Not bad at all.

For what it is, not bad at all. The acoustic guitar playing works well, and your singing is quite good. No autotuning, ftw.

If you're going to make an acoustic song, the reverb and such need to be taken down a notch, especially on the voice. Listen to the guitar and notice the reverb on it is quite dry. The voice needs to match that, otherwise it lets off an unsettling effect throughout.

There are a few pops in the recording, but there's nothing you can do except re-record, which I don't think you'd want to do so just be careful with the mic setup next time.

Watch the guitar levels, 'cause I hear hard clipping periodically (more toward the second half than the first).

Great mix, though - it's certainly above par (especially the singing), so keep it up!

thanks for the review =]
from now on, all my mixes are going to be a lot better, cause I just got Mixcraft 5, which is a HUGE amazing upgrade from Mixcraft 4, mixing and recording is so much easier now. Yeah I know it sounds reverby. I try to put on just enough, but it isn't easy. Not enough reverb makes the vocals incredibly dry, and too much makes it too echo-y. Gah >_< lol
but thank you lol
