Very rockin' track. Excellent lead playing and guitar tone would be hard to beat. The drum track keeps the drive going nicely and the rhythm guitars and keyboards provide a canvas ripe for the lead guitar work.

This is definitely a winner in every respect.

All in all a good guitar/instrumental tune, and when the chorus guitar took over towards the end it became even more enjoyable to listen to. At the start it sounded like there were two melodies rolled into one, but that might be due to the sound in general. Maybe a little more omph in the bass-area would do the trick to make it more solid :-) Keep up the great work.

    Much better this time around, sir. The improvment to the bass is notisable and the whole mix sounds like it has more omph to it. By the way: I guess that Stevie Vai is a big influence to you ;-) Among others.

    joe satriani/steve vai/eric Johnson along w/malmsteen are very much in a league of their own. it will be very difficult to break in. that is why I sincerely look to you and others for constructive criticism in order that I eventually improve just enough to become a one hit wonder-not that I can foreseeably be ever mentioned in their same breath.

It's definitely a holiday song. From the initial performance, I looked up at the title again to be sure and yep. You got that "holiday instrumental" in the description. I wasn't on crack. I am an instrumentalist, so this song is right up my alley. Awesome guitar. Love, love, love it. I do like that crazy chord change too. It breaks up the song enough to keep interest. Awesome job!

    thank you so very much and from a fellow instrumentalist-
    i consider your evaluation especially note worthy and inspirational.
    we are all trying to get into that rarefied air/climate known
    as "an instrumental guitarist". so thank you once again.

    take care
    bryan
