I have a vast array of musical instruments - acoustic guitars, classical guitar, electric guitars, travel acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, electric 4 and 5-string basses, soprano ukulele, baritone ukulele, tenor ukulele, mandolins, tambura, sarod, electric harmonium, pianorgan, electronic keyboard, bongos, tambourines, maracas, egg shakers (including FAWM ones), cowbell, triangle, xylophone, marimba, castanets, guiro, zither, didgeridoo, stylophone, melodica, harmonicas (lots of them, both chromatic and non-chromatic), tin whistles, soprano recorders, bass recorder, magic flute, Chinese Bamboo Flute, and more that I can't remember!

    Just letting you know that DD has recorded the Teddy Bears Trip On Acid song πŸ˜€

  • @paiyatamu  Mar 15

    Thanks for you comments on "Time is a Thief." Here's the direct link to the YouTube video for "Black Tie Affair."

    It's working for me both embedded in FAWM and at YouTube. I'd appreciate you feedback. Thanks!

  • @msculli1  Mar 9

    Oh and thanks for the comment on Let Them Know, it is as I've said before, much appreciated.

  • @msculli1  Mar 9

    Hi Martin, sorry I kinda remember asking you before now. If your brother has it covered then best leave it to him. Cheers.

  • @msculli1  Mar 4

    If you let me know what type of recorder you have I could point you in the right direction, how to change, where to find, the hard drive. It shouldn't be too hard a job. I know that's easy for me to say, 'cos it's what I do, but it is usually only a few screws.

  • @msculli1  Mar 4

    Hi Martin, thanks for the comment on Hollow. It is much appreciated.

    I agree, it would benefit from having something on top. I have no ideas, so if you have time and would like to doodle over it, that would be cool.

  • @complexissimple  Mar 3

    Well, it's not very easy for me to add instrumentation to things, so I wouldn't mind a little help with that. Otherwise it's likely to be a very long time where all I have is lyrics and a melody.

  • @complexissimple  Mar 3

    You asked about collaborating on my song "Paint". I actually have a melody for that one, I just have no way to post or send recordings right now! If I can get my computer assembled within the next week, I might be able to do that before flying across the country for my brother's thesis defense. If you're *really* itching to set it to music in a hurry, though, you might as well, just know that it probably won't mesh with what I already had in mind for the song.

  • @ajna1960 Mar 1

    Thanks Marvy πŸ˜€ I did actually write 14 lyrics inside the last day. To be honest I was only trying to hit the 14, but then found I couldn't stop until my time ran out ! I went to bed around 2.30am on the 29th when my eyes were too painful to see properly, and then started writing again when I woke at 8.30am the same day ! Stopped at 11.55am πŸ˜€

  • @sw1n3flu  Feb 29

    Yo - Shall I put a locked song up for the tape? Not had anything in the mail yet!

  • @jaegerin  Feb 28

    Hi Martin, and thanks for your lovely comment on my "Starlings" song. Glad you liked it.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 27

    Thanks for your nice comments!

  • @sph  Feb 27

    Wow, you've written a lot!

  • @kingwoodkowboy  Feb 26

    marv, thanks for reviewing "This Ordinary Simple Man".

  • @lastnightilie Feb 23

    Hey just realized I never heard back from you about our collab! Probably should have followed up sooner since Feb is almost over now. Did you ever get my email where I sent you music to write lyrics to?

  • @kingwoodkowboy  Feb 22

    marv, thanks for reviewing "Young Johnny Ringo". Who said history isn't fun (to write about).

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 20

    Thank you for your kind comments on "Soldier's Battle" πŸ˜€

  • @kingwoodkowboy  Feb 20

    marv, thanks for reviewing "Sundial In The Dark".

  • @ustaknow Feb 15

    If no trouble, send the link to your Newark song! Hahhh... yes, actually the NJ city was a major hub at one time.

    I with family had high hopes for ours, as long ago as the mid-1980's we got heavily involved in it's "urban rejouvination". We did OK, the city didn't. Man, it's a rough place, most folks have no idea, -- and "i" was the token "White Dude" which they loved..., so was somewhat watched out for, if that's possible... as I stepped over and crushed the crack-viles on my front steps every morning to alt-side park my unlocked car (not get towed, all the way to the Airport no less!), with the glove box always open, no radio... and etc. πŸ˜€ fun times, fun times!

  • @ustaknow Feb 15

    Hey, thank you for the heads up.

    I am challenged to understand things on FAWM on occassion, was that just a head up, or you wanted more on that as it may seem to fit?

    Either way, anyway, -- thanks for the heads up. I used to live in Newark, but NJ, does that count? (Probably not as nice as your Newark... πŸ˜€ )

  • @owl  Feb 12

    Ah, great, glad it didn't cause trouble in the end! I tried to get the level balanced when recording. It turned out a little harder to do that with the 4-tracks because I had to use a dynamic mic instead of the condenser I usually use, due to the lack of phantom power on the 4-track I was borrowing from Nancy.

  • @owl  Feb 12

    Thanks for doing all the mixing, and I'm glad you liked my track! It's great to hear it finished, all the components sound great and I think the glockenspiel was the perfect addition! Did you ever manage to separate the vox and guitar out with a plugin (wasn't sure what the issue was, just to bring them in/out at different times? raise the level of one?)

  • @dragondreams  Feb 9

    Aww. Thank you, Martin. πŸ˜€

  • @srcoops  Feb 3

    Thanks for your kind comments. I am writing to keep my mind off the loss of Tom, my oldest son. BTW I was born in Newark, Ohio, USA about 84 years ago.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2

    Hi Martin! Thanks a lot for your kind comment! Great to see you here again!

  • @chariotbaldwin  Feb 2

    Hey dude - looking forward to your instrumentals, would love to do a collab this year if you're game - send me a theme/ concept idea and I'll write the words if you come up with the music ??

  • @dutch1967 Feb 2020

    Looking forward to your songs Marv! I might just join the 4trk Challenge this year....

  • @mosley  Jan 2020

    Hey Martin!!

  • @pipewrench67  Jan 2020


  • @dreamscuba  Jan 2020

    Good luck with FAWM 2020. ... Looking forward to the jam at Castle Dragondreams.

  • @rickatfulcrum Jan 2020

    I expect you to use EVERY. LAST. ONE. Of those instruments in each and every song you post here. I'll be listening and I'll notice if one is off missing.

    Nah not really, I trust your discretion. I'll still be listening though.

  • @peternh Jan 2020

    Thanks for the welcome message, and yes, I'm looking forward to my first FAWM, thanks to the influence of @tamsnumber4 and @mikeb.

  • @pearlmanhattan  Jan 2020

    Hey there, happy FAWM

  • @nancyrost  Jan 2020

    Looking forward to the tapes -- and the one from 5090. πŸ˜‰

  • @petemurphy Jan 2020

    Hiya Martin! Yeah, I'm doing... ok, thank you. I hope all is well with you and Louise. Hope you have loads of FAWM fun, too.

  • @tamsnumber4  Jan 2020

    Hi Martin!! Have a great FAWM!!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 2020

    Doing well except for a couple mental hangups which too shall pass. Mainly just want to get done with the insurance stuff and move on with life!

  • @cts  Jan 2020

    My man!! You in? Be in!

  • @headfirstonly  Jan 2020

    Hi Martin! All set for an epic Leap FAWM? Let's do this!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 2020

    Mr Smooth! Looking forward to another FAWM with you!

  • @johnstaples  Jan 2020
