Please have a listen and give me some constructive criticism. Let me lay out the what I have:

This is Fall to Pieces by Velvet Revolver played to a backing track. It is the whole song and there are no vocals....

I know it's long and painful to listen to, but please check out the 1st minute or so, and then feel free to skip to the solo at 2:58. (I know my bends need some work - intonation could be better)

I know the quality of the recording and the mix is crap - I just used a cheap PC mic - please critique my playing......I am still relatively new to this stuff.

Really to tell you the truth, there wasn't really much wrong with the song. I think the playing could stand to be a little smoother, but that's something that will come as you play the song more and more.

But all in all great job!

PS-great selection! Fall to Pieces is one of my favs!

Gun control is using both hands!!!

Wow!! Nice playing... I'm still shocked at how well you were able to nail that solo. Keep up the good work, if you have any friends that sing or play any other instruments I would talk to them and see if they want to do anything over that track because vocals would make the track alot fuller.

I liked it. Just keep playing it. Practice makes perfect.

What guitar and amp were you using?

If you know something better than Rock and Roll, I'd like to hear it - Jerry Lee Lewis

I was using an Ibanez AR250 and a Roland Cube 30 --- and a $10.00 PC mic!

I know why you only sign in as a "guest" ITS BECAUSE YOU ARE SLASH!

This song is a favorite of mine & you've done it pretty well.
One thing I will say though "Vibrato" is your friend so use it!

Nice work.

If Practice makes perfect & nobody is perfect.. Why practice?
