Song For A Friend (Remix)

I sent the tracks for this tune to a friend of mine who owns a professional studio. I gave him no instructions on how to mix it, as I wanted someone else’s take on the music. He created a very dry, intimate mix, focusing more on the acoustic guitars, much less on the strings. Each individual track was a first take, and I was writing the song as I recorded it, so it’s a bit raw around the edges. I tend to bury my mistakes with strings and effects and his mix really exposes the flaws in my playing. However, I think the overall emotion and mood of the piece is much stronger. I’m once strove to be a perfectionist, now I’m just trying to let it go. Hmm, I will fix that fade out, though, eventually…

Wonderful remix, I like the guitars up front on this one. An alonetone guitar favorite, for me.
