LET THE FUN BEGIN!!!!
Unfortunately, my digital 12-track recorder still needs a replacement hard drive.
I'm finally catching up on all of the overdue thank you notes for having stopped to consider my song Sweet Louise. I take all comments to heart and truly appreciate everyone's comments. All the love.
Listening back to our episode. Did you ever check out Fever 333 ?
Hi, Martin! Hope you have a wonderful FAWM!
I'm glad you loved the lyrics. The song was written as a waltz and I hope to work out my recording issues so I can make a better recording. The guitar gets totally lost. I'm going to see if I can find something that allows me to plug in a mic if I can't get my laptop to do the job right.
I know you work those long hours for sure. My son is like that as well, night shift, overtime, weekend hours.
I have a number of friends who have beautiful relationships that did not begin when they were young and love to pay tribute to them and the way they care about and respect each other. It's a beautiful thing that doesn't get the kind of recognition that I wish it did. I love the way you always pay tribute to Louise and how she always shows her love for you by making wonderful things for you to enjoy.
Being your friend on fb made it easy to pull that together with your love of music to create this old-fashioned love song. I was hoping you wouldn't mind. I didn't call you out in the notes, but now that you have commented, a few late comers might realize it's about you two.
Oh, and I worked swing shift for a number of years, as did my then husband, so I completely understand what it's like managing through that.
Hi. I just posted a very choppy mp3 that I hope you will like. 😀 Any resemblance to someone you know is completely intentional.
Hiya!!! That list of instruments is impressive. I have to sell my 3 guitars in order to be allowed to have my 4th one. At least I still have my FAWM shakers, bongo drum and a new digital piano keyboard. Of course, none of this will be recorded, unless I get a weird moment in doing an instrumental of sorts. Good luck for 2021
Hahahaha! Happy new FAWM!
Hey buddy! Good to see your back for more FAWM goodness!
Hi Martin!! Happy FAWMing!!
Hey, Martin! Best wishes to you for a fantastic FAWM 2021!! 🎵
