Yeah... thanks.... this is totally a BB project.... I think there was 4 lead guitar tracks and I enveloped them in Sonar X1 to pick and choose the solo.

This is currently in the mail to a publisher which specializes in holiday music.

I thought the bass was a little heavy. Other than that cool idea and nicely done.

Very catchy song, good vocals and a really good use of RT's. I think it's a good mix too, except for 2 things.
I agree with Josie the bass is too hot, but not by much,... and, I just kept wishing the drummer would go to the hi-hat on the verses, I think it would add a nice dynamic level change. But then again you may have wanted the ride cymbal throughout... I'm sorta of the school of: hi-hat on verses and ride cymbal on chorus & solo's, so take that for what it's worth.

Good Job!

Greg
