    Guitar with vocal accompaniment (well, not quite, but close)

    You used compression on this. The voices, with almost no transients are
    much more suceptible to the compressor than the much more spiky guitars.

    Teach your singer to complete a phrase (or at least a word) on one breath.
    "redee <breath> ming grace" really irks me. Begin a phrase gently, swell
    to the most important word and ease off to the end of the phrase.

    The greatist failing is that I don't get any feeling of message from this
    recording. Without the natural rise and fall of the phrasing, the swell of
    the chords (vocal and backup), there's no life in it. It's pleasant but
    flaccid.

    I think the guitar solo needs some work
