    Hi Everyone,

    I've been listening to all the great mixes and learning a lot and thanks to Warren for opening "the book", having a lot of fun.
    My version of side by side has a Trumpet/Flugelhorn counter melody that accentuates the embedded 3/4 feeling and adds a kind of hopeful feeling. I remember watching older teens dance "the stroll" on American Bandstand. Such confidence! Imagining that memory put a little swagger into the attitude of the mix. I would like to hear Michael Buble sing this (of course, with Frank's orchestra in the mix). Maybe a duet with a female singer would work really well.

    I was testing out my new partially finished diy home studio acoustics / speakers. Also, first use of many VSTs including a ton of CLA-1176 black and blue, tons of fabfilter, Waves, TAL, Valhalla, Tony Maserati, Fix, Klanghelm.

    I also mixed "Little Love" from Ashliegh Watson alternating during January between the two very different songs. Playing in car on PC, iPad, Galaxy8.
