    Here's mine. I never heard the original or any of the other mixes of your cover until after I did my mix.

    Ha, thanks. Keeping the momentum going is a bit of a challenge with the arrangement. You should check the other mixes.

    Thanks for the mixes BoulderSoundGuy and Toveco. It's nice to hear the different approaches different people take.

    It's also interesting to see that most mixers felt like it needed something more added into the 'moment of silence' bit near the end (just before the final "And it's one more day up in the canyons..."). Maybe I misjudged that pause.

    That's an interesting comment about the momentum.... any comments/tips/what would you have done differently?
    Did it build and fall too slowly?

    I'm always looking to improve for next time.

    Anyone else?

    It was more the slow tempo and sparse arrangement. My bias for rock music probably contributed. I like mixing more upbeat stuff.

    Listening back I can hear things I could improve. The vocal sits on top of the mix a bit more than I like. I think the solo could be louder, closer to the vocal level. That's why I like to leave a mix alone for a while and come back to it, it gives me perspective.

    I like that 'moment of silence'.

    After going over it 100 times, here's my remix. Minimalist..

    This is a nice song. Wish I had written it.
