Thanks for playing Senior Pickup. I am a resident of a retirement community and we all have a few issues. It's more fun to joke about them than complain. Hope to be here again next year.
Thanks for listening, Nancy, and the heads up on Stanley Jordan... I may have listened to his guitar work before, but not with enough attention. He's awesome!
Thanks for listening and commenting on "Take The Bait". Glad you liked it. I haven't listened to Elvis Costello much but I often get compared to artists with whom I'm not familiar.
Took a quick peek at your website. Is that an Ashbory bass you're playing? Bit of a strange bird that. A friend of mine sold a ton of those through eBay a few years back.
Just found the info about who played what and added it. 😀
Thanks ..Nancy..it was an error
It's up! Thanks for the heads up. Things are good. 😀
Thanks Nancy! I don't think anyone has told me to get a 4-track machine since 1996 or so. 😀 I just might.
Thanks for the love on Destination Irrelevant. I love hearing my little one sing.
Yea, I get it with the accordion. I have one and it's super heavy (and I stink playing it). I just stick with the pianorgan these days for the same (basic) sound. 😀
Thanks for commenting on "Drama Llama." It was good to vent!
Ugh... That word... And yes, I'm listening to it hitting my bedroom window right now. I refuse to look out. It'll be hard driving to work with my eyes closed. I can't wait for warm weather. Thanks for the listen!
Thank you for your kind words on "This Pile Up", my intention was to be much more aggressive on the chorus but there is only so much noise I can make at an early hour on the weekend.
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!!
Aw, you could moderate your zong back, probably. 😀 I know, silly avatar/emojis. I'm sure I'll be tired of them in about 20 seconds... 19... 18...
I listened to all your downloadable songs yesterday and enjoyed them immensely. I didn't have a connection to comment, but I plan to. I look forward to your annual collaborations with Mike and Eric.
Yes, an odd time signature common drums would certainly mix things up. If you send me a copy of the drum track I can try to master it a few different ways ahead of time.
Thanks for your lovely comment. I was actually trying to underplay (or even hide) the fact that it was about my kids. Either I'm too obvious or you're too perceptive. 😀
thank you 😀
actually, 39 !!!! (check the alterego, who i just linked to)
Hey! A fellow piano teacher! Awesome! I'm glad to introduce you to a new style, and I'm gonna go listen to your stuff now...
Thanks ...any info on synth's would be helpful
I had so much fun with my little casio
want to start planning for next year's
four track cassettes!!
what kind of "toy synth" did you use on the first "four track"
Congrats on the win, Nancy! I was pretty sure it would only be a matter of time. In case you might not remember, but I still play this mental "keep up with Nancy" game in my head. And I can't remember if I ever got past you or not, but it was always cool trying. This is no different. I keeps me moving forward creatively. Woo hoo!
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 Nancy, you make me melt. I am so inspired by you. Wisconsin forever. WWWF.
Thanks for checking out my song, Nancy!
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.
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!
Maow eow! *purrrrrrrr* 🐾
[Thank you for listening and commenting!]
What is on tape 17 right now? I may be in for that.
Yikes!!! The tape list looks like it disappeared!
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.
Ok great! I will send it out tomorrow to them.
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.
I'm sure you'll turn out being right and FAWM will continue to be awesome... Thanks for the good wishes!!! 😀
Well normally I have way more songs by now... My appendix slowed me down this year. 😞
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? 😀
Hi there! Thanks for checking out Cry Over U. ((hugs)).
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" — it sounds like a Harpsichord but it's actually a piano solo recorded at half the tempo.
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.
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! 😀
Forgot my own brother... How embarrassing. 😜
I added Rob's address to the list 😀
Hey there! Sure, I will take tape 3. Thanks!
Be glad to take a crack at any Nancy lyrics! I had the flu last week... I'm around now.
Do you want to go 2008 stylee and write the lyrics line by line in a Google Doc?
Fairly full, but always got room on my dance card for you! Do you have anything specific in mind?
What a wonderful surprise! I'd love to try that collab with your lyrics. I just made my email button visible, so fire away!
Hi , Words With Friends Queen!
Hi Nancy. I know we’re living in a hoop-free world now ( 😞 )... but do you think you’ll still do explore the core this year?
Thank you for your wonderful comments on Full Moon NY Eve.
Appreciate , coming from you!

Hi Nancy. Glad you're here.
I suddenly had "Don't give me carrots, when I want Ice Cream!" jump into my head.
Of course, I blame you 50%.

Hi Nancy! Thanks for the kind comment. Unfortunately my hair stylist is a well-kept secret 😉
Hey Nancy! Happy FAWMing!
Hello another Serge fan!
our bar and bat mitsvah year! 😀
Love you Nancy ❤️
Good to see you here again. 😀
Hey Nancy! Great to see you 'round here again. 😀
I suspect your bio is a reference I do not get, but it sounds like the first line of a limerick.
Hola! I'm new to this Wisconsin business.
Hello Nancy! Ready for another rollicking musical adventure?
Happy FAWM! 😀
