Welcome to our community.
you should be able to get what you're looking for without a lot of added high eq. less eq = less phase issues i/e sounds better!I’ve opened up the song again, removed all the plugins and deleted all the duplicated tracks.... back to bare bones... going to completely remix.... I’ve learned alot since I originally mixed this one. I will repost when done with all your comments as priority.. any suggestion for a comparison track for this? And I HAVE to try the high strung acoustic setup (thanks Kurt Foster)...I just ordered a twelve string set to do this.
