Just alittle bluesy riff/solo/lick I've been messing around with. Please Review!


Nice Man

I really like this, you gave the scale a bit of a new twist, and the clarity deserves a ten. I'm using this im my new music video flash in between parts.

Thats awesome dude! Can't wait to check it out!

need to change it up

right now you are just staying in the first inversions of the penatonic scale you need to expand that solo. maybe you should have a chord progresion in the background, but it's pretty good!

Not half bad!

Originality: (7) Yet another blues solo! I must say it's in the top 70-80% of one's I've heard though.

Clarity: (10) Crisp and clean recording! Very high quality in this sense.

Diversity: (6) alot of this solo is going up & down the scale, almost metal inspired in a way. Alot if licks are used a little too often. You seem very Slash inspired actually (no slam of Slash intended at all!) No issues there, he's an amazing guitarist, and I hear a little of him in your playing. (in the good parts) But try not to to play so "in time" (like alot of metal guitarists do) when it comes to blues, the whole thing sounds like it's being done to a metronome. Loosen up a little and try to feel it a little more. (I hate it when people use that comment to help me improve my soloing, but it's all I can think of) If u want I'll record a 12 bar blues progression for you (just guitar, no drums or bass), just name the key and give me a little time to record it suitably.

Effort: (9) overall, it's not bad, not bad at all!

Can't wait to hear some more

I know what it is...

It's blues. No it's rock. No it's metal. No, I was righ the first time, it's blues... maybe.
