You're welcome! I hope you had a wonderful Easter. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
No hurries. We're still not done with the instrumental of "Going my way". As two of my songs are close to be finished it can happen that I postpone the release to June. Otherwise there would be too many cool songs at the same time 😎.
I'm looking forward to your stems. We'll rock this one!
Hey Michael, I hope you're doing fine! I just came here to with Happy Easter and to say, that "Fight for you" has turned into a final version including vocals. Feel free to listen.
Thanks for the comment on "Butterfly Effect", I can't say I see the Who comparison, but I'll take it.
Good luck, Mike.
Thank YOU for another great crossing of paths. Gotta be a dozen years now. Be safe and well till we meet again at the Summer Songhunt in July! Hugs, my friend.
Thank you for the kind words about my songs. It's appreciated.
Thank you Michael, I added you.
Thanks for your comment on "Fight for you". I am also looking forward to the lyrics and vocals. Still don't have the slightest idea what will come 😀
Thanks so much Jamkar for your observations on "Invocation" I'm so glad you stopped by for a listen!
Thanks for visiting!
Thanks so much for the comment, calling my lyrics fanciful! And yes, there must be caffeine, I can't trust what's written on the can 😉
No problem! that was really well done. I keep meaning to get to some of your others as well. I'll get there eventually 😁
It was fun to watch and pick out the gear I recognized. You guys really did a top-notch job!
Thank you for your lovely comment on “Wolf Song”!
Wow this is fabulous!!!!
You nailed that vocal...I love 💗 it!!
What a cool afternoon surprise!!!
Hey thanks for your visit..
You can Def give a stab at lyrics for my Doors Closing Forever..
That would be outta sight.
Peace and 💕 love man...
Hey, I might have to postpone our collab, since it didn't really get started yet. People have been sending me stuff for collabs like crazy. Hopefully, we'll have time to do it, but I'm just writing to let you know, that it's gonna be tight. 😁
Next to Lake Murray which is a hidden little gem of a lake just north of the TX State line I'm sure you're familiar with being from the area. That's my favorite lake for Crappie fishing! Beautifully clean lake makes for really tasty fish! and most people throw those back. They're in it for the big trophy bass 😁 I haven't been there in some years, but it was surprisingly uncrowded as well being so close to Dallas.
lovely hand raising. lets see what we can do. Woohoo
Hi Mike, and thank you for your kind words on my opening song. I love your soundboard message! Such a great way to frame what can happen when we do this.
Tim is doing pink shoes, but I'm always happy to have different versions. I'm ok with it as it. Lmk
Thank you for the comment. I'm sorry to hear about what you've been through. But I appreciate you stopping by.
i only saw sonny rollins once, in seattle 1996 ,,,,,moore theatre
Hi! I'm looking forward to seeing what we come up with! I'm going to work on some lyrics and email you some stuff!
Hey, just checking if you received my wetransfer email from friday.
Hey, I just sent you an e-mail.
Note the year '74, 4 years before Carpenter's Halloween, then note the similarities....
If you haven't seen or heard of it b4 I hope you enjoy!
Thanks for your kind words about my #2. Finishing my 3rd now will be doing some listening tomorrow.
Mike I was looking for you this afternoon I almost sent you a message on Famousbook, good to hear from you hope you are wellthanks for the listen
Thanks for your encouraging post...much appreciated...
Watched the last man, turns out I'd seen it before decades ago in italian, in italy, and remembered much about it but that Vincent Price was in it. Enjoyed the tip/reminder. Thanks. Got one for you, not sure if you like horror genre but I've got an absolute underappreciated closet classic to recommend, or perhaps remind you of, from 74 if you're interested. Let me know.
Thanks for the welcome. Great to see you and may the muse be with you!
Oh, fantastic. I dropped you a private message there. 😀
Heyy! Are you by chance in the fawm slack? I really hope this collab works out, but I have no idea yet, haha. Bard Cards gave me "Street" as prompt, so we can run with that or not, depending on how you feel.
Thank you so much for your lovely comment on “Fall Gently”. Happy FAWMing!
Hey! Happy FAWM dear friend.
Hello, my old friend! I hope you are fine... Have a wonderful FAWM!
Hi Mike - Likewise! Have a great FAWM this year!
Last week we had an inch or two for a couple of days. Just enough for kids in Helsinki to have fun. It's almost all gone now. Only sleet and cold rain are left. Darn you, climate change! 😀
Hey Mike, good to see you back for more!
Hi Mike. Thanks for the message. How's the winter weather in Gainsville, Texas? Do you have snow there at all?
Hiya Mike! I hope all is well with you. Wishing you a productive FAWM.
Hi Mike, thank you, likewise.
Oh yes. Lets get it on indeed. Let the noise commence 😉
Welcome back to this madness! I am so looking forward to it and look forward to your creations!
😁 I left that behind somewhere already
Thanks for the welcome! Hopefully we'll make some music.
And a happy FAWM to you as well! 😀
Happy FAWM to you, my friend!
Regarding the 4 people video challenge.
What would you prefer, making a plan or leave it at random?
Random worked out fine in the past with the 4 track challenges, it was as simple as just adding your part to what you received on tape from the others. The first could have played a drum part or maybe chords plus voice and it was up to the next in line to add whatever they considered suitable. But if one of us already has some lyrics or chords or a general idea for a style I’m totally okay with that too. I agree with @guatecoop that we should continue this via email so I will ask @roddy for his address again.
Have a great fawm 😀 was fun collabing last year!
Hello friend!! Looking forward to your creations!!
I was kinda guessing that I’d be doing the drums. Maybe not, but I’m fine with that. We will have to figure out style and such. The only problem is that at least one doesn’t have an email listed. We shall see, but I’m excited
Hey there! Just checking in to say hello and also get us talking about our plans for the video collab. @roddy , @jamkar, @alboe, and @guatecoop are our team. I play drums, guitar, bass, and keyboards, so I don’t really care where I fit into the plan. Let me know what you think. Best wishes to you!
Looking forward to listening again 😀
Hi, Mike! Have a fantastic FAWM 2021!! 🎹🎵
