  • @tamsnumber4  5 weeks

    Thanks for listening to my song "Amelia" and my collab song "Where I Want You / By My Side", I appreciate it!!

  • @kembole 5 weeks

    Of course! I'll bounce a wav as soon as I finish my holidays πŸ˜€ Thanks for the collab again!

  • @iwilleatyou 6 weeks

    Cheers Dragondreams! Thanks for the listen!

  • @audrey  6 weeks

    Thanks so much for all your lovely comments on my music this FAWM. I always value your feedback. I hope you had a great FAWM 2021, and it looks like you did because of all your great new songs and, of course, the fantastic FAWM party you coordinated once again this year at Castle Dragondreams. πŸ˜€ (I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, but I'll grab a cup of coffee and sit back and enjoy it later today.) and I look forward to 'seeing' you here again next year. Hope you have a great year and stay safe. πŸ˜€

  • @beat  6 weeks

    inflicted, as being granted by a old manβ€˜s sound wisdom
    much joy here.

  • @seppo 6 weeks

    Thanks man. This was how I felt when it was time to wrap my feelings from last month.
    Little bit insanity, lots of different parts needed to fitted together without thinking at all. Rush is a best motivator πŸ˜€

  • @cts  6 weeks

    Woo hoo! Thanks, matey! πŸ˜€

  • @lvgd09  6 weeks

    Sorry for the confusion regarding the house party (which was awesome). No, didn't send it, I was too late. I played it but didn't send it...my bad...still I enjoyed the house party very much and thank you. Sorry for the confusion. What I actually did was acoustic guitar playing a long with the track. I just got so busy this year I forgot and never sent it. Thank you

  • @dzdandcunfsd  6 weeks

    ah no worries! I would probably assume synth too! Magnificent job you did stitching all that nuttiness together too btw. I finally had a chance to listen to it all as I was going to lay down and take a nap, but it kept me intrigued throughout, no easy feat this late in fawm LOL. It's quite the entertaining listen it does come off as some of the older radio variety hours........just with less ads 🀣 In a year packed with all sorts of great stuff that's definitely up there towards the top of my favorites.

  • @metalfoot  6 weeks

    Was what I did OK with "Bring Me Some Comfort"?

  • @richaaaay  6 weeks

    Thank you for listening to Howl'n and busting my Zong! I thoroughly enjoyed the house party bit. I signed up for FAWM on Feb 11 having no idea what I was getting into. So glad I did. Such a wonderful place and your house party is proof. For me it's all about the people and community and that's what you captured so well, with an abundance of humor along the way. I'm already looking forward to next year...

  • @grenzgaengerin 6 weeks

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment on "Last Joke - Trollsaga3"
    I was really happy about your comments and the collaboration with you!
    Stay healthy and next year we'd love to do something together again - ok?
    Be blessed

  • @cts  6 weeks

    Dropbox invite resent! Thanks! πŸ˜‰

  • @tunecat  6 weeks

    I couldn't cope with skirmishing yesterday and fell asleep early only to wake up at one and check FAWM to discover your epic masterpiece of a houseparty. Yeah. Amazing.. ! I was laughing out loud.. I'm listing to the link you sent me now.. ! Wow.. also a busy, grooving, vibrant, energising epic..

  • @spazsquatch 6 weeks

    Thanks for the comment on Butterfly Effect, whould anyone mind being compared to one the the "all time great" rock bands? I know I'm not. Cheers.

  • @scottlake 6 weeks

    If you get a chance to play a Squier Bronco, play it first unplugged. Gall in love then immediately plan a replacement pickup purchase.

  • @sapient  6 weeks

    Things are on their way via the power of the interwebs...

  • @tunecat  7 weeks

    You've got the job!! FAb.. Thanks so much.. I'd love love love to play this kinda thing.. Inspired to do a few more tracks like this.. I'lll post.... !!!!

  • @daveyboy103  7 weeks

    Thanks, his lyrics for this song were GREAT!

  • @metalfoot  7 weeks

    still working on our collab - would you be comfortable with me doing a final mix when I'm done my part? Just thinking in terms of reducing your workload with the house party and all!

  • @grenzgaengerin 7 weeks

    Thank you very much for your comments for my experimental piece "VΓΆlva" and "troll-Dance" - they've definitely gotten cheekier, but that's troll-style πŸ˜‰

  • @grenzgaengerin 7 weeks

    I'm happy - tomorrow after my early shift I'll get to work fresh πŸ˜‰

  • @tunecat  7 weeks

    Hi there. I really hoped you'd check that recoder tune out. Yeah it works as a tune that could involve kids playing or uploading their recorder contributions (the harmony or bass parts are two or three notes max) plus if it becomes integral to the story - if it's live - they get to do it again and again... .. Its so nice of you to stop by and check out what I'm doing. Much much much appreciation. I uploded the slap bass you sent me (a while back now) to see if I could do something with it..to honour your nice comments (which I see you spread everywhere - it seems I only need to listen to someone for the first time to find you've already visited, and given them a resounding pat on the back... Anyway gushing appreciation, Mr Dreams.

  • @ajna1960  7 weeks

    Heya Mr Paul ! You wanted to hear this when Corey musicated it πŸ˜€ https://fawm.org/songs/115623/

  • @metalfoot  7 weeks

    Sounds like a plan! I'm hoping to finish up a couple collabs yet today and then I'll put yours next up on my personal docket to get done after those two.

  • @metalfoot  7 weeks

    Do you still want to potentially do something or is the house party enough of a metalfoot collab for this year? πŸ˜€

  • @jamkar  7 weeks

    Thanks for the kind comments on the video collab Paul.
    Now I can turn my attention to the DD House Party!

  • @jaegerin  7 weeks

    Thanks Paul! Have just mailed the wav file to your hudsonics address.

  • @sw1n3flu  7 weeks

    yes received. Do I just need to record may parts and send as a wav - as in I guess we're not doing a radio style play where we're actually having a conversation? Presumably you can chop things up.

  • @jaegerin  7 weeks

    Hi, and thanks for the lovely comment. I would love it if you wanted to add some woodwind. Am going to bed now but let me know what you need - eg I can send you the .wav version tomorrow.

  • @vuduluv 7 weeks

    and consider yourself watched!

  • @vuduluv 7 weeks

  • @metalfoot  7 weeks

    Re: "I really should get round to watching this series! And this lovely song has pushed me into to doing it!"

    Ah you have uncovered my evil plan! I am glad you enjoyed the song and I hope you also enjoy the series...

  • @grenzgaengerin 8 weeks

    YouΒ΄re heartly welcome

  • @grenzgaengerin 8 weeks

    You can write me a message on Soundcloud or :
    would you like to make a sound carpet / melody and if you have ideas - I am open to everything. I am happy about what is coming and going

  • @grenzgaengerin 8 weeks

    Thank you very much for your comment on "Troll-Trap" - yes, there were definitely small creatures present πŸ˜‰ (my cats too πŸ˜‰) I already have a rather large goblin sitting on my neck (but I don't know if the saying also for a leprechaun-like, humorous person with a skirmish in mind in English?)

  • @povosos  Feb 13

    Thank you for the comment πŸ˜€

  • @didib Feb 13

    Thank you for your lovely comment on Cyril's Millions, I'm so glad you like it!

  • @gerrybhoy  Feb 11

    Hi Paul, I was unable to post @dannk1's song with more than two collaborators. Sorry. Danny's lyric and your elegant bass lines really made for a great writing and recording experience. What a great collaboration. Thank you Paul as you say, "one of the good guys".

  • @zecoop  Feb 11

    Hooray for the $20 condenser microphone! πŸ˜€

  • @audrey  Feb 10

    Thanks so much for the kind words about my song "Choir's Back!" As always, I really appreciate it. πŸ˜€

  • @valeriecox  Feb 8

    Holy cow! I dropped in to see what you've been up to and you have 18 songs posted! What? Wow! You're amazing!

  • @tunecat  Feb 8

    Listening to Hidden Meaning on youtube. Is that FAB or what?

  • @tunecat  Feb 8

    Hey Mr Dreams - I posted a version of Miracles. And would love it if you wanted to check it out.

  • @twyllodrus Feb 8

    Cheers for your nice comment on "Hong Kong Pfui".

  • @wazylizard  Feb 7

    Thanks for explaining how you are using dice for randomised sound creation. I have to say that I prefer loose constraint. Especially with an anything-goes philosophy: there are so many noise-making devices that are worth using that binding a number to an instrument would limit a lot the possibilities 😁

    And at the moment my main thing is to have one ambient track a day, and I'm also trying to make collabs with human beings, and not only plastic cubes!

  • @kembole Feb 7

    Great, I'll email you.

  • @kembole Feb 7

    Hiya, left you a comment? Howbout a collab?

  • @tunecat  Feb 7

    Morning! Thanks for stopping by and checking me out.. I did a bit of spoken word thingimajig last night.. will be uploading later. Very rough.. but interesting to do..
    I enjoyed yesterday so much!!

  • @ajna1960  Feb 6

    There is a story behind it.... I'll fill you in via voice chat ?

  • @gerrybhoy  Feb 6

    Astonishing, would you like to help me get to 5 ?

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 6

    Thank you for your encouragement.

  • @gerrybhoy  Feb 6

    You've got me blushing, thank you for the listen and the very kind comments.

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 6

    Thank you sir for listening to more of my ditties and writing some comments....I'm hoping to get one of my sharpened axes out today after a few chores...You are only 1 song away from the finish line....but I'm sure you will shoot past it!

  • @mikeb Feb 5

    Thanks for the comment on my song for Tammy's Famous Picture challenge!

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 5

    My pleasure. And explosions. Explosions are always a good ending for prog-related hijinks. I picked up a fantastic sample pack a while ago; I think it might have been this one: https://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/free-explosion-sfx-vfx-elements/

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 5


  • @writeandwrong  Feb 5

    hehe or do you?? 😜

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 5

  • @blindkiwi  Feb 5

    Ok already! And thanks πŸ˜‰

  • @beat  Feb 5

    Thx for your kind support

  • @crutherford  Feb 5

    Wow! Thank you so much! I don't know many other people who grew up with goats. I loved my nanny goat Heidi. She was one of my best friends. She was whip smart and super mischievious. She also liked to steal the cigarettes from our blacksmith when he came to visit. Heidi was a total hoot.

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 5

    Thanks for the comments on Strato-FAWMing. I'm quite slow with stuff at the moment due to work...hoping to get a breather in the next days....I have an axe I've sharpened that needs to be used...

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 4

    That's wonderful! Keep them comming.

  • @scubed  Feb 4

    Thanks so much for the lovely comment, Paul!

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 4

    Hi Paul, you are welcome. It was a pleasure to comment on your beautiful song. Wow, you've created so many already! How wonderful!
    Thank you so much for your kind comment. Your support is very special to me.

  • @dannyk1 Feb 4

    Thanks for the props on Deeper and Deeper!

  • @aprilm  Feb 4

    Thanks - I will try to record something tonight if I can - meanwhile, you are prolific!!

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 4

    Hi, I found something for you; https://fawm.org/songs/112909/

  • @dannyk1 Feb 4

    I come over to to have a meet and greet and find that you're almost finished and were only 4 days in! Wow! Was going to wish you a productive FAWM. Now I simply want to borrow some mojo!

  • @gm7  Feb 3

    A deal at the cross roads...A Robert Johnson ref. You know your blues!
    I was going for that 78rpm sound...

  • @gm7  Feb 3

    Ok..no problem.

  • @gm7  Feb 3

    Thx for the nice comment on " It's All Right"- much appreciateD

  • @scubed  Feb 2

    Thanks for the lovely comment on β€œIt’s a New Day” - much appreciated!

  • @cblack Feb 2

    Thanks for the listen. Hadn't considered the musical theatre angle, but it fits with the characterisation.

  • @cblack Feb 2

    Sorry to have scared you, but perhaps you enjoyed the fear? 😁 Thanks for the listen though. πŸ˜€

  • @timfatchen  Feb 2

    Ah yes, the neighbours/wifely suggestion that using the sopranino at midnight is not such a good idea. It used to be the acoustic grand piano at 10pm...

  • @sw1n3flu  Feb 2

    Guess I only break PAs IRL ?!
    You made me laugh out loud - cheers!

  • @tunecat  Feb 2

    Hi there
    Thanks for stopping by neighbour!!

  • @mikeb Feb 2

    Thanks for the listen and comments on my Name song. Wish my fingerplaying lived up to your comments! Normally I would practice the song for a day first, then record the part several times to comp one good track - but this is FAWM, that will have to wait!

  • @downburst  Feb 2

    I know, it's been too long! I'm trying to be more... present here, but it's hard.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2

    I have a BM-700 mic that I picked up for $20CDN not that long ago. Wonder how it compares to the 800.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 2

    ...and while I'm raiding the fridge, I can't but help notice the absence of...recorders...in the output so far (taptaptap)

  • @frey Feb 2

    Thank you for the kind comment!!

  • @lazyafro  Feb 2

    wooo!! Welcome back and happy FAWMing!

  • @judypie  Feb 1

    Well I mean, if you *do* make any music that you think has need or space for some voxxx in there.. I did promise last year I would learn to play guitar properly so that we could collab this year! But I didnae do that 😭 I still want me a DD collab! πŸ˜›

  • @apolez3 Feb 1

    Hi there,,, Happy FAWMing!

  • @ajna1960  Feb 1


  • @vuduluv Feb 1

    thx! i write mostly funk, but i do some indie too. i have a lot unfinished songs (need lyrics) in both genres. looking forward to hearing your stuff!

  • @chariotbaldwin  Feb 1

    Hey Paul - happy FAWMing and I look forward to your new works.

  • @scubed  Feb 1

    Hello, Paul! Have a wonderful FAWM!

  • @the3queens  Feb 1

    Hey Paul! Happy FAWMing! Lori

  • @zecoop  Jan 31

    I would definitely love that!! Let's plan on it. πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Jan 31

    Understood and I hope you get some relief... I am wondering how my surgically fixed shoulder will hold up, but it seems to be doing ok so far. Surgery was on Dec 4 to repair minor tears in the labrum and rotator. My three weeks with covid set my rehab back but I'm doing well now and PT is making big progress. I've successfully been drumming and holding guitars for an hour. I have aches and pains afterwards, at night, but it's hard to tell the difference between that and normal age aches and pains, haha. πŸ˜‰

    Good luck on your rehab! Your 'texture' will be marvelous anyway. πŸ˜€
