I posited that question knowing that you were going to mention those things. But that's really not what I hear when I listen. For the most part, you've got all the notes. Neither King nor Clapton ever played it the same way twice. Where you need to focus your work is 1) on the overall feel. It needs to groove and 2) you need to get your bends in tune.I hear all the mistakes! The slidey bit is not great. The second last section of the solo is rough, the final slide is not good, the timing is a smidge off in some parts.
It's also annoying that I've mailed each of those parts in different takes, but never all in one take.
But I agree, it's not a bad attempt,
On reading some comments here, I agree with the idea that it's as good as I can make it at my current skill level and if I keep up the practice and hit it again in a few months it will sound a bit better.
