Thank you for your submission. I like your recorded tone... very nice. I personally would like to hear reverb, delay, or both, added... though I can respect a player who likes a dry sound... just my taste. You play a very distorted amp like I do (love the tone). Explore opening your cup to varying sizes, the tones these amps can make are amazing. Watch the opening of my Music Theory Study 6 video, it's a good example of the dynamics just the opening or closing of the hands (and everything in-between) can do. Very nice V-IV-I's Nice use of Chorus Forms Nice quote from "Off The Wall" It sounds like you purposely left out turnarounds (hip idea). I personally think it's good to mix the use of those last two bars... sometimes not playing a turnaround, sometimes playing it and often using it as a pickup to the next chorus (generally most desirable). Again, thank you for sharing... very nice playing!
