Influences: Many. Too many.
February already? Time for my annual "too busy to fawm" message!
I may try to join in in 2017, we'll see. I'm a single dad with no instruments except a uke in the house, which I can't actually play, though.
I'm still trying to assemble a "Best Of Calum Carlyle" if you like, you can assist me, here are the details:
Hi Calum, I heard about you when you posted a comment about a scam-like music website (called "Wally Was His Name"). I've heard some of your music on Bandcamp, so maybe we could collaborate on some music next year?
Hey Calum, thanks for your comment on Kid song. major/minor it is, and I'm definitely a big Harrison fan. well spotted!
Hey! Thanks for your lovely comment. I'm gonna dig into your songs now 😁
Thanks a ton for the long, thoughtful comment! I appreciate all the feedback for sure! Cheers!
Thanks for the listen Calum... I really appreciate it. I've always been a sucker for a 12 string too. My first check after college was for an acoustic 12 string. 😀 I definitely recommend trying a partial capo. They just give you a different palette to work with. I hacksaw'd a regular on around 2000, but now they actually make and sell them, lol.
More reverb? (Celtic CLiche 1) Thanks. I never know who much to add. Comes from the old-school film/tv demands for wholly dry tracks. And: "Cliche" is possibly more for me more than the audience--you would shudder at how many neoceltic measures rampage around in my tired brain. Good to see you back alive and kicking, though not too hard.
Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my song 😁 You're definitely right in that the Grimm brothers drew their tales from stories that were already being passed down (I just called them the 'original versions' as in 'original Grimm brothers versions' because it was easier to say). Some of the alternate versions of the fairytales are even darker (who'd imagine!!).
Thanks for your kind words on my songs.
re sycamore: the lead guitar is a man named mark ort - i wish it were me!
Calum! Good to see you back. I hadn't realised you'd moved to Oz. How's life Down Under?
It's late here but I'll be back to check out your new song.
Hi Calum, hope to hear your new songs.
Australia? I am venturing a guess here that you would make a mighty fine ukulele player! Post a few if you can, I know you have a lot of musical fans here.
of course, duh...
& i try to check out yer pics and politic posts on FB when i can...interesting to know how things are going in other parts of the planet...
