Hi all kitcheners,

Feel free to listen, comment, criticize, or re-post :)

Have all a good and safe day!

Hey Sebzzz - cool production here. It meanders along in a good way, good music to drive to I think! Nice little touches with guitars etc. I thought the drums could be made a bit more interesting a few more intricacy with the high hat/symbols and filler etc. Also its a subjective thing, but I always like a bit of a build towards the end of a song, or somewhere where it really builds into a crescendo then falling back. Its not a criticism, just what I like. But overall I like this, sounds good. Thanks for sharing!

Wow, thanks a lot, that's very constructive :)

I'm not completely sure what you mean, with the drums intricacy... I'm not really into drums, I'm more strings-guy :)
Would you add more hit-hat, is this what you mean?
...and more towards the end, to create this "crescendo" effect you mentionned, or was this a totally different topic?

Thanks anyway!!

Hey - I think just a few more fillers and a bit more variation on high hat and symbols but hey its a small thing. I was a drummer so I hear these things where other wouldn't! The crescendo point wasn't about the drums, more the song in general, but again its something I look for in songs, to build into something. Very subjective. Good song though mate, keep it up!

Nice work @Sebzzz   …. btw now I see it bzzz and the bees in your profile  :lol: ;D  … ha, ha I'm so dense. 

anyway ... the original version was not too shabby but, yeah, you made a nice mix out of it all. Cool arrangement.

Solid piece of work @Sebzzz  easy on the ears for a Sunday morning studio warmup. 😋

I agree with @Polestar about the drums and the build. It seems the chord progression has at least three distinct parts. Chorus, Verse, Bridge? It’s all with the same snare hit and orchestration.  Could use a bit of variety .... it was refreshing when the guitar with chorus effect from the intro came back... nice touch! 👌

When the Bridge comes It’s time for the snare to either drop out or at least do something different... 🥁maybe hit twice? To increase the energy?

On the build... you already have a fairly dense mix... might be easier (maybe better?) to subtract rather than add to create a build.

In the same way that the snare is a bit repetitive the rhythm guitar 🎸is as well. If you were to pull it out for some of the middle it would give the rest of the instruments more space... then when it comes back it will be fresh again and build the energy.

These are only suggestions... you may well find a better way to take this up a notch.💥

Looking forward to hearing it again! 😎
