    I am completely new to mixing and recording, so I am looking for as much feedback as I can to help improve my mixes. I have 3 different clips, each of them with a different guitar tone and different mixes. Please let me know if there is one that you like the sound of or what could be improved. All different styles.

    Basically for all of them I am recording from my Axe-FX II straight into Reaper using USB cable. Double tracking panned L and R 100%. Bass is coming from my attempt at a bass patch on my regular guitar also through the Axe-FX. (Sound of the bass is probably nowhere where it needs to be since I am not using a bass guitar...). And drums are Steven Slate drums 4.

    My general workflow seems to be to put a high/low pass on the guitars, and then narrowly notch out any frequencies that seem harsh to me, followed by a small amount of low-mid compression. Then I put a bass boost on the bass guitar (maxxBass plugin). As for drums, I think I boosted the bass on the kickdrum and added some reverb to the snare and toms. Then I would group everything and use a limiter and Gclip. Any thing I am doing wrong here?
