Song 1
CH1 - Nice hook. You could have also played the guitar hook if you wanted. The guitar get active on the V Chord, this is where you should have backed your volume to down to support him.
CH2 - Nice fills and good supportive backing on V

Song 2
Open - Nice slaps and pulls here... it compliments the guitar well in this shuffle
CH1 - Good fills. The first fill you ended with a 1 draw... it sounded like a turnaround... get rid of the 1 when it's just a fill. Ah, and your turnaround lick (bar 12) should have a 1 draw at the end.

Song 3
Sounds like you were a little at a loss of what to play here... riffin' isn't bad... you sure could do that... just be careful of that 2+, it's a little too light for this dark-sounding song

Song 4
Nice bass line hook... cool idea. I don't think that I Chord bass line has a 5+ at the top... the 6+ will sound better.

Song 5
CH1 - Shake... good idea. Be careful of the lighter notes in your solo (3 draw and 2+) since this is a more bluesy song. Get rid of your 2+'s and bend your 3's.
CH2 - Good fills... be cautious not step on the vocals on the short phrases

Song 6
I like this... nice and lively. Make sure to play notes that match on the V Chord when it comes up in the end.

Sounds like you're having fun

It sounds like you're enjoying what you're doing and that's a good thing. Mark is right though, you need to work on your time - building up your embouchure will help your sound too.

Shaky timing on intro. I like how different the lick is from everyone else. I like the second tune with it's tongueblock sound on intro-then it meanders a bit? A solid repeating lick would have worked better on third tune. Sounds like you're doing the bass line on fourth tune-works fine. I'm not nuts about slow one cause it seems a little rudderless. I think the stoptime riff doesn't really work on the in between vocal thing on slow one-better to hold notes(a held warble would work better). The bass line on last one is workable but I like a chug better.

thanks
