    Hi @berni1954 , please feel free to try some lyrics out on "Shining Redux", but don't release out into the world outside of FAWM without discussing with me first, as I will likely try to include some version or another of this song on the album I release this summer. Also, please take a listen to my original version of that song, including lyrics. http://fawm.org/songs/83878/ Happy FAWMing!

    Thanks, Berni...I checked out your video...put a big smile on my face! You make some very good and totally valid points too. And make it fun. A great way to encourage thought and conversation over it all. Ta! Ps Perhaps it is...

    Are you going to have a go at a Skirmish?
    One starts in 4 and a half hours.
    A song theme is given and you have an hour to post a song.

    Thank you for your comment on my song - I have now gotten around to typing up lyrics. Feel free to revisit Me.

  • @pabrizzer 2 weeks

    Thanks for the visit to Is This What You Came For? Agree with your comment. You see part of me WANTS there to be an accounting.
    I want there to be a hell. The fact that I'd most likely end up there dampens my entusiasm for the concept though. Cheers Berni.

  • @pabrizzer 2 weeks

    A Gust of Wind - happy for you to have a go at some lyrics for this one Berni. No need to stick with the title idea.

  • @pabrizzer 2 weeks

    Sail Your Sturdy Vessel - thanks for the listen Berni!
    13 years of school is a pretty daunting voyage.

  • @pabrizzer 2 weeks

    Sittin' by the Harbour - cheers Berni.
    That noise was some cicadas in the tree above me. When there are many of them the noise can be deafening.
    Not a rework as far as I know...but just basically a 12 bar blues variation.

    Cheers Berni (The Way it Goes).
    Thanks for the heads up on this place.
    Will try and get 14 done...

  • @tinattd  2 weeks

    Thanks for your comment on my song These four strings! You're right, the "play it on the daily" line is awkward - was trying to fit a verb on the stressed note. I like your amendment - will change it if I re-record.

    ' ... no matter how good your Spanish gets, they will still say: "That song still doesn't sound very Spanish" ' Ha! I believe it! Trying to learn the language has opened my mind to all sorts of deep cultural differences I had no knowledge of. The diversity is beautiful and fascinating. How is your catalan language after 30 some years?? I'm endlessly frustrated by it because in dinner conversations my friends will drift into speaking catalan and my wife will answer their questions in castillano and I will completely lose track of the conversation. πŸ˜€ It requires such flexibility! Thanks for the language tips... I have some more songs in the works and I fear they will have even more grammatical errors. πŸ˜€ I'll be grateful for any edits you can spot for me in the near future!

  • @kraftec 2 weeks

    Hey, thanks for the collab offer on my song Born Dead, but I already have a collaborater. I'd stil love to hear your version though. There is a chance my other collaborater might pull out though, I'll let you know. If you want me to mix your vocals with the track and send it to you so you can post it as your own (giving me some credit of course πŸ˜€ ) , I can do that.

  • @mmmmarcus  2 weeks

    Thanks a lot for the nice comments on my tracks! Wow that's some nice comparisons right there!

  • @asladders 2 weeks

    RE: Multi-track overdub . Thanks! I'll look into that portable gear (Boss BR-80). I like the simplicity as you described it, and an added drum-machine would be a nice feature for tracking. The vocal effect is really cool! Rock n' roll to my ears.

  • @williamhaight 2 weeks

    Thanks for the kind words on Mike Pence.

  • @wacha  2 weeks

    Thank you for your feedback on "Adrift", glad you liked it.

  • @jessicagraae  2 weeks

    Thanks for your comments on I can't get to you. I appreciate them!

  • @asladders 2 weeks

    Checked out Michael Chapman and I certainly hear the similarities in reference to my tune, Careless Wave. I gotta say he's certainly keen with his approach to playing and style. It's deliberate and unique. Reminds me of Neil Diamond a little bit. I used an open tuning by the way, drop D on my song. Do you double track vocals? Is that tracking one octave above or below when you record?

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    That is very interesting! I have some very vague superficial knowledge of Catalonia (just part of my general accumulated knowledge from reading etc), so my apologies to any offence πŸ˜‰ And how does an Irishman find himself in Catalonia (aka NOT Spain)?

  • @acousticmaddie  2 weeks

    Thanks for commenting on Mary Celest. very appreciated.

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    Thanks for checking out Temporary. Cool idea on the lyric at the end. I may consider making that change, if the mood strikes!

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    Yes, I have actually written 9, but one is a "double posting". You write as many as you feel inspired to write. πŸ˜€ There are really no rules. And if there were, I would likely break them anyway lol

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    Sorry for multiple messages - I added the lyrics that were written by @kahlo2013

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    My, oh my, dear Spanish gentleman, so pleased I've got you in my spell. That's a helluva compliment

    There are lyrics but I didn't totally stick to them - yes, singing the blues means not always following the lyrics lol

  • @soulbird 2 weeks

    hi, no just i like the idea of more slide but i'd need someone who can play....

  • @soulbird 2 weeks

    thank you for comments on my song - and of course i'd be delighted to have you play guitar on it! it was ging to be mandolin, but I hadn't tuned the guitar
