This song is part of a collection written and recorded by my brother to promote awareness of people who struggle with disabilities and can’t afford health care (my brother has Aspberger’s Syndrome). He sang and played acoustic guitar. I added bass guitar and a virtual drum track.
Then I kind of went nuts and added horns and electric guitar, going for something along the lines of a “25 or 6 to 4” vibe. Ended up with a lot of tracks, and I tend to get bogged down when mixing such a dense project. I spent the day tweaking it, and it’s going on the album as is (I’m up against a deadline and out of time), but I’m very interested in any thoughts as to how you would mix it differently.
Of course you’re free to critique the song, the performances, etc. as well, but I’m mostly interested in mixing ideas. Thanks!
