one of the few times
I've heard a guitar played with this tone at this speed played tastefully. And then the transition into the mellower, cleaner guitar....this is really, really well-thought out. I hear some doors in here (riders on the storm?), and your tone on the shredding parts reminds me of a less obnoxious version of ynngwie. Pro work!

You are one hell of a guitar shredder. I sure hope you play professionally somewhere, if not, the world is missing out. Awesome playing!

Love that sound!
Very satisfying tone you have there. I'm sure the toys help but you can here it just dripping from your fingers. Great!

It's not just the guitar tone....
...it's the guitar tone with those CHIMES...that really take me back, as with Michael, to Robin Trower...

I'm also a big fan of thunder....

I like that your shredding is always musical, and I also appreciate that you're good at contrast... It frames the incendiary moments well, I think...

This is all-around awesome stuff. Cool keys and drumming, super amazing guitar leads. 10s and downloaded!!! Oh wait...

Your playing always kinda reminds me of my favorite guitarists, but you've really got your own style.

Powerful stuff
This is awesome. Great playing, great writing. Love that intro solo.

Just curious if you are using a guitar synth for some of the keyboard parts? They sound great.

I agree with Mark. Amazing pick control.
