There is a pan that happens too early which I noticed as I posted this last week. But other than that, any advice would be greatly appreciated. . .

Great voice there!! Now......

1) The vocal track needs to be pushed out in front a bit in spots and needs some EQ meat and body. The bass REALLY needs a push to anchor this work. A marked push. Tis' lacking noticebly.
2) Kick drum MIGHT need adjustment (amplitude/skin) in the mix when the bass line is in proper balance/amplitude. Only ears will tell when you get to this bridge.
3) Overall brittle sound here. Needs warmth and presence, notably in the gee-tar department. Waiting for any subsequent follow-ups! Great effort! ---LT

I agree with Lee. The bass guitar is lacking the bottom end to anchor the mix. I think if you get the bass guitar in there the right way it will also balance the brittleness that Lee speaks of. Remember, this is just an opinion. I think your definately on the right track. :)

Seriously guys, thanks for the input! I was having a problem with my mixes being too muddy and I think I went a little crazy with cutting the low end on this one to get things more clear.

I appreciate the advice.

Bass. Kick. More please. It's a loverly bass line and everbodoy is right. It would balance out that forehead tappin midrange. :lol: 3K down a little perhaps. More warmth.
Nice work. :wink:
If it grooves record it.
