    Been working on this for a while, I think I'm happy with the sound, but I've heard it so much now that I can't tell!

    Feedback always welcome.

    Cheers

    Thanks for all your comments, much appreciated! I agree the drums could be a bit punchier.

    ac, it's me playing guitar on the track.

    Cheers

    haha ye i get tht all the time as well!

    reallly feelin this track mate got some skill there its true, especially like the guitar, adds a nice touch to it. as logikz sed musically this tune is sik man, but i just think the drums need more layers, especially on the cymbal end, try adding a drum and bass break over the top an then EQing it to sound right in the mix. lovely tune tho very impressive, keep em comin, make sure you post the finished product!

    Ha ha, didn't expect that response Count T!

    I'm in the process right now of brightening (is that a word?) up the drums. Will post the finished product.

    Thanks everybody.

    nice tune congrats the guitar is really nicely done - the drums do need beefing up abit and maybe a few more change ups with percs etc could be good??

    as far as your ears getting too used to the tune a couple of tips i use are listen to your tune first thing in the morning before you've done anything so your ears haven't really adjusting to anything like tv or radio (or the mrs!!) etc, I can guarantee you anything thats not quite in place will jump out - make a note and change - this only really works on the very first listen so if something sounds off then it defo is don't play it over and over to check cos it'll just start to sound right!! the other tip is to listen to it pissed or battered, again only the very first listen though!! see what you think!

    ez m8,
    have to agree with most people here. Really liking it. Great ideas. Need to sort the drums out tho, need to be bigger and more layers to em, but with a little more work think u got a really strong tune m8

    Agreed, the more I hear it now, the more I know it needs changing.

    The drums sound quite muffled. More high end and compression maybe?

    I'm having a play around as we speak, so I'll see what works best.

    Really appreciate this feedback!

    Thanks
