I'm going back into the track and comping everything even more and to manually remove any long ssss's at phrase ends wherever I can find something I missed.

 :ok: :ok: :ok:

I suspected you had already paid attention to this aspect. I tend to be over conscious of sss's so maybe @Dutchbeat is right. Hey...he could be. There's a first time for everything, right?  ;D ;D ;D

Hi @Jurgen ... thanks. I'm making only a lyric video at this point.
And yes EVERYTHING is compressed!!!!!! Many times!!!!!
 :D :D :D
I can't record a real kit. Will plays e-drums to trigger acoustic samples.
The lead guitar is Tom! He is my former student now my friend. Majoring in music at the university and member of US Army band.

@Leonard Scaper , @Dutchbeat ... you guys are killing me!  :bonk:   ;D. More SSSS ! Less SSSS!  :doublebonk:

The lyrics are just brilliant so well done for that!😄👍🏻 Music sounds great. Singings  lovely, but imho I wanted it thickened up a smidge in the chorus, just a touch of doubling. I just felt it needed some reinforcement to lift it more there. Some harmonies perhaps? I do like the backing Vox, Im just greedy and wanted more.😋😆

Great job guys!🎶🙌🏻🎶😄

You have done a neat job with this. The build is terrific and then the breakdown gives back some space for an even bigger build.  Really clever, I like. Might steal that double build idea ;) it really worked for me.

@Bill from November Sound ,

'Why walk if we can run?' - I simply love that line!! :) <3

I love the atmosphere embedded within the song, I feel it evokes the feelings of happiness, adventure and youthfulness :) I really enjoyed listening. Great work! :)

Thanks for the "mention" @Rachel_D    I didn't even know people were still listening to this.  :)
Thank you for your kind observations about the music! Maybe giving me more credit than I deserve but, yes, greatly appreciated.  :)

Hi @LostBoy I appreciate the kind words! The tracks are there maybe just need to be louder in the mix to match your taste in music perhaps? Lead vocal doubled on both sides. Lead vocal with high compress "hiss" track in places and 8Ba in places to thicken it. Plus 16 tracks of background vocals. Maybe some of this could be louder.  ???  We don't really do harmonies of the melody for a couple reasons . 1. kind hearkens back to a different decade (cool and all . just not for us) 2. we want to be able to approximate our music when we perform live. 3. we have Melissa singing . and Will & I can't add much to that unless it is way, way, way in the back LOL !!!  ;D

Hi @seriousfun  .... very nice of you to say. Hadn't really thought of this as a special technique a "double build"? That is cool but again you might be giving me more credit than I really deserve here.  :)  Thank you!
