Just had a listen to this and it sounds pretty nice as it stands.
You could probably clear out the low mids a little to improve clarity,
but don't overdo it or you'll lose too much warmth.
The vocal drops in and out a bit, especially early on (I think it's
probably the lower register bits that are most affected). I guess it'd
probably be better to automate the volume rather than compress, although
some light compression mightn't go astray. The guitar has a tendency to
overpower the vocal as well, but it might be okay once the vocal level
is higher, but if not, maybe EQ the guitar a bit to reduce the clash.
The main guitar solo (from 3.10) needs to be more upfront I'd say, lose
a lot of the reverb and it'd be a lot better. Perhaps use some delay to
make it big without pushing it into the background like the reverb's
doing. It's a bit thin sounding as well and the level a bit inconsistent.
It's a pleasant sounding piece, nice and mellow. Nice playing and the
singer's got a good voice. However, with not being able to infer any
emotional intensity from the vocals, it all sounds a bit flat, on the
same level -- the piece could do with some contour to it, a sense of
building and releasing in the music.
