Watched a few of your other videos, keep on shredding!

Particularly dug the original clip with the four-way splitscreen, do you have more of that?

Yeah I'm using some really cheap logitech speakers so the mix isn't great.

I do! There's a whole song I wrote back when I was 16 (12 years ago! Oh my!), but I've never been able to record it in good quality. I will someday! :) Glad you like it.

Hey ! I'm very happy to know you still play.
And you still do it great.
I remember you, you rocked.
And still do, apparently.

You knoooooooooow... I'm an asshole who likes to give his opinion, and we're all friends here on the Racer X board, so I'll be honest: your technique is flawless as usual, but being a Van Halen, classic rock fan, I prefer bright sounds. So the spin you took at giving it a heavier 2000's style metal version wasn't my thing /: All that fifth in the bass (I think it is) to every chord... lots of crash in the drums, and I think there is that Trivium style double bass drum triplet thing also... I just wish someone would play Ken's theme in a more classic bright style, with guitar tones and drum patterns more like Panama of Van Halen, or Surfing with the Alien by Joe Satriani.

Also: Ken's theme is an energetic song but it's written in minor (I think) and it has a melancholic feel to it as well, so emphasizing the heaviness kind of takes it away. I appreciate you did use a tempo that isn't too fast and enables the melancholy to be heard, but I think a tempo even a little slower would be better. Ideally, I'd wish Ken's theme sounded more like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXIGdD-Rbp8

Without the synths at the start, just heavier power chords with open strings like the big G with thumb on the low E 3rd fret, muted A string and B and high E string fretted at the 3rd fret; or the stretched A with pinky on the B and high E 5th fret, and not all the excessive lame solos. But the tempo is perfect and the overall style is good.

This one is also excellent:

But the tempo is way too fast for the melancholy to shine through.

Aaah... I wish someone one day plays it like I hear it in my head.

Anyway, pgmpower, you surely kicked ass, and it's great that you're still doing music and playing awesome !
I'm releasing my take on this song soon:

I was mixing it tonight.

Yes, that is a shame. OP seems to have taken the video down. :(
