Unknown to me.
Some cool sounding open chord voicing.
Really well played.
A few hiccoughs and minor finger-fumbles.
I would have liked some more light and shade.
Your dynamic range was at or about full throttle most of the time.
Some softer more subtle passages would improve it for me.
Good job.
Good vibes.

nice playing, didn't know it either but you it doesn't seem the easiest and it was quite consistent.

I think you might have been -so- focussed on getting it right, it looks a bit like it's "work".
Of course, "stress beause of the little red light" is something I also seem to be wrestling with but it looks like pressure makes you perform and that's a good quality. You seem confident when playing and that's a strong skill as well and it will serve you.

I might lean a bit to Close2u's comment about the dynamics but that certainly aint no showstopper to me

Solid performance!

Nice playing, I didn't know the song either but going to go check out more Alter Bridge after hearing you play this!! :)

I have a feeling that the recording is compressing the dynamics, I think I can hear a compressor pumping a bit - but what the others guys say is right - you ned to work the dynamics a bit more to bring a little more 'life' to it - especially with no vocal.

I'd work on playing is soft as possible and then work out where in the song might be appropriate the use that kind of dynamic drop.

But well played - solid timing and good hybrid picking work!! :)

Well done man!
