Guys, need your opinion please....

Here'a jingle that I was asked to write and record for a politician in my country.

I used the gear in my sig, sang/played/mixed everything myself.

what do you think?

The vocals need more work, I want to add harmonies here and there so don't play much attention to the vocals only.

What can I improve about it? or is it solid?

The first thing that I really noticed is the guitar sliding in between chords/notes. It just hits you right upfront in the face in the mix. At first I was like, man what was the loud clunky noise?!?! Cut it right out where it slides, and crossfade.

Second, the vocals go out of tune. Grab melodyne, and tune it.

Third, Reverb/delay sounds a little overkill, combined with gain structure that slightly peaks and distorts when singing loud notes. Get the input signal so it does not peak, and then compress it to lower the dynamics, and bring up the gain in the mix.

Either than that, melodically it is great, and everything else sounds good.

These are just my opinions.
