Hey guys,

So I have this song that I wrote and recorded and although I think it has some potential it is missing some stuff. Maybe you give it a listen first (just a rough mix):

It's obviously missing vocals (I have some ideas but no way to execute them right now). In addition to that it needs real drums from the 2nd chorus on to the end and at least some hihat and cymbal fiddeling in the verses to get away from that "loop feeling". Also the ending needs changes so it doesn't sound so chopped off. Other suggestions are of course most welcome!

Here are some stem tracks for now:

I can also upload all individual tracks. There are many. Just let me know.



Here are the chords to this song:

Hey, would love to take a stab at this... I'm thinking adding some electric guitars in certain parts to give it more edge. What do you think?

Cool! I'm curious what that would sound like.
Would you prefer stem tracks or rather single tracks? There are a lot of tracks, some of them heavily processed so it will probably sound like crap when you first play everything.

Alright. I won't get around to it today anymore, I'll render it tomorrow.

I'd love to hear a slight delay (somehow 10-15% wet) on the guitar solo at the end. It should sound less "in your face" and more "inside the track".
BUT: that's my poor opinion :D, and I don't know the effect that you wanna give in that moment.

No, you're absolutely right! The solo is too loud and too dry. I just did not change yet it because more stuff is (hopefully) going to happen to the song/mix anyway  ;D

Recorded some real drums you can layer or whatever.  If you like them I'll continue.

Muted the other perc tracks in this.
