Just wrapped up this tune, been working on it for a few days. Give me your feedback on it, I don't think it's done yet and it definitely needs vocals. Give it a listen and let me know what you think.

My vote would be for the hellraiser as it has higher quality components. Spend a bit more, get a lot more guitar:

Depends on the context. Definitely a lot of minor pentatonic, but in actuality - I blend the aeolian and dorian scales together. If I'm playing in a major blues context I'll throw Mixolydian mode, minor pentatonic, dorian, aeolian and major pentatonic into a blender and out comes music.
Stop practicing solo stuff and really start taking rhythm playing seriously.
If you know your major scale then you should be able to harmonize all 7 chords in the scale.
Start there, mess around with the progressions.
Wow, I'm looking at some of these features on Logic. I have a brand new Mac Book Pro and I haven't even thought about using it for recording.
This is making me think twice.
I can't believe how easy it is to replace or double drums.
