    I'm typing as I listen with h/phones. onemore sounds pretty cool. Some bits of the high strings sound a little brittle. You lose too much of the acoustic when the electrics come in - try to balance all three as the electrics don't retain the prettiness. The power chording is a little "standard" but gets a breath at around 2.40. There's so much scope for you to play "nicely" as you do on acoustic with some filth underneath it. The song limps into "POWER BALLAD" land too soon to support the quality of the intro minute.
    Bummer - I was enjoying the acousticness of it. I reckon it'd be popular but it does become almost a hairmetal song.
    For my tastes I'd say go back & remix with the BIG guitar sound in the background.
    Good luck

    Well written power ballad. I like the vocals on this. Right up front...Nice acoustic part in the beginning. Nice tones and panning on the electrics. Drums are pretty good too. Cool solo at the end.....I'd be pretty happy with this...
