Your Average Joe 15

Hello, my name is Joe, and this is my first FAWM!

I have been excited to do this for quite some time, and so far so good! I can't wait to hear everyone's songs and get inspired.

    Long live the Rapman. Thanks for your comment and sorry we're just getting back. Things have been crazyyyyy. Congratulations on finishing FAWM.

  • @jessica14  Feb 27

    Thanks for listening to my rap song. This was so much fun to do, I might change genre all together now 😀

  • @fionna  Feb 27

    Thanks for the comment!

  • @pinky  Feb 26

    Absolutely man! Have fun in Cologne!

  • @pinky  Feb 24

    Definitely! That's on my list for the "off-season." So far it's figure out how to add drums into my music, adding more changups/transitions in songs, and learn how to really use a DAW and get better at mixing.

    If you ever want to work some magic on some of my discarded loops again, just say the word! I sent a bunch to thelowestbitter that we didn't end up using, so they're all ready to go. You're the king of coming up with some killer drums!

  • @visiblydistorted Feb 21

    Thanks for listening to "Inner Critic" - I see you made it to 14 already despite the harsh influence of your own inner critic! Way to go!

  • @mrbilly23 Feb 21

    Man, you're done already! I'm still 4 short!

  • @mrbilly23 Feb 21

    I uploaded music to Nerdy Like Me

  • @cindyrella  Feb 20

    Thanks for your comment on my flag vent song!

  • @ihelen  Feb 20

    Thanks for commenting on my Takeover song! And about your Nero song - yes, the harp part was noticeably happier. Thinking about it, changing modes is such a simple, yet effective way . 😀

  • @pinky  Feb 18

    Yea, I was blown away! I love those epic songs that just build and keep you engaged. It's something I'd love to develop, but it's the transitions that always kill me. But you nailed it! Awesome job!

  • @pinky  Feb 18

    Yea man! And I think "being kind is the key" is probably a good thing to have stuck in your head. Sweet, checking out your song now!

  • @pinky  Feb 17

    I got "Failed to notice, I ought to know this, being kind is the key" stuck in my head for awhile today. Your delivery is infectious!

  • @kingwoodkowboy  Feb 16

    Howdy Average Joe. Thanks for approval of "Fifty Seven Thunderbird". My first car was a '59 Plymouth Fury. It still had tail fins though.

  • @ampersandman  Feb 14

    Once again, thanks for your kind words!

  • @pinky  Feb 13

    Dude! The song's amazing!!! Do you mind if I favorite it?

  • @shannonwinnonah Feb 13

    Thank you we were up all night making the song and it was very noisy as well! with so many anger all we can do sometime is smile.

  • @marthie Feb 13

    Thank you for your feedback on GhOst Town

  • @ampersandman  Feb 12

    IT IS OUT!
    Gosh, I'm so behind. Life kills me.

  • @joefahey  Feb 12

    Yo Joe,

    Thank you for the kind comments on "The Elusive Unicorn Blues", much appreciated!


  • @pinky  Feb 11

    Sounds good! If you go to my main page, I added the email button. Shoot me an email and I'll send you back some loops and you can see if any of them give you ideas.

  • @crimulus  Feb 11

    Wow -- you were on that comment on "Reluctant" 😀

    Thanks for the listen and response! Checking out your stuff now.

  • @pinky  Feb 10

    Absolutely up for a collab! What did you have in mind? I've got some loops I've come up with over the past few days, that I like, but not sure how to expand on. Or if you have some music, I can usually write up some lyrics pretty quick. Or something else entirely. I'm totally game!

  • @pinky  Feb 10

    Haha, sorry! I got sidetracked with some other stuff. I'll post a goofy acoustic song that I came up with but I'm not sure what genre it is. Rockabilly, maybe? Got to check out your 2 new songs! You're killing it man!!!

  • @yam655  Feb 10

    Congratulations on hitting Century Club! 😀

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 10

    Thanks very much for listening and commenting on my song, "Lay it Down." You reminded me I needed to put Beck in as an influence! His "Lost Cause" is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

  • @sayda Feb 10

    cool, thanks for the info!

  • @sayda Feb 10

    Thank you for the comment! Yes, a spotlight moment, musical thing is definitely what it sounds like 😀

  • @cindyrella  Feb 10

    Thanks for your nice comment on my Purple Tree song.

  • @yam655  Feb 10

    You know it! 😀 The only reason I'm not cranking them out faster is because I'm practicing new skills.

  • @yam655  Feb 9

    I'm not sorry about my divorce. That house was on fire a good long time before we decided to leave it.

  • @yam655  Feb 9

    Thank you for the comment on "Death Meat Coffee". 😀

  • @ladyred Feb 9


  • @metalfoot  Feb 9

    Joe, the Helga song actually built backwards out of the word pair "haughty hottie". So great snag on that one!

  • @ampersandman  Feb 9

    Thanks for asking Joe! Unfortunately I'm still waiting for guest vocals since my attempts were too poor. I'm eager to release it because it rocks.

  • @aprilm Feb 9

    Hi Joe! Nice to see you on here and not just on the Facebook page!

  • @cblack  Feb 9

    Wow, that's a lot of plugins being used on the vocal line. It would've taken me ages to figure that out on my own, so thanks heaps! I've copied your comment to my "FAWM Notes" document - will have to dig around and see what I can come up with. 😁

  • @andygetch  Feb 9

    Hi Joe, so super to see you here!

  • @cblack  Feb 9

    Thanks for the feedback, and especially the advice. I'm by no means a singer (definitely my weakest instrument, I think). I've never really played around with filters (or many plugins in general), but I'll have to look into such things at some point.

    And I'm glad you found that the song flows well. I was really worried it was *way too* basic - but that was kind of the point. Stripping all the flash away to help me understand the underlying principles.

    I'll have to check out your track "Alone" in a moment. 😀

  • @chandra83  Feb 9


  • @sarahk Feb 9

    Hi, Joe!
    The demo is up for "Sugar and Cream" if you'd like to check it out. I think @burrrse did a great job with the music!

  • @skwaer Feb 9

    yup, know all about Blocks - haven't started using it yet - sounds great, just haven't had time. have used Reaktor a ton in the past. i use a smattering of NI stuff, love Maschine for sketching out ideas. actually used to work with NI a while ago!

  • @piney  Feb 8

    Thanks so much for your comment 🙂

  • @guatecoop  Feb 7

    Well good morning to you! Thank you. And off to bed for me.

  • @rebeccajasso Feb 6

    Thanks for your kind comments on Tonight! I've been enjoying listening to your tunes.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 6

    Joe! Thanks for the kind words on -1. I am having *too* much fun with songs, alphabetical, numerical, collaborative, skirmished... you should check out the kazoo symphony on the page for my kids' music (@metalfootlings). It's beautiful and hilarious all at once.

  • @electrocelte Feb 6

    Thanks Joe... well the bells and "shimmer" in my Ranger track are definitely due to his Will-O-Wisp friend, Skree. Thanks for listening!!!

  • @chandra83  Feb 6

    Thanks for your comments on "Someone So Wrong" 😀

  • @nancihobson1  Feb 6

    Thanks for your kind comment on 'every day I'm alive'. I'd just posted it and wasn't feeling confident about it. Thank you! Now I have the inspiration to start another one!

  • @sarahk Feb 6

    Thanks so much for your comments on "Sugar and Cream!" I'm happy to say that I found a collaborator for the music already, so I may post back when there's a demo, if you don't object.

    Happy FAWMing! Great to have you around!

  • @famouspatrick  Feb 6

    Thanks for the kind comments on my "Veg Dom" song. I'm glad you enjoyed listening, cuz I enjoyed writing it.

  • @seanbrennan  Feb 3

    Hi, Joe!

    Thank you so much for listening to so many of my tracks! I hope that I'm able to make this transition idea work seamlessly!
