Dark horses
Good song. Guitar solo sounds incredible. In other mixes of this song I heared strange things on acoustic gtr, bass and kick drum. I think that all instruments in my mix work fine. Only trouble I had was that bass gtr. I think that subkick and bass do not fight for the low end. Tell me what you think.

Hum... I haven't listened to the raw tracks and maybe most mixes I've heard have replaced the kick and snare, but your drums sound very boomy and have a big dose of a bad sounding room on them. Hard to get pass that to judge the balance of the rest of the instruments. The solo sounds very remote as well. What happens with your reverb?

kinda agree with the criticism from my perspective, blending the kick snare and bass alongside bringing out the toms from the oh track is very tricky. it is possible to have a heavy kick and heavy bass. On this one i tended to have lots of 50-60hz and lots of bite boost on the kick and then fit the bass through 60-100hz. Try turning up your bass and fattening the kick. The snare just needs a complete rethink. Use mostly the OH track then blend in the close mic, it sounds as though you've done it the other way round which has led you down a tricky path.

RE: Dark horses
In version 2 I should work on snare and fatten that bass.
