    Nice track HeavyMusic! Some of mixing advice I would give would be to reduce the reverb on the drums. The dryness of the guitars and the reverb-ed drums don't mesh well. The drums also need some panning, so not all the parts of the kit are center panned.
    I like how you gave room for the bass if you wanted to put on in (which I feel this song could need). I enjoyed your guitar playing, and I can't wait to hear the finished project if you intend to work on it more.

    There's a real low end thump to the kick, and it's got that heavy room/reverb on it, too. Is the drum reverb the room, or a plug-in?

    Reverb reduced. I widened the stereo image of the drums, too. Only a kick and snare happening so not much other than the cymbals can be center-panned...

    The reverb is a plugin. It sounded really good in my headphones, but I did end up turning it down a smidge

    Totally. Andy Johns was the trailblazer of putting only the best reverb plugins on the kick drum. I point your attention to "When The Levee Breaks" by a band called Led Zeppelin.

    Put a Abbey Road EQ on the reverb - hi pass and low pass, with a notch, too. Don't need that low thump reverbing, really.

    Well the tones are okay to me. I'm not one who would listen to this style too long. I hear some very grating overtones on the guitar. The hook is catchy.
