    preliminary mix.....comments appreciated...

    Hi fellas...
    This is a preliminary mix of the music for a new tune...

    My only disclaimer is that I am in big trouble with this tune....
    seems that I have over committed on collaboration for the vox....
    I am a piece of dung...a worthless, slimy, inconsiderate, piece of shit....what an asshole I am...
    lately...my luck, along with my judgement has been all bad...

    that said...
    please be gentle

    all kidding aside...good ears and mix comments would be appreciated...rip me a new one...thanks...

    P.S......real drums are also to come...hopefully with a vox track...
    I guess I need comments on the guitar sound more than anything else....thanks...

    did you use a compressor on the strumming acoustic? it almost sounds like it's overcompressed to the slightest bit of distortion.......just a bit.........it's hard to say if it's compression or something else, but I can definitely say I've heard similar sounds from myself after using too much compression......

    I'd like to hear it w/ the real drums and vox

    sounds pretty good.. at first I thought the acoustic was a little boomy, but I forgot about it as it progressed.. some of the lead melodys might clash with the vocal.. some sound a hair out.. real drums and vocals will make all the difference.. good toe tapping feel though, ya know?

    Very good lyrics Joro.

    The guitars sound a bit cripsy for this IMO. This should be as warm as possible without losing the details of the high end. I've read the lyrics and they only add to the need for warmth IMO. EQ might help, but if it doesn't I'd suggest retracking the guitars. Maybe just the rhythm strummed guitar. The leads should probably be kept at least a little brighter to sit on top.

    Very nice music man. Very nice. I think it just needs to be recorded and mixed a little more gently.

    Nice and beautiful.

    Hey, I don't need drums on this.

    O wait...I listened to Chasin' Sunsets. Duh

    Rhythm guitars could be warmer. Easy on the highs there. Bass needs more definition. And I don't mind the fake drums....

    Cool

    Hey, good to see something new up from you! Hope things are going well with you.

    Well, I am going to be really cheap here and say I pretty much agree with all that has been said.

    My key points:

    1) No definition on the low end
    2) Crispy highs on the guitars
    3) I worry about where you are going to fit a vocal melody with multiple guitar melodies. You may have pull some of those guitars in and out. Just a thought.

    4) Very cool start! I like the feel for sure.

    Looking forward to the completed product.

    I'm inclined to agree with Powder. I'd experiment with that a bit first. It sounds a little boxy to me. But it sounds like you'll have something worth working on here. It's a nice piece, and left me in a good mood.

    Thanks Fellas

    Powder I did compress the rhythmn guit so I will back off on that...thanks man.

    Sam I will definitely re-do the lead....not so much for sure..
    It sounded to boring without both in there so, I will work it around the vocal once that is done...thanks man...

    Tom Yes I will re-track in a lower warmer register and perhaps re-do the rhythmn softer...I see what you mean man...
    Thanks man

    Ped That's my pal Willie McCulloch doing everything on Chasing Sunsets...I am merely the lyricist on that tune...it is one of my favorites thogh...glad you liked it man..


    Skids Hey man
    I am cool....how's the family doin'? Hope all is well....
    A lot of the guys here can pump out a song a day....takes me weeks to develop them...ya know?
    I am gonna re-do the bass for sure and go for warmer tones on the lead as stated above...also gonna re-do the lead around the vox...Thanks for checkin' in man...my best to the familia

    Twist Cool man! I was going for upbeat...glad to hear that you felt that way....thanks man...


    Thanks again fellas,
    Joe

    P.S.
    Thanks for the star whoever you are lol!

    I would have to agree with the group. There is too much 200hz in the guitars.

    You might be able to fix this by re-tracking them and pulling the mic a little farther away or, trying a different microphone. It sounded like proximity effect to my ears.

    The tune itself was very pleasent and I liked the arrangement you have on it so far.

    Good stuff!

    awww man.. I like this. Smooth, well aranged, nice trottin groove, clean, and no overplaying anywhere. The drums sound good and dont have to do anything but their job in this and doing it well.These guys already talked about eq. All the picking is tight too. I still need to bring one on for you and haven`t forgot, just not worked out yet. Good song, if I were a singer I`d singin my butt off on this, it`s wide open for some good vocals.
