The outstanding feature of that track is the sexy searching lead guitar. If you think it isnt worth putting in or hiding behind everything else, work away.

LOL I thought you were saying to get rid of the lead guitar. I have to re-think this. I agree, the original has that lead guitar weaving in and out through out the mix. I broke a string and couldnt' finish the lead tracks so I'm not that happy with what's there so far. I have to go back and re-work this when I can pick up a new string.

Hi Great Cover
Its a timeless song & still sounds fresh today
if i have to nit pick, i think the kick is a fraction too loud & maybe you could put
a congas/percussion loop to give it that 70s swing
Otherwise Excellent stuff & well done

The track is instantly recognisable because of his guitar.

Pretty cool. I like your first mix. I'm predisposed to dig funk bands (played MANY years in several good ones). My personal take on the mix, I'd bring the kick down a bit or soften the "click" a bit. And I'd bring the lead up.

Thanks everyone for listening, you guys are a big help. I ended up with a final mix that has more lead guitar in it and I lowered the kick drum.
