You did so many and I still have not heard them all. I had a great time with this. I will do it next year too. if I can remember it.
Thanks for the really nice comment about What Youth Is For. I don't usually write punk-y lyrics but you've got to go where the inspiration takes you...
Thanks for stopping by for a couple listens! Glad you enjoyed. 😀
Hey, -- thank you for the comment, feedback at this late date! 😀 Wow, the folks who hang into March are a great cross section, fun.
hey, hey adnamak, thanks for the comments and congrats on a return to yoga, go easy 😀
(re: "winter here")
Bonus points for you!!!
I cannot seem to write a non-ambivalent love song to save my life. "Hey, kids! Can you find the hidden back-peddling in this lyric?"
I wish I could shake it, really.
EDIT: I mean, it does work as a positive too, in the since that who doesn't like to be cozy and cocooned with their person? But yeah, wintering sounds like laying over, pretty temporary, right?
Bathrooms rock...so do showers
Thanks for commenting on my song "Write This Song." Re-tuned the guitar a day later and it sounds much better. Congratulations on reaching 17 this year!
Thank you again for contributing vocals to "Charlie". I pitch corrected some lines to make the harmonies work well together, if you don't mind. I think it turned out pretty good.
We have a bathroom. That is all. three days..
Thanks so much once more for your wonderful comment. When something in my songs speaks to you, it means a lot to me to hear that. It's crazy how we seem to connect through music, right?
Apologies that I haven't updated "Charlie" yet, the FAWM clock is ticking and I want to finish one more song first, being as far behind as I am.
Thanks for listening to Nebula 318. Also no waves in space, but these are mere quibbles!
Thanks so much for your comment on jazz tunes and you picturing the rain...
Well good on you! Cause I had a few rain lines in there and they didn't quite work..
Roddy is a genius player...I just had to do something with him..jazz is really cool
Thank you so much for your lovely comment on "Cailleach Beara"! 😀 I would not have known of her without Donna's Pantheon challenge, but she's my new favorite goddess, too.
No, not the Roger song, the one you liked and I did not write music for... I cannot remember right now..lol!
Thank you so much!! I see you have new songs. We have a plumbing problem right now...but I will get back to this
Glad you liked Turn the Page.
was a skirmish, so I didn't realize it was worth a demo till I read it later. I wrote a song called Tabula Rasa some years ago. We could use it today.
And yes, scat is all that 😀
All five of our "kids" are over 30. How did that happen! 😜
Go, me!!! (Thank you for noticing.)
And for you? Anything cooking?
If you want to write music for that song..please feel free... I have no worries with it
Good morning!! Happy weekend!!!!!!!
Thank you for commenting on my Cryptogram song - hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks very much for your thoughts about 'weathervane movements'. Much appreciated!
I have figured out the Wraith voice on Stargate Atlantis.. lol! Thank you! I have a ton of tricks over here...
😀 I've got one waiting on a trombone solo (i.e. wake up the whole house loud) and one waiting on a tricky bit of lyric writing (never finish the backing track before the lyrics are done, grr... ) and of course there's the one with your lyrics, I haven't posted yet. I'm not so far behind 😀. Should I wait for @tcelliott to finish his version, or just go ahead and post "Chains" ??
Lol!!! well, I had some time...so..
Thanks for checking out Where the Wind Blows - some of my songs are personal and some are just reflections of common lived experience. This one is personal 😀
Thanks for commenting on my Takeover song. Since you were wondering - I made up the name of that club based on what I've observed. 😉
Thank you for your lovely comments on Waterfall. I am always nervous about whether anyone will understand what I am trying to portray or indeed whether it will be seen in a positive light (as it is my intention to inform, and not add to the stigma). Your comments make the effort all worthwhile.
thanks a lot for your nice comment on "Charlie". I'd be stoked if you tried some vocals!
Sorry for the late reply, but thank you so much for your kind comments regarding Ecstasy. As I said in the liner notes, it's a very personal song & I'm always amazed at the positive reception it gets.
See You In The Shadows…
Oh my eyeeeeeessssssss!
Thanks for your kind thoughts on "Crude Life." I appreciate you taking the time to listen and comment.
Go Amandas ! How do you like to work ? Would you like me to simply write some rough draft lyrics and send them on over to you ? Let me know 😀 I can work in almost any way that suits you 😀
thanks for commenting on "nothing can't be taken away." i ended up demoing it, and it isn't near as gloomy as it might first appear....
Thanks for your kind feedback on "And So I Joined". Yeah I tried to no longer spend an hour on the recording. Once one hour has gone, I try to finish the process faster by limiting the takes/arrangement. For mixing, I tried to stay no longer than 30 minutes on it, though sometimes I tend to go overboard with tweaking one plugin, and I'm going to soon fix that. I never thought the music actually went with the story of the lyrics in a sense of madrigalism. But I'm glad you thought of that because, I've always wanted to implemented madrigalism in one of my songs, I just didn't how to start it off! lol
Thanks for your advice on my third, I like that idea.
Sssshhhh! Insomnia or not, Don't Mention The Worms!
Thanks for listening to Pendulum. Some wacky panning on the chorus is a very good idea....
Yes, just playing around is super fun.
I could take that outtro and lengthen it just for you if you want.. I think I can. I think I can.
thanks for commenting on "just blocked myself."
You know I wrote a science fiction book and now writing two more... I have a cd..a two cd set for the book.
Thank you! I am behind in listening here... been creating.. I will be back
Lyric topic. How about chains? Just throwing it out there.
Hey Amanda! I'm up for a collab, if you have some lyrics or a simple song demo I could put my arranging skills to work on in.
I'm totally down to try an unplugged thing if you want!
Thanks for the comment on Rock And Roll Soul! It was definitely fun. Playing for sanity and amusement is what it's all about.
Thank you! I have Reverbnation and it works, I think, but not as good as soundcloud.. hmm
I think I'm changing that line in "cold" to the one you suggested. It actually occurred to me to reverse it in mixing but I promptly ignored anything requiring more work. But you're entirely correct. Thanks for the listen.
Thanks for your kind comments on my coffee addiction song. My coffee-love was sharpened recently, after I broke my old machine and bought a new chemex pour-over carafe. Fussy but delicious.
Thank you for your insight and comment on 'eyes'
only if you want to
Yes. I am letting that steep. But yes!
Not long now...!!!!
How about do a collab here with a new song idea, and continue pre-Feb ideas separately?
Haha, what do you think?
Hey A17, lets do this!
Lol! it takes getting used to.. strange and somewhat disjointed..
The very one! 😁
I guess like this?
And yes, I'm silly, what of it? 😉 Happy FAWMing!
Hello!!! Glad to see you've made it.
14 songs in 28 days!!!
Well, hello there. Ready for more craziness?
