well u played it way far than the original one .. but i guess this one was good .
the tone was good but could have been better .

maybe it feels strange cause the original one is always in my head so its kinda strange anything different

Your tone was a bit muddy and i felt it took away from your playing, but overall it good. Marty Friedman's one of my favorite players and I cant stress enough how incredibly valuable it would be to learn this solo note for note, everything exactly how he does it, vibrato included. Dude is a master of phrasing and feel and what's missing from your playing is the agressive vibrato and slightly off timing at times.

I used to love this song/band. The tone is a little off but I appreciate that you at least had a backing track. At the level you soloed at, its pretty obvious you could cover the whole song if you wanted to and Ik for a fact singing like Dave Mustainne isn't very difficult lol. I'd recommend you try that as your next project, I would listen to that. Overall, not to much to say besides the fact that your pretty good at soloing!
Give my cover a listen: Queens of the Stone Age - Fairweather Friends
Hell's Shrine - mix of desert and stoner rock. Check it out on Soundcloud!

Pretty good overall but yeah I'd agree with some of the below criticisms, particularly on aggressiveness and vibrato. You're 90% of the way there, just a few small details and it'll be super-slayin'!

Marty has some really unique phrasing so i always give people slack when it comes to that. Its all about that ridiculously crowded ascending slidy thingy that im focused on lol. good job on that btw
