For those who haven't had the chance of knowing about that contest, well do now!

Anyways, I'm just in search of constructive feedback on my technique/playing and such.
Don't mind the tone too much please, I know it's fugly, but it was done before I had any real experiences with my DAW.

Cheers!

I don't even know why you needed to post this! haha

Your technique is stellar, and the tone is fine, except maybe the guitar could come down a couple of DB in the mix to make it blend a bit more evenly. But that is just matter of preference I guess.

good luck!

Btw, what daw are you using?

You can check my stuff out if you want, but it sucks in quality compared to yours, bro

Thanks man, and well, I decided to post this to get some crits and some views obviously, but I could use some constructive feedback !
As for the solo track being so high, it was requested in the contest rules that it should be high enough, but I guess you are right and I could've come down a few DB.
I'm using Cubase LE4, it came with my PreSonus FireBox.

Cheers for the crit!

You have real good technique, especially playing on a distortion like that. It sounds kinda scratchy, and almost RSE like lol. Your playing however is great. I didn't like the backing track to it though, your playing style just doesn't seem to fit, especially when your using nothing but diatonic scales (could be wrong, I think your using your modes quite a bit) although the backing was pretty simple for jazz fusion also. I think the backing sounds kind of pale and generic. Your sense of melody is also extremely good. Hope you win though! That was solid. Keep it up.

Crit mine?
