Hi Carl,

What a lovely haunting melody - fantastic!

I can easily see this as a a film score.

Also very nice guitar playing.

I would like to hear more.

Best Regards
Nigel

Ah, the kind of melody that makes one close eyes and sway the head with a very content smile. Well done, Carl. Good production, too.

Your playing blends well with the BIAB track.
There seems to be a bit of mid mud build up that isn't too bad but with the added fx it's "cloudy".
Nice.

Carl, you are an excellent multi-talented musician. I loved this piece. I just closed my eyes and let my mind wonder. Super mix!

Two thumbs up

Hi Ray, thanks for your constructive comment - what you called 'cloudy mids' is probably the guitar swells in the background which I used as a 'pad' here & there with strings in other parts!
What you hear will depend on the speakers or headphones you use - I record & pre-mix on Sennheiser HD650 headphones, the final mix & Mastering is done on Genelec 8330A monitors/7350A sub! I'm in a tiny bedroom so that could very much affect any part of the frequency spectrum, including the mids?

As you no doubt will know, one of the great difficulties we all have when mixing/mastering is to make a track sound 'good' on most speakers - I'm wondering what you used to listen on Ray??

I'm no technical expert at all so it's also possible/likely that I could improve the mix/eq etc?

Thanks for taking a listen!! Best regards, Carl

I really like Celtic music and this has its beautiful mood and melody. But besides your excellent playing, you have added an interesting and captivating chord progression to it. The mix is nicely airy. I enjoyed the band very much, although I was hoping to hear some pipes and Clannad type of vocals at least for a moment.

Hi Nigel, thank you for your very nice comments, the chord changes were perhaps a little ambitious for a celtic tune?

Please you thought it was ok - thanks for listening!!
