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!

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.

Kudos!

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

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

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!
