    Here's cover I made for my mom for Christmas. She loves this song, and I thought I'd do something a little special for her. I'm looking for some mix critiques, as Christmas is coming up really quick and I want to make any tweaks sooner than later if I can:

    Here are the details:
    Drums: Superior Drummer 3
    Bass: Parallax (Neural DSP)
    Guitars: Nameless Suite (Neural DSP)
    Vocals: Original Hett vox, edited as needed to fit.

    If this is being posted in the wrong area, my apologies. Please relocate as needed.

    I think the guitars are a little too tight and there's a weird thing going on with the bass end during the verses. The drums could be a bit bigger as that was one of the signatures of the song.

    Overall it's good though. I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do.

    Thank you! I'll take these notes into consideration. Is the weird thing in the bass at the end of the verses a tonal thing, or a performance thing?

    Tonal. It sounds great until then and then all of a sudden it's like the bass is really loud with a chorus and high gain on it or something.
