pretty good solo.  You need to work on your bends though.  your bends need a lot of work actually.  but other than bad bending good job.

also this post is in the wrong section http://www.justinguitarcommunity.com/index.php?board=28.0

Aye thanks for the response man I really appreciate it. But yea I'm actually pretty good with bends and all that it's just I had played guitar like all day that day so my hands were in pain so I loosened the bends some. Lol

Lol yea man, those bends I don't think are bent to a full tone sooo it's whatever hah. But yea I've only played 2 years. My dream though is to become a songwriter like John mayer type-ish. So I practice allday everyday to learn as much as I can about the guitar. Hah

some good licks and phrasing ... as mentioned it needs you to develop the fine art of bending ... but also vibrato I would say too ...

and maybe use some staccato notes etc for variety ...

we're all learners and this sharing for open comment is a great way to improve

good job overall

All good - but bends do need work - the main problem seems to be that you are bending with your 2nd finger... there are some guys that do that but it's not common...

When you use your 3rd finger later in the vid the bends are lots better!!
