    I know these charts are far beneath many of you, but for a mixing noob like myself, I've skimmed through several and this interactive chart is the best imo:

    Charts like that can be very useful...providing you only use it as a starting point and use your ears to get the sound you want.
    That's what I do. I drink and I know things.

    That's the stage I'm currently in. Starting off using tips on which frequency ranges to adjust, then hopefully my ears will be trained to be able to intuitively react based on what I hear

    Haha I'm glad you figured it out. Originally I wrote "click on the picture" but for whatever reason the post didn't work, so when I reposted it, I forgot to mention that the photo was linked.

    In any case, I'll update the post, thanks

    These are decent reference points if you're not quite experienced with your frequencies yet. They point out some of the more common frequency buildup spots. Of course, these are all ballpark guesstimations but it'll point you in the right direction.

    I also like THIS set of notes. Has been very handy as a set of guidelines.
