Hi Bala,

Rock on.

I can't play lead very well, so can't offer much as way of critique, but;

Liked the groove.
I'd perhaps work on sustain/vibrato on some of the single note parts - amazing how much juice you can get from one note.
Licks - some nice ideas in there and you managed to link everything up nicely.

Enjoyed it.

Thank you for the listen and feedback Digger. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm really glad to know what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong (what needs work :)) with my improvs. Lead guitar is something I really want to be good at! I'll definitely work some more on the sustain of single notes :)

Hi Bala,
Sounded pretty good here on this end and your improving a lot over past offerings... Tone is better as well and your play seems more solid on the leadwork.

Good stuff and keep on a rocking!

Thank you LBro! Still have miles to go! But I’m glad to know it’s going in the right direction! :)

Sounds good and rocking to me, Bala! Far and away beyond my ‘soloing’ skills right now so no tips to offer other than to echo what Darrell said about listening to lots of music that’s what you want to play, and learning from that.

Thank you Mari. Miles to go really. But now I have an idea of what I'm going to do this year! Listen to lots of music and invest time in transcribing solos!

Hey Bala,

I can hear improvement on your playing, bends are getting better ;)  It's not an easy exercise. You have some interesting ideas  I think, keep on working on them to make them perfect. Well done

Thank you Kevin! Been spending quite a lot of time on lead guitar lately. Definitely willing to go the distance with it! :)
