    Hey Dave, the track Old Fashioned seems to be removed but I checked out Don't Mind If I Don't on your Soundcloud.  It's a fantastic track.

    Pro stuff.  Well done.

    Mark.

    Very, very nice David. You clearly know exactly what you are doing. Any feedback that I can provide is purely subjective. To my ear, only a couple of things that I might ponder. But first, all the stuff that I love. Wonderful treatment of the vocal. It has a Paul Simon quality. Exceptional, really. Appreciated the expansive choruses, the extra depth, etc. Great execution. Snare was really well treated and placed. It was always there identifying the beat, but never pulled my attention away from that sweet voice. The only things I’d ponder: maybe pulling the reverb back on the vocal a bit during the opening verse, then let automation take it exactly back where it is in the choruses cause that part is excellent. And I wonder about the extra sound effect on the left in the bigger choruses: kind of a metallic scratching sound. It seemed unrelated to the overall vibe of the song. Other than those two little things, great stuff. Nicely done, indeed.

    Hi Lem, very kind of you and thanks for taking the time to listen and give me this feedback. Yep take your point about the first verse, I think I toyed with dropping the fx down in it but didn't actually commit, ha!

    Thanks again, Dave
