My Blood Is A Branch Of Cats.
2/18 Dealing with some pain in fingers and wrist of my right hand. going to give it rest (as best I can) for a few days to see if it eases up, probably not going to get to 14 this year. I'll try to keep up with songs and comments the best I can.
For FAWM this year I got a broken computer (apparently FAWMa Clause is kind of a dick)
Feb 2 and going shopping for a new laptop tonight. sorry if I have been unresponsive, the computer has been limping along for a few weeks.
Now living in, West Allis (Milwaukee), WI
(also know as Stallis & West Allica)
Ready, not ready
Ready to get writing
Not ready with my recording set up.
The past year was interesting.
New house, a studio in the basement eventually, hopefully.
Going to try writing on piano this year, we'll see what happens.
1/27/18 My computer decided to take a dive, I was able to get it going again but everything that was on it is gone. So starting from scratch in February.
Here is my original blurb from 4 years ago
Been Playing guitar for like a hundred years (I'm old). Just heard about this a couple of days before it started last year, thought I'd give it a go. I'm a procrastinator by trade, so this will be a challenge for me.
Hi, pipewrench67. Thanks for checking in. It's been a draining month (draining year, really), and I just haven't had the energy to get anything done (and I'm having audio interface problems). I may get a thing or two up before the month's over, but either way I hope to get to some listening at some point.
Hei Pipewrench!! Good afternoon to you too 😀) its a busy month for me, but I see you are doing great stuff already!! good to read and hear from you again!
Thank for your comment on my Midnight On the Water. For my first song, I thought I would use an old fiddle tune. I always picture dancing by the water when I hear the tune.
that would be funny if it was sarcasm, but that would have only been so if left on music that sounded like nails on a chalkboard
i loved it, pipe
You wouldn't believe the weird stuff I found behind that drywall...
Thanks for your kind words. Love your influences, btw...😊
Ready, steady ...
Good to see you back! Wishing you a great FAWM!
Howdy! Yeah, I've been tidying up the place, thanks for noticing 😀 I look forward to hearing what you conjure up this year. Happy Fawming!
Hi, pipewrench67. Happy FAWMing.
It's kid friendly for sure. My 6-year-old niece will likely be in attendance. It's a beautiful big house on the East Side, and my awesome piano-badass friend Andrea will be joining me. Let me know the best way to get the info to you (email/FB/etc).
Ah, thank you for the invitation! Alas, my schedule is extremely tightly packed. I'll be in Milwaukee proper for about 18 hours 😀 but still interested in a possible collab! Let's stay in touch 😀 Also, if you're interested in attending a house concert on Saturday the 3rd, let me know!
Hey there, let's get some things going in 2018.
Hello again! Looking forward to hearing your wonderful music. 😀
That's great - Thanks for that link. I have a lot to learn with Reaper. I never used 90% of the stuff on nTrack (after 15 years of using it) - Just basic recording, FX and edits.
