Nice tasteful playing and tone! You have a solid bending technique and that rake at 1:20 was awesome, it made me nod my head in approval. The only thing that caught my ear was the slightly sharp bends at 1:24. The initial bend is spot on but the ones following it sounded ever so slightly off, as if the string started slipping beneath your fingers so you pushed harder. Playing it with the ring finger would help since the string feels more firmly held in place (at least of for me). But it didn't distract from the solo and the lick at 1:35 got me nodding my head again. All in all a great cover man.

I've uploaded a cover of Aces High if you don't mind checking it out.

Solid playing. Some crits are (1) your tone is too compressed and high gain which hides your dynamics and makes everything sound flat even when you're using variation in your picking technique. (2) Your vibrato is often a bit too fast and uncontrolled. Try slowing it down sometimes and making it more subtle and even ie. 1/4 or 1/8 notes instead of 1/16 notes.

Here's one of mine to crit if you're interested, the solos might demonstrate the elements I mentioned above: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1650355
