Thank you, my friend. I'll look forward to anything you can add. And of course to lend an keen ear in return to anything you need me too 😀
I've uploaded our new version of "Wrench in the works". Thanks a lot for your recordings. Feel free to modify the song info. Let's see what people comment.
Thank you for your comments on Retrospective. Much appreciated.
Thanks so much for listening and to be honest, your phone might be on to something... I mean my Chuck Taylors are pretty awesome! 🤣😂
I’ll be digging in a bit here - I miss so many songs here in FAWM no matter how much I comment.
Reading below, Pete’s method sounds just like mine. Random hand placement on whatever instruments and no idea about the chords.
As far as shows, in Treading Bleu we only switched up once when Ron and I both played acoustic guitar in a song Rob wrote. Rob and I switched off guitar and drums in his old band at one show that I joined and that was fun. Shows... sigh... I remember those.
Thank you so much for the kind words. I really appreciate the time you took to listen to my songs this year! xo
Thank you so much, I am looking forward to it 😁
You don't have to mix the stems. Only if you want to show a quick result to me and Brian. I'd like to learn how to process drum recordings because I never done that before. Is it OK for you to talk about interim mixing results in the mails? I'd like to improve.
Have we already exchanged our mail addresses?
Hi Chad, thanks so much. Yeah, I'd be up for collaborating on something at some point. I'm working at a slower rate these days (I released an average of 7 albums per year between 2017 and 2020, but I haven't released anything since mid last year), but happy to give something a go.
And thanks for the recent comments. Being honest, I only have a very basic grasp of theory, and I do most things by ear, so I don't have much of a clue about the chromatic neighbour tones and the other stuff you mentioned. If you saw how I compose music, you'd probably laugh 😄 ... pretty much all of my songs start with me dropping my hands randomly onto the keyboard, and wherever they land usually forms the basis for a song. I couldn't tell you most of the chords or notes I use.
I listened to "Just Two" once again. I expected some strings around 1:30. Maybe bowed work better here. Now I understood that the part of the pizzicato section is played by a guitar. I like that idea but somehow I haven't heard it yesterday.
Thanks for commenting on "Going my way". I am looking forward to that project. Already heard @jamkar's first vocal take on it and that sounds really awesome. It will take a while until everything is recorded and finished but this song will be on SoundCloud for sure. I hope I find a guitarist to finish and produce it as full band recording.
Appreciate you dropping by!
So kind of you to take time to comment on our song. I’m really grateful for your feedback. 😀
Thank you! Take your time with recording. I won't finish any song in February or March. I'll mark you as collab later. Happy FAWMing!
Hey! Do you have everything you need for our collab in "Wrench in the works "? Just asking 😀 Looking forward to the recordings.
Is it OK for you to tag you as collab after the recordings are done? I do not care so much about reaching the 14 songs.
Love your arrangement suggestions for Queen of Clubs. Yeah...why not go big! Thanks for dropping by for a listen.
Also thanks for the comments on "Promise". While writing the chord sheets down, I was astonnished that it has been so short! The past songs were about 2-3 pages long. I like this song beeing catchy. Let'S see how it works out.
Thanks for your comment on pyromancer! I think we'll get this one finished this year. Today I've uploaded a new version with some vocals. The recording and mixing will be tough, but I'm looking forward to it!
Hello Chad! I apologise for not getting back to you sooner, but I wanted to say thank you so much for the kind words and the Bandcamp fabulousness. It's very nice of you, and much appreciated. I need to check out more of your music, and I will do soon. Thank you.
Thanks for the comment! I actually find the video means I work quicker - voice and guitar live and no ( or very few ) overdubs means I can be less of a perfectionist
You're welcome. Take your time for the recording. I think I will be maxed out during FAWM. Answering all these comments, writing mails, preparing chord sheets and stuff takes lot of time. I'm happy to write new songs in the evening... if I have some ideas though. Maybe I'll mix and master the first FAWM songs during april. Don't worry - I will let my music here until it is recorded.
Thank you very much for the nice comment on You Fucked Me Up! Glad to hear you liked it!
Wow...thank you for your kind comments on As the House Burns Down. That collab was truly a match made in heaven. I'm glad you enjoyed listening to it. I sure loved recording it!
Hey thanks, man. Sure! Go for it. I really do write with eventually having a singer do their thing. Cheers!
Thanks for your nice comment and your collaoration offer! Since I cannot find your e-mail here, I'll write you on soundcloud fo the details.
Thanks for your kind words about my song Gear Acquisition Syndrome. I did put music to it.
