Overall sound is far better. Seems the level is about where we have been discussing for mixing levels. Theres more to cover on that, and mix down levels and such, but improvement. Forward steps.
Blues ballad has a nice foundation, my primary critique would be that it seems to be a sax and two or three guitars all playing lead at once... I would suggest deciding who plays lead at the moment.
I wouldn't want to be in a band with those guys all demanding attention all the way through the tune.
No wait, I think I was once......
Sound check has some nice arrangement and interesting content. I think its pretty good, especially for your intended purposes.
Theres what sounds like a rough edit at about 0:30, and the bass content is very loud relative to the rest of the mix. But your on the right path.

For instance, and I know this is a particularly bad example, but, Muzak, since there is no vocal, you usually hear what was a vocal part, turned to an instrumental lead? Not that I know how to construct using vocals, but lack of vocals, is a foreign concept.
Brewsir wrote:As far as the bass on "Sound Check", you caught me. Just can't leave the damn bass alone. I tried really hard to enhance it, without the resulting problems............not so much. I did finally play one of my songs on my home theater system, it sounded fairly good, but required quite a bit of extra volume to get to my preferred listening level. I think I had too many sliders too low, to make sure the "enhanced" bass didn't cause any clipping. Why don't I just leave effects alone for now, right?

I was going to try to show some more very basic mixing of the project, then move on to some thoughts on mixing down. Any questions, input, suggestions welcome.
