Absolutely. Im very excited to hear what you do with it. Thanks.
P.S. definitely take the lead on drums and bass if you want and send it to me when you can 😁
Oh my goodness Dupletarion Warrior you are AWESOME!! You took the time to write 200 comments and listen to all those songs! Thanks for your hefty contribution to our community. You have 200 thank you’s from your fellow FAWMers and from me! Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!
Thx. For your comments. Sometimes new eyes are in a unique position.
Oh, and btw, I owe you a collab. I'm sorry, I know I failed to do one last time. 😞
We should start our own thread:
"7 Controversial Topics that may end up being locked"
devins at seven, i'm at 11! 😝
Whoa, how 'boat dem leaf's! 😀
Thanks for your nice comments on my songs! To answer your question, I record the piano and vox separately. I have a digital keyboard that actually just outputs wav files, which is nice because then I don't have to worry about noisy neighbors messing up the recording 😀
Man, thank you so much for taking the time to listen to me digging around down the back of country music's sofa... Those couple of songs took me so far out of my comfort zone that I swung right round and nearly found it again!
I think there might be one or two in me before the month is done 😎
Hey if you have music in mind for any set of lyrics, have atter. I only do lyrics. I welcome any musicians to use my lyrics. Just send me a link if you turn it into a song. Cheers
Regarding that forum thread, thank you. x
Thanks for checking out my song! I'm sure the rainstick ghost also appreciated the feedback.
Thank you very much for the comments on "I'm Still Standing"! Glad you liked the track!
The lyrics are sent! 😀 (Just sent now, sorry! 😀 )
Thank you for your kind comment on Bad-ass hooks. I would love to hear a metal-version of it
Thanks for the comment on A Speck of Dust. I promise that no performance enhancing drugs were involved in the making of that song... Just rather a lot of cheap merlot 😎
Hey good sir! I have a set of lyrics ready for you! Where should I send them! Or do you want me to just post them up, and you can post a new song with them after? (I don't mind either way, I'm keeping track of any of my doubles to make sure I get that legitimate 14 😀 )
Devin's got seven!
Great Idea on the "Just shut up" song!
I had already recorded it though!
How did I miss getting you on my watchlist? Love your work! Thank you for your kind feedback on the “9 years” song!
I would like to thank you so much for your wonderful and that profound comment... You are way too kind...
Thanks for the nice comment and the well wishes. First surgery of my life checked off the list (booo). It took 51 years so that isn't too bad, actually. Hopefully the recovery picks up a little and the pain goes down. I have some drumming I need to do!!!! 😮
Ha! Second person to say the track is spooky, when I hadn't even considered such a thing before posting it here. 😁 Must be my goth/metalhead nature sneaking in.
And yes, you're absolutely right - when things come easily, they always seem to be better than usual, to boot! (And that ties in with the goth-creeping comment above. 😀)
:::VST solidarity fistbump:::
Ah, dear sir, despite your close readings and incisive analysis, you nevertheless managed to miss some sub-layers of meticulously crafted nuance!! Mayhaps if you went back and read it again about five or six more times...
Thanks for the shout out and your comments 😀
Thanks for your comments on 'X Marks The Spot'.
I can't explain how I didn't have you watchlisted.
Devin, you're not from Ancaster as in just outside the GTA, are you? I'm schooling in Hamilton currently! Small world. Loved the 80s tribute and looking forward to hearing more from you.
Hey there, thanks for the heads up. Yes, I've had to edit the frustration out of a few of my posts in that thread and just try to carry on, when I probably should have left it alone. Happy FAWMing, and remember... "do what sounds good!"
Crucio away! I'm 99% sure you didn't mean that, but you have my blessing to smelt it into whatever you like. Sacred places do need defending after all. 😉
I'd love it if you took a shot at finishing Osculation. I can send you the chords if it helps. I like the general feel but haven't figured out a destination for it lyrically so it may never get finished otherwise. And I'll buy the first beer. 😀
The guy selling the tele knew me from open stages. It's a Squier standard tele recently professionally set up by a luthier... Who is a good friend of mine. And now I can be a tele wielding rockstar.
How did you know I was looking at a Kijiji telecaster tonight. I'll let you know if I buy it.
Thanks! And yes, beware of Vader. 😝
I appreciate your understanding of the sensitivity to the word noose. I was hoping you would understand. I have very few sensitive spots and I know those are due to personal experiences, so those are my own issues, not a problem with the song. But this one, I think, in the the difficult times we are in here, was worth the mention. Folks in many other countries might not be so sensitive to it. Okay, back to work here ... 😀
Thanks for your comments. I use both MIDI and acoustic piano—that one was a sampled piano. Saving the final products for the real thing!
Happy fawming, Devin Songfather.
Thank you for listening to my song and positive comments. Sorry I linked skirmish to the wrong song!
Hello and thanks for the comment... I too liked the 2.34 mark, even though it is a bit pop-ish, but it's the chorus.. haha...
Yes. We should absolutely do that.
Did I say we are now a 2 cat household?
The craziness is not additive. I think it's a power series muliplier... 😎
Thanks for you comments! 😀
I have the Metal Machine expansion. I used that kit with beats included in EZDrummer 1.
Thanks for checking out If You Want Him. Gotta love one-take off the floor recording with cats in the room! At least they seem to have a sense of timing Lol
I would love to have people sing along to the chorus! This might be a good open mic song
thanks for the comment- oh and that last psychedelic one was recorded wtih an MXL condenser mic someone lent me, plus i got a little tube preamp that gives phantom power, yeah, its great to have slightly better gear!
Sir Dev! Looking forward to hearing what that new studio gear brings!
Oh you know me, I'm always in (it just varies how in I am) but it's looking like full steam this February. Operation Round Two is a go 😉.
Can't wait to hear your stuff this year 😀
Hello! Happy FAWMing!
Have a great FAWM 😀
Hey SuperSkirmish (Feb 2/3) host! I just posted my skirmish notice so if you want to use it feel free to,
1) copy/paste its title into your new post and change all pertinent info in the title
2) copy/paste its body into your new post and change all pertinent info in the body
No, I was the dumb one. Then I wised up.
@devin Hey! So, please please please remind me what song/cue we did. I seriously didn't remember that! And I want to make sure everything is MORE than cool as far as credits/etc.
I have horrible memory, so, I try and write things down or keep them in a Google Doc.
Was this a youtube post? A song on my bandcamp page? Do you have my email address? I think you can contact me via my profile. Let me know!! Holy crap! It makes me ill thinking I could have done something that would result in you feeling put off or left out (artistically OR financially if that were ever an option).
*waves* Thanks for your suggestions. I picked one of them 😉
It's your bio, I have a few concerns. I wish to work on it and I think you can add to it. Too soon?
Hi, Devin! Glad to see you here again.
I think you gave me credit for something I don't deserve. I'm almost positive that I haven't done the 1234 thread, but I have been doing the fake band name thread. Anyway, nice to meet you, Devin. Hope you have a great FAWM!
Me!! I haz ears too...
Devin- thanks- was in toronto for a few days between xmas and new years (jeez it was cold!) but won't be there again till end of march for passover . Also to date have been recording on my PC desktop, rather then the laptop, -- thanks for all the suggestions tho, somehow I'll sort thru this and see whats what.. (and yeah, i bet compatability with all these interfaces is a pain!)
Glad to reconnect via FAWM. I hope it's a good one for you!
Your 'ku coup makin' me cuckoo!
Your haiku is a strong argument for both sides of the forum activity question. Had you already withdrawn from the forums, that one would not have appeared. And yes, a time for everything, and for letting go. Quite a 'ku!
Neun, acht im Tageslicht? Ja. Und ich mag Züge.
Thanks! Nothing to *snicker* at there, clever lad. (Assuming that's the one you meant.)
Oh Canada! Good to see you on here. Let's FAWM the crap outta this FAWM!
I enjoyed your play in the 1234 thread.
omg...devin. I wouldn't have guessed that one two three four thing if my freaking life depended on it. Sorry I screwed up and took someone's turn 🤗🤗
I do indeed have a rock hand... \m/
I'd definitely like to work with you this year, it's been too long. Just gotta wait for the 'go' button 😉
Wow, I'd forgotten about that one - thanks!
Thank for your post on my soundboard, but it's not the same as being with you! So maybe I'll have to write a song where I need you... Hope you are back in filk circles soon. Haven't seen anything lately about Alter Ego gigs either; is anything coming up?
Hey there fellow solder soldier. I'm happy to see you here again.
Hello!! Great to see you again. 😀 Yay for FAWM!!
Hiya, Devin! Just wanted to drop by real quick and say that I hope you've been well and to also say good luck on this year's FAWM!! (Like, not that you need luck or anything!)
I think that might be a waste of good guitars. You could grab me a couple? 😉
Very good to see you here once again! Let's do this thing!
Hiding in your new attic with a notebook, ready to spy and learn. The construction is highly commendable up here!
Hey man! Happy FAWMing to you as well!
Food and naps affect my friskiness quotient for sure. Here's to a great event for you as well fine lad!
Oh yeah, "We Go To 11" is perfect!
I'll play bass and sing. not at the same time. no bogarting.
Sounds like a plan! 😀
What did you have in mind?
Thank you for welcoming me! I have no idea what I'm doing. 😀
Yes, good plan. I'll cover the States, you cover Canada. Together we'll own North America!
Good to see you around. Yes, it's been a long ride, but a fun one.
Yay! Scary voltage is the only voltage! 😁
To all the girls, eh? 🤔
FAWM ate my homework. Nine-fingered Timmy and the Sink of Doom beckons, though not with his damaged ring finger. The nightmares of unit renovation the past 2.5 months have stirred strange thoughts of a HHIC album onCDBaby and Spotify, preferably joint. Did I mention there's a wild honeycomb now growing out of our walls here?
Let's do this thing, and make the month of February.... Filling.
Hey man! When the Jelly stage opens, you are welcome on the mic! Bring it! All of it!!
You betcha I'm in. And it looks like my 17 y/o, Sebastian is giving it a go too. Good to see you.
Who gave you this number!?!?
