Well done Richard. A very nice composition, and I have to admit I too am envious of your skills.

I assume you asked to be a contact because you would like some honest feedback?  The dishonest kind is of little real value other than ego stroking.

The video was not bad, but I assume your focus is the music, yes?

First of all, I have to base my opinion entirely on the quality of the streaming audio, which leaves just a little to be desired.

I also did not dig the bass snapping/popping.  It didn't seem to go with the rest of the piece and was a bit of a distraction.

The other thing is that the stereo soundstage seems a little cluttered making the piece sound muddled and indistinct.  I'd suggest widening the soundstage a bit and panning the instruments a little to give them some sonic separation.  I think you'll find it will make the presentation much more listenable.

Overall, I liked it very much.  Keep up the good work.

 You assume right in saying the focus is the video is the music. When I recorded and mixed this song I was not very familiar with Samplitude. Today however I am much better with it. If I had mixed this piece today I would have panned the instruments and even done a better job equalizing it. I see how the slap bass does not 100% fit with the tune but I really enjoy hearing slap bass. I have never heard slap bass in a slow song so quite like that and I thought it would be interesting and change things up a bit from the first verse. I do agree with much of what you have said and thank you for saying it. I don't think I will be remixing this song in the near future but if I do I will keep that in mind.

Hy Richard,
Excellent work of guitar and bass but  perhaps I have varied some the accompaniment of the keyboards  (in effects they are only four  key accords)
The guitar is played in professional style and remember me a romantic Santana
