    Les Paul copy into a Face Bender VST run through an amp convolution host. Simple as to get that sound πŸ˜€

  • @f3bb0y Mar 5

    Thank you, Susan, for the kind remarks. Since you are a Scot, I will direct you to a young Scottish woman named Roseanne Reid (who I met in 2015 at Steve Earle's Camp Copperhead.) She has just released her first EP and she's a lovely person besides! Daughter of one of The Proclaimers! (500 Miles)

  • @cblack  Mar 5

    Thanks for the comment, and glad you liked it! πŸ˜€

  • @jonmeta  Mar 3

    Thanks, Susan! Got both files. I like your 3-part harmonies. I'll be putting it all together this weekend and will let you know when it's up.

  • @jonmeta  Mar 2

    And thanks for the encouragement!

  • @jonmeta  Mar 2

    Yeah, Susan, go for it! I'll be mixing "Humans" on Sunday. I'm looking forward to your contribution.

  • @alphanerg Mar 2

    Thank you for the comment! Sorry about your speakers :'(

  • @jamesstaubes  Mar 1

    Thanks for your amazing comments! I'll have to double check the piano sound I used on, "In California," but I believe it's the native Steinway piano sound from Logic. It's definitely good. But I just got the Native Instruments Komplete 11 and the piano sounds in it are even better.

  • @karlsburg25  Mar 1

    Ah thanks Susan. I promise to get through your tunes. Its been so hard with the on off wifi this year. At least i finished doing the hour long upload of songs πŸ˜‰

  • @ajna1960  Mar 1

    Just to let you know that @tjeff has now recorded the vocals on "Can't Live Without Your Eyes"

  • @mungus  Mar 1

    Thank You for making Fawm such a supportive experience. I really appreciated your comments, I like 'haunting,' glad I could achieve it.

  • @adforperu  Feb 28

    Ooo small world! Thanks for the comments.. I'll be back to listen to your music in March.. I'm so behind!

  • @johnhudome  Feb 27

    Thank you so much for your comments, Susan.

  • @matthew62  Feb 27

    Susan, once again, thanks for your encouragement. I don't think I'll be able to get anything else recorded, but I plan on listening to all of your songs in the next couple of days.

  • @matthew62  Feb 27

    Susan, thanks for your comments on indulgences. You do remember one of the previous incarnations of the song. A couple years back it was rightly picked apart at one of the meetings. Then it was called abuses and allowances. When the re-write went cold, I put it on my scrap heap for later attempts. I was pleased with the outcome this time...maybe I just need some pressure.

  • @paulharrison  Feb 26

    Thanks for your kind comments on my song, Susan!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    Hi, I wrote a couple of different lyrics that I thought might fit great with your style
    And another one called "Super"'. Let me know if you have the interest or bandwidth for a possible collab on one of those or perhaps something else. I have always love working with you on and love your sound and style!

  • @gordon Feb 2017

    Thanks for listening and leaving some kind words.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2017

  • @daveed  Feb 2017

    Sorry about the glitch, but glad to see you're back online!

  • @susancantey  Feb 2017

    I'm back!!!!

  • @thetau  Feb 2017

    Sorry to hear about this trouble.

    I had a crash several months ago (hacker started a domino effect) Killed my main storage drive. I lost all my music files (1 terabyte drive). I did have a backup but many of the files (especially the Recorded tracks) from 2015 and 2016 are gone. I'm still trying to recover. I also lost used of some programs. Temporarily, Sampletank 3 was the main midi sampler I used in Reaper. I have to use SampleTank 2, for now, until I get everything repaired.

    There is "Trouble in River City," but we FAWMers alway carry on. I'll save something special... something special... just for you

  • @cindyrella  Feb 2017

    Sorry Susan! I hope things will work out.

  • @hmstreetteam  Feb 2017

    Thanks for β€œHard to Paint.” I’m excited! I can’t wait to hear it myself when I get home (6 or 7 hours from now).

  • @mrmule Feb 2017

    Thank you, I usually hear that my music would fit games and movies, but besides few exceptions I have been the only one using it. πŸ˜€

  • @cindyrella  Feb 2017

    Thanks Susan. And, sure-give it a go if you want.

  • @hmstreetteam  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the comments on β€œHard to Paint.” When I sing it, it sounds a little too much like β€œStuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again,” so if an idea comes to you for music, I’d be eager to hear. Please go to it and let us all know how it comes out.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your comment on my march song. I'll write the protests songs for us both, eh?
