Teaching myself to mix - so this isn't like a final take but how does this sound in terms of a test mix?
I listened with ear buds and I think it sounds good. Everything is clear. Guitar is up front where it should be but not overbearing. Backing sounds good as well.
Nice job Andrew!
I like it.
The guitar sits well in the mix. Right where it should be for a tune like this.
OK so KiwiJoe told me that maybe I should pan the fingerstyle electric to the left - my god he has some good ears. He worked out what I had done in the mix just by listening... He's also given me some great ideas for further improvements.
@KiwiJoe Joe you are worth your weight in gold mate - thanks so much.
So here it is with the guitar panned over to the left.
Next steps is to perfect each track in terms of the playing and to add Dobro, vocals and banjo rolls to the fingerstyle track in a subsequent verse.
That sounds GREAT Andrew!
I'm happy to help if I can, mate. I figure with time and effort you're obviously putting in with the music you're playing, it deserves to sound as good on tape as it possibly can.I am truly appreciative for you kicking me along and teaching me some stuff. I'm super excited about where this is all going.
I'm doing some hard yards and watching as much material on the subject I can. It will only get better once I understand it all (as far as possible).
