A Jam -- Let me know your thoughts :)

YouTube - A Jam Session in D Major

Now that I graduated and have no job, I have some time to fiddle with the guitar. Let me know what you guys think I know there's sloppy parts... I was just having some fun =)

I enjoyed it! I liked how the chord structure basically stayed the same, but the melodies and stuff were always changing around and playing with each other and stuff. Kudos!

Lacked enough semblance of a melody in general to keep it interesting. Phrasing is pretty repetitive. Quite adept at moving up and down scales in time, but there's not a whole lot there.

But you hit the right notes, and stayed in time. Which is always important...

Next step is to listen to more music, and integrate more interesting phrases and structures.

You have a pretty good sense of rhythm and timing.
The lead work was nice, albeit a bit safe, but there's really nothing wrong with that.
You played all of the "right" notes.
The only thing I would suggest is what Rainer. mentioned: adapt more lyrical influences into your solo playing. More than just picking notes, give attitude to the notes and the spaces between them.
Maybe check out some of Jeff Beck's solo instrumental work. I suggest the "Blow by Blow" album.

Overall, nice work.

Thanks, Dave! Your positive feedback is very encouraging to me =) I knew it was gonna be a "boring" song when I posted it...

I'm working on trying to be more melodic and stuff I've been working on another song that a friend and I were messing around with...hopefully I can post that one soon It's one that I know has more of a lyrical feel...since I'm putting together the lead part
