Influences: Bluegrass, acoustic blues, acoustic rock, country rock, old timey. I like a lot of the new Americana stuff. Haggard, Avett Bros, Jason Isbell, Beatles, etc.
I play acoustic music. I'm in a bluegrass/Americana band. My main instrument is mandolin, but I seem to mostly write with a ukulele.
Thanks for your comment! No electronics used. Just static from my computer and reverb by putting two copies of the same recording in different ears with a slight delay. You have some work ahead, I can see! Ten songs left... Could be done, though! 😀
Hi, thank you for the compliment on "Reections On a Rainy Day", hey, now that you mention it I guess I do sound a little bit like Cat Stevens, thanks!
Thank you! 👍
Thanks for listening to a couple of my songs and leaving such nice comments! I really appreciate it! 😀
Thanks for your comment and for listening to Loser Lover. It was a fun skirmish wasn't it? I had to push myself really hard to get in the bass and harmonies too.
You did nothing wrong really 😀 Just that the link you put in the skirmish went straight to Soundcloud, rather than to your FAWM page 😀
It is sorted now 😀
Great song by the way 😀
Thanks for the comment about my "Vile" song. The instrumentation came from LMMS, which is a free cross-platform music application. http://lmms.io/
It's not quite a DAW, but like a modern Tracker, with a lot of great virtual instruments available. I use it for a lot of my instrumentation.
I took your meaning as you intended. I was being facetious in my reply. Thanks againf for listening. Have a great rest of FAWM.
Hi thanks for you +be comments on Top Secret. I'd love to hear a bluegrass version 😀
I love the mandolin but have chubby fingers so need lots of fretboard. I love playing 12 string though. 😀 neil
Experimenting is fun because you don't need to have any clue how it will turn out when you start. 😀 "This one seemed a bit short." Work on a new one. "This one seems a bit long." Work on a new one, "This one is just as long as that short one, but _this_ one seems a bit long!"
Still, though, every experiment leads to new learning, and much of that new learning can be fed back in to your more structured writes.
Almost all of my music is a result of experimentation. Sometimes it is near-structured, though, as practice has allowed me to have a clear picture of what I want and the skills to mostly make it happen.
You should try a song skirmish sometime. A bunch of people write songs with a common title/theme, but are limited to just an hour to write/record. It's a good way to practice the balance of structure versus experiment along with planning versus improvising. 😀
Thanks for commenting on my Addiction song. Yes, it was my first time playing the uke... Although I have to admit that, in the past, I've dabbled in stringed instruments, and I certainly did a few takes before recording it. 😀
Hi there! We've been paired for a random collab! My email address is on my profile if you'd like to drop me a line 😀
You're welcome 😀 Don't worry about multiple posts, has happened to me beofre 😀 Happy FAWMing!
I will!!! I'll write another verse to it sometime...
What Batavia are you from?
Thanks for commenting on my one chord song. I'd say inversions are fine, so you should have no problem at all. 😉 I read in your bio that you play mandolin and ukulele. Well I commented about the guitar in your Dreams song... It sounded like a guitar to me, but now I'm not so sure. Yes, I still think it is, but hmm... Could it really be a ukulele? Because my ukulele doesn't sound like that. 😀
Thanks so much for your visit and comment on grandma' cellar skirmish song..
.hey!! Now I wanna use your line" old coal bin and occasional snake skin...omg perfect!! May I?
Thanks for listening to one of my songs.
Happy fawming 😀
Thanks for commenting on "here we go" looking forward to listening 🙏
