    Thank you so much for the congratulations and comments throughout the month! Finally getting around to enjoying some of your music (better late than never, eh?)!

    Ivory Lace didn't get posted until post-FAWM, so that's why you missed it... Thanks for listening!!! 😀

  • @zecoop  1 week

    Trying to listen to some more of yours but my company's firewall won't let me, and you don't have a "download MP3" button to work around it. I'll get to some at home. 😀

    would love to hear your stuff this fawm- sadly, my firefox and the fawm audio player are not playing nice with each other (a problem several of us are having) Basically- if you check 'enable downloads' on each song, we will be able to listen by clicking the download button... (just fyi, if you want to, would be great.. )

    "I went sledding this year and I dig actually hit a birch tree! ha." That's pretty funny -- if you didn't get hurt! Thanks for the visit.

    Hi Dan!
    Thanks for the comments and Yes Indeed the high percussion was done by real Clay Bongos (goatskin head-rawhide tension)- Fun to play.

    Thanks for commenting! Looking forward to hearing some of your songs too!

    Thanks man!! I have an accordion too, but could not be any more terrible at it. That organ makes it possible to get that sound, albeit with clicky sounds. The accordion is noisy too (and heavy, so it is off limits now). I like the two songs I have written on that organ though this year and last, so it was a good addition! 😀

    Really impressed by your Warm Rain on Spring Pond, you really have the touch (& the Fx) for your ambient guitar pieces. Keep on Fawming!
