    Hi again! Thanks for your kind words on "Back For More"! Appreciate your time and thoughts smile

  • @writeandwrong  Mar 23

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on "My Rebirth". Definitely something cosmic going on there! smile

  • @msculli1 Mar 17

    Hi, a rough vocal demo for what's going on in here?


  • @benjo Mar 15


    I like all your work some great music there

  • @msculli1 Mar 13

    Hi, thanks for the comment on what's going on in here? I am still working on the vocals I sussed out where I was going wrong so they should be up soon. Yeah the drums and bass are not effected yet. I sort of phoned them in cos I thought everything stopped on the 1st. I should have them sounding better after vocal mix.
    25 songs is an amazing amount. I love the guitar sounds especially on the final track. Are you playing straight to daw or taking it through effects onto a digital recorder?
    Cheers Mark.

  • @msculli1 Mar 10

    Thanks for the comment on Don't Let Go. It is probably the sadest lyric I've written so I am having trouble finishing it. I am sending this during work time so I will check out your stuff tonight on the ipad. Cheers, Mark

  • @downburst  Mar 4

    Thanks for the good comment on my song. I really appreciated all the thoughtful discussion that came from my post.

  • @johncrossman  Mar 3

    Hey, good fawmcast, my man, I heard the last one, which was my first unfortunately. I'll have to check out the archives. And a good fawm you had, but the looks (and listens) of it. There's a lot of variety up there - I'll have to come back and sample more.

    I did re-demo one song today if you're interested, my last: *43141 Sped up, cleaned up, straightened up. Sounds a little more poppy than punky now. I might want to play it with binky and nancy, so I'm open to feedback if you have a chance.

    Also, I should mention I did a shout out to CoMo among other places in my dragondreamsmonsterbluesthingy vocal but it was in my second verse that didn't make it in. Such is life, that was a monster undertaking. Take care, see you around! smile

  • @airbagtester  Mar 2

    Thanks to you and Juha for doing the FAWMtalk this year; your hard work and early morning dialogue really made FAWM even more special this year for me. And I've never seen that many people in the chat room all listening and talking about the same music before... it was really special.

  • @wen Mar 2

    Thanks for the kind words. Also, it was great fun listening to the post-FAWM stream!

  • @ferry0123 Mar 2

    Thanks TC for your kind words. Good to hear from you. Much appreciated.

  • @theresaj  Mar 1

    Thank you for your kind comments. I have a lot to learn with recording and mixing so thanks for the feedback on turning up the vocals. Honestly, I don't like my voice too much so that's probably why I keep it low wink

  • @wolfkier  Mar 1

    Thank you.

  • @mattpierce  Mar 1

    Wow, good win TC!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Mar 1

    Thanks for your lovely comments on "Wine", it was easy to write being only a 2 chorder, and me being such an appreciator of the substance itself.
    Have also enjoyed your contribution to FAWMtalk.

  • @timfatchen  Mar 1

    Curtain #3 *43157 it's one of three, but it was the lushest (not necessarily the best). Idea was to create a "last encore" piano piece. As when, you've already played two encores, the audience itself would like to stop and go home but feels it should ask for a little bit more, so you throw this sort of finish out and we can all go home then.

    I haven't listened to enough of my watchlist, incl you I see...I'll rectify that in the enxt couple of days before I have to head north (and in the last part of March too). I think I'm done encouraging non-watchlisters and newcomers this FAWM...

  • @ericdistad  Feb 28

    Awesome! Thanks TC! I turned out great!

  • @zecoop  Feb 27

    Well, thanks for both listening and for playing Martha on FAWMtalk! We're almost to the month of listening and I'll be doing a lot of that right here! Congrats on the win... smile

  • @candle  Feb 26

    Thanks for your comment on Energy Part II. I'm glad you enjoyed my bio as well smile

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 24

    I have put music to and recorded a demo for @sherrycanary's song Wetlands - *38061

  • @flutterby42  Feb 24

    Thanks for your comment on Good Girl. Holy Modal Rounders, eh? I'd never heard of them, so had to go and listen to their stuff. Interesting stuff. I love how FAWM is broadening my musical horizons.

    On another note, I would love to hear your version of Pulling Teeth if you had a recording of it.

  • @airbagtester  Feb 23

    Thanks for commenting on my skirmish song smile Yeah, it was kind of a tough title and to be honest I'm still not sure what I meant by "you love just like a president..." I definitely agree with you re: power and our perception of it.

  • @postcardhelicopters  Feb 23

    "Man, what the f... hell?" is pretty much the response I had while working on the song.

    And I *have* been up all night, skirmishing. How could you tell? smile

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 2014

    Thank you for the (many) listens and comments. It is always good to hear from you.

  • @chariotbaldwin  Feb 2014

    I bet you can smell the finish line TC! Just added you to my watchlist

    Just dropping in to say thanks for listening to It's on You http://fawm.org/songs/34209/ a collab with Val Cox.

  • @mosno  Feb 2014

    Thank you so much for your comment on "This Emotional State", I agree, I LOVE the "Realm #3" track on its own and was very honored when @martinneuhold allowed me to put vocals on it!
    So glad you enjoyed it! smile

  • @avidfanman  Feb 2014

    Thanks for your kind words on my interpretation of "Wetlands", interesting that we both took it as a locale for criminal activity rather than focussing on the nature smile

  • @barbara  Feb 2014

    re: the courthouse scenario... i kind of like that being left ambiguous, especially because I didn't know what I was talking about at the time big_smile i did a little post-lyric google fact checking on my premise regarding the purpose of marriage blood tests, and it blew a large hole in the side of my story, but hopefully it still works well enough. i do like the irony that the reason for doing one was already long ago by-passed, given her due date. or i don't know, maybe the blood test is to check the DNA of her baby's father to see if he gets out of doing time, and then they CAN get married. hey, i just work here. don't ask me... (thanks for listening!)

  • @ari Feb 2014

    Thank you for your comment on my song! big_smile

  • @raygungirls  Feb 2014

    Just dropping in to let you know that my song *35002 now has lyrics and vocals. Hope you enjoy!

  • @lieke Feb 2014

    Thank you for your kind words on my song. I'll listen to yours soon!

  • @rickatfulcrum Feb 2014

    Hey.. India Corpse seems to be waiting on me, which means I need to tell you how to get your ten seconds into my lap.. e-mail me at the following address when you're able:

    at DOT fulcrum AT gmail DOT com

    (the "at" is part of the address—that confuses some people)

  • @wistah  Feb 2014

    thanks for the listen and the comment!

  • @dgsm Feb 2014

    Thanks for the comment on your song! I love your profile picture! For different reasons then you may think! It's has a weird factor. Again, thanks for your feedback.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2014

    Hi TC! I would like to thank you very much for your beautiful comments!

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 2014

    I've noticed you in previous years, but I think this is the first time I've really noticed the picture for your profile. And it's a doozy.

  • @aflinner Feb 2014

    re:Illusion, thanks for the comments. Glad you liked it.

  • @devinhill Feb 2014

    Oh okay. Yes, I do give you permission to play it on the FAWMtalk show. In fact, I'd be very honored if you did that. Thank you for taking interest in my song!

  • @devinhill Feb 2014

    Thanks for your comment on my song Sectionalism! The line that I took out of it was something like "Say no to social sectionalism/Don't limit yourself to such strict regulations" and it repeated a couple times, so I'm kind of glad I had to take it out because after I got the new version recorded, these lines didn't feel like they needed to be in it. The chord progression that played under it was a simple three-chord progression, so I didn't lose anything too fancy. And what do you mean by play it? Would it be my recording being played or you covering my song? Thank you for the kind words!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2014

    Thanks for the lovely feedback!
    Enjoying the adventure of listening through your tunes too- especially that grungy guitar driven Fear Engine song.

  • @francesriley  Feb 2014

    It would be awesome if we could do some kind of collaboration! I'm in if you are!

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2014

    Ismenios has awoken - and he sounds pissed. big_smile

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2014

    You have mail, TC. wink

  • @brownium  Feb 2014

    Thanks for the listen on "Uke 1". I do, indeed, have a very nice uke. My wife and kids went to Hawaii, and all I got was this stupid ukulele. Except that it's a beautiful ukulele. I hadn't played it much for several months, but it sure was fun pulling it back out!

  • @ritawitter  Feb 2014

    Good Work TC. Keep that train a rollin!

  • @petemurphy  Feb 2014

    Hey TC. Just went to listen to your 'too tired...' song and it ain't working. It doesn't load the song up and the 'play' button doesn't work. Just thought I'd let you know.

  • @colourcodedchaos Feb 2014

    Thanks for asking after me. I appreciate it. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you make this year. =]

  • @oldlostjohn  Feb 2014
