excellent arrangement. love the accordion.
I want to smear dirt, fretbuzz and fumbling all over the guitar.

Yes, the guitar’s definitely the least convincing part - maybe I should get the real thing out(after about 20 years!)

Yes. The guitar’s a lot better.

yea, the guitar sounds distracts from the compositional strength (!) of the arrangement. Did you compress the vocals? I could be dead wrong but they sound a little over-compressed to my ears.

btw, the arrangement is freakin amazing.

ok, third attempt is up now, and i think this might be it - better guitar sound, some EQ work and more subtle compression (using a multipressor).

Be good to know what you think - thanks for the advice.

No, fourth attempt now - surely that’s it!

not when I’ll have to chance to listen, there’s a lot going on as I’ll be traveling overseas this weekend, but I’ll let you know (eventually)

What i love about all of your mixes is that you keep trying different styles and it feels and sounds like you enjoy the process.

Some of the previous points re guitar are valid but it does not detract from this great version.

thanks, what’s great about this site is having the chance to try out new things - and get feedback from some fantastic mixers such as yourself.

I wish I could hop in a time machine with this track and substitute it for Clapton’s “Tears in Heaven” in the”Narc” soundtrack; nothing against Clapton, but this is far more appropriate as dealing with the consequences of bad decisions… very moving work

Thanks D - I’ll pass that on to Eric ;)

Superb strings’arrangment. I love this way that you play cello. Acoustic sounds fit in always perfectly with her voice..Great song..!
Ps: Not really understand your “fixation” about this guitar..! But it seems that the mix is still better. I just start to work on this song and realise, more now again , how much your work on the harmony is really..really..Impressive.

soft and soothing…even if the lyrics wax melancholic…really beautiful…always like to hear the squeezebox too………….
