    Oh yeah and feel free to get rid of all or any of the dummy-melody track so that it doesn't get in the way of vocals.
    Same goes for other tracks, edit them as you wish. I can also re-record anything that doesn't work (or the whole thing if you want to play drums more freely or something).

    My gmail handle is aarni.vilen if anything comes up.

  • @arkka  Mar 11

    Thanks for the comments! ...and sorry for a late reply. 99 % of my guitar tracks are Mesa Boogie Triaxis -> 2:90. I also use Maxon AF-9 with really subtle settings, mostly for leads. Hangover was made with random objects around my apartment.

    I don't usually do collabs but I made stems of Drunk 'n' Blues if you still want to take a shot at it. Excuse the nasty edits and low levels (it's a FAWM demo after all, hah). I don't have lyrics but just write/improvise something. AFAIC, anything goes.

    Thank you very much for the comment on "Sushi Sunday". That sure was a fun one to write!

  • @santadharma Mar 2

    Definitely first time we’ve been compared to Philip Glass. Cool! Thanks for stopping by.

  • @zecoop  Mar 2

    Thanks for listening... I'm excited about playing that one live. It came together so fast. Our sound as a band goes all over the place and keeps shifting. Our album from 2015 has a bunch of different styles blended, but those were mostly Stacy's older solo songs, morphed into band arrangements, except for a couple. The new songs we have added in the last three years are even more diverse. And we are getting songs together from all of us as writers now, which I love. 😀

  • @lanasolyluna Mar 2

    Thanks for the comment. Lyrics were loosely about Santa Cruz, so not far off. 😊

  • @riverbear14 Mar 2

    Yes.. I use logic pro or whatever it's called. I play the keyboards and I did create this sound. I am not sure how I did it now. lol! I know little about equipment

  • @zecoop  Mar 1

    Yep... Lanasolyluna turned it into California Crush. 😀
    I'll get listening to your music soon. FAWM break for a few.

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 27

    Thanks a lot! Dropped you an email!

  • @kovbleu  Feb 27

    Thank you for all of the kind comments you've been leaving me. I'm wrestling with finishing but I promise to be back to hear more of your songs!! You know I will. 😀

  • @dunwich  Feb 27

    Thanks for the comment! Yeah, I basically imagine percussion in all of my pieces, I'm just terrible at programming them.

  • @tunecat  Feb 26

    Thanks for your soundboard message.. and listening to my tracks.

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 25

    Wow I'm humbled, thank you so much for the warm comments on "When A T-Rex Cries". Very glad you liked the track. Drums wouldn't actually be a bad idea, at least down the line. I don't play drums myself at all (I at least think I'm decent at programming them, but it's not really the same thing), and great session drummers aren't growing on trees. How do I contact you post-FAWM if there would be need for drums?

  • @standup  Feb 24

    Interesting, I didn’t know about Fredonia State. I just wanted a name for a fictitious country, so went with Freedonia (from a Marx Brothers film).

  • @susyblue  Feb 24

    Hi Chad I'm not sure if you got my email? If not I am falling very behind in my fawming and might not get to Lattice point this week sorry 😞(((( But you have already posted it so could always try to add it later if I can

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 24

    Thank you very much for the compliments and the comment on "Make Peace With Me Darling"! Very glad you liked the track!

  • @keithcuts Feb 24

    Hi Lenig, THanks for the comment on my tennis song. Lol no the story is about me and my brother. The only way I can get detailed stories out that quick (skirmish) is to pull from my own life. But the detail about a thousand backhands was pulled from Andre Agassis biography book. I was never THAT committed ha

  • @ductapeguy  Feb 24

    If you would like to try some lyrics and vocals on Weird and Unreproduceable , please have at it. I did what I could with that song and moved along.

  • @iwilleatyou Feb 23

    Ok now I feel like an idiot. Sorry, i assumed it was MIDI but not because the playing....ah ferget it. I put my foot in my mouth. BAH!!!
    Thanks for getting back to me with the info. *smacks head with hammer*

  • @sueawesome Feb 22

    you must have posted right when I got off fawm last night to finish a lyric I've been working on!!

    !!! holy moly I'm speechless

    that was such a HUGE production, cannot believe you came up with that.. I'll write more later when I can listen to it a few more times and figure out what on earth to say

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 20

    Thank you so much for the comment on "Svårt Att Nå Dig"! It was surprisingly fun singing in Swedish! I think last time I wrote something in Swedish was some 5 years ago. Maybe because rock music sung in swedish is so rare, and I usually don't feel comfortable singing in my native language.

  • @sueawesome Feb 20

    do it!!

  • @sueawesome Feb 20

    would it be all piano?? Lol

    that actually could be really interesting

  • @sueawesome Feb 20

    have at it!

  • @susyblue  Feb 18

    Hi Chad, sure thanks for asking! I'm not sure when I'll get to it but definitely before the end of Feb! Send me the track to susyhull@gmail.com

  • @tunecat  Feb 18

    I've just realised, you're in Amsterdam and you're into new music.. I wonder if you've come across an old friend (sadly we don't keep up) Augusto Forti. If so, say hi would you? All the best

  • @riverbear14 Feb 16

    Hello. yes, I have a usb and a few midi keyboards, but I am actually a guitarist. The sounds are settings through logic pro. Thank you very much!

  • @dani312 Feb 2018

    Hey, thanks so much for your feedback on my music! I really appreciate it. Looks like I might have found one of the only other classical turned trad player, who is also an instrumental music teacher on here! Sweet!

  • @zecoop  Feb 2018

    I have a direction in my head that I'd like to take that one and a few singers that are seeing what they think (Stacy said she downloaded and was trying things a while ago). Songs are mysterious and can go directions you don't expect.

  • @lenigmusx1  Feb 2018


  • @zecoop  Feb 2018

    ...but for now, can you take me off as collaborator? 😀

  • @zecoop  Feb 2018

    No worries man!! Just have a lot going on and with the appendix, getting to 14 is suddenly a little less of a sure thing. I appreciated you taking on that song and am impressed how you got it figured out so fast. 😀

  • @zecoop  Feb 2018

    Hey - Nice work on the Appendix tune! That sounds really wrong, lol. Anyway, I was busy recording and didn't see your message. I was going to say that I wanted you to post it on your page but not to tag me as a collaborator yet. I want to get to 14 songs before I have any extra song versions posted. That's a really bluesy take and it makes me happy that you got out the sax. I need to get out my trombone at some point.

  • @thefuneralcrasher  Feb 2018

    Thank You...really pleased you enjoyed it...I love The Clash!

  • @zecoop  Feb 2018

    It's a miserable feeling... I commiserate now. Yikes. Thanks for listening. You are welcome to record your ideas... Let me know how it turns out. 😀

  • @riverbear14 Feb 2018

    Thank you! I never know where I'm going with this stuff. lol!

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 2018

    Wow, thanks for the comments on "Help Yourself". I'm humbled. Initial plan is to do a version with female vocals also, so there will be 2 versions of the track. But cool idea to sing it together!

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 2018

    Thanks a lot for the nice comments on my tracks! Never listened much to Eric Johnsson, sorry 😀 Glad you liked my stuff. And you have some great stuff on here too. Keep up the good work!

  • @zecoop  Feb 2018

    Welcome back! 😀

  • @pfaffbrill  Feb 2018

    Thanks for listening and the nice comment. Much appreciated!

  • @frozenlonesome Feb 2018

    Thanks for listening and your kind comments on The City Closes in. Appreciate the encouragement.

  • @kovbleu  Jan 2018

    Hi Chad!!!!! Happy FAWMing! 😀
