Hmm.. let's see. First, there could be some more bends / vibrato. The notes are a bit static, so just try applying some vibrato when you rest on a note.

IMO you could also use some more notes that are not in the pentatonic scale, to spice things up. Use some chromatic passages possibly. And perhaps not rely too much on one type of lick (for example the one at 2:55).

Hmmm... maybe try move around the neck of the guitar and use different ranges, rather than stay in one place for too long.

Your timing seems to be pretty good. Not perfect, but I've heard much worse.

Your leads were getting overpowered by the back track. Turn it up!

I like your guitar tone for the most part. It sounds a bit weak in some parts and the whole thing could use a little beefing up, but I don't really know how you can improve that. What's your setup like?

Your bends are inconsistent. Practice bending up to the exact note you're trying to play.

Your need to get more creative with your phrasing too. A lot of times it sounds like you're just going up and down the pentatonic scale. Mix it up and experiemnt. Don't be afraid to hit notes that are outside of the pentatonic scale.

All in all, a good effort. Keep up the good work. Hope this helps!
