I thought it was pretty well done.....with just a couple nit picks. The bass is too muddy for sure. It needs a little more "growl" to fill out the character of it. The guitar licks are fine to me. It sort of reminds me of that Johnny Rivers song "Secret Agent Man". I know...that's really reaching back but it's a song that stuck with me for the flavor of the guitar sound. I think the hard left panning of that guitar is a little much though. Nothing on the right offsets it until the organ really comes in. Nice tempo and hook.Thanks guys, yeah, beagle, I can see how the licks could get a little much.
The lead guitar sticks out too much.Any mixing advice here...
It's the first song here if that link doesn't work:
Thanks for your advice
Nice to hear that you used some outboard gear. You used it nicely because I guess I could hear some compression, but not like, too much, so its subtle. I dont think the bass sounds as bad as you said! To me its fine!Thanks Molena yeah the bass in and of itself is ill defined which is annoying. I'm still working on the holy grails of great bass tracking and great acoustic guitar tracking. I don't find it easy for either. The bass, electric guitar and all vocals were recorded through a UA LA610mkii. I used a Daking Fet 3 on the 2bus to compress by about 2db or so and to raise overall level. There wasn't much processing on tracks really...except for compression, eq and reverb.
Thanks a lot for listening. I sure appreciate it.
Yeah they are a bit loud - but if you distorted them a bit that would help. It's an interesting mix - it might benefit from bringing the rhythm up louder too.You mean the guitar solo, the noodling licks or both, Panpate?
Mickster...yeah I agree the bass is ill defined, unfortunately.
