My version of this song - Never Say Goodbye
Hi to everyone

Here's my personal attempt for this song.
I wanted to keep it bright and atmospheric, with focus on the acoustic guitar. Then I heard that beautiful bright and snappy snare in the pre-chorus and fell in love with that, so I brought it pretty upfront as it seems to me it's giving a great rhythm and balance to the song.

However here's my mix, comments and critics are really appreciated.

RE: My version of this song - Never Say Goodbye
It feels pretty good. It's a little bright for my taste. Personally I like the lower sound that the side stick has during the verses over the brighter snare. It kinda fights with the vocals and acoustic instead of having it's own space. If it just had a little bit of that low mid body that the stick has it might fill out the mix a little more in the chorus.

I could use a little more vocal. The music tends to overshadow it. Namely, the piano. especially in the chorus. The vocal is a little nasal when he pushes. It's just his tone. If you could tame that it'd make the vocal be a little bigger.

Other than that there isn't much else that jumps out at me. It feels good.

I only have earbuds to listen and mix with at the moment. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.
