    I wanted to add an update to my comment on the bass. The "mud" I referred to is only during that louder part that first kicks in around 1:00. And it's not so much that it's muddy exactly, it's just that when all the action kicks in, the bass loses a little of its "punch". It might just be a matter of a half a db or so, or a tiny little eq adjustment to help the bass maintain itself with everything else going on around it.

    During the quieter parts it's fine.

    By the way, I'm talking microscopic differences here that 99% of the world wouldn't even notice. It's just that I've been wrestling with a bass part all day on my own tune, so my ears are tuned into bass.

    Or maybe they're tired and "overhearing" things now. Could be either one.

    Great song. Your voice (style/tone) sounds really good on this one. I'd say it's good to go.

    I was listening to some of your other songs too; they're all dynamically interesting. It's great that you go beyond the standard pop "verse/chorus/bridge/verse/chorus all in under 2 minutes" sorta thing.

    Stunning musicianship all the way around. I tip my hat to both of ya. Awesome tune - totally pro.

    If you guys keep raising the bar on this board I'm gonna take up another hobby - maybe I'll start a radio show.

    Three thumbs up!! (great feature for reviews but makes playing the mandolin a bitch.)

    Nice work guys! Sounds great!

    I've listened about 5 times now and have done an A/B with an older version. It sounds a lot better with Tjarko's bass. I'd like to hear his fingers a little more. There's a lot of bottom in there. I don't if you really needed that boost at 125 - not that it was a huge tweak. I don't know offhand what frequency range brings out the right hand, but if I were mixing it I'd look for it and bring it up a little.

    Snare could use a little more pop. It also sounds pretty far behind everything else, like maybe it's heavier with reverb.

    Your lead guitar tone is impecable. In the work you do to change your guitar tone, make sure you don't lose that wonderful lead sound!

    Mix Update

    Bass Tweaks:
    -2.5db at 125Hz
    +2dB at 900Hz
    +4dB at 6Khz
    (Those figures pretain to the previous EQ settings, not the "flat" image.)

    Also, Tjarko warned me that he had over-compressed during tracking, so the louder parts got squashed a bit heavy, thus we lost some definition. The boosts at 6K I mentioned seem to have helped some, but I also raised the overall level in those sections by 1.6dB, which was totally necessary IMO. (Thanks Groucho, Freshears, and anyone else who pointed that out!)

    Snare:
    I took all reverb off the snare. The snare sound I'm using has a lot of sustain and doesn't seem to need reverb. (thanks Phil)

    And Thanks to everyone else for listening. Some very helpful ears out there and I appreciate your time!
