Thanks for the nice comment on my skirmish song!
Hey! Vocals on Hungover and Scared are triple tracked - my favourite trick, why double when you can triple - and I sang each line 4 times in a row over the verse (as I find it's easier to stick to the melody of one short phrase than singing an entire verse and then trying to follow the same melody again), ditched the weakest take for each part and then quickly chopped and spliced my three vocal tracks together.
Thanks for the comment!
Thank you for the kind comment!
Thank you for your kind comment. I'll be back soon.
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!!
I've experimented a little with stuff that is outside of the crapcapella genre. Last year almost all of my songs had some sort of backing track. That did not always make them better, but it did make them a lot more work. (My kids, normally my biggest fans, didn't like as many of them.) Eventually, I'd like to try something like Band-in-a-Box, but it's a matter of time and priorities. This year, with my 1026 project, I'm focusing on crapcapella. The end-goal is to get all the lyrics transcribed and fed in to an AI so that the computer can produce songs on its own that are similar to what I would sing.
Thanks for your feedback on my songs. Regarding I Love You Goodbye, that’s a FAWM original from 2015. Lyrics are by @timeandink Timothy Echols. They’re great aren’t they? It’s Tim and a couple of his buds in the inserted pic in that video. We recorded that for Couch By CouchWest a video festival. Sadly that was the last year CBCW ran as I discovered some amazing talent on there - M Lockwood Porter for one.
Check out Tim’s work on FAWM this year. He’s @timeandink
Originally, I was using YouTube with the hope that it would do the brunt of the transcription and I'd just to clean it up. This still works with the smaller songs, but somewhere along the way I hit a threshold and YouTube expects me to do the work myself for the #actually-an-album songs. Still, their tools for transcription aren't bad.
Thanks so much for commenting on Madrid and Perspective Blues. Means a lot.
Yup, it was a lesson in culture, for sure. 😉 Glad it gave you some insight into the ways of my people. (re: Winter Olympics skirmish song)
Hey, thanks for your recent comments! Haha, Glad you can relate fellow troll! That's a high compliment!
I think it the part you're talking about is me sampling a guitar noise then messing with it a bunch, that tends to be my go to for when I need a good plinky, plunky noise
Thanks for your comments on my skirmish songs.
The skirmish is an interesting concept.
Hi and thank you so much- On my Your Chariot Awaits song- it's built in to the keyboard arranger- I set the style and chose the one down one up harmony on the machine...Voila!
Thanks for the words on Chariot! I recorded it on my Samsung Galaxy 7 cellphone sitting on the bed - and there's a lot of editing could have been done - from the scraping the phone across the bed at the end to my clicky G key on the autoharp. This is a keeper though and is slated for full production in March.
Hey! I would like to thank you so much for the fantastic and totally catchy song you made for "Hell-Baby". I love it! It makes me happy and smile, what a great musical take on this! I enjoy listening to it again and again... Thank you so much!
Thanks! And I have to congratulate you - you’re obviously taising your kids to have impeccable taste! 😀
Hiya! what online drum machine are you using?
can you send me a link if you have the time...
cheers and happy Fawming
Thanks for the comments on Run Run Run - and if you want me to add you to cutlery, say so, or not - no pressure at all - it's for funzies 😀 bad is probably better LOL
I just want you to know that your "Ceiling Fan" skirmish song from last year is still one of my favorite things ever.
Oh, and thanks for commenting on 'Evergreen,' I appreciate it!
Yeah, haha, I struggle to continue/develop Ideas so I'm forced to come up with a new one, hope it fits the vibe/doesn't jar too much and tack it on at the end of the previous part
If that works as a means of keeping interest throughout the song then thats a happy accident I'm happy to make again!
Thanks for replying man - I just really liked how clear and crisp they sounded - the Verb/Delay on them is nice n dreamy, very chilled songs, Im digging it
Thanks for the comments on The Cook and the Cutlery. If you'd like to collab on it, feel free 😀 let me know if I should add you as collaborator 😀
Hope you're on board this year!
