Maybe knock the guitar down slightly during the acoustic guitar part; his vocals seem a touch quiet in comparison. Just wondering why the guitar and vocals are panned the same; centre? No problem with that, just think the song needs more width, especially during the acoustic part.

I get really bad crackling/popping on every snare and bass drum hit. Drums are peaking? They're ok once they start fading out.

I really like this, the song in itself and the singing is top noch, would have liked a dryer guitarsound though, and as said before the drums are horrible every basdrumhit crackles/clicks!!!

Great song, excellent vocalist (was it you singing Mbuzz?). Guitars have too much, too long reverb on them. A short room type reverb would maybe make them more present. And they need a bit of low end or low mid cut to make them less boomy. Or maybe try a diffeent mic position, this one sounds like it is too near the soundhole, emphasising 'warmth' too much at the expense of clarity. Two mics strategically placed might bring out more sparkle. Or even a different, harder or thinner plastic plectrum - this sounds like a mellow nylon one. Vocal needs to be more upfront, less reverb or less bottom end on the reverb - in the present mix they sound distant and drowned by the freqs that the guitars are producing. The drums as everyone has said, are terrible due to awful popping/clicking. No idea why, as the few tracks you have mixed there shouldn't take up much CPU. But please don't take any of this as criticism, it's a lovely song, beautifully sung and very enjoyable.

Any chance of posting the individual tracks somewhere please? Consolidated. OGG format ideally, but .wav should be OK size-wise as there are not too many tracks making up the song. I love to have a go at mixing other peoples' stuff. It's a fantastic way to learn. WWW.4shared.com is pretty good for storing stuff for people to download.

Cheers for sharing your song, I emjoyed it very much.

Wow! Technical stuff aside (you may have heard my demo so that could be a good thing!) Loved the vocal and the composition. Excellent lyrics. Okay, obvious Chad Kroeger parallels. Yeah, I'd have taken the heavy effects off the guitar and maybe compressed it a bit more. Drums were good, again, nice composition. Can I be in your band ;o)

Been away for a while guys ! , the gtr is a Godin direct in so no mics !!! ( sounds like an Ovation LOL !! ) as I said this is just a quick dirty no time no thought song structure piece.
We are going to redo it from scratch when we have a chance

And YES you can be in my band Beami !!!!
In fact maybe some collaboration around here would be fun

As I said I fucked up the MP3 101 DUHHHHHHH

Thnaks
Guys
