I've started working on a progressive metal EP in which I want to throw a lot of jazzy stuff. This is just the bridge from one of the songs, but I wanted your feedback! Also the video compares two main tones I'm hesitating between, I'd also appreciate if you could tell me the one you prefer

Ibanez SIX28FDBG
ESP EC-1000 Deluxe
Ibanez AGR73T
Ibanez RG350DX
Ibanez AW
Peavey Triple XXX
BOSS pedals : TU-3 -> CS-3 -> NS-2 -> RV-5
Fingers of fury! Hmmmm.... that's not an easy one. When I started hearing #2, I thought, meh, I like the first one better. But then as it played on, it sounded better than #1 to me. Can you have #1 for the first ~3 seconds, and have #2 for the rest of it? Shouldn't be that hard to splice together, or just automate the 2 separate tracks (assuming your DAW, or equivalent can do that). Please review my music at this link:
