Think about your solo in front, make a good build up. It's too sudden here.
Don't get me wrong, some nice chops there, but the structure of your solo could be a bit better!
i agree. i was told to keep it short (my solos tend to get a little long). i modulated into the triplet feel, and went into that 6/8 afro-cuban (with double bass underneath, lol). throwing a bunch of styles into a food processor, and see what happens. :)
