Paul's first demo (Flight of the Mongoose) was posted by him on Guitar.com and also by a Guitar.com contributor (thanks!) on to Petrucciforum.com. Here is a selection of comments from posters in those discussion forums......
- that was pretty impressive...
- i like it. i like it a lot
- that seriously rocks! though, if i can make one criticism, it's the vibrato... oy! haha! but seriously, that's some awesome playing, and more importantly, really cool songwriting! wowza!
- That was awesome! I can't really hear anything bad about his vibrato. As long as a player's vibrato is consistent, one can't say it's bad/good, only if you like it or not. Apart from a couple of bad bends, which you never hear players like Yngwie do, I don't have anything negative to say... What I mean with a bad bend is not that it's necessarily out of tune, it's just that rushed bend I've noticed lots of unexperienced guitar players do.
- Very impressive..... I think that he must have played another instrument before guitar..... if not even more impressive....
- This guy is really good! He will be the next God out there if he gets a break chance for it to happen.
- Wow! that was great! i wish i could play that clean & fast!
- That is amazing! Great tune!
- the shredding and cleanliness was exceptional for 2.5 years and 16 years old.
- only been playing for 2,5 years?? thats amazing!
- Sweet song!!!
- the only thing that I see needs work on is his vibrato. And I'm not sure I believe that he's only been playing for 2.5 yrs.
