Man, this is really impressive! The recording quality is a lot better than most metal stuff on here and the playing rocks! This is one of my favorites by them to start with and you did a really good job. One tiny suggestion is to work on the intonation when you go down to the low e string at around the minute mark and a little after. It seems that you bend it just slightly, sending it out of tune a bit. Other than that minor detail, this is awesome! And I love how you rocked the hell out at like 5:15. Rock and roll man.

Very good indeed ! Some parts I'd rather play down-picked, but that's just me. Solos are perfect, you definetely took your time nailing them. And improv is good, bit of Dave Mustaine vibe there. Excellent job !

Everything sounded perfect, especially the solo! What are you using to record ? love the tone.

For recording I ran my guitar through a digitech rp50 straight into the computer and recorded it using garageband

I think all the rhythm playing is tight, perfectly in time, good sound, good technique. Actually your playing is so in sync with the track, I kind of forgot I was supposed to crit your playing and just started grooving to the tune up until the solo, where things got a little messy with all the shredding from you and the track stepping on each other's toes.

I know you said to ignore it, but the beginning of the improv of was disastrous lol, although I did like that shreddy thing you did towards the end of it.

The only thing that it sounds like you could use a little work on would be picking a little bit more cleanly. It sounded as if you were picking faster than you should have been. Not a huge problem though, I'm pretty sure I do that all the time. Great Cover.
