    You definitely should try out a partial capo!! Kyser sells one called the shortcut, I think. They instantly give you that open tuning sound and most of the chords are 1-2 fingers. Very easy to immediately have a completely different sound without having to re-tune your guitar. I never do alternate tunings, but I love that capo. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @adforperu  Mar 20

    Thank you for your great comments.. i'll be over to listen to some more of your stuff before the month is out

  • @haim  Mar 6

    Thanks for your beautiful comment dear. Means a lot...

  • @zecoop  Mar 4

    Haha, yea, those two were just a big experiment. The way it ended up (at least in my head) is that "There" sets the stage and "Back Again" has more of the melody and resolution. They are both interesting and it was fun to try. Thanks for listening! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @carleybaer  Mar 4

    Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for your super sweet comments!! Also, I didn't know (until just now when I saw your SoundCloud) whether your handle was Angel In A Powersuit or Angelina Powersuit, and I've always wondered, but now I know. (insert The More You Know graphic here) Anyway, thank you again ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @danvaillancourt  Mar 2

    Many many thanks for your beautiful, thoughtful and helpful comments throughout FAWM. I am ever grateful and wanted to let you know that I really appreciate your ears and the time that you take with your responses. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @johnstaples  Mar 1

    Hey Angelina! Thanks for listening and commenting and posting fun songs and just being an all around Angel (in a power suit!) After a brief recovery I'll be checking out more of your songs!

  • @rustyp Mar 1

    Hi!
    Thanks so much for your kind comments on my song, "Here for You."
    Last weekend I got bronchitis and some sort of throat infection and so I had been waiting all week to get a steady note out. ๐Ÿ˜€ I'm glad you liked the song. ๐Ÿ˜€ Yeah, it's a little short, but I wasn't sure where to go next and I was getting tired. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Feel free to share if you dare. I know it could be a ton better. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @haim  Feb 27

    Each person with his / her own problems I guess... Make sure you don't eat anything that has green on it though ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @haim  Feb 26

    Thanks angela.. You made my day! so thanks! And Lament for the grown up sounds good so i'll consider it haha.. And yeah about the part about being child again, trying my best you know.. Thanks for the support and encouragement. :*)

  • @websheldon  Feb 26

    Hellooooo thanks for the message on my Soundboard and your comments too! Yesss I think we both have a bit of Joni style things going on... Hope you get to post more before the month is out! I managed to do 2 last night, will see if I can repeat that tonight!

  • @cherok40  Feb 24

    Thank you for listening and your kind comment. I'll have your advice in mind if I make a new mix.

  • @alg123  Feb 24

    Hi @angelinapowersuit thank you for stopping by and listening to Single Girl and for the positive feedback!

  • @haim  Feb 21

    Howcome you went off my radar.. I'm so confused and overwhelmed this year. Promise to hear your songs soon.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 21

    Thank you so much Angela . Yeah the real andaman sea . Was thank full I managed to get some words with a little bit of sense out of it ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘

  • @splittybooms  Feb 20

    On 'Dinner While On Fire..' wow, I appreciate that you listened that intently. It was a reactionary performance based on frustration with creative block...and I was just kinda like screw it, i'm playing whatever my fingers do.
    Going back to it, there's too much jumble. But... The comments have all been really awesome and positive, like yours. Thank you again!

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 19

    The full real saying from some famous poem is only thieves and lovers like the dark. But i used that recently so did a slightly cheat version.

  • @thetau  Feb 18

    Ah Yes, but if I had of added those cheezy strings, you would have thought that the shadows had actually written it. Those cheezy strings were just a leftover from the 50s. When the "Ventures" started to compete in this new genre we started to get that Americanized Surf song, and then the Beach boys took the whole thing into doing Nip-ups in the sand. But hey... we love it all no matter who we are or where we live.

  • @deena  Feb 16

    These several years I've been following you here - I wasn't sure if you were "Angelina Powersuit" or "Angel in a Power Suit." Now I am glad to know. Either way, it's a wonderful name.

  • @johnstaples  Feb 16

    Thanks for listening to The Raven. The mix is not finished but generally I put the vocals louder in the mix because...I like it that way! ๐Ÿ˜

  • @matthew62  Feb 15

    Thanks for the listen and kind comments regarding Sail Away.

  • @kenficara  Feb 15

    Yes, the pink really is that bad. ๐Ÿ˜

  • @majordanby  Feb 15

    There was an after thought of Syria with the lines โ€œwere still living hereโ€.

  • @majordanby  Feb 15

    Thank you for listening / commenting on bleach my bones. There is no specific meaning that I know of, it just sounded good and alongside other words gives off a good vibe. The lyrics tend to get their own meaning when they are finished.

    I like the Earnest Hemingway way of writing whereby each word should sound good.

  • @candle  Feb 15

    I still get butterflies when I play live. Only during the first song, though. After that I seem to settle in & enjoy the music & the experience. That's the trick. Enjoying the experience - whether recording, rehearsing or playing live.

    See You In The Shadowsโ€ฆ

  • @candle  Feb 15

    I've done a lot of improv & live-to-tape stuff. In fact, it's my goto M.O. & it feels a lot more comfortable to me than sitting down & writing out sections of songs (which I also do). I find closing my eyes & focusing on an image or idea really helps. Then I just start playing. The biggest thing I've learned is that what I rationalize as a "mistake" while playing (or listening back after I've recorded) is not really a mistake. That off-note or rhythmic stumble is there for a reason. I might not know what that reason is. But its part of the experience. I see recording as capturing a moment in time. Songs, therefor, are always evolving. I neer play a song the same way twice. And I like that. Thank you so much for your great comment on Shadowspawn. It really means a lot.

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 14

    Thank you for your kind words about #27 - hereโ€™s a stripped back version with the two ukes, knee slaps, and vocal.

  • @davewermers Feb 14

    Thanks for listening and commenting on "Burned". It is much appreciated.

  • @namjunerobot  Feb 14

    Thanks for the encouragement and shucks I dunno about all that but, I'm tryin'.

  • @candle  Feb 13

    Glad you enjoyed the ride on my Venusian Lust. It was a lot of fun to make. Thanks for the great comment!

    See You In The Shadowsโ€ฆ

  • @lenigmusx1 Feb 13

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments on "Our Souls Lament" Mvt I. I will get back to listen to your songs in short order. This Fawm has been difficult so far.

  • @namjunerobot  Feb 12

    Long time no hear.... I can relate to your FAWM timeline.. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @cherok40  Feb 11

    Thanks a lot for your nice comments! Much appreciated! There are SO many songs here so I am amazed every time someone take time to listen and comment on one of my tracks.

  • @majordanby  Feb 10

    Thank you for stopping by and listening / commenting. Yesterdayโ€™s Clothes does indeed sound like something else, I just couldnโ€™t get away from it. It was the first two chords that came to hand. It started out with no serious intentions but was great fun in the end.

    Sorry for the late response and getting to your party late: great tunes, just catching up now.

  • @kenficara  Feb 10

    Thanks for your comments! But I love your songs, so no, donโ€™t stop. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Thanks for the comment on Particle Life! Glad you enjoyed it ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 9

    Hey... Just wanted to make sure to say that I am SO glad you are back! I already listened to your song, but apparently didn't leave a comment. I will fix that. Have fun! Hi there!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @ferry0123 Feb 7

    Hey...thank you for checking out my second. I vaguely remember the Flaming Lips. I'll check 'm out, gives me something to do ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @candle  Feb 7

    Thanks for your kind words on my Ricky Martin's Corpse song. I've always seen FAWM as the perfect place to push myself beyond my comfort zone & really try out new things. I guess that's how I ended up writing an EDM song this year. Whodda thunk LOL. Again, thanks for the comment!

    See You In The Shadowsโ€ฆ

  • @thetau  Feb 6

    Hey there, Girl, I'm soooo glad to see you back again this year.
