sent music snippet now as well
sent lyrics to you for LFC-2, part 3, to your email.
At work currently, will send this evening.
And I'm just using various sounds from different vsts and stuff in Reason.
Well I've got some sounds that will work for synth stuff, and I actually tried to replicate the intro drums to take on me - both sounds and pattern. Its just an 8 bar loop for the drums right now, but I could send it to you to see if you want to use that as our base drum pattern?
Ok cool, I'll work on Take On Me.
So you want me to try to reproduce the sounds they've used in that tune, and then we'll use them in our own song? Just want to make sure I'm understanding, because this'll be the main thing I work on this week.
Take On Me is in my daily rotation, but I'm not familiar with the other track. I'll take a listen.
This does sound like fun.
I did a...."cover" of Take On Me way back, very generic as I was doing it just to learn the song, and its sat on my PC since. It was just chorus, unfortunately, and not the iconic synth riff. So I think I can help with the cherry picking, especially with that song.
As far as making something new from our basket of cherries, how do you prefer to approach it? With you being the song-writer and vocalist, I'd be more comfortable with you taking the lead and just telling me what you need from me. But of course, I'm cool with whatever! Like you said, for fun!
Thanks for commenting on my song "Insecure", I appreciate the listen!
That's a great idea.
However, my old school listening was mostly in the r&b, funk, and electro (house, freestyle, etc).
I've TRIED to emulate some 80s rock with varying success.
What would you like my contribution to be?
I can tell you up front, I'm not a lyricist nor singer. So those two are all yours! 😀
Acutally, you've sparked me to ask some folks for some stuff. Thanks lol
Wow I appreciate your words, man.
I'm very shy when it comes to collabs because I don't wanna let down the other person haha....its a lot of pressure. But I am open to them if someone asks.
I can try to do whatever you have in mind if you come up with something. I've been struggling this year, honestly...and my 'ideas bank' has been low on funds lol
So yeah if you get an idea, let me know and I'll try my best to do whatever I can for you! I appreciate you reaching out to me 😀
Thank you for the kind comments! I love your music! Sweet guitar works!❤️
Hi, thanks so much for listening & commenting! I appreciate it!
Thanks for commenting on "Supermarketin suloinen kassaneiti". There's no way I am going to tell her about this tune. 😀
Even though my Russian teacher appreciated that I have made a song with her name as a title, so it might be a good idea to tell about it. But it could lead into some serious consequences like going out with her, better not to risk it. I don't have that risk with my teacher, she lives abroad. 👍
Thanks for the lovely comments on my track. At work right now but I’ll listen to your work this evening!
hey! I'm thrilled that my comment made your day, but I assure you it's well-deserved! The beauty of FAWM is finding so many rich and great songs to listen too... I think the music here blows current contemporary radio away IMHO
Unfortunately, I'm all collabed out this FAWM.. been around for a bit so my trusty army of FAWMers that I work with means that my roster is full... but anything can happen! And hit me up at the start of next FAWM at least; would love to work with you (obviously)!
If you got a tune in mind, feel free to send it my way as I might have some spare time for all I know... kristiab<at>me.com ... have a great FAWM; you sure are nailing it!
Thank you so much for the kind comment on "Sundazzle"! You hit the nail on the head -- Johnny Marr is my absolute hero when it comes to guitar!
Thank you so much for your comment . Brian wilson is one of my heroes as it goes 👍
Happy FAWM! Just checked out all your music - your themes are fascinating and magical. Love your connection to life and the way you present it. I'd appreciate your insight on any of my tracks!
Hey thanks for the comment, and welcome to the FAWM! Deadwood? What's the reference? (It's a big world and sometimes stuff just slips through the cracks 😀 ) I'll give one of your tunes a listen, just now.
Thank you so much for your kind comment on my doctor who instrumental attempt and for taking the time to listen to my music on Bandcamp and posting such a wonderful opinion about my music. Thank you also for your kind offer to collaborate. I will be delighted to. Please feel free to send me your thoughts via my contact button here (a little picture of the envelope).
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for your comments on ‘Into the Unknown’. Appreciated.
Have a great FAWM.

Thank you so much for your kind words on my soundboard about Here At A Distance! 😁 Welcome tot he FAWMily 😁
Welcome to FAWM!
Hello there. Welcome to Fawm 2020. I took a listen and especially those acoustic demos sounded really nice with XTC circa English Settlement influences on some of the guitar chords. I hope you have a good time here. 😀
