Howdy Misha...

I struggled with both that you mentioned.
Although, I do like the deliberate spunk of the bass and don't mind it upped a bit on this one.
Harmonies can be tough and I can easily make them too loud.
I prefer them just under the lead vox mixwise but I could be off a skosh here.

I'll revisit later when I'm not hearing it in my head all day (and night) long.

Many thanks for giving a listen and kind comments.
Hope all is well with you/family.
