So this is what I did on Christmas day... can you believe it? I know its not that metal, but if a submission in any other category has distortion it gets shunned like crazy, so I guess this is metal (NG's genre system is way too basic). It's short, but oh well, I'm no JS or WA or LV, not yet... get off my back about it. Rate, review, enjoy

My ears are BLEEDING DX... sir are so out of tune it actually hurts my ears!

But other than that, pretty good solo, some notes seemed to be out of key, except maybe if that was intentional, of course.

I didn't really like the part with fuzz, and it wasn't because of the actual fuzz. You were preparing a pretty good solo, and then at the moment you put on the fuzz, you hid behind it and didn't really do aything original after that. Truly saddening, but it's OK, it's Christmas after all! ;)

The first part made me think of Hotel California, and befor you put fuzz in the background, it kind of made me think of Pink Floyd. :)

Anyways, Merry Christmas!

Not out of tune at all sir, just way out of TONE. That's because my recording software is junk, and so is the pedal I use. I could have lugged my Marshall stack upstairs and recorded through that, giving possibly the best tone on NG, but I'm lazy (especially after the amount of eggnog I consumed). I absolutely hate fuzz, but since I put no work into this at all, I didn't care about it. Also, it wasn't prepared, it was improvised, I laid down a simple jazzy track and went to town. Also, I now have a new guitar to record with, so all my recordings will get better. I did mean to use out-of-scale notes, such as notes from Hungarian Minor and Harmonic Minor.
Thanks for the in depth review, I always like to know where I need to improve (though I always hate having to spend time to improve)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
