Thanks for the review.

I have always had the tendency to stick to neck positions. I need to work on diagonal scale runs to change positions.
Below is the signal chain for the recording:
Ibanez RG -> Tube Zone OD -> Delay -> Laney LC15 -> SM 57 (close to grill, 3/4 way between center of speaker and outer edge) -> M-Audio FastTrack -> Audacity
The backing track is exported from Guitar Pro and mixed post recording.
