this is pretty cool. I love that you tracked with a Guitar Hero microphone.

Listening in my office. I'll check it out in the studio tonight

In some moments, especially in the second 19 20 21 22, I hear something that seems to stumble between the string and the rhythm. It's me? Maybe it's too little human quantization?
Apart from this doubt of mine, I liked the sound of your work.
The mix of a string so repetitive with the appearance of wind instruments in that tessitura gives air to the sound and your voice is clear and well defined.
The rhythm is very catchy.
What else can I tell you? Everything is improbable but I liked it as it is.

I gave this one a listen on my good Beyerdynamic headphones. They seemed to be telling me that your low frequency instruments could use a bit of low end fortification.

Listening now on different headphones and I still think that way.

I really like what you did with this production, btw. You went in some different directions as the song progresses and it really works.

Great tune. The vocals fit in very well here. The bass seemed a little light for this genre. Maybe a slight bump in the 80-150 hz range with a small Q. I'm guessing at that range. You might need to play with it. I use this plugin for monstrous bass- https://www.bozdigitallabs.com/product/bark-of-dog/

The synth was nice toward the end.

I really liked this job
I find it very modern and with very good taste.
The only thing that I would put to that arrangement, would be a real drum beat.
Congratulations  ::thumb::

Hey @Jon 
it sounds good!
I really dig your vocal delivery!
That section at 2:00 is crazy cool!  8)

I think the bass needs to be a bit harder though I can hear the impact it has dynamic wise where it comes in harder in places already. Decent tune.
