I love the way Malmsteen or Jason Becker play neoclassical riffs or licks. I listened to their music deeply, and I found a little music theory hacks, and I used one of them (i-iv-V) to compose a short piece.

I wanna know your opinions about the piece.

The abrupt change of the harmonic rhythm at the end feels awkward, especially since the other voices drop out. i - iv - V isn't really that much of a music theory hack; it's decently standard, but makes for a great way to add a three chord (12-bar) harmonic structure instead of the typical 4 chord. I'm curious as to what you find "neoclassical" about this necessarily.

I actually found this structure in some licks from famous neoclassical guitar players like Yingwie Malmsteen or Jason Becker. This is why I called it neoclassical.
