I write mostly guitar/bass/drum machine type songs that don't have words in them.
It's been hard for me to find as much time to listen and write this year, but that's the way it goes I guess.
Thanks for the nice feedback on Fourteenth Funk. Hope there's a FAWMstock this year.
Thanks so much for dropping by and listening to "follow me." With so much great music out there I sure appreciate you having stopped by to take a listen. 😮)
I really should write or record something for FAWM but right now I visited your webpage and listened to "How to party" - hilarious!
I need this for my next birthday...
Thanks for listening... I am *very* self conscious about my trombone playing, because I used to be good. And then I took 15 years off and can still play the MSU fight song, lol. But give me enough takes and I can fake it. I used a Shure Beta57 about 4 inches directly in front of the bell. The low horn in the verse was doubled to give it some beef and all the horns in the chorus were doubled. Part of the reason I had 45 tracks, lol. Thank you for listening!!
Congratulations on hitting Century Club! 😀
Thanks! I appreciate your feedback. I have some catching up to do on your songs...
I can't believe I haven't commented on anything you've done! Great job on these, I'm going through them now.
Thanks airbag, It will always be lovely to wake up to a comment..have a wonderful last few days making
Thanks for your comments on my song Intelligent Design. Thoughtful and generous as usual
Thanks for the nice comment on Report Me All Well-- yes, I love Maine too. I wasn't terribly keen on Portland proper, but Booth Bay was a particular favorite area. When I "grow up" I want to have a writing cabin over there. Haha.
Thanks for the wonderful comments on "Anoushka"
Thanks, my friend. It's still getting to me. I'm not a crier (except in every movie ever made) but this is hard.
Dude! Thanks for the kind comments about my song "No Choice" AND ALSO for posting a link in the Recommended Songs thread. That's super generous of you. Thank you!
Thank you so very much for your comment on "My Stache" and I really wanted it to be a dance club ode to manliness and I am so pleased that you took it that way! It made my day!
And thank you once again! 😊
Howdy airbagtester. Thanks for your comments on "Small Town Breakdown". I grew up in a small town but never had a breakdown over it.
... keep on walzing *].
Thx for listening and the words.
Thanks for stopping by and giving your thoughtful comments, Eric. Good to hear stuff of yours again!
Thanks, Eric. 😊
And I think you definitely nailed the problem with that tarot track. That E riff is magnetic! No matter what I tried it kept insisting upon itself. Great fun to jam over, but too easy to get really self-indulgent and just jam out over the riff. Great for me, boring for the listener. 😁
I'm more happy with it today but I'm going to let it marinate for the rest of the month.
Anyhoo! How's life with you and the FAWMlet?
I hate it when I miss saying hey to all the people I want too and then I see you've put a comment up and I'm like OMG (insert fawmer name here) and that totally happened with you lol hey man, happy fawming! I'm dying to check out your funk instrumental "lemon pledge" because that just sounds like an epic time. Off to click it I go!
Your comments on "Winter Love" were deeply appreciated! I hoped it was a fun ode, and I'm getting good feedback. Now, how to get Weezer to collab with me . . . ?
Thank you so much for your lovely and kind comment! 😀
Agreed on the horns. I may try to add them. I have an Akai MPK Mini, but don't love my VSTi brass and saxophones, really. I never played anything other than what you hear in my music... My sister was a professional french horn player, but....hmmm...Know anyone?
Thanks for the feedback! I am bad at recording acoustic guitars! That and vocals are certainly my weak point. I will check on that issue. Is it possible to have phase issues with 2 different takes? I'm not sure...I really need to get a decent acoustic. They are so expensive, though. Thanks again. I appreciate feedback that helps me learn.
Many thanks Eric for your always knowledgeable listens. Now I am over to your songs for a good listen!
Hi Eric, thanks for the kind comments, appreciated will drop by to hear what you have been up to.
Thanks for listening to Discomfort Zone. I feel like I'm off to a slow start, but at east I'm moving.
Thank you, kind sir. 😀
Now get junior involved with making some music! They are VERY good at percussion and loud "special fx"... 😉
hi Good to see you again, thanks for your comment 😀
Hi Eric! Doing.the Daddy thing well!
I know exactly what you mean.
Cool photo. Is that your first colab? Good luck for February.
Hi! I wish you a beautiful and productive February! 😀
Hello up there! Welcome back, good sir.
Hello Sr Tester of Airbags! 😀 Great to see you here again! I look forward to hearing your new crop of tunes!
Man, what a great photo!! I love it. I have many like that myself. Fatherhood rules.
May the FAWM be with you
😀 Bring the shock and awe my friend!
Hey Eric! Nice to see you in the spot again. Hope all is well.
Hey Eric , looks like you're back... Happy (or whatever mood strikes you) fawming. See you out there.
Your profile pic = best one ever. 😀
Hey, Eric! So pleased to see you're here my friend! 😀
I love that picture! Get 'em addicted while they're young.
In between fatherly duties, let me know if you're up for an overdue coffee collab.
Hope you're around in 2017. I'll be lurking about.
Hi Eric! Hope you and the family are well. It would be downright scrumptious to hear some Eric tunes this year!
Hey! I hope fatherhood is treating you well. I look forward to hearing your music this year!
