Martin Quibell 25


Newark-on-Trent UK   Jan 2013  

Artist Bio

Influences:   All sorts, from classic to hard rock, via pop, punk, soul, reggae, ska, electronica, and almost everything.

Profile updated (at last)

I have a vast array of musical instruments - acoustic guitars, classical guitar, electric guitars, travel acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, electric 4 and 5-string basses, soprano ukulele, baritone ukulele, tenor ukulele, mandolins, tambura, sarod, electric harmonium, pianorgan, electronic keyboard, bongos, tambourines, maracas, egg shakers (including FAWM ones), cowbell, triangle, xylophone, marimba, castanets, guiro, zither, didgeridoo, stylophone, melodica, harmonicas (lots of them, both chromatic and non-chromatic), tin whistles, soprano recorders, bass recorder, magic flute, Chinese Bamboo Flute, and more that I can't remember!


My internet usage is limited to whatever my mobile phone provider allows, and the odd wifi hotspot.

Unfortunately, my digital 12-track recorder still needs a replacement hard drive.

    Thanks for commenting on Jazz. I have loved it most of my life. Have had the good fortune to hear some of them live. Jack Teagarden on 52nd St. , Brubeck, The Heath Brothers, Maynard, Kenton, Woody Herman. Arturo Sandoval.and a bunch more. Lucky me!

  • @jibbidy34  Mar 8

    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!!

  • @barbara  Mar 7

    Hi Martin, thanks for reading "Morning Moon" - realistically speaking, I probably won't make music for it; I haven't even really got any sense of what it would be like; I guess it was really a word poetry-puzzle and meter calisthenics more than musical aura that I felt. But I loved what came together! I'm open to someone else doing music for it, though I'm also fine if it doesn't happen.

  • @tiller2  Mar 7

    Hey, Martin, thanks for checking out my lyrics Stay Awhile and Don't Got No Band. (bad me for not putting music to 'em yet, but I will!) I'll be visiting your songs soon.

  • @msculli1  Mar 6

    Hi, thanks for the comment on guilt.

    Your brother has similar job to me, don't worry he'll fix it, he knows what he's doing.

  • @mattfoole Mar 4

    I will let you know when I get music up on my tracks!

  • @writeandwrong  Mar 4

    Dang! I kept trying to make it to your page in February and never made it. I owe you some listens and comments! Congrats on the trophy win! πŸ˜€

  • @khowie  Mar 4

    Thank you for listening and your comments on Deep Freeze! 😁

  • @msculli1  Mar 4

    Hi Martin, good to hear, bet you can't wait to get back to digital. Depending on the make, you should be able to put a new drive in and format it. Shouldn't be too difficult, you've probably found some dude on YouTube to break it down for you already. Cheers.

  • @msculli1  Mar 3

    Hi, nice eclectic mix of stuff. If you don't mind me asking, what's happening with your 12 track hard drive?

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 3

    Awww thanks @taracraig did such an amazing job!

  • @pariskis Mar 3

    Hi, tx for listening and commenting, πŸ˜€ cheers

  • @jaegerin  Mar 1

    Thanks for the kind words, Martin! Looks like you've been hard at work over here - nice one!

  • @lenigmusx1  Feb 28

    Thank you for the kind words on "Bog Resurection". I too am a fan of Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa and others in the vein. I am glad you like the quirky lyrics.

  • @zecoop  Feb 28

    Hey, can you take me off as collaborator for automatic? I'm just putting the tapes on fourtracktape. πŸ˜€

  • @sph  Feb 28

    Wow, that's a lot of new songs to listen to. You're in overdrive mode...

  • @fourtracktape Feb 27

    Boom... πŸ˜€

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 27

    Oh it was definitely inspired by Prince's song Kiss! No hiding that! 😁 I had just been at a jam with a great Prince impersonator who sang that song.

  • @fourtracktape Feb 26

    Hey, we both thought your bass was great! such nice runs. πŸ˜€

  • @fourtracktape Feb 26

    Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated.

    Hoping that it shows up on Saturday... It was not in the mail today. πŸ˜€

  • @zoom  Feb 24

    Hi ! Thank you for your comment on C O R N E R!
    It made me wanna give it a try on a demo recording - and not alter the lyrics first. Thanx again.

  • @barbara  Feb 22

    Hiya Martin! Nice to see you're getting some songs up! I am due at a dinner date in just a moment, but I'll swing back by later on. Thank you so much for the comment on my lyric for the 'intricate tree' prompt. Sometimes it's fun to just write the words that come fluidly and leave it at that.

    Hi Martin, I got my Gretsch back from the technician...I will pen a song with it and post it in the next 2-3 days...Keep those tapes rolling!

  • @sph  Feb 20

    Hi Martin, thanks for listening. I was a away a few days so am behind with listening, commenting & most of all creating...

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 19

    Love your old school song!! Respect. I will hopefully get the Gretsch back this week will try and pen something with it...

  • @oneslowtyper  Feb 17

    Thank you for the kind words, Martin. Feel free to tinker with anything I post, that might spur your musical creativity.

  • @lanasolyluna Feb 2018

    I'm sure what you recorded on the cassette was fabulous. Can't wait to hear it!

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 2018

    Thanks Martin...The Gretsch can be heard on 'Split The Seal' and 'X Marks The Spot'...I just took it in to get a setup and some fret work, so may not have it back before the end of FAWM...But I have one track in progress that features it...Looking forward to listening to your songs.

  • @tamsnumber4 Feb 2018

    Martin, I'm missing you....

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2018

    Hey, Mr Smooth!
    I'm really good, thank you! How about you? 😊😎

  • @lanasolyluna Feb 2018

    Glad you got the tape. May the magic begin.

  • @jamkar  Feb 2018

    Dang! Sorry to hear about your technical difficulties. Hope to see some music this month

  • @elesimo  Feb 2018

    Hi, Martin! Have a great FAWM!

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 2018

    Good luck Martin with FAWM. I have a new guitar - I swapped a guitar for a Gretsch a few days ago, so hopefully that will make an appearance in FAWM.
