I am going to list my thoughts as the song progresses:

- Awesome guitar sound
- Nice vocal tone/level
- Nice melody
- Very nice voice
- Kind of quiet, overall, has it been mastered?
- "Holly" sounds like "Hally" but it's fine because that's your style
- Nice dynamics in the chorus
- I kind of want a bridge or something, and then repeat the chorus again, it's a great chorus.

Cool song, very nicely done.

I'll echo brock, real nice sound on the acoustic and vocals. Great dynamics, mix levels sound about right on to me. The song itself I really like, fits right in with the range of stuff I listen too. :)

Thanks brockferguson, olddog- hey ya know this is the second song that i have recorded which seems to be lacking in overall volume. I did master this one. Is it just a matter of bringing up the master- any quick advice would be appreciated- I use the BR1600.

Here's my mastering process which seems to get things quite loud :)

- Magneto (on any level, depends on the type of music, this could have a Medium Output I believe)
- Izotope 3 (using a preset of your choice)
- 2nd round of light compression with Cubase's default Dynamics plugin, with a limiter
- Pull the levels up to 0.00 on the stereo out.
