Yeah, Green Day cover. I sang this one, I don't get much practice mixing vocals. How did I do? Would you believe I recorded them and the acoustics on a rock band mic?

no, no i dont believe u, and i curse ur infidel mic techniques!

but in all serious, rockin man, if anything i think u could have been more confident in ur vocals and really belted it out, u got the chops man but i can hear u holdin back

the mix has all the elements i think, but the distorted guitars r a bit buried not as defined as could be, which in turns has the vox kind of dry up front, but yeah, had me toe tappin nonetheless

Yeah, the vox are up front, and a tad dry, but I think for this style it works pretty well. Bringing up the distorted gits a little might not be a bad idea though. Enough to be a little more prominent, but not enough to throw the mix outta whack. :)

i agree, the disto guitars are a little quiet, but thats how the song is. Its a cover so I tried to mimic the original mix.

And I really did use a rock band mic! Its a really surprisingly good quality cheap-as-balls mic.
