The entire mix sounds like its in a cave.
Kick is barely alive in this for what sounds like a low pass.
Is your percussion track a sample by chance? If it is, I would look into getting some better quality ones.
The melody you are playing but using as a mid range tone is a little repetitive. Experiment with changing something within that pattern,yet keeping it aligned with the notes you are playing.
Can't stress this enough. EQ is your friend. I still am learning this valuable tool but found it hard at first because of how I mixed. I started off being told to just go into the song and lay the composition and arrangement down first,then go in and mix it. I found this very hard to do until I actually sat down and started making a song with the mix in mind,first. For me, it helped in hearing how I wanted the end result to be or...what was in my head.
EQ EQ EQ!
Below is a (LONG)great video from Steve Dudda which he breaks down alot of things but, he talks about EQ in a section in the most simple understanding way. I HIGHLY recommend watching this..Steve just makes..sense
