    Other than some flutter echo the reverb of the room sounds fairly decent. Try just putting clouds over the 1/3 marks on your ceiling. I'm not hearing any obvious bass buildups.
    Overblown when the chorus kicks in. Lots of distort/clip going on.
    There are other issues, but I'll stick to mix issues since that's what you're asking.

    Thanks, that was what my ears heard as well. Nice to have confirmation! Feel free to point out other issues as well, but , as should be obvious, I didn't spend a lot of time editing this. The Chorus was a quick and sloppy afterthought. Reverb on the masterbus. I'm also using a chain that looks like this (2 tracks live take) SDC mic on vocals, Ribbon on guitar - presonus bluetube - $10 A/D converter - digital input on tascam us-144mkII - reaper.

    This is part of my remote rig that I'm planning on using to do some quick and dirty demos.

    I just meant the vocals were all over the place. High in spots, low in spots, quavery, etc. I just assumed this was a quick check and you didn't need that bit critiqued.

    You didn't like my quaveriness!!! Jeez,. I'd never even played the song before,.lol. when I started I noticed I slipped into a pseudo accent and didn't stop because I thought it was funny.

    Personally too much reverb on the whole thing. Sounds like your in a large tiled bathroom. I would bring some of that out .
    Sonar X, Les Paul, Marshall DSL40C, AD2, Rode NT1, Shure SM57, and Dunlop picks, and cheap egg shakers, and Nike Shoes.

    You've got a very soft acoustic guitar sounds going on. I think that a westerny song like this might profit from a guitar sound with more highs and bit less body.
    I don't mind the reverb, I'd keep it.

    it is a tad bright. the acoustic distorts the same way acoustic guitar distorts on tape. it's a nice, humbling sound.

    That was in the OP. I thought the line about room treatment meant there was no reverb added...maybe I'm wrong, but it sounds more like a poorly treated room than too much reverb. Like I said, it's got a bunch of flutter echo going on, which good reverb would not. You may be right about the tiled walls
