    A decent start, the performances are good. Id turn the vocals down a bit, axl's voc range and style cut thru without a ton of volume.

    Id increase the mid range and volume of the guitars, slash has a tone of mid and top on his sound. Hpf can be used aggressively as well to get cut.

    More top end on the bass guitar.

    Maybe a bit more room sound on the snare to give it that classic sound. Maybe a large room or hall with a HF roll off to keep in line with the times.

    Id also include a barely audible delay that has different time settings on either side, like 8th/dotted 8th. This to add some more size depth amd human to the snare.

    Possibly a little more cymbals too, but only if things still sound a bit empty and dull after all the other adjustments. The hi hat is fine as is.

    Fun song tho. A few tweaks and itll ready for the wiskey.

    Thanks very much for the listen and suggestions. I brought the vocals down a bit good call. The idea with the guitars was to sound as close as possible to the original recording.

    Dude this doesn't even sound like a cover - are you secretly Axl Rose trying to punk us? This sounds awesome. Was this professionally mixed? Real drummer? Real amp or VSTs? Only nitpick would be the intro clean guitar could be played with a little more soul in the bends. Vocals could be slightly louder - but not bad as-is.
