Hello Fer,

Man, this is cool! I love this stuff! smile.gif Over all it is very good! I really like your tone and vibrato, and you seem to “grab” the notes in a nice sounding way! smile.gif

The main thing you could work on is the timing. This solo is meant to be played in triplets (three notes per beat) and that’s exactly what you do, but you don’t play them even all the time. Some notes are faster, and some shorter than the others. However, I kind of like it when it don’t sound that “strict” and I ofthen play this way myself. But if you’re a beginner I think it’s better if you work on making the timing perfect, and then you can go back to this “uneven” rhytm once you have complete control over it.

Second thing is the accent. Try to play the first note on each triplet a bit harder. This will add more attitude and dynamic to your playing!

Third thing: Work on changing the pickup from time to time. For example, use the bridge pickup for the longer notes and the neck pickup for the fast licks. This will change the over all feel a bit, to the better.

Also, you go slightly out of tune on a few notes, but I don’t find it very disturbing. But keep it in mind!

Great work, Fer! smile.gif
