It is far from finished, .....only been using Logic for a few months. Constructive criticism would be nice.

Also, ....if anyone wants to have a shot of mixing or remixing a track then that is kewl.

I know you hate myspace

Its not the hate for myspace, many of us including myself have pages there. Its that their compression for uploaded music to their player's really tears up the sound sometimes.

If you look to your My Account tab above and go to the manage my music page you can upload your music here without it being compressed to oblivion. Makes it easier for us to listen as well since you can allow downloads as well.

Anyway, my first thought is you will need to bring the drums up for sure. They are all but completely missing in the mix from what I can hear on the mysapce player.

Are you using a traditional bass guitar or a synth bass in this piece? Either way, it could use a bit more on the attack portion of it to make it stand out a bit from the rest of the mix.

The acoustic guitar and main vocal are great, nicely done for sure and they sound very good together throughout the mix.

On the verse portion though is were it all needs a bit of work in the EQ department. You've got a lot happening in the same frequency range there and it becomes a bit of a mess of sound during that part. It sounds like you have a really cool vocal part there with a lot of layers, could be an effect but it sounds like it should work. The only factor that is hindering that is the electric guitars and any synth part in there that is taking up the same frequency range and causing it all to mesh together.

You will need to find the conflicting frequencies and make some cuts to allow the other piece to come forward. I suggest the guitar or synth be EQ'd a bit to allow the vocal parts to come out and be heard as a separate being in the mix.

Otherwise I like the song overall. Very cool and all the pieces are there for sure. Just a matter of sorting it out a bit.
