PS: our wildly different styles makes me appreciate your efforts of sitting through every single one of my gut-wrenching navel-gazing trackd even more 😁
Aw thanks mate. I think you'll enjoy the penultimate more if you are looking to leave absurd feedback 😀 I love that FAWM helps me to learn to appreciate other people's craft, talent and skills, even if it is not a favourite genre. Hence I really do appreciate your stuff 😀
Hey thanks so much for all the listening, feedback, and encouragement! Will be sure to listen back and comment on yours as well! Thanks again!!! You’re the man!!!!!!
Lol your comments are making me giggle while Ad is trying to sleep next to me 😂 I’m gonna have to turn in to stop this madness. Goodnight!
Haha really! I thought I’d had a ridiculous comment from you on them all already! Well I sure am glad I went and fucked up all your shit in that case 😁
*checks out your shit* *fucks it up a bit* *laughs in an evil manner* *leaves*
Hey thanks for checking out my tracks. I had switched my Soundcloud tracks to private after FAWM because I didn’t realize people would still check them out afterwards and I’m working on them further for commercial release but switched them back to public. Should work now! Apologies!!!
thanks for the feedback my dude!
Yeah, could have done more but was in a play for the first couple weeks of the month 😉
Thank you!! ❤️🤘
Ha apologies in advance for the liners man. I looked at the last one I did after I posted it and.. jeez.. even I was bored. But yay for wife life! 😁
Haha think I just caught your first and last this year
I'll get back to that gooey creamy center 😀
Ha! Glad it had that effect! That was the idea 😁
(I assume you din't ACTUALLY injure yourself listening to a song... that would suck... 😉 )
Excellent! Do it do it do it, I wanna keep listening so I don’t have to accept Fawm is over 😭
😂😂 Lol at the thought of you setting a 5am alarm. Are you going for the finish or not bothering? 3 away man!
LOL, ok I checked.. it's... 5AM where you are??!?!?! You really didn't have to get up this early to read the liners 😝
Haha... I think it was actually keeping me sane. "Music soothes the savage beast" and all that stuff 😉
Yes I did read it and you’ll be hearing from my lawyer about getting my time back.
I am NEVER reading your liner notes again
dude! i just answered a call from a customer while reading your comment and just laughed IN THEIR FACE. I likely will be fired. So thank you, sincerely for that.
Yeah ditto here...what the fuck are you smoking Slade?? Your comments are as decipherable as egyptian heiroglyphs.
......Slut is a word made from Ltsu
The universe G-MAN, the universe
Hahahaha, is it wrong I don’t know what you mean by ANY of the comments you ever leave on our songs?? 😂 Kick off! Ramps up, you know! Get’s big, loud, fuckin mad shit yeeeah! Like, the opposite of a fade out basically
Thanks for the feedback on relativity I will re record the hook with ur notes
your point is well taken. i got the metaphor in the sung portion my mistake was that i took you to be the killer, but reading the lyrics i see the rap comes from the same voice as the singer. so the rap actually extends the metaphor and my first impression was wrong.
Like fucking hell you didn't have anything in your mouth. The mail intern has a big smile on his face. You bad IT boy you!
The constant parts 😂 I’m glad you got em all still dude
Me standby? Don't tell me what to do Slade! I don't do shit for nobody!!!
...ok I'll wait.
Hahahahaha don’t push me man, I’ll jump!
Yes 😞 Every once in a while they make me work a Saturday morning. Gotta be done man! If I don’t go into that office... Well.. they wouldn’t notice actually.. why the fuck do I ever go in?! I bet they’d literally pay me for YEARS before they caught on!
Thanks for the comment on Dreamcycle. Much appreciated!
As long as you cleared up after yourself it’s all good 😜
Hmmmmmmm mk11.. google suggests to me you’ve either been playing Mortal Kombat or sucking off Macaulay Kulkin... Either way, totally understandable you’d take a break for that.
😂Ur brand of crack is extra strong today
UR fucking sultry, now write another song already 😛
Well Jesus dude take your time! I thought you were DEAD.
Dude - my bad for getting back to you so late in the game. Not sure what's up with the player. I'll try again when I get home.
Sure bub, send it on over!
That is totally optimus man
Look mate (we do say mate a lot), unless you’re talking about Amazon Prime then no one knows what the fuck you’re wanging on about, k? But YASSSSS, I will also start using prime when I listen to your songs (unless they’re shit and I hate them) , but I will still keep digging everyone else’s. People will think I’m on crack if I start saying ‘this is prime’ on their tracks 😂
Well FUCK, that was not my intention 😝 Yay for family time though! Ummmm, no man.. I never heard ANYONE say that anywhere in the world let alone here in the UK 😂
Oooh this is a long hiatus! Did you realise you’d never rap as good as me so you threw in the towel?!
Hey, sorry it's taken me so long to respond! Thanks so much for all the comments and recommendations. It was really nice to read and I totally appreciate it! Hope you're doing well.
Thank you for your kind comments on my song, "Wash Me Clean"!
I fucking love Def Leppard and Avril Lavigne. What's that song by Avril...I'm With You? Just....fucking....sheer...perfection.
DL....ANIMAL! Love that song. Pyromania and Hysteria really defines a great part of that 80s sound. Mutt Lang and his production....top notch.
Ayyyyy I was reading up on rocktober and wanted to know if you would if I covered if god exists for it? Love that song dude. The hook is just perfect
I am not sure what you mean by "troll." Hopefully, you mean my penchant for asking questions and are not insulting appearance.
Beastie Boys is a really good example of Catchy Cheese. Love the Beastie Boys. Paul's Boutique is one of their best. Bone Thugs is just horrible bad music (sorry). I don't consider that cheese...i consider that....BAD lol. I can listen to your music over and over....Bone thugs, Linkin Park....no thanks!
I do Like Rage but not crazy about them. Pocket Full Of Shells would be my go to song from them.
Ok, you lost me after pumpkin 😝
thanks for your comments and listens! need to catch up on yours soon- its great that you've been creative, and keep on fightin' the good fight! 😀 best!
Thanks for the comments! I haven't heard of Dark 5 videos, so I'm going to have to check them out.
I would be up for a collab! Feel free to email me if you’ve got something in mind.
Hey, thanks for the mention and the comments! Glad you got to catch up. 😁 Definitely more to come!
Thanks man! ya, i've been putting in work lol. i'm goin for 29. lmk when you wanna make something together.
Ok I sent you my rap song 🙈 I always have to use mail drop rather than attaching to email cos my files are big so I hope you can get that to work?
I really enjoyed that you had to test gmail to make sure their system was up to sending and delivering emails 😀
Fuck I thought you’d never ask! Hahahah no I mean.. I’m not sure I can match your.. what is that you got? Energy! With my piddly lil acoustic guitar over here 😂 I mean, sure ok let’s do it, worst case scenario is it’s hilariously bad?? They can’t all be bangers eh! 😛 What are we doing, rapping?? I’m rifling through the ideas in my head and I’m not sure if any are gonna work.. Hmmmmmm, you got anything?!
Those are my burnt thighs, I don’t have pork chops for legs, jeez. Yes that was a minor fuck up of a url situation there but don’t worry about it, nothing happened!
I wrote it earlier but it’s too high for me to sing *facepalm*
Right.. well, that’s awkward. Thanks for letting me know.
Alright I'll check it out tonight when I have time to listen to it straight through! (Read: When the kids are asleep haha) And that's awesome dude before I ever was into rap, I was raised on rock so you ain't gonna get any complaints from me! I already love the title lmao, that's too good! Yeah I'll give it a listen and I'll come back here to give you some comments on it! (It is FAWM after all so might as well keep in the spirit of it). So yeah if you think you have time I'd love to get a sick beat from you. If you don't I totally understand and I can hit up FOE see if he's up for it. Doesn't matter to me, I go into FAWM with 0 expectations of anyone wanting to collab with me (even though my stuff at least to me seems a lot more mature than lets say when I was 17 and started FAWM ((God I feel old just saying that)) ). If every single thing I put out is lyrics only, then hey at least I am writing. Just let me know either way dude, writing that rap/diss track/whatever you wanna call it f
You are too kind sir, thank you for all the comments, I will catch up on your songs (Ive listened but not commented I've been very caught up in my creativity coming back after a few dead years of creativity.) I would absolutely love to collab with you. I dont know if you remember but you were my first ever collab if memory serves me correctly. (Actually I think my first 2! I had a spoken word piece and then "I just wanna maintain my garden... pardon?!) so if you got time for lil ol' me I'd love to!) And yeah I've had FOE watchlisted for years but thanks for turning me on to the other person too!)
Thank you for the comment! Realy appreciate that and yeah I didnt realize it, but you're right it definitely picks up momentum as it goes on and gets more complex/flows better. This is one of the few things I do really want to record, but I dont have a beat nor am I sure how the quality of my mic is. At some point whether its FAWM or post FAWM I'd love to record it. I haven't written something in the spur of the moment I've been so happy with in a long time so it's definitely a keeper for me, I just have to figure out the logistics of recording it! (I really should learn how to make beats huh?) I beyond appreciate your comments though, it means the world to me dude <3
So sir, I don't normally go fishing for comments or anything but I finally got back into writing some rap completely out of the blue and I wrote my first ever "Diss Track" and I was wondering if I could get your opinion on it? If not that's totally cool but when I think rap and FAWM I think of the resident rap god GSlade haha <3 It's called Well I Got News For Ya Kid 😀
Like.. in the ass dude.
*wonders what kind of set up you have over there where music only continues to play whilst you poor boiling water on your own thighs* That is a fancy ass studio man, I just got a notebook and iPad over here.
Oh.. but.. DID U DIG IT?!
Thanks man! i'm trying to make tracks with all the homies i make music with. my buddy code energy is a bad MF.
Hahah excellent, I like my weights plastic to the core so as not to get fatigued and so they do basically fuck all. I would estimate that I am 82% through finishing my next one. I would also wager it has 1 millionth the amount of ROCK that yours does! Can’t wait to dig it 😝
Thanks man! Idk if u checked out the track I did called Marco Polo but I feel like you'd dig it. Ur a witty writer. Can't wait to see what else u do this month
Thanks for the comments! I think the songwriting group generally liked "Only For A Minute"; they mainly suggested some lyric edits that I will work on after fawm.
My tone secret is simple - layering! I double every rhythm guitar part using two different amp sounds and pan each of them them hard left and right. Typically this is 2x the part with a Peavy 5150 left and right and then 2x with a Marshall JCM2000 also left and right so you get two tones in each ear that combine. I have a Kemper profiling amp, so it's super easy to dial in sounds, but you can do this with any sort of modelling software, or using two amps, or the same amp with different tone & gain settings.
Yassss a Gslade dig! That’s the only reason I’m making music at this point to be fair 😝 Did you buy that chair? I hope the weight session was good and they weren’t too heavy.
Ok woahhhh there, lets dial down those expectations yeah? I’m better at liner notes than songs 😝 Also, that chair is beautiful, you should buy that.
Hey thanks for the compliment on my vocals. People have asked me about using my green wall as a green screen a bunch of times haha! I haven't really explored video making/editing much (basically I just film, trim and post) so I don't use it, but it is in my mind for the future.
Yeah, man...I fudged up the freakin' file. I'm gonna fix that. By the way, me and my cuzzo are working on a track called Shaolin. I think you might be interested. But give me a few days because I'm trying to catch up with all my other collabs. Longer version is up now.
Ha, the fuck I am, I am always so exhausted post fawm I feel like I need half a year to recover! 50 in 90 is pushing it past the point of fun for me but I will surely check out yours, thanks 😁
Ha ha! Thanks for the encouragement - this week has been BRUTAL, but I finally got a new one up!
Hey no worries! I'm not really focusing on recording cause I still haven't taken the time to learn any instruments, but I could be persuaded to do vocals in a collab but that's about as much recording as I'd do this year. I'm just happy to be pumping out lyrics, last couple years of writing (in general, not just lyrics) has been very low output so this is a refreshing change of pace. (On top of keeping up with my "Write Something Every Day of 2020 challenge, which is just a lot of poetry and a couple microfiction so far) Can I just say again how awesome Tomb Raider is though? Heck of a song dude keep it up!
No worries - and thank you for the comment. You do realise that I will always think of quincunx as a Latin insult now... 😁
it's all good friend! glad to see you back again
i'd love to do a verse, send it on over. firstname.lastname@example.org i'll bring my sonic screwdriver in the booth with me.
if you're back in indy ever, let me know. i love the doctor who store lol we can make some music and get our nerd on.
in the other reality, you and i are watching shazam...the REAL one with sinbad.
Appreciate the feedback. i don't normally do vocals in the groups i play in, mostly just a writer/player, but its fun...so yeah. lol
you're on fire this year! (in a good way!) great to see ya here...
😂Yup, I got enough issues tryna write a song I’m happy with, I ain’t gonna start stressing over comments. Fuck that for a bag of bananas!
That's an interesting question! 😀 For me, art is -- usually the granular detail no one sees like the Bus about to run them over while staring straight at it, no less!
One of the best classes anyone might take, esp. at a college/university level, if means anything today, -- is Art 101, "What is Art?" There's libraries dedicated to the development of it, just like "Music Theory" which attempts to explain greatness, but does not compose it, or, so it would seem. 😀
-- Great stuff, love it!
Haha! Autocorrect strikes again lol. I might record a demo in future. Thanks for stopping and wow, The Gamechangers inspired you? How amazing.
