Hi mate. I think that the solo is on the right track. The parts are cool by themselves an the next thing to o is to make the transition between parts smoother. This can be done with some connection licks but will also improved with more backing track work: drum fills, bass / rhythm guitar arrangements, etc. That's the first thing that come to mind when I first hear the solo. I would also like to hear the whole track together to see how it fits in the whole song.

I know we have the mixing thread but there are very important things we should handle before we take care of any eq, compressors etc...and they affect overall feeling as well as mixing job. In this case Your tuning needs more attention. Always make sure to stretch strings well enough beofre recording. Also it's worth trying to tune Your guitar to exactly the same playing strength You will use while recording. Try to recheck You tuning on frets. Guitars are not "0" cents everywhere instruments. When You leave too much tolerance some of the frets will stay way out of tune.

Hey Marco wink.gif You have a lot of nice ideas here, but as Gabe said, you should tie them together more tightly. Think about nice water spots in the desert which need to be connected - the water must flow smile.gif So, invent passing licks which connect the big phrases. I don't know if we spoke about this, but Richie Kotzen was saying that he sees faster licks as a means to get somewhere - in our case tying up the big phrases together smile.gif

Let's see a broader context with the new strings on!

Hey mate smile.gif Very nice!!

I would develop the beginning - up until 0:43, as it becomes a bit repetitive - I understood the idea of building a theme, which is very good, but the turnarounds at the end of each repetitive phrase could be a bit more diversified and flowing smile.gif Let me know if you caught the drift wink.gif
