Default Never Got What I wanted (Rock)

A pretty simple rock song. It's not perfect. I know my voice doesn't really suit this kind of thing, but I'm happy with how my production is coming along.

i like the song!

i think the mix would benefit from some more highs from the kit (cyms/ohs/amb mics).

i like your guitar tone! kudos!

I think you're voice is great!

great energy!

Thanks! I'll have a look at the kit high end. I did low pass filter it in an attempt to get rid of the midi shine of it. But I probably over did it.

Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This I like!!!!
Maybe the 2nd voice in the 1st verse should be higher?
litte messy/busy ~1:30

Maybe go a bit crazy on the lead vocal (or the opposite)?
Never the less I really like this!

Thank you! Unfortunately people always tell me I should go for it more on lead vocals when I do rock, but unfortunately I just can't. My voice works well on soft songs, but on loud songs it sounds rubbish.

Surprised about the quietness on this thread. I really love this song.
The mix is below your normal very high level, but it's still great.

Cheers.

Well, I think that your vocal on this track sounds like you are putting in the required "go for it" feel, as for as I'm concerned.

Did you fix the high en fizzle on the percussion? I'm guessing not, but take that with a pinch of salt from me... I don't have a clue!


cheers

Thank you. It's realy weird for me that you are saying that, because I thought the song was just a random piece of crap to learn production, and it's the happiest I've been with the production of one of my rock songs. I think it sounds really well balanced. Maybe I'll think differently after having some space from it.

You are right I am putting in the required "go for it" feel. Especially in the verses. I imagined the verses sang quite relaxed, but when I do that it's hard to make it blend, so I kind of go over the top.
