The Best Is Yet To Come

Recommended Posts

Hey Keith - I hope you are well .

I like this a lot - nice open mix. Arrangement-wise, I was waiting for the drums to come in earlier but that's a personal taste thing

I like the song. For me  less delay on the vocals would sound better. I feel like it fights with the delay on the keys.

I enjoyed the song, particularly when the drums came in and the tempo increased a bit!  I might agree with Kurt on the delay.  Perhaps playing around with the timing of the delay might result in it matching it a bit better with the keys.  However, having said that, I am a sucker for delay and reverb.  I have been a frequent abuser of them and so, I guess my comment should be measured against my abuse (lol).

Very nice work on this song.

 Great job ! I thought your vocals were Very good on this one. Maybe bring them up a db. I didn't think the lead guitar was shaky at all , but could be mixed back a little and back up at the very ending. I could hear and feel a delay problem , but for me  it was the timing of the delay on the Piano instead of the vocals. I really liked the cinematic feel you got here.   Enjoyed it  ..  mark

You've gotten good advice here on the mix, but, overall, this song has the potential to be a gem.  The lyrics are quite good, and if you make the vocal shine, this will be stellar.  Well done!

I think it's as good as it gets vocal wise Lynn, I've never claimed to be a virtuoso on anything 😄

Agree with wookie, great to listen to as the sun comes up.  You make real musical experiences from start to finish, which is refreshing.

I think this is my final mix on this, so thanks again for your comments folks. I've taken the delay off the vocal, added reverb and changed the EQ as I thought the voice sounded a little thin, unlike me 🤭

On percussion, I think "less is more" on this one but I've panned the crash cymbals and put in some drum fills.

I've also put a bit of melancholic string quartet over the previously solo piano bit in the middle. I think it's a huge improvement. I hope you enjoy it.
