I added a bit at the end... Nothing impressive musicanship wise.
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"
Yeah that wasn't exactly what I was thinking as far as direction of the song. I was thinking of bringing it back down to a heavier kind of essence.
I actually really liked the "funk" part. I think maybe to continue you, if you want to go heavy again, add a big guitar riff, but with the bass and drums add a cool syncopated rythym behind it (maybe as a slap bass) to accentuate certain parts of it and add some groove to it.

Added this variation, not much but hopefully a start - or at least to get an idea for what I mean (not sure how well it panned out)
pretty cool rhy-1 not mine.gp5
