    Mix a rock song with blues theme...?

    Hi everybody.

    Today i have a rock song I would like for you to mix.
    The hardest part would be to excite the main voice and to "tame" the low frequencies.
    Theres a lot of guitar tracks.

    As always, feel free to do all kinds of weird things with it

    Heres my attempt:

    And heres all the tracks:

    Looking forward to your mixes.....


    Best regards

    Great little tune. Here is what I hear. Rhythm guitar to loud, there should be more ducking with the vocals (they sound great by the way, wouldn't touch them), lead guitar seems buried. Work on that (or ignore, that might be what you want). Vocals have a Kurt Cobain sound. Not an imitation.

    I personally wouldn't mix this as you really are pretty close to a great mix. I am not sure what could be done differently to improve what I heard. It is a straight forward rock song and those are for me hard to do anything creative.

    Cool tune.

    OK, I played. Good song. Weird working with one overhead. Never done that. The vocal reminds me of one of my favorite singers ever. Local guy Tony Medina. Look him up.

    A rough mix.

    First mix was drum heavy. Listened in my favorite place (my work van). Vocals and guitars were buried. I can't really do much with the guitar tone as it is. There is a flangey part that I would have not used so much, but it seems to work with the tune.

    I had some time to kill and could not get this song out of my head. I realized what the vocals were about. Got lost in the song...

    Hey seeking! I'm poking you in the ribs! lol!

    I think now listening back, I may have squashed it a bit much.. I'm used to mixing my own recorded tracks. This was fun tho.

    Send me more tracks seeking!

    Last post of last mix I will ever do with this tune. Great song. It inspired me to spend time working on it.

    Had a little free time and figured I'd give this one a go. Still a work in progress but feedback is always appreciated.
