Not bad, you have good rhythm. But the leads need to be more expressive. Seems like your tone/gear could be hindering that. May want to invest in a Strat and Marshall JCM to nail the tone just right, but of course it's up to you to do your own thing....

Singing was mostly not in tune, some was. Are you playing in standard tuning? If so, dropping a half step down could really help with the vocals.

Cool overall.

I listened to Siva. I thought your singing was mostly in tune. Voice fell flat at certain little points, but I think overall you just have different voice/singing style which still fits well with the original composition of the song. (maybe the user was referring more to 'To Shiela' idk)

I also don't believe you need a Strat and a Marshall to do a better cover of Siva. :roll Your tone is your tone and you played the song well, although being a fuzz addict myself I'd love to hear you play through something fuzzier. :p

Overall... it made me want to play guitar myself! Good job.

Thank you guys! I'm not a good singer, my range is very limited and it's even harder to play these riffs and sing at the same time. I think To Sheila sounds nice, even though there are some spots where it's a little bit out of tune.

I'd like to buy a new distortion pedal. I've got Boss DS-1, but it sounds flat. I'm not sure if I should buy Big Muff or ProCo Rat..
