Thanks for your comment on 3 shots of Applejack, singin' sweet Caroline. Not sure if I'd want to insert the melody from Sweet Caroline into it; that's an interesting idea. I'll have to think on it. Too tough to put to music for now.
All I need is the tempo and a high quality MP3 file.
I grew up in Wedgewood (my parents are still in that house), and went to Country Day School as a faculty brat. My sister was at Southwest High, and most of my church friends were at Pascal.
Thank you for letting us know about our reverbnation link! I fixed that 😀
Thank you for your kind word on my songs! Yes, I Wanna Be Metal was a LOT of fun to make 😀
Wow. Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by, listening and commenting on so many of my songs. I am out of time for listening, but I want to dig around here when I get a chance....
Fun to find that you're from Fort Worth: I grew up there, and still get back to visit my folks there.
Thanks fo taking the time to listen and comment on my songs. I haven’t shared any songs on the PGmusic site but if I get a better vocalist, I might. 😉
Thanks for your nice comments onThe Worker. I appreciate your kindness.
Glad we could get it to work out. Not sure why it wasn't playing, as it is uploaded to the same place all the others are. She wrote the words at work, apparently (on lunch break OBVIOUSLY) and then recorded them that night. Couldn't be happier with how that song turned out. Thanks for the listen. 😀
Thank YOU for all the listens and nice comments. I really appreciate it. The only reason there isn't a download button on Shades and Shadows is because the 4th member of the band hasn't gotten his guitar part yet... But I'll switch it anyway. Check back in five minutes. 😀
Thanks for the empathy on Mediocre Blues. 😉 Looks like you had an impressive FAWM.
Fair enough. I hear something very similar to your point about summer from my brother in North Carolina. Buuuutttt... I'm definitely 100% a hot weather person. I can't stand winter. So why do I live in Michigan? Family and the great lakes. I can see us heading to warmer places during the winter when we retire. Thanks for listening!
You did a lot of commenting today!! Thanks for taking so much time on my tunes, it is greatly appreciated. I did put songs on the BIAB user showcase for quite awhile. I just searched the songs list with "Emmrich" and it looks like I haven't posted a new one since 2014! In 2015 I did a cd at bandcamp where I used BIAB extensively on 12 of the 14 songs. You can listen for free (or just sample) my biab stuff at https://crowssayveeeh.bandcamp.com/ . I used biab a bit in 2016, but in 2017 or 2018 I haven't used it at all. But I do like it quite a lot and will break it back out. I am trying to get through the "who's still here list", but I will try and camp out at your page for a bit also!
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time commenting on all songs on my profile page! Much appreciated.
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!!
Thanks for listening and commenting, Jim.
Thanks for the comments! For "Bright Future" - Yeah, it starts off slow, I really like long buildups so I wanted to try to do that. I'm glad you thought the payoff was worth it!
Thanks for your comment on "Follow My Footsteps"
I really enjoyed my two collabs with Sheila. She is such a life-affirmative writer.
thx for comment on She's a strange one. I agree really enjoyed the music added on this collab!
I do write music for all my songs. I do not like the recording/ performing process. I am working on solutions. Thanks again for ALL the reviews and taking the time to read my lyrics.
Thank you for your kind reviews!
Thank you for your comment on "I'm Liking What We're Doing". And I agreed, FAWM should be fun, and it was a good collaboration. I very much appreciate the listen!
Loved your comment on "The Climb" - Thanks so much.
Thanks for your comments on a number of my songs, Jim.
Describing where I am from is kind of difficult. But here is a very potted biography:
Born in Liverpool, England, to a family with Irish roots on both sides of the family. I spent my childhood in Lagos, Nigeria, attending a US school there- very handy as I am comfortable using US spelling or UK spelling.
I have an Irish passport and I have lived for the last 32 years in Catalonia where I translate from Catalan into English or else teach translation at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
All my adult life I have either been a solo singer-songwriter, wrote songs for theatre plays, or else formed part of a band. I currently front "The Saturday Blues Project" and contribute new songs to the Seasons of the Ukulele on Ukulele Underground dot com every week.
Thanks for your very encouraging comment on my "Old Man Walking an Old Dog"
Thanks for your comments on my songs! So appreciated!
Thank you so much for your kind words on my songs. It's really not all that often that someone takes the time to listen to every single track and leaves honest feedback.
I could take a few lessons from you! I always appreciate it!
Thank you for spending so much time listening to my songs, and your lovely comments
Hey mate, thanks so much for listening to all of my songs - what a marathon effort! Really appreciate you listening and all your kind words.
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!!
Thank you for your kind comment on mine and Cindys collab.
Ansolutely not offended but you are right on thos case it was intentionally bursted instead of burst. Sonce it gives more effect (in my interpretation of darkness)
Thank you very much for the comments on "Help Yourself". Plan is to do a female vocal version also, so it's in the making.
Thanks for your kind words on a couple of tunes, Jim! Happy FAWMing!
A fun song and video! Nice work.
Thanks for your kind review of my output thus far. 😉
Thank you Gem for your kind words on A Pinhole Through the Veil. I'm glad you liked it. Watchlisted you right now. 😀
Thanks for the comments. I really appreciate them. I looked up Matthew 17:3, and you are right. I was just trying to convey his thoughts at that moment of his life. One again, I appreciate what you said
Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to my songs and leave such thoughtful comments! I really appreciate it.
Hi Gem. Thank you so much for your many comments. About that crescendo, it is very easy to do in Reaper. You just add a volume envelope that automatically changes the volume of a certain tracks.
Everything else but vocals and guitar is Yamaha PSR-770 keyboard. 😀
Hey, thanks for taking the time to listen to my songs and for your great comments. Much appreciated. Like you, earning a living gets in the way of my songwriting, but it's my biggest hobby. I look forward to listening to your work this month.
Hi there. Thanks for checking my songs. I appreciate the comments.
Thank you soooo much for listening to so many of my songs. I hope I can return the favour when I get from vacation!
Thanks for all of your comments. Where are your songs?
Thanks so much for your feedback on Stick.
Thanks for taking time to listen to my songs and thanks for the feedback.
Thanks so much for listening to my music and for the kind words! Very nice! I'll check out your tunes when you post them. 😀
Hi Gem. Thanks for the comments. Are you going to post any songs this FAWM? I hope so.
Thanks for your comments on Diamond Blue Eyes. Am l looking forward to hearing you songs. Kind regards
Thanks for the nice comment on "Down To The Ocean"
Thanks for listening to "If I Miss your Funeral." I listened to "Pictures" and the lyrical twist threw me for a loop! Very cool.
Also worthy of note is that I visited Forth Worth for the first time this year. I visited the Stockyards and had some tasty ice cream at Melt.
Thank you for the listen to Good Day! I notice you are a fellow Texan. Happy FAWM!
