Thanks all for the comments so far...

I started out with the Duarte version many years ago - but I've changed a few things as well based on other versions I've seen and/or heard. Not sure where the various bits come from now!

Thanks, Erik. I think it's a combination of the guitar (I love big basses), but also the mic position is not ideal. In order to get the ambient noise levels down I have the mics quite close to the guitar, which tends to emphasise the basses.

It may be because when I play it I have to play it slower to get some of the changes clean, but I wonder if you would consider slowing it down a tad and letting some of the phrases breath a little (I'm not suggesting taking breaks, just giving them some room to move if that makes sense?).
Possibly - I've heard versions both significantly faster and slower tempos than mine - but I do agree that a few more "breaths" would help.
