    This tune is one of my bandmates, recorded a few months back. It was my first attempt at a live kit, and i dont think i did so well. Any advice/coments good/bad are most welcomed. The song is called "out to hurt me" http://www.nowhereradio.com/david/singles

    Definitely has a live feel to it. The drums are very far back in the mix and you can almost not hear them. That would be my only feedback -- get those things out front a bit

    Not a bad song. Sounds like a jammin' blues tune. It sounds like it was recorded live, which can be hard to do. The drumming sounds fine, but just hard to hear.

    Nice guitar playing throughout.

    Nice job just need to get those drums out a bit (unless it is just on my machine...I'm sure someone else around will give you way better advice than me)...

    Take care!

    Killer tune and playing my friend but I hear distortion across the whole mix. It may be on my end but this is the first one that's sounded like this today.

    This is definitely a killer song. There's something strange about the mix though. Like maybe it's too wide, not enough content in the center. I'm not sure. I'd like more bottom end on a song like this, and yeah, the drums could come up in the mix too.

    Hey David,

    Cool tune, some great lead playing and tones in there.

    The mix has an odd sound, almost like it phased, or that sound you get with a stereo expander. Thins it out, never found them much use on a whole mix. Not saying thats what it is, just what it sounds like.

    Singer sounds good.

    I hear the distortion as well, throughout the whole mix.

    The drum level isn't bad, more kick maybe, all the levels are close on the instruments, but that phazy aspect of the whole mix screws up my perspective.

    Catchy tune! Great guitar playing and sounds.

    I thought this was great. When I downloaded it, I wasn't getting the distortion.

    Decent song. As far as the drums, I had trouble hearing the kick and snare. The whole mix had a low level - it could certainly be brought up. I liked the singer and lead guit work.

    I heard a bit of distortion and/or hiss throughout. It had a live feel to it - almost like you're listening to the band from down a long hallway. I believe a song like this needs a solid bass part.

    Just thoughts... Trip

    Thank's guy's (each of you) means alot! As far as the drums go, i dont have much i can do about them, they were recorded in stereo..big mistake in my part. The distortion i dunno, but i'm thinking maybe it's because i'm running my mix thru an art pre to my soundcard, to much "sizzle" as sonus used to say. I'm going to take it out of the chain and see what happens. Thanks again guy's.
