Nancy Rost 12


Wisconsin USA   Jan 2006  

Artist Bio

Influences:   tba

Piano teacher, singer-songwriter, dabbler in various instruments. I've been fawming and finishing every year since 2006. The last couple years were tough due to personal stuff; this year I feel ready to engage more fully again, although work is busier than ever.

Collaborations: I will see what I have time for. If you're interested, it can't hurt to ask. I'm limiting game-type ones to the four-track challenge this time around.

    Hi Nancy, I do have a melody I've been playing with and the overall idea of the guitar treatment, but haven't had a chance to sit down with the instrument to work it out completely and let the organic part happen, as well as record. My partner is going out of town tomorrow for the rest of February, which means I can have 'studio' time whenever I like!! So it should be done soon. However, if you were wanting to reclaim it, or maybe also post your own version because you now have the time, I would completely understand. I admit that I drag my feet when someone else has a stake in the results, because I have concerns about disappointing them, and my go-to coping skill is avoidance. Most of my music collabs have resulted from me picking a set of posted lyrics and preparing the recording before announcing my intent, so I don't feel the anxiety/pressure during the creative process. This is a more difficult process for me, personality-wise. I love the lyrics, just need to get out of my

    Hey thank you for your comments on "Don't Be a Stranger" Nancy! I'm glad you liked the lyrics, it was fun to write, a lighthearted catharsis I suppose.

    Nancy! Thanks for stopping by my song page!

    Thank you for listening to "Vivian", I'm glad you liked my take on the lyrics.

    I look forward to your take on Senior Pickup.

  • @srcoops 5 days

    No one has expressed any interest in Senior Pickup. I live in a retirement community where we are all older than dirt. If you want to take a shot at it, go right ahead.

    Hi Nancy, thanks so much for listening to and comments on a few of my songs. I appreciate it!

    I LOVE it that "Mensch" in Yiddish means "good person" - the Yiddish language is absolutely beautiful and contains so much wisdom!

    No problem....

  • @guatecoop  1 week

    What is on tape 17 right now? I may be in for that.

  • @zecoop  1 week

    Yikes!!! The tape list looks like it disappeared!

  • @ayehahmur  1 week

    Many thanks for your comments, Nancy. Re the chords, one of my favourite things is to open chords up a little, dropping major thirds especially. It can lead to some interesting effects.
    Thanks again.

  • @guatecoop  1 week

    Ok great! I will send it out tomorrow to them.

  • @guatecoop  1 week

    Goodness, I should have let you know! I did get tape 3 and it is ready to be sent off now. That was such a throwback! I forgot how a guitar track is pretty much a complete take!!! I have become spoiled with modern technology! Well, I think that my 4 track is in good shape and sounds good, so that is a good thing. It was fun to play on the tracks that you guys sent to me! I think that this 4 track thing is here to stay..... Seems like everyone really has fun with it.

  • @zecoop  1 week

    I'm sure you'll turn out being right and FAWM will continue to be awesome... Thanks for the good wishes!!! πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  1 week

    Well normally I have way more songs by now... My appendix slowed me down this year. 😞

  • @zecoop  1 week

    Hi Nancy - I'm not going to mark myself as a collaborator on any 4-track collabs until I get my 14 originals. With my health stuff, I'm really wanting to get FAWM done with 14 that I wrote. Since the cassettes are just addition of parts, I might add them on my page later, but I'm going to not get tagged this year at this time. So, maybe tag elesimo since he really composed that one? πŸ˜€

    Hi there! Thanks for checking out Cry Over U. ((hugs)).

  • @elesimo  2 weeks

    Nancy, sorry for the trouble. My deck has only a single speed, and I assumed it was 1X.

    I like @standup's idea of recording and having it transposed up an octave. That was actually how George Martin recorded the solo for The Beatle's "In My Life" β€” it sounds like a Harpsichord but it's actually a piano solo recorded at half the tempo.

  • @standup  2 weeks

    Hi Nancy -- I am probably an idiot. The tape I sent you was recorded at double speed, and I think I recall your deck runs at normal speed. Elesimo and I discussed this, then I forgot that conversation when sending it on.

    Two solutions: Record something weird that will be transposed up an octave when the next person gets it. OR we can find someone with a 2-speed deck for track 3.

  • @redwing 2 weeks

    Nice job Nancy!! Listening to .....Happy day in the garden". Do you play all the tracks?
    I could use some help...How do I post an mp3? I have the recording done and converted to mp3 but now what?? How do I make it into a link? I'm stuck but have songs each day!! want to really get them posted. I also can't seem to get my picture to show up on my profile!
    Thanks for any help......

    Hi, Nancy! I started Tape 11, and this is my first time doing the 4-track challenge. Looking forward for our collaboration! πŸ˜€

    Hi, Nancy. I just signed in to clean things up before the new fawm starts and didn't realize you left a beautiful comment on "Blinded by the Moon". I hope it's not too late to say thank you, even though it's on last fawm's song. Thank you so much. It meant a lot coming from someone as musically wise and experienced as you are.
