Former musician a LONG time ago. Retired now and dabble. UPDATE FOR 2018!! I have an album out now--all proceeds go to KIVA.org to provide microloans for educating women in developing countries. Available at iTunes, Amazon, and at CdBaby here: https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/jerrypettit2
Update for 2019: I'll be putting out my 3rd album (pop) shortly after FAWM 2019 closes, and a 4th (country) album later this year. Going to try and do about half my usual "country" fare this time around and half R&B. FAWM has been life-changing! Good luck to all!
Thanks for the kind comments on my song. It sounds like you are productively engaged in a second career as a crooner and drinking Manhattan's alone (and occasionally with others I'm sure).
Thanks Jerry! We were going for late 70s/early 80s vibes 😉 glad you enjoyed. Happy FAWMING ❤️
Thanks for giving my Homeward a listen.
Thanks Terry I appreciate your kind words! I also try 3-4 minutes for length but sometimes the best line is the last line which becomes the only line that matters(first line in the hook)- but as you know the final three minutes will find you two years later postFAWM!
Thank you. I use VST´s from a big pack of 1500 different kinds 😀
Thanks, Jerry! I have some listening to do!
I appreciate that, Jerry (on You Brought Me In)!
The sub bass you ask about is a combo of two different sounds - an 808 and another deep synth bass with a long release and built-in filters.
Hey Jerry, thanks for your comment on Great Beauty. The coarses I'm taking online are through a site called Sync Academy. You can find out more and see some free content through their YouTube channel called Sync My Music.
Ironic really as i am usually the gloomy writer! Thx for comments
Haha thanks I will come depending on when you guys dump that orange dude and we'll ofc depending on what you replace him with 😀
thanks for the listen, ha yes a video would take some thinking of how to do that! maybe the eyes up thing for the camera 😉 ? btw the drums are midi loops and i played just one electric guitar part (which i put on 2 tracks with different effects on each) and fretless bass guitar part - thanks for asking 😀
Hello Jerry, thanks for the comment, I was wondering where you were, good to see you've got your first song done.
HI Mate you missed at the start when i said i was going away today for 3 months. Been trying to get as many as i can before i go. 2 are lyrics only 6 were skirmishes. I have been flat out writing since the clock ticked over I have about 10 more part written but may not get any chance to post.. Might get some lyrics done and will certainly be listening and commenting when i can! wondered where you were there - ill be listening to all yours mate!
Thank you for your kind words. It's always nice to see you around to.
Hello Jerry, all these plans sound exciting, have a good fawm, I expect I'll bump into you around the place a few times.
Hope to hear more songs from you this year Jerry , Have great FAWM,
