Are these the coolest riffs ever?? (Rock) - matt makaha

Here's a brand new song I wrote:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyOBkg282Q0
The buckethead sounding licks in the mini solo isn't played the way you might think. It's a bit similar to the intro licks in my video in my signature, but it's skipping over different strings though.
My instrumentals can now be downloaded for free, using the link.

Hello there. Writing as i listen:

Intro is very chill. Like the bass sound. Somehow it gives me a kind of Hawaiian vibe might be your name haha. The lead sounds at 0:39 is rather 80sish it gives me a kind of "Time of my life" vibe. Altough that song is kind of fresh in my mind because of listening to the Panzerballett version a lot lately. The solo thingy at 1:20 is pretyt nice and still very chill and clam. I like the shizzle of the hats at 1:37, if those are hats. If it's something else I still like. The kick sound could come up a bit and be a bit less wool and more punch in my opinion. The difference between the snare and the kick really stands out because the snare itself is really crisp and clear while the kick is very undefined which kinds of jams. The guitar rhythm tone is a bit "weak", a bit to much on the fuzz sound rather then the "real amp distortion" side of things. I mean it's not bad but I feel it could be better. Maybe play arround with the microphone position a bit?

In general the song is nice, it's very chill and groovy. Really getting the vibe across. Production wise you're getting the vibe across but I feel there is room for improvement. Just some little details that could use some work.

Regarding the tone, at one time I had an ADA MP-1 preamp and a Mosvalve power amp--that set up had some great tones, both rhythm and lead...
