    What Nadia said. πŸ˜€

  • @musicsongwriter Apr 13

    Thank you so much for your warm comment on my collaboration with Alex on That's not what I meant.

  • @acousticmaddie  Mar 18

    Thanks for the Nice words about Black fallen Angel! I just feel like I need to try the other (With a MalΓ© storyteller of it) before I drop it . Its something about the song that I feel could improve maybe its not the voice, maybe its tempo or ... Dunno jet but gotta try the idea!

  • @acousticmaddie  Mar 10

    Thanks TC for the Nice comments on the collab!

  • @metalfoot  Mar 6

    Thanks for many, many kind words and encouragement and going beyond the call of duty with the FAWMcast and the Slack stuff and...

    Dude, you're amazing. Thanks for being you.

  • @sueawesome Mar 4

    thank you so so much for the feature on the fawmcast - that's such an honor.. How do I get so lucky? Oh right..musicians. : )

    I found out what happened to hoops the other day and I had no words. I still don't really. Other than I find it so beautiful that so many of you filled his soundboard this year. You defied space and time and distance and separation... you all still made music happen in his name. I hope it all gets sucked into the beautiful vortex he now resides. I hope you are comforted knowing that it all comes back to you ✨

  • @williamhaight Mar 3

    Sorry I haven't had a chance to connect this year. We had a family tragedy that took up a large chunk of the month and I then focused on getting my 14 in. I will check your stuff out as soon as I can. Playing at orr street gallery for first friday (friday) (redundant?) from 6-9:00.

  • @sw1n3flu  Mar 2

    I think we're planning on putting out all six Good Guy SΓ΄jΓ bΓ© (aka GGS) EPs onto Bandcamp

  • @bjunker Mar 2

    Thanks for the comments on Rising and Falling!

  • @standup  Mar 2

    The only time I came close to seeing them live they were supposed to open for Lucinda Williams in Baltimore, but illness or crisis made them cancel. Maybe 15 years ago. Lucinda was cool, but it would have been cooler if they had made the gig.

  • @standup  Mar 2

    Yep, "Chains" rang some bells associated with the Bottle Rockets records I have. No question about that. Hope that's a positive association for you!

  • @ballyhoot  Mar 1

    OH, and you also commented on my song, "Don't Go!" So sending you three...that's THREE..."thank you's" simultaneously!! πŸ˜€

  • @ballyhoot  Mar 1

    I wanted to thank you not only for your kind words about my song, "No Choice," but also for including it in one of the FAWMcasts. That was pretty cool. Probably the closest I'll ever get to being on the radio! LOL! Congratulations on reach 27, also! I'm hoping to reach at least 10 this year.

  • @ampersandman  Feb 28

    Thanks a lot for including my song in your FAWMcast and thanks for doing this.

  • @froley Feb 28

    Thanks for the comment on my track πŸ˜€ Congratulations on your win!

  • @bitshred  Feb 28

    Thanks for listening to my song "Reborn". I appreciate ya!

  • @majordanby  Feb 27

    Thanks for your kind words, I'm doing fine just a virus sponge, currently not suitable for general population. Really struggling with hospital internet connection, but will hopefully get to listen to some songs tonight and home tomorrow.

  • @barbara  Feb 27

    Hi! Thanks for the nice surprise in the FAWMcast! I had missed the live cast, and the mention of my collab with Amanda didn't actually climb it's way up in my feed since it was an edit, so it took getting a few unexpected comments to make me suspect something was up, lol. Great show, once again, with another much appreciated exposure to songs I would have missed. Your choices really bring across the diversity gathered here.
    If you want another one to check out by our mutual friend for possible inclusion, this is my absolute favorite of hers: http://fawm.org/songs/67517/

  • @ihelen  Feb 27

    Thanks for commenting on my math song! Yes, I've wanted to use that 50s rock backing track on a song, and when push came to shove in the skirmish - it fit as the perfect choice for the US customary units. πŸ˜€

  • @jamesstaubes  Feb 27

    I just saw that you played my song on the FAWMcast! Thank you very much! Wow. πŸ˜€

  • @matthew62  Feb 27

    Thanks for your comments on money won't buy you love.

  • @hmorg Feb 26

    Thanks for the comment on "The Killing Machines"! The lyrics are pretty much only there to paint a picture (and give the vocals a reason to be there) and I suppose they work rather well to that purpose.

  • @radicalmguy  Feb 26

    Thanks for the comment! Interesting that you like the first stanza so much because I wrote half and aerlyn wrote half

  • @engebretsen  Feb 26

    Thx for comments on two of my songs. Appreciated what you write about them. πŸ˜€

  • @dukemeyer Feb 26

    Thank you very much for your touching comments... Hey - so many songs you have made yet! Congratulations! I hope I'll find time to listen in early march... (My own stuff is growing so slowly, I have to hurry up a little to finish a next one...)

  • @sw1n3flu  Feb 25

    http://fawm.org/songs/74202/ One more daft song if you're game... I'm on it, but not "collaborator"

  • @sw1n3flu  Feb 25

    24? Dude you're a machine. Keep going!

  • @bjunker Feb 25

    Thanks for the kind words on "Rising and Falling"!

  • @cblack  Feb 25

    Thanks for the feedback. πŸ˜€ And yep, that's definitely one I'll be revisiting at some point. Might need a bit of tweaking, and I'm considering adding another layer to it (keys perhaps to go with the drums and synths?), but it's definitely got a lot of potential. πŸ˜€

  • @scubed  Feb 25

    Thank you so much for your kind words on my skirmish song! πŸ˜€

  • @hamiltonpoolhall  Feb 25

    Ah, thanks for your kind comments on my skirmish song today!

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 24

    Just wanted to pop by and say thank you so much for your very intelligent comments...
    You make me feel so great!
    big Fawm hug to you...xxc

  • @corinnecurcio  Feb 24

    LMAO!!!!!!!!!!! "udder mess" on "Turning Around!

  • @sheilerk  Feb 24

    Thank you for giving my alternative take on You Never Listen a look see! Not seeing eye to eye and the alt-facts thing was definitely on purpose.
    That sort of thing drives me a little bit crazy πŸ˜‰

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 24

    Thanks for your comments on "Almost Home". Sometimes basic is best. πŸ˜‰

  • @braai Feb 24

    Hey man! Thanks so much for your comment on 'Gentle'. You know, it's funny, I really didn't like it as I was making it but now that I have listened to it a couple of times it is starting to grow on me.

  • @pachufe Feb 24

    Hii t.c thank you for your feedback!!! i sent you the email glad you liked it!

  • @abudabard12514  Feb 24

    Thank you so much for enjoying Charlie and my collab!! That's so cool you wanna put it on the FAWMcast! Thanks so much for that. How does one go about hearing such a thing when its on???

  • @spinhead  Feb 24

    I like your comment about @scottlake's version of "Water Over Stone" slowly revealing the lyrics. I'd completely missed that he didn't post them. I feel good about them words.

  • @ballyhoot  Feb 24

    Sorry for double post

  • @ballyhoot  Feb 24

    Thanks for your comments on my song, No Choice. You called it a rock but what I read was "this song rocks".... lol. No seriously, I totally understand what you mean and appreciate the kind words.

  • @ballyhoot  Feb 24

    Thanks for your comments on my song, No Choice. You called it a rock but what I read was "this song rocks".... lol. No seriously, I totally understand what you mean and appreciate the kind words.

  • @emplate Feb 24

    Thanks for your comment! πŸ˜€ I actually just posted the lyrics. It's in Finnish, though. I'll try to come up with a translation, although I used a lot of words which I'm not sure even have equivalent in English.

  • @wacha Feb 22

    Thank you for your kind words and encouragement on "Burn the Witches". It was the protest song I was most leery of but I have gotten a very positive response to it which is reassuring.

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 21

    Thanks for your encouraging comments and support on my various superskirmish ramblings this past weekend. It was great fun playing with you and the other folks for all those hours. Have a great week.

  • @spunky4455 Feb 20

    Thanks for the compliments on my skirmish song. Was the first one I did this year and I might start treating all my songwriting projects like this. Gets a lot of judgment out of the way.

  • @barbara  Feb 20

    i'm not really all that kind, TC; had you been here, i think you'd have seen my eyes bug out at the harmonies. really great!

  • @jessicagraae  Feb 20

    Hi TC. Thanks for listening to my song, and thanks for your kind comments!

  • @visiblydistorted Feb 19

    I didn't even think of "Over The Edge" having a (or multiple) double meanings. But you're so right. Ahahaha. And it makes me snicker with the pleasure of an inside joke.

  • @avidfanman Feb 19

    Hey TC, glad you liked "Drive-Thru!", thanks for the review comments, judging SpinTunes gotta be a lot of work! 😎

  • @gflatminor  Feb 19

    Hey,@tcelliott , thanks for listening to Camel Ride and for the kind words. You're right, I have a tough time belting the words out when I haven't quite memorized them. It makes for some stumbling phrases.

  • @jessica14  Feb 19

    Thanks for the nice fawmcast today! I really enjoyed listening πŸ˜€

  • @clioem  Feb 18

    That's an excellent idea actually. Thank you for your kind words.

  • @juravial  Feb 18

    Thanks for the comment TC!

  • @frozenlonesome Feb 18

    Thanks for listening and commenting on He's Wounded It. i'm glad you liked the overall track. There is a balance I try to achieve with obscuring the vocal bits but keeping them audible. In general while I mix for all kinds of speakers, the details come out better with quality headphones. Really appreciated your feedback.

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 17

    Thanks for listening and commenting on "Truth". I'll fix the ending. It's there, just got cut off. By the time I heard it I was too far along to go back and risk a power outage. Maybe tomorrow.

  • @gvgeis Feb 17

    Thanks muchly for your comments on Dammit! Isle; I'm obliged! (We've rectified the non-downloadable issue.) I'm very glad you enjoyed the song so much. Stephen pitched an excellent setup!

  • @mal Feb 17

    I miss you, too. Got our guitar out last night. πŸ˜€

    Love you, bro.

  • @clioem  Feb 16

    Thanks so much TC!
    I haven't been on here much because work was more intense even than last year (if possible?) going to do my best to get a couple more tracks up before Feb comes to a close!

  • @julesbf  Feb 16

    Congrats on the win already and thanks for the comments on 2 of mine. It is a difficult subject to depict and I had not picked up on the sudden ending to bass lift. It certainly is not meant to be symbolic and fades much more in my pre render version.

  • @spunky4455 Feb 15

    Thanks a lot for checking out my song, and for all of your fine compliments. i was looking to do something plain and simple, so I'm happy you liked it.

  • @woody Feb 15

    Nice! I just get started on my 15-day Pink Fawm and you've already got 14 songs? Intros and Outros? Oh I see, you need more songs. Fawmcasts! Those count. And little pigs with wings count for two songs, if you can find them.

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 2017

    Hi, TC. Geoff and I have made Dammit! Isle downloadable, so feel free to do with it what you see fit.

  • @majordanby  Feb 2017

    Thanks for adding one of our tracks to the recommended forum topic! πŸ˜€

  • @jodv  Feb 2017

    LOL @ you "totally not endorsing stalking" πŸ˜‰

  • @deadhead  Feb 2017

    So uh.. I just realized that I hadn't commented on any of your songs yet, despite having listened to almost all of them (and enjoyed them too!). So... hope you don't mind the spam 😝

    Also, thanks for listening to my tracks, and I'm glad you enjoyed them! As for the solo acoustic style you want more of, I'm planning on doing a #3in10 of solo acoustic guitar soon, so stay tuned 😁

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 2017

    Thank you for your encouragement.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2017

    I would like to thank you so much for dropping by and for your lovely comment!

  • @charliecheney  Feb 2017

    Damn TC, I had to go back and listen to Selenium again. Man. I wish I still wrote and recorded with that sort of fearless abandon and drive sometimes. It's funny how you slowly change and evolve over the years isn't it?

  • @majordanby  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your comments. We were trying for the stones sound, leaving lots of space on the guitar. Still working on a sound.

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your comment on "Sweat and Blood". I like that chorus too. When I have more than an hour, I might fix it up a bit.

  • @yam655  Feb 2017

    You can read all about hippo blood sweat online. Interesting stuff. Now, I don't imagine it would be effective to farm hippos for their blood sweat -- that was just something for the song. πŸ˜‰

  • @mungus  Feb 2017

    Hey! Thanks for commenting on my track 'where you dedicated it all,' I appreciated your note on my vocals - I try to keep my lyrics and their delivery honest and empathetic to the subject matter - and I can be quite a resigned person haha. Looking forward to listening through your songs soon, you've made awesome headway, pushes the rest of us to push just as hard! Thank you

  • @famouspatrick  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the nice comment on my "Reflections" skirmish song. That sad country stuff is squarely in my comfort zone.

  • @engebretsen  Feb 2017

    Thx for comments on reflections - skirmish. As I said I had an awesome hour this time. DonΒ΄t think I can do that again. But fun it was.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2017

    Ok, so they know both words. But I was trying to use a word which lent itself to the skirmish.

  • @yam655  Feb 2017

    Yeah, I was trying something different for the mysterious song. Not my MIDI software. I mean, there are drums. My software doesn't have any notion of drums outside of a simple metronome.

  • @unpronounceable Feb 2017

    <3 You get me. You really get me, TC.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 2017
