    Hey guys, since I got some really good (i.e. practical and useful) constructive criticism last time, I've decided to post my 2nd guitar solo contest entry here. I finished 2nd last time, but I have no expectation of winning this time. I mostly decided to enter this new contest just to get more experience and feedback from the judges.

    We were asked by Ed Garcia (Vitalism) to compose a solo on a backing track he supplied, which is from the Vitalism song Bipolarity. The backing track contained some of the harmonies from Ed's original solo, which was a bit of a pain in the ass, i.e. the section near the end.

    The solo had to be uploaded to Instagram (my IG: @hungryguitarstudent) and also sent by email, hence the other thread I started about Instagram audio quality on iOS.

    Any constructive criticism is really appreciated :)

    Disclaimer: audio quality is not great and I'm not a pro, I have a lot of things to work on (vibrato, intonation, cleaning up my technique). Anyhow, here it is... Thanks in advance for the listen, it's much appreciated :)
