Good playing here especially as it gets to the 4:00 point. Only main critique is that the drums are way too far back in the mix and since you're going for a real drummer sound the drum parts should be flushed out to include drum fills that would drive the energy. The first change was different for me but I'm not that sophisticated.

Reminds me of Soft Machine. I like it! Agree with Mr M's comments, and would add that the bass sounds a little lost sometimes, especially around 4 minutes.

Hi René,

Sounds good, nice mood. 8-)
I didn't hear the first version, but I think the drums are still a bit too far back in the mix.

Nice guitar sound.

Cheers,
Wim
