1- Remedial writing class with a focus on run-on sentences
2- Artists should stick to creating art and leave engineering to engineers.
2a-Shhhh. Secret tip- turn vocal up, turn music down.
3- wow- there really is a site!
Kinda what I was getting at, but in a slightly more sarcastic manner. Perhaps I shouldnt be so harsh and judgemental...

What was his question again?

Oh yes, the vocals becoming drowned out by the instrumental. It's a mixing thing, which cant really be pinpointed to one particular issue, and will only be resolved by experience, and experimentation. Read, experiment, and learn...
