    That thunder on every measure sounds corny as fuck. :lol: Is there just one guitar track? You should probably dual track the guitar and pan one 100% left one 100% right, see how you like that. Either way the guitar(s) is/are too low and the mix becomes too narrow with guits in the middle along with everything else, it doesn't really work when the whole mix isn't mono. The other elements actually sound pretty good, bass sounds a bit muffled.

    I think you should abandon that idea completely, it sounds incredibly silly and doesn't add anything to the song, but that's just my opinion. Perhaps you could use a crash cymbal or a china or such, you can probably find some multisamples if you search around a bit.

    The thunder, actually, is pretty interesting, i say don't take it off, maybe use it a bit more sparsely, like instead of every occuring measure, use it every 4th one. Otherwise, is it two guitars or just one? sounds like centered one...

    Its two but now i have panned them left and right now and it sounds really cool :) and im planning to see how vocals would sound on it so im going judge the whole thunder thing based on how the vocals sound over it but if the vocals don't work im planning to just leave the thunder the way it is but i will experiment a bit more..
