Thanks for listening, and thanks for the comments.. I will continue
tweaking :)

What were you thinking I could cut low-mids from?

HI Everyone,

Here is a song I recorded with a friend of mine who is a Nepalese
singer, and one of his friends who played the guitar and bass on the
track. It has taken me ages to get round to finishing it, because I was
having real troubles coming up with some drums that fitted the song OK.

This is the current version, mixed in Mixbus. I would appreciate any
thoughts on the song, and also the mix.

Hi

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 pro=
bably the lower register bits that are most affected). I guess it'd pro=
bably be better to automate the volume rather than compress, although some =
light compression mightn't go astray. The guitar has a tendency to over=
power the vocal as well, but it might be okay once the vocal level is highe=
r, 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 t=
o 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 inconsisten=
t.

It's a pleasant sounding piece, nice and mellow. Nice playing and the s=
inger's got a good voice. However, with not being able to infer any emo=
tional intensity from the vocals, it all sounds a bit flat, on the same lev=
el -- the piece could do with some contour to it, a sense of building and r=
eleasing in the music.
