Although this style of music isn't what I'm into these days I did enjoy listening to the guitar work. Most people that self-proclaim their music to have a great solo or something are usually wrong and I was expecting this to also be one of those times. But alas, the solo was performed with very good technique. I began music by learning rock and metal and can play Racer X, Malmsteen etc stuff to standard so I know the specifics of what constitutes good technique.
I think that solos should be centered around the melodic structure of the song and that's my only criticism with it. I enjoyed listening, but it'd have been more if it contained more of the songs melody between fast note flurries (which I think should be there and is also part of what I want to hear and you didn't disappoint on that front.) Other than that from the (studio) Satriani style legato (his technique live is poor) to the precision of the bends and harmony are all spot on, can't fault the solo really in terms of technique. Very well performed, good going. The riff is cool too and also played how I want it to be played with the correct amount of palm mute for a punchy yet not dull sound. A lot of people get that wrong and of course it's also in the correct amp settings too.
