Hi guys, here's a pop/folk/rock (honestly I'm not sure what genre to call it) song that I wrote and produced called Listening Listening. I'd really appreciate some feedback on it, especially the production aspect, as while I have a decent amount of songwriting experience, I'm pretty new to producing. Thanks for any help!

I think a little of equalization on the guitar at the start could help a lot, try to mark what do you want of the guitar.

Remember, equalization first, reverb later.

it sounds good ( talking about production), but it could sound better with a good mix, every instrument has to be equalizad, for example if you had a guitar with a bass. you should cut the high end of the bass and the low end of the guitar, that will help the instruments to mix better together.

So try to give every instrument a place in the range of frequencies of your mix.

 

Now talking about musicality.

I liked it a lot, I always wanted to writte a piece with voice but I'm just terrible with words, and I sing pretty bad. But you sing very well , don't be scared of doing some edit to your voice, it will help the overall sound of the piece, but just don't edit too much because it will sound antinatural.

So great work, congrats :3.

This is a cool song, you don't come across these that often. If I were arranging this I would add a couple of instruments to the mix. Maybe something atmospheric faintly in the background, and later, an accordion?  Bring the electric guitar in earlier before it does the solo, also just in the background. It needs a counter melody to the bare guitar. Weave them in and out. I would introduce the drums and bass earlier and definitely give it a back beat on the snare. I make these suggestions in light of its length. Otherwise it will get boring. And the verse/chorus could be better delineated. I leave that up to you.
