So, for a long time I've spent most of my practice time playing rhythm, but lately I've been purposefully stepping outside the square when it comes to my guitar playing. Thus I've been focusing on solos and such. This is probably the first solo worth noting, and I was just wishing for some criticism on it.

It's a midi file, That's just how it sounds.

Well I did realise that the final chromatic lick is somewhat close to Dime's 'I'm broken' lick, except mine decends and his ascends, and his is quarter of a step up. I'm glad you think it was good, considering it pretty much just came out one day.

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=772384

you might like some of the solos

and if you want to start writing more better solos
you should really look into some solo guitar artists [satriani, vai, malmsteen]

I love solos, I think that solos are amazing, but I've got undeveloped tendons in my hands so it's hard for me to get fast. That's about the limit of my shred ability and I've been playing 2 years.

But yeah, I love Paul Gilbert and John Lowrey. Never really had a chance to check out other virtuosos yet. Normally I'm not a sucker for "I can play super fast LOL" runs etc, but those two stuck out for me.

Will check yours out

I must confess I enjoyed the rhythm guitar better than the solo, but it was well put together. I didn't really "feel" it, so I'd like it to sound more "free" and less generic-ish.

It somehow made me think of Arch Enemy, which is always good ;]
But if you just let the solo flow, and just don't give a **** about theory or scales it become a whole lot better! =D

I find it amusing that you would say ignore theory or scales, because that's exactly what I do and did. I can recognise some scales, but most of the time I focus on how a piece sounds.

Thanks for the comment though, and I'll check out your lullaby of the lost asap.
