    I am a horrible mixing engineer and still working on songwriting and overall playing skills but I figured time to put something out there.

    A happy sounding song for dreary times.

    That's not horrible I'd say. OK, you forgot to clip the end but whatever. It sounds Satriani-ish.

    Love it, that was really nicely done and some kick-ass playing to go with it. Big thumbs up from me!

    Your mixing is not even remotely horrible, but you do need to gate that reverb on the drums. Playing is amazing, your use of the stereo stage is excellent. Outstanding job overall.

    That was awesome.Loved it. I checked out another tune you had up. You have great compositional chops and guitar chops too. On top of that your mix sounds fine. I think you have great melodies and thoughtful note choices, even on the fast stuff. great job. I'd go see you play live.

    Obligatory signal chain for guitar. Iridium by any chance?

    Thank you very much, you're too kind. I played my PRS S2 Standard 22 and used Neural DSP's Archetype Abasi plugin for the lead, and their Plini plugin for the clean tracks. Neural is making some amazing amp sims these days. Not just for metal anymore.
