Perseverance, and Individual Thought Patterns. Those are some really amazingly produced albums fronted by the late great Chuck Schuldiner
