Influences:   All sorts, from classic to hard rock, via pop, punk, soul, reggae, ska, electronica, and almost everything.

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!


Unfortunately, my digital 12-track recorder still needs a replacement hard drive.

    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  2 weeks

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

  • @msculli1  2 weeks

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

  • @msculli1  3 weeks

    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  3 weeks

    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  3 weeks

    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  3 weeks

    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 3 weeks

    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  3 weeks

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

  • @jaegerin  4 weeks

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

  • @cindyrella  4 weeks

    Thanks for your nice comments!

  • @sph  4 weeks

    Wow, you've written a lot!

  • @kingwoodkowboy  4 weeks

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

  • @lastnightilie 4 weeks

    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  5 weeks

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

  • @writeandwrong  5 weeks

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

  • @kingwoodkowboy  5 weeks

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

  • @ustaknow 6 weeks

    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 6 weeks

    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  6 weeks

    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  6 weeks

    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  6 weeks

    Aww. Thank you, Martin. πŸ˜€

  • @srcoops  7 weeks

    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.

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

  • @chariotbaldwin  7 weeks

    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 ??

  • @dreamscuba  8 weeks

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

  • @rickatfulcrum 8 weeks

    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 28

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