Nice playing mate, but you can take a little more time to learn each note of the first solo, I would turn down the guitar volume to fit better like the original version, there's no need to have the volume this high once you're playing over the backing track, and for the rhythm parts, its nice you've recorded 2 guitar parts, it sounds much better than a single guitar, but for better results I would try the left - right distribution at 75% for each side, not 100% left or right.

    It's a good start. Your two guitars are out of sync with each other, which leads me to believe that you recorded the first one to the backing track, and then the second one to the first one. Record each side's guitar part without the other playing in your monitor. Follow the drums, every time. I think you'll find they sync up better. I'd also spend some time getting bends a little smoother and working on bending to pitch perfectly.

    Good start, though. Very listenable. Keep going!

    Yeah I got frustrated doing the bends a little bit because I was learning the program while recording this and couldnt find what I needed. I had a click track as well as the backing track so I was mostly focusing on that but there are a few times where I was going off the guitar. Thanks for the tips.
