  • @ustaknow 6 weeks

    Hahh, thank you, re: Saw. I have that sitting next to me, waiting. It was an impulse, don't remember why now. When in the "Flow" I just go with it and don't "think" to much about it 😀
    - I love music! OMG! 😀

  • @skibum1066  6 weeks

    Thanks for your generous comments on Love is the Light. It's not perfect yet the round harmonies must beget better but... it's a work in progress. I listened to some of you works. St Francis Assisi Prayer, Resbaladizo and Hari Om. I like your sense of humor and your use of other languages and your compositional liberation. It's been fun. Thanks

  • @siebass  6 weeks

    Electric guitars do give you a lot of tonal variety... you could also always test out a pickup on your uke. I've got a buddy who gets some really cool tones and sounds that way, and then you're in for a lot less $$. It does take a bit more to pick up and play (you need an amp), but I always have fun with my electric guitars.

  • @hmorg  6 weeks

    Thanks for the comment on "Trash Man"! If you liked it, I would like to recommend the rest of the Mega Man 2 challenge songs, they were all great:

  • @audrey  6 weeks

    Thank you for listening to Choir's Back and for the kind words.

  • @psyt 7 weeks

    Thanks for the comments, they put a smile on my face. 😀

  • @nadine 7 weeks

    Thank you so much for listening and reviewing. I'm glad you enjoyed my music. "Embrace the storm" will have some real guitars in the final version but this can take a while.

  • @apolez3 7 weeks

    Hello, just wanted to add I do works towards quality tho personally.... hmmm

  • @skibum1066  7 weeks

    Thanks for your generous words on my Collab with Kathy "Love is the Light". I looked at your resume. You are one VERY Productive Songwriter!! I like your St Francis song and "Oh To Live in a forest"

  • @jeff9  7 weeks

    Thanks for the kind words on my little country numbers, man.

  • @zecoop  7 weeks

    Thanks so much -I am heading around listening more and will get to yours again tomorrow. Appreciated the super nice comments! I love that Hammond it is a M100 which is what was used on Green Onions and it was $40. The B3/C3 are super expensive and these sound close enough to me! They still use the same tone generators just don’t have all of the tones but close! L100 or M100 or M3 can be found for super cheap (but not cheap on your back - they are super heavy!!!

  • @wolfkier 7 weeks

    Hey Chip, thanks for the visit and your (always) encouraging comments. I'll be back to repay your kindness later today. I encourage you if you have a spare 4 minutes b4 the site shuts down, not to miss my 6th song, Then Comes Five, which I'm especially proud of. Maybe best thing I ever made. I'd hate for those I've known so long on these challenges to miss it in the fray.

  • @rainchaser  7 weeks

    I appreciate your comment on my song, "Please Treat Me Better".

    That concept album idea sounds fun I may do it for 50/90, if not definitely next FAWM.

  • @jeff9  8 weeks

    Thanks for listening in and commenting on a couple of mine there, Fort Myers (home to Love Boat--word's greatest ice cream!)

  • @janeg  8 weeks

    I would be delighted to hear your recording of Companions in Utter Darkness music! With chords if possible so Phil can learn. Sorry for not noticing your note sooner; I had stopped checking so often.

  • @wrenarcher  8 weeks

    Hi Chip!
    Thanks for taking the time to listen to my song “It’s High Time” and for the kind words and compliments. I really appreciate it. Take care!

  • @trolls2 8 weeks

    chip! i remember you!! thanks for listening to 'lemonade'. i agree i was just thinking when i can perform in front of a live audience again that will be a fun one to do!

  • @metalfoot  Mar 9

    Good sir,
    I fear I have neglected your FAWM output altogether to this point of 2021. This is an oversight to be corrected. Thanks for the kind words!

  • @farmyardorchestra Mar 8

    Hello, Chip! Thanks for sipping and reviewing my Pear & Cranberry Whiskey! I hope you didn't wake up the following day with a bad hangover. 😀

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 8

    Nylon string guitar, but like uke chucking style.

  • @gm7  Mar 7

    Thx for the kind words on Banjo-Guitar Tune. I am just learning the Banjo so i have a ways to go. Thx again

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Mar 7

    Thanks! I've been woefully neglectful to yours and some others tunes this year as well, was just so much great stuff and so many great new and new to me fawmers. I'll try to get around to hearing some more before the site closes up shop. I was whistling your washing dishes song day before yesterday though and it took me a while to place it LOL

  • @madeline  Mar 6

    My apologies for the double post. Not sure how to delete it. I only see an option to edit it.

  • @madeline  Mar 6

    Thanks for listening and for leaving your kind words on “This Time Last Year”. You have been quite prolific with your songwriting. Congrats!

  • @headfirstonly  Mar 6

    Ha - I have no room for a genuine B-3 in my poky little studio! It's the Arturia V Collection emulation, which is pretty darn close. Thanks for the nice comment.

  • @emkaydeebee  Mar 4

    Thanks so much for listening and commenting on Contemplation - I’m glad it had an effect. And thanks for your response on the MH thread too... appreciate that.

  • @gb9  Feb 28

    Thank you so much for the appreciation and kind comment on 'Paused' 😀
    It still is a terrible memory and sadly relatable to so many of us...

  • @theodamus  Feb 27

    Thank you so much for your comment on “Hold”! You pretty much got the picture, I was in fact sitting looking out the window overlooking the town and feeling the early morning lockdown ennui ❤️

  • @candle  Feb 24

    Thank you for the comment on Sensibility. Yeah, gotta power thru the FAWM Goblin's pranks no matter what. 😁

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @scubed  Feb 23

    Thanks so much for your comment on “Wolf Song”!

  • @daveyboy103  Feb 23

    Thank you for you kind comments on Ghosts

  • @jamkar  Feb 22

    Thank you so much Chip. I am a big Lynch fan. I will get free and check out more of yours.

  • @abudabard12514  Feb 22

    Thanks so much for your comments on my tunes! I do pick some banjo. I haven't gotten into it this year yet either, though I did some banjolele on a tune called "Play In the Darkness" this month but I'd like to get a banjo tune in before the month is out. This month is flying by for me. Looking forward to hearing your creations! Have you been playing banjo a long time? I'll watchlist you. Judging from your influences I anticipate we'd get along just fine

  • @ustaknow Feb 22

    Hahh, thank you; what's weirder is it became the backing for the re-write, re-written again, "Satan, gonna burn your kingdom down" public domain spiritual:

    I heard both tracks in my head later that night and said, "self, you didn't write that...", "oh, but maybe you should". So I dumped the lyrics into it, hahhh. - Don't jah just love music!

  • @berni1954  Feb 22

    Glad you liked my song for an old friend. I am particularly happy that you dug the solo. It is only in relatively recent times that I have dared to start trying to solo, so praise for that was most welcome and encouraging.

  • @sjbatavia  Feb 22

    Thanks Chip, I'm finally back. I got slammed with Covid at the end of January and am finally feeling human again. Now I'm trying to catch up on FAWMing. Hope you are doing well. I'm up for a collaboration, if you have anything in mind, let me know.

  • @kenmattsson  Feb 21

    @chipwithrow That's a high complement! This is the type of song (Three Jolly Young Men: that gets let loose in the greater world. I guess I just need to post this somewhere so that people can find it!

  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 18

    How lovely! Viva Nutella!

  • @siebass  Feb 17

    Thanks for the listens yesterday, and you should definitely try the FakeIt challenge! It's always so fun to see how different everyone hears a tune in their mind. I hope your fawm is going well this year

  • @vegansongs  Feb 17

    Hi Chip! Thank you so much for your kind word on Double Crosser. It was a fun collab!

  • @janeg  Feb 17

    Thank you for your lovely comments on Lana And Reality. The latter doesn’t appeal to Phil, so if you like it and want to compose music, that would be wonderful. I am sure the lyrics will need to be adapted once there is a tune.

  • @vivalarayna Feb 14

    Thank you for your comments on "While You've Got the Time (For Kenny)" and "CoVIDiot Song". I appreciate the feedback on the "carded wool" lines as I wasn't sure how many people would actually get the reference. Glad it resonated with you and you may be right about a whole other song hiding in that concept!

  • @estebanlartigue  Feb 12

    thank you for your comments in my songs !

  • @dani312 Feb 9

    Hey there. Thanks so much for your feedback on 'Michael'. Its so good to hear what others think because this one is so personal to me that its kind of hard for me to evaluate it, if that makes sense.. Great to see you on here again this year. Looking forward to checking out your songs. Happy Fawming ! 😀

  • @berni1954  Feb 9

    Hi Chip, thanks for your very positive review of my "Is Your Ride Clean?" Surf anthem, eh? That'd be great! 😁

  • @infilktion Feb 6

    Thank you for the kind words on Han's Falcon!

  • @srcoops  Feb 5

    You might play with the words a little on Uke. I am not entirely satisfied with what I gave you.

  • @srcoops  Feb 5

    Looking forward to your work on Uke. Thanks

  • @berni1954  Feb 5

    Hi Chip, thanks for your positive feedback on my song "Salome and Poor John" 👌

  • @mikegtz  Feb 5

    Hiya Chip, good to see you here again. I'll be checking in on you.

  • @srcoops  Feb 4

    Take a look at Uke.

  • @srcoops  Feb 4

    Take a look at Uke.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 4

    Thanks Chip. Maybe we can find a female to do it, or maybe I can speak it-I am not much of a vocalist. Go ahead with the music if you want and we'll see.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 2

    Happy Ukulele Day!

  • @pfaffbrill  Feb 2

  • @coolparadiso  Jan 20

    Good to see you here, heres to a great Fawm.

  • @oneslowtyper  Jan 20

    Happy New Year, Chip! I have to apologize for kicking Trump out of our state and handing him off to the good people of Florida. I'll be praying for all of you. LOL

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Jan 17

    Thanks! funky and nasty is high praise! I've done so many short little things like that this month, I plan on probably just mashing a bunch of them together. That crazy bones jam was super catchy! great tune to drink my morning(well afternoon) coffee to.

  • @srcoops  Jan 12

    84 and still kicking. Looking forward to hearing your work and maybe getting something together.

  • @metalfoot  Jan 10

    Welcome back for another year of musical merriment!
