Yes.. [emoji6]... my 2 Cents...
1. the cricket is too present (it should be more far away outside. Filter it a little bit in the high frequencies)
2. At pouring the bottle, we hear a swapping liquid. This normally occurs only if a bottle is tilted very fast and the waves of a liquid are breaking. So better leave it away.
3. The motion of the arms can be more present (is it even there? Just used the speaker of my smartphone to listen). Try to produce sounds for every movement. Especially after pouring and laying back the hand on the table.
4. The atmosphere is very static. Maybe the situation is that the protagonist is allone in a abandoned place. But there should be more than a static noise and a cricket that draws the attention of the audience. Try some soft wind (maybe it causes some old doors/window to swing?!), try a dog or coyote barking far away. Even the chair could make some crackling noise. Instead of one cricket, try a swadron of crickets to illustrate the heat outside. You could support the atmosphere by a fly buzzing in the background (use stereo, but do not make the fly a focus of the scene).

I tried to do the clothing rustle, couldn't get it to work right. IT was just a jump of incompressible noise.

Juulz - Shy Rockstar

Kid walked into our Friendly Neighborhood Community Center Project Studio five years ago, when he was just fifteen.

Breaking into the local scene now with his own mix of rap and pop/punk rock.

Typical case of mixing bedroom recorded vocals to a two track 'beat'. Some of my 'improvements' (additional drums, guitars and bass) didn't make it to the final mix. Oh well...

Sounds great, Dave! The music style isn't my cup of tea, but enjoyed it.

ist song recorded using PT 2020
 
https://soundcloud.com/markspinner/strange-days-final

This is a song called Strange Days. The 1st song I recorded using PT 2020

The session was stable. System is in the signature. The whole recording process was very fluid.

I used a Fender Deluxe Nashville Telecaster guitar. The amp was the PRS Archon Fifty. The gain channel was used on a cleaner setting to give it enough gain to sing. I used a Shure Beta 57 to close mic a JCM 800 4x12 cabinet.

I did 4 tracks of guitar for the rhythm tracks. Each played separately. I then panned to each side. I also alternated between the middle pick up and the neck/middle on the selector switch to give tonal variation.

The tracks were basically recorded dry although I used the slightest amount of reverb/delay using the Catalinbread Echorec. Effects were added in post. Some of the effect plug ins used were UAD 1176, Fairchild 670. Pultec eq's, MXR flanger , Brigade chorus, AIR gate etc.

The bass guitar was recorded direct through an Apollo Quad interface. Plug ins used were UAD 1176, Pultec eq.

The vocals were recorded using a Neumann TLM 102 through the Apollo. UAD Manley Voxbox was used on the master bus. I did multiple tracks on the backing tracks live to thicken up the chorus. There were panned appropriately to achieve the best results.

I mastered the track at approximately 12.5 integrated LUFS to prepare for any loudness normalizations by streaming services.
If any one has any questions I would be happy to answer or share any info.

Enjoy. I included the lyrics below if anyone cares to follow the song

Strange Days

Took a drive just the other day
It seemed like a good idea
Thoughts racing around inside of my mind
Put a song on the radio
While I drove down memory lane
Driving alone when it started to rain
These are strange days
When in the blink of an eye
One morning you wake up
And everythingís changed
These are strange days
When you love from afar
Keeping your distance away
From the ones that you love
These are strange days
Canít even drink in a bar
Thatís why Iím driving alone in my car
Youíre still alive, you need to thrive
You need to keep it all together for another day
And it ainít wise to hide eyes from what youíre seeing
Itís the truth
Oh, itís just another day
Just look around at what you found
It ainít pretty and it ainít going away anytime real soon
Itís like a maze youíre in a daze of purple haze
Youíre spinning round
Oh, itís just another day
