A big sound - wide and cool - sounds great overall. it is very musical
may be the vocal is a bit too upfront or it is taste. the first and second gtr solo is for me too quite and it is hard pan to the right. the drums sound sgreat, big and punchy. Cool Mix.👍

I agree with Klaus! As if a lot of reverb on vocal, although it is maybe really taste. Good mix!

Thank you guys!
@Klaus Ferretti Can you recommend how much should I lower my vocal? (Like -x dB) I find myself always mixing the vocal too upfront. Thank you. :D

@George Near Can you suggest the amount of a proper reverb? Maybe a reference track or something. I knew that I usually mix with lots of reverb on the vocal but I want to improve it so that it will sound like others. Thank you. :D

Hey Supawit, nice mix! I agree with the others on the reverb, especially on the lead vocal where the effect is too evident, I like the reverb on the drums instead but for it doesn't connect with the gtrs that seem too dry in comparison.. ;P

On picture "send channels", which I use in project, it shows how much reverb and delay goes to the send channel and master. You can turn the mix knob, and reduce it.

Or you can try to use stereo shaper (by fl studio) with preset - stereoize 3 (I don't know alternative plugin yet) if after reduce reverb vocal sounds worse.

And as a reference track I used AC/DC - Back in black, but mostly comparing drums and gitar.
P.S.
Maybe what I wrote is nonsense, because I'm still learning;))

the tail of the snare drum must be subordinated to the rhythm. Instruments playing solo should come to the fore. And now it is heard that the main thing in the song is the beat, but this is not rap, is it?
profile
@Vlad Yeah, sure this is not a rap song. I don't know how to deal with a single solo guitar with a single rhythm track. If I pan both the solo and the rhythm guitar in the center then the track will lose the stereo field. How would you suggest panning these two? Thank you!

@Supawit Puttipipatkhachorn, as an example, you can listen to how I did it

my logic is this: if something is on the left, then it needs to be balanced with something on the right. The instruments in the center are in dialogue with the vocals
