I tried some new stuff with this one - split screen, different color adjustment on the video, newish mixing tweaks. How'd I do?

Tjarko Busink on bass. He's good.

Listening now. Enjoying the bass part but, if I may, I'm less keen on the bass sound. It's a bit honky for me and competing a little with the guitar and voice.

Enjoyed this overall, but agree the bass part as it stands isn't a good fit. Volume-wise it's rather overpowering and not a pleasant tone, especially when he goes up the scale.

Thanks. I continue to struggle with mixing. Sime day I'll it right, if only by accident.

I think we've discussed our differences about the bottom octave before if I remember rightly?
But in a stripped back arrangement like this I think you can definitely let the bass loose a bit in the low end.

Okay, I changed it. Now I've got two mixes for this one. Can I ask what you listened to this one on? - tinies, or studio monitors or headphones?

Studio monitors if I recall correctly.

I'm glad the pleasure reached as far as your toes. I'm glad I'm overdubbing stuff these days - I think it presents the tune both more pleasantly and more completely.

Okay, I hear the difference you're talking about, but only just. I switch between a rolloff of 40 and 70 Hz on the bass, and what I hear is mininal. Clear, but mininal. You're still right about the last bit.
