Cover of R.B.N.C.S.F. No. 2 by Joe Stump - and greetings from Mexico!

Hey guys!

It’s such a pleasure to salute you all, i discovered this site some months ago and i think it’s awesome!
So much talent over here!
I’ve been playing electric guitar for 24 years, been self taught for a while, taken lessons from different teachers and sources as well.

I love neo-classical, death, prog, black, shred and thrash metal, as well as blues, jazz and classical music.

I’d like you guys to do me this one favor and check out my rendition of one of the hardest tunes i’ve ever learned and tried to transcribe note by note, all by ear, since there’s not any score or tabs for it:
I’m talking about R.B.N.C.S.F. No.2 by Joe Stump (the title stands for Ritchie Blackmore’s Neo Classical Shred Fest No. 2) from the 1997 Supersonic Shred Machine album.
I’ve spent like 20 years trying to get it done, and i still have some mistakes but i’m glad for what i’ve done so far anyway.

I’m also very thankful to Joe Stump, who has been such a great guitar hero to me as well as a very kind and cool guy, he actually handed me that backing track and i couldn’t be more honored for it!

Anyway, i hope you guys take a couple minutes and tell me what you think, here’s the link:

Thanks in advance! lml
