From someone that listened to this KISS tune more than once in his high school years, I liked it  :) 

Good tone and solid playing.  There may be errors in there but to my ear not noticeable.  In other words what you're playing may not be perfect, and only noticeable to you as the player, but what you are playing fits in with the backing track very well. 

If I were you I'd keep it in my "play for fun" rotation.   :)

Sounds great, you fit right in with the backing track as others have said. Nice rocking.

Great job jono! I don't know the original well enough to offer further feedback, sorry. Keep rocking!

Well it was worth the wait to get the link right I thinks. At the start something is so driven it seems over-driven to my humble ears. You get going after a bit and seem to settle in.

Change your strings dude... the grit is rubbing on your frets if nothing else and will wear them out faster. Your tone will improve as well and should be brighter. After you do change them give a quick wash to the hands each time prior to play and they will last a lot longer...

You could employ a gate to help tame some of the crackle in your recordings. The guitar and high distortion are perfect fodder to be tamed by that gate for sure...

Rock on as you do it in style!

Thanks all for the feedback. Strings have now been changed, I  didn't realise old strings damaged the frets.
