Glad to know it worked out!
You got a hard rejection but could send them the track again after the changes? I’m new around here and thought that wasn’t an option!
- Give some chorus and treatment to those claps. Double them up. And rest the ears. Avoid placing them throughout the whole track all the time.
- The guitar sounds rather harsh on the rhythm. I would ease the articulations. Having a tight beat doesn’t mean you should steal the show with the articulations. Soften them a bit and see where it goes.
- For me it sounds empty a bit. I would give the bass more importance in the mix. And the bells could have some piano doubling them. By adding instruments I would attemp to get to a more defined climax by the end.
Now I should go to rest before I lose my mind. Keep at it!
