    Sounds good. If you don't mind a bit of constructive criticism I think you kind've lost the down beat a bit during the diad (double stop) climb. It may because (at least,it sounds like to me) you're playing both up and down strokes rather than all down strokes. My experience with playing triplets with both up and down strokes is that it's vital to know where you're at in the measure at all times because you can easily end up short changing yourself a beat or two, which is what it sounds like happened. At least to my ears.

    Good job. Nicely played overall.

    I went back and visited that part and you are right. It is kind of off kilter/wompy sounding. I remember getting to that point and just not feeling it and not really knowing what to do. Thanks for the constructive criticism.
