    Hey everyone,
    I don't have many chances to post on here, but I was hoping to get some opinions on this mix I'm working on. I know it needs a lot of work, but I would appreciate some ears to point me in the right direction. There are no vocals yet, but the drums, guitars and bass are there.

    Thanks!

    Guitars are a bit too loud and fizzy, maybe drop them down and bring the bass up, arrangement wise it's a bit disjointed so that usually hurts the "sound" as well.

    It definitely sounds like the drums mix doesn't suit the style. Particularly the snare sounds a little too verby and big. I like the guitar but they have no dynamic. Maybe some compression could help there, if used well? My only real critic is the snare it's a bit to tubby and maybe a touch too loud. I think with good mastering this mix could really come alive,

    Thanks for the suggestions so far, I will start working on the changes soon. I had a feeling about the guitar tone and the snare, so it's nice to get confirmation from others.
