Hello everyone this is a song i made. took me a couple months to finally get it done but i finally did it tonight. please leave comments on what needs improvements as far as instrument volumes, EQ, compression or if it has to much reverb etc. Thanks

It's good to hear a decent amount of dynamic range which you have achieved. The sound is quite clear overall.

In the acoustic intro the bass is a little boomy on the B and C notes. It sounds good to me after EQing the intro between 20 Hz (-6dB) and 200 Hz (-2dB). I hear the same boomy notes on the bass guitar in the section after the intro and at 1:30. A slight moderation of the 20-200 Hz range works well here. A little compression on the bass guitar may even out its volume a little.

Rhythm guitar is sometimes away from the beat a little too much. If you get it tighter you could double track it.

Lead guitar sound is quite good. I like the reverb. That's down to personal choice anyway, so bugger what anyone else thinks.

I honesty don't have many complaints. The guitar tones are as sweet as can be, everything is pretty clear (though I kinda wanted a TINY bit more kick drum, just a little.) Everything else sounded great.

I would of liked some vocals too, but that's a whole different hill of beans.

Nice chill piece. Overall very cool. Just two things I would have changed. First - at 1:52 when the main riff starts again I would have let the clean guitar play the riff twice without a melody over it and after that start the melody. So add the main riff twice before starting the melody again at 1:52. That would be cool.

And the song kind of ended too soon. You had a cool rocking lick in the end (2:33) and I wish it had continued and there could have been a more rocking part in the end. So maybe base a new riff on that lick and continue the song. As I said, that part could be more "rock". More intensity and energy. Maybe some kind of ripping solo with vibrato, bends and some fast licks and lots of emotion and distorted guitars in the background.

I wanted to hear a cleaner tone from the guitar, but overall good. It was relaxing, I liked the funky parts like at 1:45. I like the rhythm guitar as well.

Nice as soon as the drums came in and the guitar changed I knew I'd like it. Then the more distorted tone comes in, usually im not a fan of this sort of tone, but it fits well in a way you wouldn't expect. Really some of your lead phrases too. I'd work on your vibrato abit though just to give it abit more authority.
