Overall sound feels natural and good to me, but something bothers me with the bass. Hard to pinpoint what. As if the bass ruins the groove in the early part of the song. After 0:25 band grooves nicely and from there onwards I have nothing to complain, but before that somehow the band don’t roll nicely.

Should the bass be compressed more or what? I don’t know….

Thanks for feedback. Tried to fix the bass. Hope it's better now.

I think it rolls better now.
You also added 5db to overheads? I wonder if it's too loud snare now, as it's played so softly and but still beigns to mask string instruments. Genrewise this is very old time country, I guess.

Hmm, don't know what happened. Opened the session today and all the levels were messed up. Readjusted them and updated the file. Maybe Santa came really early this year and did some tweaking too.

Lol that's hilarious.. I believe the vocals are too hot.. droping them would make the mix much better.

Thanks for feedback. Did some further adjusting. Listening now I think the band could have arranged the legato backing vocals to follow the 'Silent Night' Christmas carol more closely. It would have sunk in nicely. Smile
