    I retook it and got INFP-A

    I haven’t done it in a long time either, what’s the dash at the end for? I only ever remember getting just four letters

    I had many friends that would frequent places like that, so I know what type of compliment that is that this would be a late-night, early-morning jam. The Omnichord really is wonderful on its own, but I put it through my small Orange amp that has 16 built-in effects...just spun the dial and had a good time. I didn't play the Omni to a click, so I'm sure it slips sometimes.

    I'm looking very forward to this audio drama you keep posting samples of, that's a fantastic concept. And I think "Chiquitico" is fine how it is, not sure any other instrumentation is needed, has a great feel to it, and it's a lovely dedication. I got kind of blown away by the ending of "Out Of Mind"...love the gritty guitar sound on that and "Aparecer". Thoroughly enjoying your output as a whole!

    Thanks for your comments on my songs this year! Sorry I've fallen behind on my own commenting up to this point, trying to catch up now. 😀

    Thank you for your kind words on "Lady Jane". I may revisit this song in future to give one or more specifics in each verse.

    Thanks for some good feed back homie. Yeah, my plan was to put harmonies on a few different parts but I ran out of time and didn’t want to spend anymore time on the song. Trying to move along haha. Glad you enjoyed it!

    Thanks for the kind words Mikey San! I’m glad you enjoyed the song. Yeah, I definitely got a little dirtier with the guitar in this one. I actually had a cleaner overdrive for the beginning but kept it heavy because it seemed to be the best for the song overall 😀

    Thanks so much for listening and for the kind words about "For My Best Friends"! I was going for many of those elements, glad it translated.

    Thanks so much for recommending my song! You're a sweetie. I'm falling behind... so I gotta get some work done.... then will come back around a-listening.

    Thank you for your kind words on "Adrift".

    Yes, that picture was taken in Keyport, I play there on a semi-regular basis.

    Hey, I really appreciate the kind words on Solstice. I often get told my songs have a 90's vibe, I think I lean in to a lot of those alt-rock, grungey chord progressions. The Ben Folds comparison is new though! I used to listen to him a lot so I'm quite happy with that!

  • @aprilm  1 week

    Your comments on Next Time really hit me in the feels. Thank you for your kind words.

  • @tiedyehero 1 week

    Of course!

  • @tiedyehero 1 week

    thanks for the comments, friend. I think the phrase comes from The Tower, a card in the major arcana, and after as in hereafter. The way death is often a metaphor for change, the many “little deaths” of life that cast long “tower-like” shadows dividing such a life up into “remember whens” and “that summer we were” and “the golden days of”

    anyway it’s striking to me how many of those changes seem to be unguided, unasked for, the result of random chance, coincidence, and chaos. thus the connection to The Tower card. Which as far as I know has something to do with chaos; look it wasn’t that well researched but it seems to work.

    Anyway I know you didn’t ask for an explanation but sometimes I get carried away
