    Using my Jackson COW 7 with Seymour Duncan Blackout through Guitar Rig 3. In the background you can hear guitar pro drums, guitar and bass. On GR3 I'm using 2 eq's, a tape echo, some reverb and noise gate. (and i think it's uber sonic or whatever it's called - head and cab)

    This is a solo from my band's newest song, have to work on it though...

    your thoughts? :)

    Good playing.

    The melody is nice. Only the ending arpeggios seem strange to me. First I find them harmonically strange, meaning strange not in a fitting way, and it seems you just seuqunced them as a crescendo...but it's not really leading anywhere.

    Just my thoughts after listening twice.
    Bottom line: Cool, I would just change the end...

    This sounds very cool, but I have to agree with mccap, the wankary end sounds funny. I would change it. But up to the point of the end it sounds mint!

    Hey,
    just listened to it once more.
    Just an idea to replace the ending arps. I would try a line with large intervalls starting very low and ending up high. Something like two dotted eigths and an eigth. Maybe some very short trills and runs in between...
