Texas Blues improvisation(C4C)

Hello everybody!

I recently recorded myself improvising over this texas style blues backing track, so I decided to upload it to youtube. I would really love some constructive criticism from you guys on my playing. I know there's a lot of faults here, but I also think there's some good parts.


Of course, I will C4C, so that your time will not be wasted


Texas style blues jam

Thanks in advance!

Sounds nice.
My only suggestion would be to cut the click intro.

Great track dude! Very smooth playing, your licks come out nicely, though I think at times you're repeating the same phrase a bit much. Overall, a nicely constructed solo - it's got an SRV vibe to it.

Tone wise, I like what you're doing - a clear, crisp lead tone. Did you do the rhythm too? Some nice things happening there.

Check out my track at http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru....php?p=32445288

Kudos!

Thanks for the comments, guys! Hitman, I really get what you're saying about how things get a little repetitive in the solo. And to answer your question, I didn't do the rhythm too, this was a backing track from guitar techniques

Checking out your track right now

wylde,
Recording sounds very distant. Lead guitar playing is very good (it fits the backing track)! Please review my music at this link:

As I listen:

The playing's very clean, and you do a good job of changing the feel of your lead parts when the rhythm section changes, which can make solos feel a lot stronger. The only thing I think could improve this is some more laid-back, spacey leads to break up the otherwise constant soloing.

Good work. If you'd like to return a crit, the link's in my sig.

Nice playing, indeed maybe you should put some more pauses in your playing but otherwise great job!
