Well I have now completed my first ever song that is written by myself.
I couldn't have done it without all your advice and help.
Feeling stoked!!

Checkout the Simon's Song title in this forum and you can see the journey of improvement you all helped with.

I think it sounds good. But there are some parts where I couldn't quite make out what the vocals were saying.

 

Squeeze box sounds good. And drums have more definition.

Nice song Gary, congrats on finishing your first own written song! :)

And remember, everything doesnt have to be perfect at once. You will surely see progression over each new song you do. What im trying  to say is... Dont be afraid to call a song finnished, even if you know that it could sound better.

Thank you all for your comments.
I have remixed the above.

Yesterday after talking to me son that my music has quite a bit of plate reverb on it.
Then it was quite an eye opener as I am influenced by 80s-90s music..  which in those days had loads of reverb and bells in it   🙂
When I mix other peoples music I dont do it...  how strange is that!!!!

So I tried to mix this one with less reverb.
Also the acoustic guitar is panned central n the first few bars then I move it out to right when all the instruments kick in.
Does this give it more space?
Thanks again for all the feedback appreciated.

Sounds OK here @garybrun though those clunks at the start and end are a little disconcerting.

I didn't notice it when I exported the song..
Not sure if its Bandlab or Sonarworks that has done it!!!

It is just like someone has switch on a Mic and then off at the end.

Yes I hear it now.
But there are no switches... I think I have had this problem before when exporting...  I think its the Sonarworks Plugin.

I enjoyed the song - your lead vocal works well with the song.  The mix sounds good to me.

I didn't hear the clunks - did you remove them?

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for listening.
I have just exported the song again and removed the first glitch.
I will be adding a new mastered version soon...   I've tried a professional guy and will let you all now when its done.
Very exciting to see what a professional can do.
