what's wrong with this mix?

hi all,

i recorded this acoustic song (nylon string guitar + vocals) with one mic. the idea was to capture the sound of the room and performance, so that's why we only used one mic. in general i'm happy with the sound and the imperfections...

however, i've noticed that the dynamic range on some of the songs seems too great... almost as if i needed to add more compression. but this makes me confused, because i feel like i already added too much compression! (i was averaging around 4 db in gain reduction)

can you guys have a listen to a couple of the tracks and let me know what you think? any advice about the recording in general would be appreciated!

thanks!

You need to roll off some low end. I'd probably HPF it up to 125-150. It's likely what your compressor is compressing.

Otherwise sounds ok. Love the background noise.
