I can't believe this is my eighth FAWM!

Since last year, I released my debut album, which you can listen and download(free) at the Bandcamp link below, so it would be cool to get some songs written for the follow up.

Myself and my partner bought our first house this year, so I now have a dedicated room for recording. This means that I no longer have to annoy her by leaving recording detritus strewn across the front room! Woop!

The always fascinating equipment and programs list:

AXL acoustic guitar
Lindo Rosetta
Danelectro Wild Thing
Boss CE-1 Chorus Pedal
Red Witch Violetta Delay Pedal
Electro Harmonix Mel 9
Dunlop Cry Baby Wah
TC Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb Pedal
Boss RC-300 Loop Station
Vox AC4C1
Mahalo Ukulele
Akai LPK25
Akai LPD8
Violin(even though I can't play it)
Hydrogen Drum Sequencer
Various bits of percussion
My human voice

    thank you...plaintive is a great word and it perfectly describes how I was feeling

  • @splittybooms  1 week

    i have never had the word "jauntiness" used on my stuff before, and I do believe i like it very much.
    i'm glad the melody works out, seems I did an ok job there based on comments like yours.
    thank you!

    Thank you for your comment on "Like The Night's Claws On The Face Of Creation"! I actually really enjoyed trying something totally different this time, so who knows, maybe I'll make something synth-based again πŸ˜€

    Oh heeeell yeah!

  • @balancelost  2 weeks

    There is still plenty of time to complete your goals, especially since you're ahead of the game now (do I detect a FAWM-holiday Friday?). For our collab we could go down the synthwave route? It is a favourite of mine.
