This is a song I wrote and recorded in my home studio recently. It was done with a PRS CU22, Carol-Ann OD-2 100 and a Mesa 2x12 slant back cab with 1 EVM speaker. Mic used was a Sennheiser e609. The mic was plugged into a mic pre on a mono channel of a Mackie Onyx mixer and sent via firewire directly into Cubase recording at 32 bits. Track FX used after recording were compression, reverb & delay. No EQ was used on the track.

I'm not totally commited to the mix on this song yet. I'm wondering if the guitar level needs to come up some. Does it, or is it at a good volume level?

Thanks so much all for the positive words. It's extremely rewarding when a jury of your peers likes what you've done! So far we've got 3 that like the guitar level and 1 that thinks it needs to come up a bit. Any other opinions are welcome. Guitar loud enough or does it need to com up in the mix?

I "almost" think its too loud, but only because its right up there in your face, so to speak. I would leave it alone, FWIW. Nice tune and tones on all the instruments. Great job!

Thanks GAT. I've read many of your posts on TGP and have always respected your opinions.

Very nice. At times I wanted the lead guitar louder in the mix, at other times it was just right. That guitar sounds like my ES-335 when driven hard.

Great track! Nice tones and feel. The rhythm track is awesome, and your restraint was perfect, as its would be easy to want to overplay on this style of music. Well done sir.

Really great, Steve! That is a 'feel good' track, puts a smile on the face. I agree with GAT, maybe bring the solo down just a tiny bit...just a touch. Nice tone and fine playing.

levels need adjusting, you need to hear more rhythm section to pop hearing the lock with bass & drums, keep the guitar at a reasonable level and boost for solos
