    Thanks @toms ! I hadn’t seen that review - I feel bad for her, as she’s totally right. I ought to either take the kindle edition down or get it sorted really...

  • @metalfoot  Mar 23

    "whatever" πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the listen to Sloppy!

  • @mkd  Mar 23

    Hi @toms! Thanks for your lovely comment on Peekaboo! I feel very blessed to have my two kids πŸ˜€

    My book is called The Theory Handbook (Harp) and is available in the UK, for Β£15. I do have it on Amazon as a kindle version, but it’s terribly laid out (it needs sorting)... if you wish to buy a copy and you’re happy to pay the postage costs I’d be happy to send you a hard copy... it used UK terminology, but references American terms throughout (they’re so useful for understanding time signatures). I wrote the book with the aim of making it aimed towards adults whilst giving useful and practical explanations. It is also aimed at someone new to the harp, so every new element is applied in practice on the harp. (Just to clarify, I’m on about the stringed variety!)

  • @metalfoot  Mar 22

    Yeah, so I, uh, thought I wasn't really going to do much in FAWM, then FAWM happens, and 73 songs later, the dust settled...

  • @guatecoop  Mar 15

    Interested? Absolutely interested. I'm glad that you are moving ahead with some songs! I'd love to be involved.
    Keep me posted...

  • @guatecoop  Mar 14

    So, now that you've used the you still like your Ampex 600? I'm wondering what I should do with mine. I still have not modded it for studio use and am just wondering if I should part with it. Someone is building me a tube preamp from scratch (probably an Altec 1567 type) and I have 5 Akai M8 preamps for modification, too....I have so much stuff now that I don't really know which direction to go at this point. Thoughts? I also have been using a Warm Audio WA412 that was given to me by a band for payment that I really love, but it is certainly different than the tube stuff. Let me know what you think.

  • @doglatin  Mar 3

    Thanks for all the comments, Tom. And hell yes, a TomS cover of a Dog Latin song would be beyond awesome.

  • @zecoop  Mar 1

    p.s. - this is how it turned out. Still needs to be re-mixed. πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 23

    Chimy awesomeness... πŸ˜€

  • @fonte  Feb 22

    Thanks for your kind comment on 'bones' - I didn't think about it too much which is probably the key!

  • @guatecoop  Feb 22

    So, I think that @zecoop mentioned it, but our plan is taking shape....a different concept than before and I think that you will like it.....coming your way soon! Probably tomorrow night or Friday. We are both playing the same instruments, but panned to either side. You get the center!

  • @danvaillancourt  Feb 20

    Good guess on the EV. I DO own "gold" 664 and a 635a but the mic I have been using quite a bit for backing vox and some guitar amp mic'ing too is an old EV727 ceramic microphone... just a fun old public address type microphone that has a fun vibe.

  • @andygetch  Feb 18

    Hey, the salt shaker was a superstition reference to where Kurt Russell emptied al of the salt shakers in a bar to reverse his luck in the movie 'Used Cars'.

  • @max  Feb 17

    OK Mr. Spademan. When I'm listening to the songs you're posting here during FAWM it's like I'm thrown back to the time I was 14, 15 years old. The time when I grew up with The Damned, Buzzcocks, The Only Ones etc etc. You must be exactly the same age (I'm from 1963) cause you are channeling all the good feeling from that time through your songs. Because of the fact I'm not a native English speaker I find it hard sometimes to give the comment I want to give on the songs I hear. Long story short: Glad I'm back here and hearing all your fabulous stuff AND more on bandcamp. Much respect for the music you're making Sir!

  • @zecoop  Feb 17

    The band is getting back together... More details soon. Be ready. πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 15

    Rock and roll completed... now with Karl's vocals and lead from a friend.

  • @totallynotaspambot Feb 14

    Bup! Be thanked of your comments! But why would anyone want to be a human? 😁

  • @andygetch  Feb 11

    Knew of some pretty quick Pinto's and Mavericks back in the day, no shame there. Here are the five, all long gone
    (1) Ragged out 69 hatchback in high school
    (2) II 77 4-cyl hatchback through most of college
    (3) 95 conv for the wife that the daughter ended up with
    (4) Rustbucket 69 convertible project car
    (5) 90 4-cyl as daily driver while making project car drivable

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 11

    The vocals? Just a condenser mic, EQ and compression...

  • @guatecoop  Feb 11

    no no no....I have 5 of my own and 3 collabs that were posted much later and I wanted to give them the attention for their vocal performance. I do have 3 collabs out there and am working on a "soul" song now....hmmm...let's see how that turns out. You are certainly doing well yourself. We need to think about a collab, too. I like what we've done in the past.

  • @rainchaser  Feb 11

    Not sure how MC4 got their name, it seemed like they also got the name from The Fantastic Four ( The style of their logo reminded me of it). But I'm going to put my money on that they took the name from both.

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 10

    Catching up on listening at the moment. I will be back...

  • @rainchaser  Feb 10

    Jay Frank has a book called Futurehit. DNA that has a chapter that goes over how zero plays matter in the music industry. You can find the book on amazon:

  • @andygetch  Feb 10

    Hey Tom, thanks for the comment on 'I'm Burning Fuel'. Squeezing something out of the cigar box guitar I bought. I actually had 5 'stangs, although two were 4-bangers, so definite conflicts there LOL.

  • @zecoop  Feb 3

    Means a ton coming from you, King of the Crunch. πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 3

    Update... It's my Beta 57 not the SM57, which is on my snare

  • @zecoop  Feb 3

    Mic'd the amps with the old standard... SM57 straight at the middle of the speaker. The Silvertone is a 1x10 and the Traynor is a 1x12. I have not explored the differences in tone that things like off-axis, etc make (yet).

  • @zecoop  Feb 3

    Thanks for checking out my surf tune! Much appreciated! Loving that Hammond... even though I suck at organ, lol. πŸ˜€

  • @totallynotaspambot Feb 2

    Be greeted and thanks. It's great we still have humans in FAWM. February Artificial Intelligence Month would be terrifying. Yikes! Beep-bup-bup-beep

  • @axl  Feb 2

    It’s an Uillean pipe. What I like about the picture is that it looks like I actually know how to play that thing. 😎

  • @resonut123 Feb 1

    Hey, thanks for those chord diagrams- now I know how to play guitar!

  • @alboe Jan 31

    Tomorrow's the big day, I hope you'll have a great FAWM.

  • @guatecoop  Jan 30

    I know. I normally hear the name and move on without a look. This one is cool. Def a sound that I didn't have.

  • @klaus  Jan 29

    Hi Tom. Yes, seriously. Very seriously. No fooling around. Just blood, sweat and tears. 😞

  • @guatecoop  Jan 29

    Speaking of names like Behringer (patchbay), I just got a free amp! It is a Crate...I was skeptical, but it is a VC30, made in the US, and sounds quite Vox-y. Some guy was giving it away. EL84 based amp with 2 channels.

  • @tamsnumber4 Jan 28

    Hi Tom!

  • @cairobraga Jan 27

    2018? really, queen?

  • @metalfoot  Jan 27

    I don't know. LOL

  • @metalfoot  Jan 26

    HPA can be our band name if we get it together.

  • @donna  Jan 22

    You mean you've heard of him as well??? πŸ˜‰

  • @guatecoop  Jan 2018

    Hey there! I'm super excited to hear what you have in store this year! Maybe another collab, too. Loads of writing material over the last year...sadly.
