    Hey Dave,
    Wow, thats a long 10 weeks 🙂
    Drums sound nice. Is that a delay on the snare drum?
    The delay seems a bit distracting when your voice (comes in) and onwards after that. Just single snare hits could work better?
    A shaker would be nice from the first violin break onwards. Continuing through the solo guiitar and voice section.
    A croozy song. Rhheow!

    Hi Ben. Welcome back to 12SI12W! The double snare hits are actually in the playing. Is it called flamming? There is no delay (other then a small predelay on the snare reverb). I think you are right about it being distracting with the vocals, so I might try to tame the second hit by using a compressor with a slow attack and release, to try and let the first transient through, but clamp down on the second one, and automate this compressor to only be on during vocals. I’ll try the shaker idea too. Thanks muchly, Dave

    love it very cool use of breaks and v groovy drumming. may I suggest a cool descending violin ‘meeeeow’ before the second verse and then repeated maybe slower at the end of you scrached me back.. and I think it would be sexy to a partly spoken partly sung higher harmony over ‘come when i call’ by Rach ; ) xo onwards and upwards Mister Dave. v cool stuff. looking forward to the release!!
