    When I have sliced pickled beets, sometimes I try to fold them to see if/when they snap. Kind of like how I treat my friendships. But with more stains.

  • @musicbykatie 2 days

    thanks @barbara ๐Ÿ˜€ It's because I have some shit for people to listen to.

  • @tunecat 2 days

    Glad you like... I enjoyed doing it. I've posted the link to my page, and put your tag on the soundcloud link. I think it would be better to upload it from your page as that way it links to all the previous comments. I've made it downloadable. (That's if you want to)

  • @tunecat 2 days

    Hi barbara: here's the link to my version of The Art of Socialism. Have a listen (its a bit bonkers) and let me know how to credit you properly, and if there's anything needs doing more..

  • @tunecat 3 days

    Thank you very much for your comment on my lyric of "Take the Bait".

  • @staticcaptain  4 days

    Thanks for your comment - great to see you here again. Looks like I've got some listening to do!

  • @downburst  4 days

    Ha, it's all Wikipedia and a rhyming dictionary.

    Trebly waterfall of notes. Love that! Thanks so much for your comment.

  • @musicsongwriter 5 days

    Thank you Barbara for your beautiful comment on my Winter piece. I'd love to collaborate with you. Please let me know if you decide to create lyrics to it or if there is something else you find of interest.
    Have a great FAWM.

  • @andygetch  5 days

    Yes ๐Ÿ˜€ I have all of her music, but the not book, yet ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @andygetch  5 days

    Aw shucks your welcome! A plan does help ๐Ÿ˜€ BTW, a UK musician acquaintance Sarah McQuaid does a lot of cool things with just DADGAD.

  • @aprilm  5 days

    Thanks for checking out Winter River! I very much appreciate it

  • @jwhanberry  5 days

    Thanks for the heads up on the tag. Now I know why I wasn't getting many comments. I don't look for them that way, I just go down the skirmish page.

    Aw @barbara youโ€™re very welcome. What a lovely kind message you left me!

  • @scubed  6 days

    Thank you so much for your generous words on my songs! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @vegansongs  6 days

    Thank you Barbara..I don't see much good in the tactics like Cube of Truth - I do think that getting people together is good but not if they present a confused message! I think Cube of Truth presents a confused message.

  • @splittybooms  6 days

    Oy! THANK YOU for showing me my error...I was
    I feel a thousand times better now, too. Cause' I can say I did a skirmish!

  • @downburst  1 week

    Well, it sounds amazing, like it was recorded in a nice-size wooden room.

  • @babs77 1 week

    thanks for your feedback about my song, Barbara! I hope to put up some demos eventually but have limited time so lyrics for now... Happy fawming!

  • @jamkar  1 week

    Thank you for your always lovely comments on Fire Lane Barbara!

  • @downburst  1 week

    Oh, I donโ€™t think itโ€™s as bad as that. Itโ€™s just poetry, or else an unwanted echo of Jim Croce. โ€œYou left time on the counter! What, you couldnโ€™t be bothered putting it back in the bottle?โ€

  • @spunky4455 1 week

    Thanks for the compliment on my song. No worries, you absolutely got the message. But I enjoy being a bit cryptic.

  • @bradbrubaker  1 week

    I reread it and see how I read my own existential doubts into it.

  • @kahlo2013  1 week

    Thank you, Barbara, for you kind comment on Come Snow. if music does come to you, know I would be absolutely delighted to have you musical sensibilty on it.

  • @cowex  1 week

    ๐Ÿ˜ Nah. Coachy can be preachy, I suppose, so that's worth considering. But I wouldn't read too much into my lyric comments when there's a demo - I rarely pay attention to lyrics. I'm more about the groove, mix, melody, chords, .. though sometimes lyrics pop out and slice my head off. I remember those.

  • @nancyrost  1 week

    Hi, Barbara! I have a set of lyrics that I haven't written music for. Would you be open to trying a collab with them? Let me know and I'll email if so.

  • @marthie 1 week

    Thank you for feedback on "what are you doing right now"

  • @corinnecurcio  2 weeks

    Hi Barbara! Finally made it! Looking forward to your music!

  • @klaus 2 weeks

    Barbara, I hope your red wine is as warm as freshly sucked BLOOD! ๐Ÿ˜ž

  • @downburst  2 weeks

    I was wondering where you were. How's the new job? (And thanks for the listen.)

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    Oh ya, and on the song If You Want Him, I really felt that attitude! LOL Not sure where it came from exactly but I am trying to channel my inner "country" writer/singer - ned to work on amping up my vocals and work on a growl! lol Thanks for checking it out. I love your feedback, girl!

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    I so totally get that! I have been stretched for time but I had today off so I figured I'd better get moving doing my songs! I have another I still have to record. Congrats on the job! I help you can still check in and so some writing!

  • @scubed  2 weeks

    Thanks for stopping by, Barbara! Great to see you here again & look forward to hearing your songs. Hope you have a wonderful FAWM!

  • @deafsteever 2 weeks

    Thanks for the greeting, Barbara! Always nice to see (and hear) you. I'd love to do another "duet" with you sometime, ala "What Goes On". I'm sure it'll present itself someday. Maybe this year! ๐Ÿ˜€ All the best with FAWM 2018. Looking forward to your (always) interesting songs.


  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    Hello Barbara! Good to see you here

  • @sunnymae  2 weeks

    Thanks Barbara for the heads up on the morph! I tried looking for it but as you said there's so many forums out there. Looking forward to it. Happy Fawmingโ˜บ

  • @klaus 2 weeks

    Hi Barbara. I wish you a merry Fawm.

  • @timfatchen  2 weeks

    Thank you! The Sink of Doom has been inhumed, so I need only fear the Super Total-Eclipsed Blood Blue Moon tonight.

  • @robs  2 weeks

    Good luck! I'm not sure about 2018 but FAWM will certainly by vibrant!

  • @timfatchen  2 weeks

    Reading your limericks. I don't know that it was such a Good Idea to resurrect Fawmerick. There seem to be too many minds now quicker than mine...

  • @arthurrossi 2 weeks

    Hello Barbara! I am looking very forward to the flowers you will make thrive! Have a wonderful February!

  • @devin  2 weeks

    I haz eyes (ears?) on you.

    No pressure.

  • @pcob1993  2 weeks

    Heyyyy Barb, how lovely of you to leave a message, I just logged on this morning. Thank you. I have a new amp and a fabulous hand-made electric so I'm just going to sit down each day and wail.... I thought I'd have a few songs scratched out already but no, just the usual headful of bits of things from all over the universe...
    but hey, isn't that just what we all are, stardust???
    Dying to hear you again, one of my fave five Fawmers

  • @devin  3 weeks

    Verily... it appears we've book-ended the subject reciprocally, to our mutual satisfaction. *insert awkward smiley face thingy here*

  • @devin  3 weeks

    I LOL'd at your "1 is for 1234" entry. Well done!

  • @downburst  3 weeks

    But yeah, the flute is... good, but it clutters the song. He usually just plays solo, and you can really hear what a good guitarist he is.

  • @downburst  3 weeks

    That's cool. Mike's my boy. Great musician and great person.

  • @aerlyn 3 weeks

    Happy FAWMing to you too ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @timfatchen  3 weeks

    Not to worry. I'll continue to vent on FAWMku and listen for more from your Golden Door.

  • @sherrycanary  3 weeks

    Hi Barbara
    Is that fab artwork yours?

  • @aerlyn 3 weeks

    Hey, welcome back! Thanks for your amusing and helpful comments last FAWM and I hope FAWM 2018 goes well for you ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @stephenwordsmith  3 weeks

    Misread 'commodore' as 'commode' and was extremely intrigued at first.

  • @timfatchen  3 weeks


  • @bradbrubaker  3 weeks

    Welcome back! I intend to do more listening/commenting this year and look forward to your stuff once again.

    HB! I hope to hear from you again. Seems we've fallen out of touch lately. Let's fix that.

    You'd prefer me to write my life story, then, like Paul Simon's The Boxer?

  • @tamsnumber4 4 weeks

    Ahhh, a friendly face and sweet voice. How are you? I long to hear your creations. I have been working on an instrumental and more new age vocals and always think back to some of your experimentation, you are an inspiration.

  • @ampersandman  5 weeks

    Thanks for your kind words!

  • @fearlessflight2014  5 weeks

    Ooh thanks for your lovely comment Barbara!

  • @timfatchen  5 weeks

    "Yikes" has nowhere near enough syllables to even summarise what I said at the time and later. However, as FAWm is a family-friendly site, I'll adumbrate that by singing the blues and breathing the blue air. Thank you for your concern, too. I was horrified at the time, as you can well imagine....

  • @timfatchen  5 weeks

    The finger? No, no longer as bad as it sounds (or felt, or was...) Trying to get a kitchen sink off the wall back in start December, the edge bouncing, guillotined part of the fingerpad, skin and the end of an artery off in a "pinch". Three hours in Pt Augusta emergency--now that's an experience too--before painkillers and emergency surgery to stitch it all up--looked terrible. Felt terrible. Then a rather anxious week waiting for the infections which didn't happen. My GP took the stitches out, saying "Use the finger and let Pain be your guide."Which I did and which it was/is. Only just healed enough to take dressings off but I still do a Michael Jackson and wear a rigger's glove if I'm doing anything heavy. The reason for the no-instrumetns: nowhere in the body has such a concentration of nerve endings, and they're all damaged, still recovering. So I'll treat them to FAWM sogns and they'l shut up in despair and humiliation!
