You guys sure are a lot less forthcoming with your feedback than other places.  No comments, critiques or suggestions?  I know I'm just rehashing what someone else has already written and played but that was the point... to demonstrate what a Parker can sound like when you try to get the same tone by mimicking the same equipment and attempting to play in a similar style.  Don't think you're going to hurt my feelings by being honest.

We're a bit slow sometimes, forgive us. [;)]

I like the overall sound, it fits very well and is close enough to the original that it's pretty much impossible to tell it's a Parker.

I just have the feeling that on certain spots there are too many guitar layers covering and interfering with each other that a lot of punch gets lost in the mix when it's especially that punch that makes the song stand out so much, at least the live versions. It's most likely that all the layers share the same frequency range and thus cancel out each others peaks. I don't know how deep you can go into dynamics and EQing in Garage Band but if you can spread the ranges a little and allow each layer to breathe it should do the trick. But with bass, drums and vocals all in one backing track I know it's very difficult to get the levels right without mudding it up. Noticed a few minor timing issues in the first third too.

Honest enough?

Greetings...

Perfect. I see what you mean.  I used two different amp sims to try to change the guitars so they wouldn't bleed into each other.  I'm still working on my mixing skills.  Thanks for the critique!

I think the tones are spot on. Just mix the guitars better and you've got it!

Thanks!  I really need the feedback so I can get another perspective.  Sometimes you listen so many times that you can't "hear" it anymore.  I'd rather an honest negative feedback than a placation.
