Getting a bit lonely in here.

Hi,

I have been busy too... I did try some drums, and will try a few other things over the weekend. This week I'm babysitting my 4yr old, who has a nice tummy virus.
And installing gutters... right as the rain is starting to come down... it's a close call.
Next week I'm starting to mix at least 3 albums, on after the other, so I will definitely give you whatever I have on your song before then.

Cheers

Billy, thanks for your take on this song.  i enjoyed what you've done.  

Here's some notes I'm taking as I listen:
Intro sounds good.  I like where the drums and bass come in.  Bass sounds a bit muddy????  Mind you, I just moved into my new studio, and this is the first mix I've heard in here.  But in this room, can't tell if the bass is just too loud or needs some EQ.  Drums sound pretty roomy, mostly the snare.  The delay panned wide on the B/U vox with some kind of saturation added sounds cool, but I think the B/U vox need a little more substance in places..  You've done something to the piano towards the end of the song, doesn't sound as natural as I remember from the original take.  Sounds almost like an electric piano.  Did you put something on the piano?  I like the electric guitar part you added, but I think it, the drums, and the bass should cut out for the outro, probably right after the last "home".  I like just the acoustic and piano on the outro, just like the intro.  To me has a more intimate feel.

If some others could give some feedback on the bass in this mix, tell me if you agree about the muddiness, or bassiness.  I'm trying to learn this new room, and new monitor set-up.  

It might be fun if you would post the stems you've added so we can all mix this as we go.

Thanks for taking the time to do this.  This is really fun, and something I"ve never done before.

No, don't have the added tracks up yet.  Hopefully they'll get posted so we can all mix it up.  Working on the guitar tabs and lyrics for posting now.
