I think you really nailed the bass tone. Didn't notice the vocals too out front, but the harmony vocals crowd the melody every now and then. As always, IMHO!
But man, be careful on those dang stairs!!!
yep, on the lead guitar, both parts were played at the same time and I have no independent level control at 0:58 and 1:42. By the way, the reason for the simultaneous parts is to be able to do the song live on stage. So, until we record those separately, I don't have control unless I do a little high part patch to augment those parts.
The bass part was my contribution, so it's good to know that is okay.
Re: vocal harmonies crowding....
Yeah, yesterday when I installed these, I kept pulling those levels back more and more until you hear it as it is right now. I need to get the whole vocal thing more homogeneous and time aligned in a few spots where it is slightly rushed. I might be able to get to it today and trust me, the stairs are not going to win the day! I'm determined to move forward.
brookdalebill & fendrguitplayr, thanks for your kind words!
