    Hi mattiasu,

    Welcome to TGP.

    First of all, what's up with the Santa mask? I found it to take away from the video.

    As for the playing, you have a nice collection of licks. This is good thing, but can also be a negative. It sounded to me that you were forcing "worked out" bits, especially on the fast parts. Watch the time feel. You need to stay in the pocket, especially on the faster parts. Work on more fluid connections between the parts so it flows more and also work on more motific ideas that will help tie the improvisations together more.

    More importantly, the bends were often flat to my ear. Work on the vibrato and bending. This will really escalate your playing!

    All in all, you are fine player. Work on those suggestions and you can take it to the next level.

    Hope this helps....

    Good luck with the contest!

    I meant, I think the video would have been better without the mask. There was no reason for the mask in my view. Maybe if you played a Christmas song....

    I thought I was going to see someone playing a national guitar - I was ready for some tricone tone.
