    Thanks so much for your lovely and thoughtful comment! Really pleased that you liked the lyrics in particular. πŸ˜€

  • @billwhite51 Mar 16

    thaks for listening to and commenting on three of my songs. you are correct in assuminng measure of a man is pro vegetarian, but the theme is more on the lines of how the eating of beasts was a fall from grace for mankind, through which the measure of a man was somewhat diminished by beastial acts.

  • @sbs2018 Mar 12

    Thanks for the comment on Wisest Woman - I really appreciate your insights.

  • @rainchaser  Mar 10

    You're right, I did sound a bit like him!

  • @rainchaser  Mar 10

    Thank you for your comment on our song, and thank you for the encourage ment! And we really appreciated the listen!! Well at least we were able to get down one of the eras correctly whether it's 60s or 50s! lol I don't know who's George Harris! But I do know who's George HarriSON. πŸ˜‰ Did you mean the former or the latter? I'm glad you liked the las. They came upon my mind while playing the rhythm guitar repetitively.

  • @infilktion Mar 9

    It was easy to hit so many as they are enjoyable to hear!

  • @sapient  Mar 6

    Thanks for pointing me at that 3-way metal collab - it's AWESOME 😁

  • @infilktion Mar 6

    Your album was an enjoyable listen. Amazing guitar work and wonderful lyrics throughout. My favorite was "The Convergence".

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 6

    Thx for the swap - I enjoyed the album. Your guitar work is really good and drives the whole album. Eye of the storm is an out and out hit and in my humble opinion should be the name of the album but maybe that's just me! cheers

  • @moonraccoon  Mar 6

    No One Gets Out Alive as a punk song? Challenge accepted!

  • @hummingbear Mar 6

    Thanks for commenting on "Rocky Shores," glad you liked it!

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 6

    It wasnt intentional. i thought i would try for around 20, 14 plus 6 collaborations. Then i discovered skirmishing on here! And although this has been a big forum topic - i found i wrote as well if not better under pressure.

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 6

    Thx for your comments you went above and beyond, more than just my album.

  • @zecoop  Mar 5

    Thanks for all the listens - I'll be hitting your album up (whichever I haven't already heard) soon!

    p.s. - Can't You Sew - According to Jay, there is nothing in the lyrics to 'get', lol. He just went with whatever came to him and knows it makes no sense. πŸ˜€

  • @kovbleu  Mar 5

    Thanks for listening to our band collab! Yeah, Chris tried to get to that solo this past weekend but it just didn't happen yet. As soon as we get it down we'll update the demo.

    Here's another one that has 3/4 the band on it and DOES have some amazing guitar work and lead by @slawbleu on it. Our bassist played drums because Chris did the extra guitars and already put bass on it. So of course live, we'll all be switching that around so John's on bass and Rob's on drums.


  • @tamsnumber4 Mar 2

    Congrats on your trophy!

  • @resonut123 Feb 28

    Thanks for the nice comment on my song Either Or.

  • @chrishope  Feb 28

    thanks for the listen/comment, i switch between cheap and a good single malt daily

  • @ahasuerus Feb 27

    Awesome guitar skills man!

  • @yam655 Feb 26

    When I started, I improvised to work with melody or rhyme and polished things up normally. These days, though, I just start recording, open my mouth, and sing a song or an album. All of this year's stuff have been fully improvised.

  • @lenigmusx1  Feb 24

    Thank you for the comments on "All in or nothin'"! I am just catching up sorry it took so long.

  • @oblivionratula  Feb 23

    Thanks for the listen on "Quaker Conversation." I've gotten a few comments on the tone of that Tele - it's funny it was captured by a portable recorder in the middle of the room and two cheap amps (and a couple pedals). A lesson to keep it simple. Thanks again!

  • @jkolb  Feb 23

    If you have a moment check out the melody a friend of mine put to "Quiet Gentle moments". Thanks for the kind words on the lyrics

  • @highmountain Feb 20

    Thanks for your comments!

  • @billgcaldwell  Feb 20

    Thanks for your comments on Hard Whiskey Secret. My first this year and I think still my favorite.

  • @williamhaight Feb 20

    Thanks for the feedback on Mike Pence. I appreciate it.

  • @ayehahmur  Feb 20

    Hey, thanks so much for commenting on Waking Up. Much appreciated.

  • @repsurepa Feb 20

    Ps. very good to hear that the lyrics don't seem too clumsy! Thanks for commenting on that as well!

  • @repsurepa Feb 20

    Thank you so much for listening! I'm glad you enjoyed it (and the banjo : ) )

  • @brandondale72 Feb 20

    Thanks for listening to "Rain". Your kind words mean a lot!

  • @gromwaf Feb 20

    Thanks for the comment... I am super glad that you noticed the nods to the national anthem...

    stay true...

  • @jodv  Feb 20

    Thanks for your comments on "And Now, Explode!" You're the bomb! (Get it?! Hyuck hyuck hyuck)

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 19

    Thanks for the comment on my collab track with Colleen! Glad you liked it!

  • @aprilm  Feb 19

    Thanks for stopping in for a listen to I Know Nothin'. I'm way off schedule but late night recording always seems to go so well! Thanks for your kind words

  • @oaksnprairie  Feb 18

    Thank you for your encouraging comments on Aerial View. I would definitely like to develop it further.

  • @coffeeinthesink  Feb 16

    Since you're a DBT/Cooley fan, I wonder if you listen to John Moreland? I'm actually seeing him tonight.

  • @defaultdave  Feb 16

    Thanks for swinging by and commenting on "Shuttering Up || Shutting Down". I was really happy with how that alto sax came out.

  • @blackrose1313 Feb 16

    Thanks for the feedback!

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 16

    Wow thanks so much for mentioning me in recommended song thread. I may remix the track in some parts but yeah it was a slog! worth it though

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 16

    Wow, I'm humbled. Thank you very much for the comment on "Invincible". I don't play my own music for a living no. Maybe this year I'll actually release my EP that I have in the works though, haha.

  • @berni1954  Feb 16

    Thanks for giving "My Way or the Highway" a pin. It has got such positive feedback that I think I am going to have to persuade the lads in my blues band to do it πŸ˜€

  • @majordanby  Feb 15

    Sshh, don’t tell anyone but I did those bits by accident, so did it again later so it looked like I meant to do it πŸ˜‰

  • @unclephilly Feb 15

    Thanks for the kind words dude!

  • @whispermouse  Feb 15

    If I end up buying a harmonica rack for my kazoo, you know which tune I'm going to use it on...

  • @vaticanvamps14 Feb 15

    Hay brother thanks for all the very encouraging comments and analysis. Can’t wait to dive into your works tonight

  • @vaticanvamps14 Feb 15

    Hay brother thanks for all the very encouraging comments and analysis. Can’t wait to dive into your works tonight

  • @kptactical Feb 15

    Thanks for your comments on "I Met a Girl".

  • @soulbird Feb 15

    thanks for your insight into 'red rose guitar'. Now if I only HAD a red rose guitar. And yeah, I do believe that songs written by musical instruments are better than songs written by people forcing themselves to write songs!

  • @soulbird Feb 15

    thanks for your comments on 'better in the rain'. I love your screen name and will listen when I can!

  • @oblivionratula  Feb 15

    I'm glad you enjoyed the writeup, on "Train Station Soudscape." Thanks for the listen.

  • @spinhead  Feb 14

    "Tonight's moon"β€”huh. Totally missed that. Thanks.

  • @rustyp  Feb 14

    Hey, πŸ˜€

    Thanks so much for your kin comments on "Your Grace Is Amazing." Yeah, I kndof like the idea of turning phrases too. πŸ˜€

  • @faststrings Feb 14

    Hey Driftwood1, thanks for the comment on the song I appreciate it. Your friend Jimmy

  • @amusia Feb 14

    Thanks for the kind words on Underworld!

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 14

    Thx for your comments on slow motion. I had some pretty nice lyrics but Kraysie did an amazing job with them.

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 14

    Thx mate. It was written almost as it happened no better time to capture Raw emotion. We are very positive people and things are improving

  • @bjunker  Feb 13

    Great to be back! Thanks for the comments on "story man". That bass line was fun to work out. On "Always you" I thought you might have chosen those pronouns carefully -- there's a nice ambiguity there, for me anyway as a listener!

  • @whispermouse  Feb 11

    "With a voice like the sound of a lead coffin lid slamming shut..."

    I knew I could count on you to get it πŸ˜€

  • @theidleowl  Feb 10

    Thanks for the kind words! I'll be listening to your stuff during my next listening session!

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 9

    Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Here’s your badge. Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 9

    Thanks you very much for the kind words on my track!

  • @pabrizzer Feb 9

    Cheers on the visit to A Gust of Wind.

  • @dutch1967 Feb 8

    Thank you for those comments on All Grown Up and Seasons. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for caring. FAWM RUUUUULES!

  • @oldlostjohn  Feb 8

    Thanks for your interest. I'm around for sure, just taking some time to get going. I should have a couple of songs up in a day or two. I see you're much better on schedule than I am!

  • @nuitarie Feb 8

    Thank you for your comments on my songs! I'll give a listen to yours a bit later, but I'm definitely curious 😁

  • @fonte  Feb 7

    Hey driftwood! (Great name!). Thanks a lot for the comment on 'Stay' really appreciate it. I wasn't sure about the bass line but once I started playing I couldn't stop so left it in!

  • @boostock Feb 7

    Thank you for taking the time to comment and listen to my song. Appreciate it! All the best! /Peter

  • @tjeff  Feb 7

    Thanks for listening/commenting! Much appreciated.

  • @mkd  Feb 7

    Thanks for your comment on Homework Sucks! I hadn't consciously done that with the growing vocals, but it's a cool thing to have happened! Thanks for pointing it out!

  • @dani312 Feb 7

    Hey, thanks for your comment on my tune! I love that you were specific about the exact moment of the song that you felt was effective. That kind of feedback is really helpful!! 😁

  • @whispermouse  Feb 5

    One advantage of recording in the morning: you get a nice relaxed lower octave πŸ˜€

  • @musicbyzac Feb 4

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on "My Old Man" - It's my first FAWM and I've always been more of a lyricist, so getting a vocal compliment is both unexpected and appreciated.

  • @jessicagraae  Feb 4

    Thanks for your comments on In the Forest. You know, I had the same thought- can I call this Americana? LOL.

  • @nathansurles Feb 4

    Thanks for your comment on my song. Was very happy to get the ball rolling.

  • @leah0k  Feb 4

    Thanks for the song comment! I really appreciate it - looks like you have two done already - I’m going to have a listen now πŸ˜€

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 4

    Thanks for listening and commenting!

  • @andybalham Feb 3

    Thanks for the comment. Keep chugging the whiskey! πŸ˜‰

  • @blueone  Feb 3

    I appreciate your comments - they're very kind of you! I'll be keeping tabs on you for sure.

  • @idonotlikepeas Feb 3

    Thanks for the comment; I really appreciate it. Good luck this year. πŸ˜€

  • @cleanshoes Feb 3

    Thanks so much for your kind comment on Heading West!

  • @cloudboy  Feb 3

    Thanks for listening to "Out of Mind". The intention was my general anxiety/frustration with what's going on in the US. But it's cool that you caught onto the political statement.

  • @kludge  Feb 2

    Glad you liked The Joke Song! I tend to use laughter as a way to drive the blade in deeper with my songs, but this is almost self-parody. πŸ˜€

  • @wacha  Feb 2

    Thank you for your kind words on "Adrift"!

  • @tuomoh Feb 2

    Thanks for your comment on my song. Gotta try using a bottle of whisky for my next song. 😁
