    Yes, he's on my "to-listen" list for March πŸ˜€

  • @ballyhoot  Feb 27

    Here's the link to my full segment for the texquisite corpse....

  • @cnidaria  Feb 27

    Just sent it in an email. Let me know if you don't get it!

  • @pachufe Feb 21

    Hi Stephen thank you for your words!!!

  • @scottlake Feb 18

    Stephen, I mine Matts tickets to write blog every year and often not in FAWM. It is the most concise source of Beatles tricks on the planet

  • @grenzgaengerin Feb 17

    Vielen Dank....thank you so much for your comment.
    I m so slowly this year to hear Songs....but i ll do my best and Start with your SongsπŸ˜„

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 15

    Thanks for sending that, it certainly gives it more power. I can hear how it works, though I think it becomes a taste thing. I always lean towards less in the way of beats.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 14

    Thanks for your comment on 'Lie Down'. You should send me a file of the kind of sound to which your refer!

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 14

    ha- you got my 'living in the past' tull influence correct, there, sir!


  • @jessica14  Feb 13

    Thanks for your comment on "Sonnenwendlied". It was very helpful and I went back and rerecorded. I am much happier now with the piece πŸ˜€

  • @jessica14  Feb 12

    Hey Stephen, I took my lunchbreak to listen to some of your songs (I didn't make it through all of them, cause there are so many!) ... as a facebook friend does:-) What struck me was your creativity. No song is like the other! It was so much fun to listen and be in for all those imaginative surprises! You have done very well this year so far! Chapeau πŸ˜€

  • @gemhughs Feb 11

    Hey Stephen thanks for the comment on "Dreams Within Dreams". I see you've completed 18 songs... very good but I think your brother desperately needs your help 😊.

  • @unpronounceable Feb 11

    You win at responses! And yeah, that song is a mindfuck; it's all good πŸ˜€

  • @metalfoot  Feb 10

    Though I am a Danielson fan, any correspondence between my music and his is purely unintentional. (Have you heard the joint Steve Taylor and Danielson EP? It's brilliant.)

  • @scottlake Feb 10

    No worries on the sax part. Looks like you have been busy!

  • @postcardhelicopters  Feb 10

    I didn't want to clutter up the magnificent job you did with the Skirmish Template post, but wanted to drop by and say "thanks" for taking the trouble to put it together. It should prove useful even beyond this year's event.

  • @readerwriterpoet Feb 8

    Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment on Ripples and Ponds! There certainly was a lot that I wanted to say, and condensing it all was hard; you're right about almost having an album in that one song! *phew*

    Anyway, I'm playing catch-up on all I've missed, but I'm looking forward to listening to some of your songs! Happy FAWMing!

  • @dawn1 Feb 7

    Thank you for your kind comment on 'Superpowers.' Glad you like it, happy FAWMing! πŸ˜€

  • @scottlake Feb 7

    On keys it's mostly Em7, CMaj7, FMaj7 and Am7

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 7

    Thanks for helping me out...don't know what happened to my soundcloud but I will attempt to fix it...

  • @scottlake Feb 7

    If you have sax, feel free to add it. Wait for a few minutes, I have to upload a new file to SoundCloud. This one ended up with an unintended noise sample in it.
    New version uploaded and checked for spurious samples. Sax away! I'm curious to hear what you come up with. If you want me to mix it, hook me up with an isolated track.

  • @famouspatrick  Feb 6

    Thanks for the kind comment on my "Dragon" song.

  • @russiasaturn  Feb 5

    But of course! I really think your styles would suit each other. Also, 12 songs? How can we mere mortals keep up?

  • @chriddof  Feb 5

    Thanks very much for the comment!

  • @ajna1960  Feb 5

    I managed to get the demo up live on Choose Love @brownium πŸ˜€ Thank you so much πŸ˜€

  • @johnstaples  Feb 5

    Dang man, that skirmish was pretty good to you!!! Great work!

  • @scubed  Feb 4

    Thanks so much for your kind words on "When In Doubt Choose Love"!

  • @zxcvbnm  Feb 4

    Thanks for your comments unfortunately dogs like me better than good looking women do. The owl came from MS Office clip art - I think.

  • @andygetch  Feb 4

    Hi Stephen, holey moley 8 tracks already! Thanks for your comment on my song I Dream of Space Travel. To answer your questions, I was using a Dunlop glass slide and just a guitar pick, I was improvising the track so I might have had the slide further up the neck and hitting the strings kinda sideways at the 1:45 or so point..

  • @ajna1960  Feb 4

    Thank you for the track ! I have added you as a collab for the song, and will add the demo very soon (just fiddling with my hosting) πŸ˜€

  • @jodv  Feb 4

    Thanks for checking out my eccentric skirmish song! I wasn't sure about the chorus, so I'm glad it worked out ok πŸ˜€

  • @aprilm Feb 4

    Trippy but so much fun to create! Thanks!

  • @aprilm Feb 4

    Thanks, man! I would love to beef this song up - and yes, live performance would so much fun!

  • @russiasaturn  Feb 4

    Hiya! Finally getting around to catching up with the people who commented on my collaboration post. I'm down! Send an email if you want?

  • @aprilm Feb 3

    Thanks so much! It warms my heart to know you enjoyed Choose Love!

  • @deafsteever  Feb 3

    Hey, I wanna try Dogfish Head 60 Minute Ale. Sounds like damn good stuff. Unfortunately, though, it's not available in Winnipeg. 😞

  • @metalfoot  Feb 3

    It was fun (and "Beneficial") to get out the trombone! πŸ˜‰

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2

    Many, many thanks, Stephen. πŸ˜€

  • @elainedimasi  Feb 2

    I'm a little embarrassed that I used (sum(2 things)/2) instead of average()! Walking down the hall at work when I thought of it, you made it good of course, but boy I felt like a dimwit!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2

    Yes, finishing off the song for the #firstfruits tag-- not really a 'worship' music kind of guy but my song is def. from that angle!

  • @chrishope  Feb 2

    hi, sent email address below..not got invite..cheers

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Feb 2

    Yeah I remember Guiles and some others (probably you) did it last year, but I saw the post too late this time. I do plan on writing a couple of more worshipful songs this year. Despite being a worship leader I've never liked writing worship songs. So I'm gonna give it a go this time.

  • @kovbleu  Feb 1

    Just emailed you my email address! πŸ˜€

  • @pachufe Feb 1


  • @chrishope  Feb 1

    i'm feeling the ...often the "unders" are .well.. you know πŸ˜€
    "not a keeper in the bunch" lol ..come on ..i rule the self flagellation πŸ˜‰

  • @cynthiawolff  Jan 31

    gosh how I wish I could do something with you and your clarinet.

  • @andygetch  Jan 31

    Hi Stephen!

  • @dragondreams  Jan 31

    Hey Mr Brownium! πŸ˜€
    My ears are awaiting.

  • @gregthehero Jan 31

    Welcome back Sax-man!

  • @mdavisto Jan 30

    Dude, this is a totally weird request, I get that. But. Have you got a higher res version of your profile pic I could have? I have an appointment with a hairdresser in the morning, and that is totally the look I'm going for.

  • @helene  Jan 30

    Happy FAWMing!

  • @thetau  Jan 29

    Hello again
    May the FAWM be with you
    Russ πŸ˜€

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Jan 29

    @brownium !! Welcome to the FAWDer Dome!

  • @tcelliott  Jan 29

    Heya! Let's do this thing. Looking forward to listening.

  • @metalfoot  Jan 28

    Thanks again for the Song Skirmish group and for letting me help moderate the place. I think it really helped me keep going with the music after FAWM ended. Cheers and all the best for 2017!
