    and holy distortion batman... take those levels down man!!! take em down!!! I've heard less clips in a barber shop...

    those are the first two things to take care of.. then we can hear what the actual instruments sound like.

    Joro,

    A couple thoughts.

    On the intro, it might do some good to have two tracks of that git. Slap some reverb on one and pan right, slap some verb and very short delay on the other and pan left. That should make it sound alot better ( or some simular approach) Right now it sounds like the acoustic git is right down the middle and too overpowering. Get it out of the center and that will start to make room for the vox.

    The lead git is all but lost in the mix. I get the feeling that the tone is thin and undesirable as well but, can't make the track out well enough to tell. Your rhythm section is taking everything over. Try some panning and verb and if you can get the lead git to sit in the mix and be heard, then you should have a fair chance at doing the same with a vox track.

    Not the most concise or technical advice I know. However, it should get you rolling in the right direction. Let us hear it with the vox and some more attention.

    Hope that helps some,
    Theron.

    things sound a bit out of sync. A metronome should help.
    a good performance with decent miking techniques will always be easier than trying to fix things when mixing.

    Aside from that, yeah, the acoustic guitar is too powerful compare to other guitars.

    Thumbs up

    muuuuch better...

    Now I can hear that the lead guitar gets pretty well lost in the mix for the first 20 secs or so until it finally peaks it's head out at aboot 0:47.

    Unhappy

    I would say...drop the mids out of almost everything..Very harsh...And yeah, the timing is a little off.
    I only listened to about 25 seconds...my ears were bleeding after that...
    Peace out Bra!...

    Sorry Marty.....

    I re-mixed again....killed one track completely that I think was skrewing up the timing worse than the others....
    dropped levels and mids....add verb and delay (Thanks Theron )
    boosted the lead a bit....sorta choppy without the lyrics but...they will fit....

    Same link....
    left the old one...
    New one is called Boarder Road Re-Mix....

    how did I do?
    Thanks fellers for the advice....timing is my biggest problem I think....
    I just cannot hear the other tracks when I am recording...
    not even the click track....I gotta work on it....ya know?
    Thanks again guys...

    Given that it's a 4 minute instrumental, I think you need to do a bit more with different parts to keep the listener's interest. A lead guit part came in at ~2:30, but I wanted it sooner. The lead was back in the mix and somewhat difficult to hear. The part was nice, however, and enhanced the song nicely.

    I would experiment with some EQing on the electric rhythm part. It seems to be competing somewhere with the acoustic (and losing).

    Keep it up...
