Influences: A bit of everything.
In the past I've used strings, pianos, synths etc in addition to guitars, but this year I want to try and cover all parts with guitars.
This means careful layering and using guitars to play the role of other instruments.
This is mainly because it's quicker and I need to optimize my use of time. Also my MIDI controller keyboard doesn't work properly and it's a hassle.
Let's see how well this works out.
Thank you so much for your comment on that 'born without the sports gene' song-- as a big Loudon Wainwright fan, I really appreciate that comparison- you made my day! I gotta get around to listening to your stuff here, the little bits i heard sounded fantastic...
No problem Rob, it's an absolute please to listen to your stuff, so well constructed and recorded and always such a nice mix I don't know how you do it! Keep em coming!!
Hey thanks! Yeah I love the idea of Mixbus but I need more time with it. There are some things that were totally natural about mixing on it, but others that I didn’t get yet. I’m not sure how to use my plugins with it and I have no idea about the monitoring. It’s fawm so I did it anyway. I probably should have rethought using that WITH new monitors that I’m not used to yet, but again it’s fawm so that’s the time to try out things.
Thanks for the comment! The drums are pretty much Addictive drums Diabolic presets, I have found they need really little mixing usually, as they are allready tweaked quite far.
Thanks for checking out a couple of my tunes!
Totally impressed from your song #5 swagger on.... terrific man... Added it to my favorites of fawm 2019... Wow, on second listen I also hear the back vox, fantastic!!! Rock on!!
Let’s do it.
Hey there, I just had to watch you because I always get caught up with FAWM and forget to check in with what you’re doing until late. I will give a listen soon. Looks like you’re doing well!
Rob! Hey, what's up man? Thanks for the comment on my Janis song.
Thanks for the comments on my song Rob. Yes, DuoJet all the way. It has been difficult with creativity this year. I do have a few pieces kind of started. We shall see. I will get round to listening to your music soon.
Dark right it works for you. The drum part sounds totally solid and completely authentic. Even the dynamics sounded good as far as I remember.
Thanks for your comment on my song! 😀 😀
Aww, thanks Rob. Coming from you, that means an awful lot to me! 😀
I guess I was channelling more than a little Ozric's in that one. I hadn't realised until you mentioned it though.
Thanks for your comment on my song Since You Left. Happy FAWMing!
Thanks, bro. I wasn't sure if I was the only one feeling this way. Oh, and by the way, I don't plan on doing political tunes either. My first song is just a social observation, not intended as political even though I tagged it that way. Prayers appreciated and we'll keep pushing forward!
Thanks for the comment on “On the Brink.” Neil Young - interesting.
Hey Buddy! Absolutely. Things have taken a rather interesting turn for me. I've got two family members who are very ill and on the verge of passing on. It's very stressful right now so the creativity time is super limited. And I've thought about getting over there to catch up with you, as well. So - on the bucket list it goes. When you have something please send it my way. At this point FAWM wouldn't be complete without a track from us, right? 😉
Thank you for the kind words on my song Birth.
Thank you for listening to my German song and even putting in the effort of translating it. I put the google translation into my lyric notes, cause they are actually pretty good!
Hi Rob! Have a good one!
Hi man, I loved your style on your first song and waiting to hear some more of you. Good luck with the rest of fawm, great beginning. See you around with your new 3 guitars.
What's up man?! Do work son!!
Yes, that sounds great. Look for an email from me!
Hello Rob! Yes, I'd love to collab with you! Looking forward to every day of February!
Hello! Glad to see you again, happy FAWMing. 😀
I almost went for a Jag too but could resist the Tele in the end
Have a great Feb
Hi Rob - indeed both 2008 debuts. Collab? Why the hell not!..
BTW, what are your new guitars? I recently sold both electrics to buy a lovely Custom Shop Heavy Relic Tele
My dude! My ace! I don't have to guess - you're ready to do it up next month. You think you'll have time to swing by the Jelly Factory?
