    Thanks for listening, so glad you enjoyed "Two kinds of people". Yes, there's definitely some Byrne in there.

  • @tamsnumber4  3 days

    Thank you for your kind comments on my song, "Wash Me Clean" and collab "Who We Really Are"!

  • @toms 3 days

    "Abacus Rising" is the first name on the fake band "A is for ABBA" thread, and has absolutely no meaning whatsoever. Twas brillig, and all. 😀

  • @musicsongwriter  4 days

    Thank you for your response Barbara. Please take care. I feel for you.

  • @musicsongwriter  4 days

    Hi Barbara, you are very welcome. I'm sorry for what you have to go through. I saw a challenge posted on forum about creating a song about talking to death, that's why I thought it was your take on the challenge.

  • @gerrybhoy  6 days

    Hi Barbara, thank you for the kind comment. It is 6/8 as you say, we used a folk feel with extended chords that skew it.

    I can't seem to find your email address on your profile?

  • @mariekevinkmusic  1 week

    Thanks for the kind comments. Feel free to rip my song off. I'm happy to send you a link to the original one though. So you can see exactly how derivative it is 😉

  • @musicsongwriter  1 week

    Impossible! I'm absolutely stuck on the idea to make it work. I had similar situation but nowhere near as many attempts. Still working on it. Missed skirmish as a result. But determined to make it happen 😀 Thank you Barbara, what you are saying makes perfect sense to me but once we get into the spell of the idea of creating we go by emotions 😀

  • @musicsongwriter  1 week

    Hi Barbara, yes I can adjust the instruments individually and notes individually. Thank you so much for your kind advice. I'll have a go at the other instruments more. Thank you.

  • @musicsongwriter  1 week

    Hi Barbara, thank you so much for listening and commenting on Blackbird. I guess some compositions are in the need of adjusting multiply times. I can honestly say that I've changed the settings for about 100 times! Either I felt that the bird was too loud or too soft, or the orchestra was too full or too weak. To cut the story short I've adjusted it again after your comment. Hope I've done it better. Thank you so much for your honest opinion, I appreacite it and I'm very grateful. If you happen to have a chance to listen again please kindly share with me your thoughts. I'd like to make this piece work as I feel spiritually connected with it. Thank you again.

    Wanted to let you know the EP with Eric is now up on Bandcamp:


    CDs just shipped out to us, so let me know if you'd like a physical copy, and I'll tell you when the discs arrive.

    Thanks for your encouragement!

    Thanks for the feedback on Oz Compr! Staying engaged with you all helps to keep me pushing through this challenge!

    Expectations and self doubt...girl, I own the top floor of that shack, but it's just you and me and friends here. This is where you are soul searching and no one and nothing should get in the way of a good soul search....hugs.

  • @splittybooms  2 weeks

    Hi there, Barbara - you commented about the piano on my song 'No Craps Given', asking if there'll be more like that down the road.
    My relationship with the keys is a point of embarrassment for me - I spend too much time programming in my DAW, finding chords and melodies and then just plopping them into a sequencer...instead of sitting down with just me and my board and...playing. So that stuff you heard in the beginning, was me setting out to do just that with the 'record' button on and whatever came out would be what I got. As you heard, I kept screwing mad and slammed down on the keys. That was not planned. The song came from that anger lol
    Not to write a book here lol
    But maybe I'll do a more piano-involved track this year where I don't turn it into...that 😀

    Yes, rootless sharp fourths and flat ninths have entirely fucked my dadgad leanings lately but the ribcage of my former self has been reported of late to have been seen bobbing and heaving in a mild north-westerly gale fourteen nautical miles east of the Dogger Bank.
    I can't wait for the thudding helicopter of FAWM........
    I do absolutely love this community of souls, writers, nutters, singers, thinkers, plodders, plunkers.....
    such a joy to feel connected to men and women who haven't been sterilised by the so-called industrial revofuckinglution...,,,
    but please don't get me started..

  • @timfatchen  3 weeks

    ...knocking at the golden door!

  • @nancyrost  3 weeks

    Thank you!! Very soon -- we're sending it to the printers tomorrow!

  • @nancyrost  3 weeks

    Excited to hear what you do this FAWM too!
    I've spent the last year working on an EP with @standup, and we're done with it just in time to turn attention back to FAWM, so no time to plan anything else -- I'm sure absolutely everything I do in February will be a complete surprise.

  • @bking  3 weeks
