I think the acoustics could come up in the first section.
That sounds like the particle reverb on my zoom pedal : )
ok moved to the mastered version now-acoustic more in the mix i think it could come up still
I like the place the vocal sits in the second version much better
I would have more distinction between the parts-the chorus is halfway over before you realize it started
where's the tambourine?
The second vocal in that 2:10 ish section sounds too much like/seems louder than the first-i would try to make them a little more distinct
I really like the song and the vibe-good singing-and nice difference between the first post and the you tube vid.
