RE: I'm learning mixing, would like to take some advices
Right out of the gate, I hear too much compression. There is pumping and ducking going on whenever there's a lot of low end energy (for example, low tom roles are causing everything to duck out). I would relax on the compression a bit and also, maybe, shorten their release times. Also, the low end is a bit too boomy and needs taming. The vocals are buried in the mix. I find myself straining to hear them. Otherwise, not bad at all for a beginner. You're on the right track for sure.

I don't have the time to listen right now but that's a quality user name.

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

I reuploaded edited version, tweaked here and there a little, think i'll move on to another track for now, take me a long time to mix. got really tired of this track)
