You seriously think I'm trying to get you to do it for me? Don't be a dick about it, I'm not that selfish. I was just simply asking for advice, not how to get other advice. There's musicians that make their music and I'm asking for some input out of them.
Oh, an entitled noob. That's a new one.
Look buddy, let me make a car analogy. You've just walked into a mechanic's shop and said 'hey, my car won't start. What should I do?'
You haven't told us what kind of car it is, you haven't demonstrated any kind of framework of knowledge (If I ask you to check your battery, do I have any reason to believe you know how to do that?) or told us any concrete information to start diagnosing the problem.
And since this is the internet, you're not actually rolling a car into a shop, instead you're saying "How do I mix music? It sounds bad when I do it. Tell me how to do it so it doesn't sound bad."
You need to read, and learn, and have some basic framework of skill from which to ask your questions. Then you might form a question like "I'm having trouble making my lead guitar stand out over the shit my drummer is doing, any tips?" or "How can I make my horns sound warmer?"
So seriously, shut up, and go do some reading.
