Well these are 2 improvisations by me. Would like to know what do you think about them. Please be proportional. I play only 1 year and 4 months =\

Overall good. I liked the second one more, the first one sounded more bluesy than the second. They did go on a little too long, I almost felt like just turning them off because it was getting to be to long. You do have talent just try and switch it up more. crit mine if you can - https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=519219

Man, you're really talented. That stuff was giving off a real Vai vibe there. Smooth playing and very calming to listen to.

I wish I could play like that, you've been at it half as long as me and you're twice as good!

I listened to Improvisacion 1...Very Vai/Satrian-ish, you hit all the notes perfectly, there was a bit too much reverb/delay for my taste, but overall it was great! Seemed a little chromatic to me at points, but even then...You've only played for 1 year and 4 months!? Shit man! I could barely play stairway to heaven when I played that long, of course that was only a year and a half ago for me; But yeah you've definitely got skill, you're very clean and your bends are perfect, the intro was a little ick but that doesn't matter, the rest of the song definitely made up for it! Great job, lovely tone too, what's your setup dude? I guess the only real advice that I can give you is that I noticed at some points(very few points I might add) you hit some nasty notes, just try to work on that a bit; Other than that it was perfect dude!

Woah thank you.
About the tone, it's my guitar (160 bucks squier stratocaster) through a digitech death metal distortion pedal connected to the pc.
With the pc I emulated a Marshall JCM800 amp, and added delay and a compressor so the sound doesn't get distorted (shitty sound card).
About the chromatic, it's because I did some runs in the harmonic minor scale and the mixolydian. My phrasing skills aren't that good so it can sound chromatic.

Oh no, the chromatic was fine, I wasn't complaining at all, it was good; I didn't even know scales when I had played that long, I could barely do the F chord :-) You've definitely learned quick, you can be(and are) a great guitarist man!
