Ok, nice. I like your idea.

Here's some suggestions smile.gif : Try to make the riff a little less generic. It's good as is, but maybe try to put some cool fingerings and maybe some odd beats, instead of just downstroking eighth notes.

As for the solo, no offense, but it is basically just playing the pentonic scale vertically. Nothing wrong with the pentonic scale...just try to make it sound less like you're just playing a scale exercise, and more like a solo. I do like the trill at the end though wink.gif

I use Marty Friedman as an inspiration. He uses incredible scales and many weird fingerings and patterns to make an absolute masterpiece.

The same goes for the outro; it's basically just a scale exercise.

Also, the notation values are screwed up. Don't know if that bothers you, but it always does me, when I write something on powertab. I'm probably just excessive compulsive. laugh.gif

So there's some of my suggestions. I hope I wasn't to harsh, but I think not. wink.gif I'm really liking the idea, post it again after you fix it up some. smile.gif

Thanks alot for your criticism! it makes me want to keep practicing. Also, what do you mean by notation values?(im letting my ignorance show i just know it.)
Edit: Ill post more tomorrow, gonna rework the solo and some of the rhythm.

What I mean by that is that there aren't any music bars inbetween the proper amount of notes which make up the time signature that it's in. I really suck at explaining stuff like this, so here is one of the theory lessons.
