    I'm listening on laptop speakers and overall it sounds good. I agree with everyone else, the vocals are a little buried by the guitars. Great guitar playing and good sounds by the way. Reminds me of Jason Falkner a little bit.

    Sounds very nice, well produced but maybe a little too wimpy. I'd like to hear some of those guitars really rip through sometimes but maybe that's just me. Well performed and very polished sounding. It could maybe use a bit more punch in the mids to give it more energy. That could end up being a mastering thing though.

    Fender Blues Jr. 1x12 tube amp
    Les Paul Jr. guitar
    One of the 3 guitar tracks may have been a telecaster, can't remember though.

    Shure SM57 Unidyne III model (old model before they were made in mexico)
    Chandler TG2 preamp
    Mytek 96khz AD converter

    not a whole lot of EQ, and I think I buss compressed the guitars for like 1db GR with the UAD-1 LA2A plugin.

    It sounds pretty close to how the amp sounded in the room.

    Its a really good song but I think using the time stretch really took away from the depth and clarity you could have gotten from tracking it the right way in the first place. Also there are a few points where the time is a little off and crazy idk if anyone else picked up on that or maybe it was just me having a flashback. The guitars in the beginning dont really come in on time with the drums, it kinda sounds weird.

    But it really is a good song. and a good mix at that. Fix the vocals its worth it.

    GOOD GOOD GOOD but the confessional vocals need a) de essing & b) something like the antress "analoguer" - close vocal setting to bring it closer - or maybe a blockfish setting.
    Doesn't sound Mayer to me - which is good 'coz I can't stand his sound.
    Well played & recorded.
    Good melody tooooo.

    I like this a lot, who's the band? Dudes' vocals in the beginning sound like Ben Gibbard, but not as a good.. a little bit like The Jealous Sound too. Great mix, man.
