I did this and to me it sounds ok

Can you tell me if the sound level

Voice level is right

The Guitar Level

Background Level

Is there anything here I could do better ?

Is there any thing here that you like and you really think its right ?

Now I am no singer as you all know , but I am trying and forget about the lyrics this all about the sound levels ...

Actually I think it is very Lennon-ish in parts but thats just me

the mix is fine. I do hear something like a hand on a mic; muffled thumps.
also, the birds are cool. but there seems to be a lot of air, or space, or big room
echo that works against the vocal effects.
I block hard surfaces when I am miking .
other wise....well, your singing has some rough bits.

and lastly, I do like the Lennon vibe. it was the first thing I thought of.. cool.

aw c'mon. keep singing.
just like guitar we're supposed to get better.
I have to sing. it makes me feel good. I suck too.
recording outdoors is cool. put a foam thingie over it; it cuts down on the wind puffs.
seriously, I like the way you approach songs. a writer.
I have a hard time writing. :)

The levels sound fine to me. It's hard to distinguish between rain and background hiss, you have to really concentrate on the background to realise it's rain. I see you've been using the time-shift again - and you've been a bit less heavy-handed with the reverb this time, as opposed to My Three Chords. It's a fine line gauging how much delay to use - too little, there's no echo - too much, it's like listening to two singers, and one of them's a beat behind the other - so well done on getting that right.

Another thing to remember is that no two people will give you exactly the same opinion - one'll say the voice is too far forward, another will say it's too far back - everyone has to find what works for THEM. There have been a few songs I've done where people have said the lead guitar needs bringing up a bit - but I've adjusted the levels to what I thought sounded good to me.

Sounds like you're well on the way to finding YOUR sound.....

:D :D :D
