  • @billwhite51 Mar 10

    thank you jamkar, for encouraging me to stay as i am..or to continue in the way i am becoming. ive had two major opportunities to change and resisted each one.

  • @ferry0123  Mar 8

    Hey Mike, thanks for your visit to my personal favorite and your kind words!

  • @audrey  Mar 5

    Thank you for the kind words about my song Don't Get Caught. Much appreciated.

  • @ttg105  Mar 3

    Thanks for the MFP comment ... I had never heard of Jimmy Spheeris, so I checked him out. "I am the Mercury" is the exact sound I'm shooting for! Alternate tunings, dreamy vocals, etc. Thanks!

  • @djevans53 Mar 1

    Thanks so much for commenting on Two Rivers Too Cross.

  • @thefuneralcrasher  Mar 1

    You're more than welcome...looks like you had a great month! Thank you for returning the favour πŸ˜€

  • @cicpisces Mar 1

    @jamkar thanks for finishing Lazy Lizzard. Sounds great. Well done. Nice way to finish FAWM.

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 29

    Thanks for listening to my collab song "Who We Really Are"!

  • @billysea  Feb 27

    Good morning. Thanks for stopping by and listening to my late entries into the FAWM 2020 fun πŸ˜€

  • @cicpisces Feb 25

    @jamkar Hi we're paired in the collab. I have several unused lyrics if you want to pick one.
    Or I can write something fresh.

  • @barbara  Feb 23

    That would be so cool! Go to town with whatever pleases you.

  • @barbara  Feb 23

    Hi Mike! Yes, by all means and thank you. I’m eager to see what you will make from them. I know my phrasing is little different from what might be usual, and what I’ve fit in there might not seem to scan to others, so you can adjust if needed.

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 23

    Mike - I'm conscious that I haven't been by to give your stuff a listen recently. I will remedy that!

  • @billwhite51 Feb 23

    thats good enough reason for david goodis

  • @scubed  Feb 22

    Thanks so much for your kind comment on β€œThe Hummingbirds Return”! All those major 7th chords do give it a 70s vibe, don’t they? I didn’t remember β€œMagnolia” until I went back to listen, but it is indeed a lovely, lovely song.

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 21

    Ha ha the wonders of being back in my little studio instead of being in a hammock πŸ˜‰

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 21

    Thank you so much for the comment on my and cynthia's collab and i will take it as a massive compliment that you think my vocals sound like Cynthia singing πŸ˜‰ . Its ok i am rather feminine with my vocality on occassions πŸ˜‰ Still can't spell though!!

  • @jorh  Feb 21

    Yes definitely πŸ˜€

  • @jorh  Feb 20

    I know but it works so well with the message of the lyric, I love them unexpected touches sometimes πŸ˜€ the whole thing sounds great tho, really like what you’ve done with it!!

  • @jorh  Feb 20

    Thanks for setting what do you do to music. It sounds really great!! Love how you lingered on the β€˜do’s like a cry for help, and your voice sounded fab! The crackle in the recording also added character, almost like the vocal was muffled from water πŸ˜€

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 17

    It was a pleasure Mike.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 17

    Thank you so much for that gorgeous version of my lyrics <3 wonderfull

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 17

    Thank you for your kind comments on my song, "Wash Me Clean"!

  • @kristi  Feb 16

    Mike, I would be very happy to have you add music to my "million" lyric!

  • @barbara  Feb 15

    !! Thank you for that wonderful comment, Mike.

  • @jorh  Feb 15

    Glad you liked the song - I was secretly hoping this one would get music so it would be an honour. You have a great voice and sense of melody so I know it’s in good hands. Also I’m always happy for people to tweak my words / add personal touches as that’s what collaborating is all about πŸ˜€

  • @gerrybhoy  Feb 13

    Hi Mike thank for the kind comments. Good luck.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 13

    You are very welcome to do so <3

    thanks for commenting on santo cello. it was fun to record, though a bit frustrating, with computer problems.
    keep having fun!

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 7

    Thank you for tour kind Words in mine and Cindys collab

  • @dragondreams  Feb 6

    Aww. Thank you so much, Mike. 😊

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 3

    Hi there! Thanks so much for your comment on When the Night Falls. If you'd like to work out some keys to add, you can email me at aesthetic.seventytwo@gmail.com. Cheers!

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 2

    Thank you Mike. Sadly not Roland. I'm afraid one of my students pushed it down by mistake and not right away but soon after that 8 notes stopped playing. I have a tiny keyboard Akai MPK mini which I then adjust via fl studio tweaking the sounds and sometimes adding the notes in other octaves as it has a tiny range of notes from C3 till C5. It does have some pads but I prefer using the notes. The keys are tiny. Anyway, it is fun to create music with it and of course from time to time I use my trusty upright piano. Thank you for your support.

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 2

    Thank you Mike πŸ˜€

  • @wolfkier Feb 2


  • @emkaydeebee  Feb 2

    Thanks for commenting, much appreciated! It was particularly short, but a real life typical delivery would have taken hours πŸ˜‚

    Hi Mike! Ready for another Leap FAWM?

  • @downburst  Jan 17

    Wishing you the same, Mike! A tailor-made, custom version of FAWM for this year’s you! 😊

  • @writeandwrong  Jan 16

    Bring on the FAWM!! WHooohOOooO! Have a great one, Mike! πŸ˜€

  • @tiller2  Jan 16

    Thanks, my friend. Turned out I had nasal/sinus polyps, which I had removed endoscopically last fall. Hoping they won't come back; things are good now.

  • @tiller2  Jan 15

    Welcome back, Jamkar. And please accept my apology for disappearing from 50/90 without recording the vocal for you and Maddie. I was getting recurrent sinus infections that affected my voice. But I should have let you know. Sorry.

  • @tsunamidaily  Jan 14

    have the best FAWM this year!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 13

    Yes! That January feeling of an approaching FAWM...
