Here’s an original solo. It’s the final solo I made in the band I was in before I quit.
This is probably the most difficult thing I have ever made, because the fast sections made me think in ways I hadn’t tried to think previously. This is all pentatonic with some chromatic stuff thrown in here and there!
Used my Gibson Les Paul Special into the Strymon Iridium. You can see the complete setup on the baby chair behind me! 😂
Would love some feedback on it!

Sheet mon! That was cool.
I liked when you hit the odd off notes.
Cool production too. Must've taken longer than setting up and playing that, eh?!

You're obviously very talented but I didn't find the solo very memorable.

Sounded a little "raw" like it needed some more delay/reverb.

Also sounded like the mix need to carve out some space for it. A lot of things were competing for the same frequencies as your guitar.

The parts that stuck out for me was at the beginning it sounded like you were using a wah but I don't think you were and the Kirk Hammett sounding part at 0:56.

Thanks man! This was me playing over the stems. If you search for “underwing house on fire” you can find the full version where the solo sits better in the mix. Really appreciate your constructive feedback!

I quit my band because I work full time as a teacher and I became a father last year, so time became a bit more precious.

thank you all for the great, motivating comments!
