Hi mate, it sounds good! I’ll be very strict with my feedback but this is a nice solo.

I like the fact that it sounds musical and combines double stop bends and some shredding.

Regarding the things that could be better....

Sometimes I feel that the faster patterns could be simpler. For example the first one, I would go for a simpler and smoother pattern.

I think that the faster sections still need adjustments in order to sound more convincing. I recommend you to check some Black stone cherry and Alter Bridge solos to borrow some fast passages.

Thanks for hearing this out and all your comments Gabe! I really appreciate that.

I've been trying to find something "smoother" for the first run. Probably I'm missing your point though and need some help. It's a pentatonic legato lick. Frankly I think it's much smoother than the run on the very end (alternate picking, harmonic minor scale). Could you possibly point me at something that you find more appropriate?

Could it be that my tone is lacking? Maybe something less harsh and more mid pushed would work better. I guess the delay also is ... set wrong.

The main thing that I note is that the accentuation of your fast patterns isn't going very well with the accentuation of the backing track. This can sound weird, and maybe it's tricky to note it at first but please think on this and try to hear it.

The way to fix this could be to use different patterns, different dynamics work or maybe add or quit any notes to move a bit the pattern.

Maybe you can find some cool ideas here:
