Really nice. Excellent mix! I just sat back and just enjoyed it. Nothing stuck out that I could hear. Great job.

Mark, laid back song on a laid back summer afternoon.  I absolutely love that ethereal cello. Abrupt ending but probably more to come?

Cool track my friend - liked it  a lot - i think the fade out at the end needs to be more gradual - does sound a little abrupt - that's it, and love the Cello!

Cool groove, which reminds a little of the Big Man himself John Martin on Cooltide. Nice bit of afternoon grooving. @mark skinner :)

Thank You all for listening and responding to this post . I did a mild remix and tried to smooth out the fade better. I didn't have much material to work with at the ending , so I started the fade earlier. My final mix faded slowly and smoothly to silence , but sounds like Sound Cloud boosted and cut it short , but it still sounds better to me.    Thanks for the advice..     mark

This song had a very cool and relaxed vibe to it - and the mix sounded smooth to me - nice job.  

Also, the nylon stringed guitar sounded quite good in this.

Very   nice smooth jazz Mark.  The mix came out  really well on headphones and loved the cello work. Did you mic the nylon guitar?

@Mesh The nylon is a Godin LaPatrie Hybrid with a piezo and built in mic , plugged direct in . The neck on this one is Fantastic and not your usual fat wide classical style. Lots of different tones with the eq and mic blender. This was a $175. craigslist find in perfect condition with a thermally protected case.  I was lucky to grab this one before it was gone.    mark

Very cool and nice deal as well. You got a beautiful tone on that track and inspired me to record my Takamine (classical acoustic/electric)….I don't have soundproof  studio to record in, so have to plug it in. If you don't mind me asking, what was your signal chain like (plugin wise) on this track?

Listening to this track again (while doing my work at home) :)

Thanks @Lynn , that was quite a compliment and always my intention when composing. This one just happened to easily work out . @Mesh There was absolutely Nothing special done. All tracks used Sonitus eq and reverb and sent directly to master. Hot spots were tamed using cut and fade. Everything except the cello was direct in.  No other effects , even no pro channel. Exported and used basic ozone on it. This isn't the way I normally work , but this was the "different" thing I tried for this one ..    moving on , "Thank You" to everyone ...  mark

So this is what they mean by "less is more". :)

You did a great job Mark!

This is very, very nice. Relaxing, and with enough going on to maintain interest.  Really enjoyed it.  Also, the mix is clean and detailed, and came across as very three   dimensional to my ears. 

A great listen, all around.
