Wow. I can't believe I'm the first one done.
Hey Ivan, I might do another take with different amp settings if it's ok, but this one turned out pretty good for what it is anyway. I think my playing here was inspired after seeing Joe Satriani last Saturday night. I just had to throw an extended legato run in there. This one doesn't sound too R&B as kind of expected, but I think now I can go back and turn the gain down a bit to see what I and come up with that's more ...well rhythmic and bluesey. smile.gif

Thanks for the great backing. I'm looking forward to hearing and seeing everyone's take as well.

JamesT:

Rhythm: Great rhythm theme in the first part of the solo, and I like that it repeats later on. There is a big contrast between those slower and faster bits, but it sounds effective, it makes the faster ones stand out. Gradual transition would be great too.
Phrasing: Phrasing in the slower parts is great, and has nice repetitive and catchy theme. The faster bits are OK, but there should be a better connection with the backing. Try using strong notes more. There is a small section where you played slower arpeggios and that turned quite nice. So I recommend that you apply this approach more often, as it has more meaning and connection with the harmony.
Technique: Very nice playing throughout the solo, excellent legato on the faster bits. One suggestion from me is to apply skank playing technique on those single notes at the beginning of the solo. So, instead of picking single string, strum all strings, but mute the strings so only one note remains.
Sound: Nice fluent compressed lead tone, with slightly buzzing character. Try to lower down the high end a bit to remove that buzzing.

Rhythm: Very good rhythm, balanced and cool sounding. Timing is OK throughout the solo.
Phrasing: Nice use of pentatonic scale. What I would suggest is to work a bit more on dorian and blues scales. This will help you achieve diversity. Landing on the root note is good, but you seem to do it often that needed. Try landing on a different strong note of the chord, it can sound quite nice too.
Technique: Your playing is good, I like those soulful bends a lot. Try working on your picking technique to make it cleaner and tighter. Also work more on vibrato.
Sound: Very good sound, nice and crunchy with a smooth top end. Sounds very cool.

TylerT:

Rhythm: Great intro phrase, and very cool funky passages after that. Awesome feel for the rhythm, you got into the groove very nicely. Faster and slower bits are well balanced and synchronized. Timing could be more tighter tho.
Phrasing: Very good sense for short phrases and connecting various elements together. Nice sense for harmonic connection. Metal-sounding licks turn out to be very effective for this kind of backing.
Technique: Excellent display of a wide range of techniques, very well controlled and relaxed playing. You are technically great player with a very good sense for diatonic scale. One thing I notices is that you tend to rush in some places and this creates mistakes. Try to insert longer notes here and there, and make some pauses, that can sound good as well, and it will give you time to move to desired notes on the neck more precisely.
Sound: Sound is OK, but I would advise a bit more defined sound here. Although this sound is good for chunky rhythm playing, for lead I suggest more mids, and possibly some delay since you are modern type of a player. There is also some ambient reverb that is not that desirable.
