Nice! I liked the guitar solo at the end - it sounds highly processed but also intimate - fits the song perfectly.

This is so well mixed. I agree with the above: it's got a processed sound, but little touches like being able to detect the pick against the strings, and that it sounds like classic lo-fi home recording, give it the feel of warmth and "being there". If it weren't mixed so well, it could have sounded like a soup, with all the little touches and instruments in the background. (And many of my songs have turned out like soup due to not knowing how to engineer and mix sounds properly.)
