This was recorded in March, I think. When I recorded this, I didn't have my new Ibanez Prestige with a tremolo, so I've sort of hidden all of the whammy stuff by using harmonics, and vibrato over the nut, and stuff like that...

Hope you like it!

that was pretty spot on. I like how you did the tap harmonics and those fast chord changes. If you want, can you check out my covers of steve vai tender surrender and for the love of god? They're on my profile under mp3s

That's the most accurate cover i've seen on Youtube thus far. I can tell you must of practiced hard to get the notes right cause you nailed it without the need for a trem.

Your an excellent player, just keep rocking!

Thanks! It took me a while, yeah. I had to watch a bunch of videos to actually see how Vai's phrasing is, although I didn't do everything by the book.

This sounds really good, its very accurately played. The only thing I think needs a bit of work is maybe your tone, could do with a bit less gain imho, but thats all down to personal taste.

Hey! Good cover, man! I think you can safely say you played this better than I did although I agree with previous posters, that your tone could do with a little less gain, but I have absolutely nothing to say about the playing: it was very accurate and apart from a couple of minor mistakes, flawless! Cheers mate, good work!

Haven't heard the original so I can't really compare...but I can tell you did practice alot, seems like a tough song to learn. I like your playing as well, it's not "robotic" or anythign like a lot of players out there. Very smooth and clean. Great job!

Let me ask you, does a machine like yourself ever experience fear?

Very well done, I can't really even think of any improvements to be made.

Excellent, I heard almost nothing wrong with it, but the part at 2:00 should be done a tiny bit faster I think.

Otherwise, spot on, keep playing and get even better.

Thanks all!

@Guitar2theface: Where exactly? Just when the solo kicks in, or maybe at 2:04? It isn't out of tempo or anything. Some parts of the solo had a little bad timing, though!

Self-critique: The bend at 2:22 is horrific, please God don't do that again, lol!
