Haha, it was my idea ! 🙂 I'll have some spoken words in my mix too 😉
I am pretty sure, the end of the solo was not in "original" files (that Eddie van Halen commemoration slide 🙂 ).
If it were my mix, i would try to become more power in the lows. It is very airy and it isn't a compliment 🙂
I would also set the vocals back for more balance. But as usual, it is a matter of personal taste.
Another nice one Craig, you have no fear to produce in unusual way and i like it !
