Re: Mixing a live set

Same "rules" as for composition, orchestration and arranging: avoid
combining sounds that sound too similar. Watch out for bass and lower
mid frequencies for being "over crowded". Simple example: it is a lot
simpler to sound good if backing up a flute melody with a bass melody
compared to backing up a bass melody with another bass melody :-)
