The guitar sound too DI'd - can't you bring in the shoulder mic more? I think the sound is a little to dry for my taste, I would like some room feel and excitement.

I think the guitar to the left is too compressed, don't like the sound.

I can do that with the Other guitar mic .. Cant bring up too much more of the room sound though... Because of the hiss going on there.. Maybe I will add in some reverb/delay ....


Otherwise, what did you think?

Also, I did the rough mix on my headphones... It is missing something through my regular PC speakers, but sounds wider in the headphones..

Even though you may have some hiss from the room-mic track, you might be able to get by boosting this level just a little to add depth to the guitars and mitigate the too-DI'd sound without getting too much hiss. Just a thought. Good luck.

Acoustic guitar has too much direct sound, much to clean for this type of music, (or any style IMO), also way too much compression all around.
