A new Instrumental musician.

Hey guys, I am an aspiring instrumental musician I have been playing guitar
for 12 years now and I have been recording for about 2 years. I have just finished
my first CD and I hope you like it. You can also check out my free mp3's and
lessons on my site. If you have any questions or comments just let me know.

Not my kind of thing, the backing tracks sound very MIDI electronic, is it a lesson CD? or a CD being sold to listen to? I can hear lots of scales going on.
But good luck with it.

It is not a lesson CD, I fixed the description on my order page hopefully it makes it a bit more clearer now. It took me forever to get that guitar tone, that sucks it came out sounding midi.

Edit: I updated my site so its more descriptive all around and has a pic of my CD. I some how forgot to put that up lol.

Sorry, I didn't get as far as any tracks. I went to your link and thence to your gear page and, both times, got one of those annoying popups that launches IE and slows my browsing down. If there's any chance you can stop that happening (my blocker usually does but it got round it), it's worth doing because it just irritates enough to click on the "X" and get out.

I shouldn't really comment without listening but a couple of things strike me that might be tone issues. One that you can't do much about is that free mp3 clips are often compressed and will sound worse to Joe Punter than they do to you on your own PC. Have you tried it from a work, college or cafe PC? It might come out worse than you expected.

It doesn't really help that your Ibanez goes through a multi-FX into the soundcard. Call me old-fashioned, but 2/3 of the tone goes missing; the amp and the speakers. It's much easier to hook up, of course, but I always insisted that I was miked up or, failing that, arranged some form of DI out of the power out. If you can get your hands on a valve-driven pedal to put into the loop, it could warm things up and make the tone less "all-digital".
