Nice job man! Very melodic in the beginning and then you added in some real nice and clean sweeping stuff. Your hands look like they are moving a mile a minute!

Great work and definitely a solid entry

Thanks man! haha Ive found the longer i play, the less i focus on the fast stuff and go more towards melody haha I think the trick is finding the perfect blend. Thanks for the return crit dude!

Really good job here, came here from my video and yeah i think you could play my shit

With your technique and melody i could see you in a deathcore band but also in more mainstream bands such as inflames haha, whatever you do stay true.

horns up

Hey man, there's some really cool stuff in there and I think you have a good ear for phrasing.

A couple of things:

1) You vibrato is really good in places, but I would vary it a bit more so it's not too 'automatic.' Try changing up the speed (although no faster than you did here) and the width, for instance the high bend at 0:36 would sound nicer if it were more smooth and even.

2) Try switching between the neck and bridge pickup to vary up the tone. It can also be good to practice your alt picking and sweeps on the bridge because it's more unforgiving! The neck pickup makes it easier to play fast and have it sound clean.

Cool solo man. To answer your question in my thread, yeah I used to post a lot of guitar stuff but sadly I had an injury a couple of years back and I'm still recovering, hence I'm moving into more of a electronic/producer role.

I'll get back to it if I ever recover.

This was really melodic playing man! The only thing i could feel was that maybe you were relying on the bending a little "too much" if you can get my point. But overall, it was fantastic!
