I want to enter the PRS Recording Workshop contest. I went with the funky one. I've done a few versions. This one, to me, seems the best of the litter.
Let me know what you think.
Good enough...or try again....

I love your style man....all feeling. I can't stand players with no soul, no matter how many notes they can squeeze into a measure. Very tasteful indeed. Don't get me wrong, I dig shredding too, but only if its musical, and with feel. What I have always found so remarkable about Malmsteen for instance, is his deep soulful bends and rich vibratos. You got that, and its the more golden of all techniques. A+ from me!

Wow! That may be the nicest compliment I've ever gotten on my playing. I'm honored. Thank you.

I like the 'space' too. It may be hard for some to believe but there really can be 'too many notes.' Give me the easy, soulful, melodic style of David Gilmour over a shredder any day.

I also like where you start your phrases. Timing counts.

Nice effort and a good submission. Of course, at my playing level, I'm easily impressed ;)
