    Hey Mr Doof-Doof, congrats you hit the 14 up - although I would've liked to hear the operatic-speedmetal-polka for real

  • @keithcuts  Mar 2

    Mdavisto! Hey good to hear from you. Your points and observations are always on point. And of course you have the body of work to back it all up. Nice!
    Im going to take some of the songs this Month and get them ready for streaming (Spotify etc). I will be incorporating some of your feedback most notably the double tracking in sections by recording a second take. I’m excited to try it πŸ‘.
    If I could stick some soggy reverb on this comment I would

  • @paulhenry  Feb 26

    Thanks for the kind words on my soundboard. I've made my cheaters 14, that is, getting an extra bump from lyrics-only, plus the collab on the lyric. Otherwise, I wouldn't be close. I may try one more collab before Saturday but I'm feeling so done at the moment, don't even have enough inspiration to put en o h let rs t geth r t m k s nc .

  • @mcfunkypants Feb 24

    You always blow my mind with your amazing work each year! Never stop being the wonderful and supportive musical genius you are!

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 22

    Thanks so much for your comment on my collab with Nancy. Yes, this song is much jollier but I still stand by my decision to rhyme umbilical hernia, two years ago! πŸ˜‹

  • @leepat  Feb 21

    And yes, it must be the delay thing, thx for the explanation!

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Feb 21

    Thanks for saying nice things about my voice. I'm still finding it...

  • @keithcuts  Feb 21

    Lol the reverb comment πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
    Yeah let me try doubling today. I’ll be writing again. So for doubling just duplicate the vocal? Or do I need to offset the duplicate a few milliseconds? Or pan right and pan left? Any suggestions or a link to video tutorial is appreciated thanks!

  • @leepat  Feb 21

    Yes! Strings and maybe even double bass. Let's do this!

  • @keithcuts  Feb 21

    Ya man thanks for the production tips. From You I’ll take it! 🎢πŸ’ͺ🏼

  • @aneil Feb 21

    Nice to find another safer in the dark again πŸ™ˆ load shedding sure could be a Fawm challenge

  • @aneil Feb 21

  • @looprication  Feb 18

    Hey I'll take production tips from you any time! Thanks!

  • @katmtl Feb 16

    Hello! Thank you for the awesome comment on β€œNaughty”! I appreciate you listening to my Fawm songs! I’m soooo glad that my song transformed you!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β€οΈβ€οΈ

  • @splittybooms  Feb 16

    Always shoulder pads.

  • @victoriavox  Feb 14

    hey David πŸ˜‰ thanks for your note and comments! I'm always around doing stuff. Maybe not on FAWM every every year πŸ˜€ My tunes are set for listening only (via Fawmers). They are (purposefully) not for download or for the public. I hope you can respect my wish for my creative space, and not rip it. Thanks! V

  • @judypie  Feb 14

    Ha, but you're our key demographic! 😝

  • @judypie  Feb 14

    Ah man, that’s all a bit Greek to me but I’ll tell Pete to sort our shit out! Losing us listeners, tsk!

  • @judypie  Feb 13

    Waaaaat! Works fine over here man!

  • @paulhenry  Feb 13

    Extraneous post. I meant to put something under your collab with @mikedebenham, but posted here instead. Well, I put my comment in the proper place, but couldn't delete this one, so I'm just editing it. So....

    Have a nice day?

  • @darcistrutt  Feb 12

    Thanks for listening again! It is hard but I tried to keep the song light. I'm hoping to get another silly song out there soon - maybe a storycube. It helps to mix in the silly with the somber.

  • @brownium  Feb 12

    Plus, now I just read about how you and @sciren bonded over Firefly, which is indeed the greatest TV show ever made.

  • @kadmad202  Feb 8

    Hi David! Thanks for such nice words about We're All in This Together. I guess all composers are influenced by the music they hear, knowingly or otherwise. I can't listen to John Williams or some Star Trek themes without hearing Gustav Holst. I, too, was (and am) a folkie. I guess some of it was bound to rub off! Thanks again.

  • @oddbod  Feb 7

    Hi mate, bit of a long shot but you commented on someone's song that it was "region locked" and wouldn't play for you -any idea what it was?
    I started playing it but it suddenly stopped and my browser automatically shifted on to another song so I lost who it was.

  • @delwoodworks  Feb 7

    Thanks for your comments. I love the vibe of your songs. Particularly like the tune with the string intro. What do you use for your string sounds...or are you playing that live?

  • @majordanby  Feb 6

    Haha! Why yes, yes I would. It’s 2 over zero here right now. It sucks!
    πŸ˜‰

  • @chriddof Feb 6

    Thank you for the comment! I'd accept that award gladly. In all seriousness, I find the longer my titles are, the better they turn out...

  • @judypie  Feb 6

    YES. Oodles. Well done on cracking our secret code. Coming to a remix near you soon β€œGod is a dick! I’m gonna lick your maker”?!? I’ll work on the lyric..

  • @judypie  Feb 6

    Hahah thank you! It is awesome fun yes, sadly @iwilleatyou is really old so may not have many years left in him dammit. But until then, we roll on!

  • @oddbod  Feb 6

    Thanks David, it's good to know the drums sound okay/real. They're XLN Audio Addictive Drums (Fairfax 1 kit to be precise).
    I'll get round to listening/commenting on your latest sometime today.

  • @darcistrutt  Feb 6

    You made me blush! I’m glad to be on this FAWM journey with you!

  • @leah0k  Feb 5

    Yes! I totally agree. The keyboard is too harsh for a slow simple song. I love the warm sound of a real piano... alas... my piano is upstairs and so is all the noise in my house haha. I’ll have to play around with some settings on my workstation and see if I can warm up the keyboard. Thank you for your kind words and input!!

  • @gardeningangel1  Feb 3

    Glad you caught the Serenity/ Firefly reference! I still mourn the unmade 2nd season.

  • @notenkraker Feb 3

    The summer is radiating in Wanderlust!

  • @adforperu  Feb 3

    Ahhhhh good memory! I don't think I even knew what transients were until you mentioned them in that comment (and which I'd forgotten who said it until now!).

  • @majordanby  Feb 3

    Haha! I thought I’d leave it up to the listener to decipher. Could be any number of things; although I was thinking something more naughty or sordid. I’m glad your mind didn’t go there πŸ˜‰

  • @lisamarie777 Feb 3

    Haha! I loved your comment about my yoga trip song. I actually love metal despite being a snarky folkie type, but just haven't written in the metal genre. I definitely need to go on a better road trip.

  • @kovbleu  Feb 3

    Whoa, thank you so much for all of your kind comments on my songs. I sincerely appreciate them. πŸ˜€ I go wherever they take me so it's always a mixed bag. <3

  • @effigee  Feb 3

    Hey thanks so much for the feedback and welcome! Such great advice too..if I spend this much time on all 14 songs I’m gonna have to start calling in sick to work haha. Progress not perfection, ahoy!!

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 3

    Thank you for your kind woords on my beard song <3

  • @leah0k  Feb 2

    Well thanks! And also for you 😁

  • @mitchmash  Feb 1

    Hey there - I'm here, hope you are here too - because I LOVE hearing what you come up with! Onward! πŸ˜€

  • @luke0zade Feb 1

    Make things. Let's even accidentally make things together.

    That would be really nice.

    I like nice things.

    You're nice.

  • @darcistrutt  Feb 2020

    Looking forward to sharing the month with you!

  • @ray07 Feb 2020

    Hi Dave - thanks for the inspiration... here we go with the stringed box... I suddenly feel vulnerable. Ray

  • @elesimo  Jan 2020

    Hi, David! Have a great FAWM!

  • @haim  Jan 2020

    Thanks ! Have a lovely fawm as well! It's crazy. it starts tomorrow... LOL.

  • @sayda Jan 2020

    Hey, looking forward to hearing your stuff again!

  • @jamesstaubes  Jan 2020

    Dude are you back?!

  • @sciren  Jan 2020

    Are YOU ready?! You already know I'm not.

  • @mikedebenham  Jan 2020

    Hooray! You're back. Bit of an elaborate stunt you pulled last year to avoid collaborating with me. (Hope all's well.)

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2020

    Retired, ha...ref elections, I think is very special too. But immediate government problem--the fire issue is in the hands of the States, not the Feds, and that's a very different kettle of rotten fish 😞

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2020

    Ha! Who needs a mental breakdown to avoid generating many songs, when you have two flats to renovate 320km away from home base, multiple reports and letters to write trying to convince politicians to take action before the next bushfire wipes out your daughter's town and business, and multiple threats of legal action in attempts to intimidate! And I thought retirement would allow more music time....

  • @roxya  Jan 2020

    Hi dude. Gonna have a stab at FAWM again this year. Hoping to see you around as well.

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 2020

    Hoping to see you back this year, have a great FAWM!

  • @brownium  Jan 2020

    Yo dude! Looking forward to hearing your music again this year.

    Still haven't worked out my journey to visit you, but my father-in-law is taking my son to SA in October, so part of me is part way there. πŸ˜€

    Peace and Prosperous Fawming!

  • @looprication  Jan 2020

    Great to see you back! I could have sworn I had the other half of masslove on my watchlist but I can't find her? Help me out?

    Happy FAWM!

  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 2020

    Hope to see you back this year!

  • @kovbleu  Jan 2020

    Hope you're back for the turn of the decade and another go at this. I have thought of you throughout the year and hoped you were doing okay. πŸ˜€

  • @kristian  Jan 2020

    Mads Love.. *sigh*

  • @kristian  Jan 2020

    A FAWM without Mads Love is not really a FAWM; so I hope you two are back for more!

  • @expendablefriend  Jan 2020

    Me too - hope to see you back!

  • @tesla3090  Jan 2020

    Hope to see you around this year!

  • @aesthetic72  Jan 2020

    Ditto all of the below.

  • @paulhenry  Jan 2020

    I'm with @oddbod.

  • @oddbod  Jan 2020

    Hey David, missed having you around last year so I hope you're back for 2020.

  • @adforperu  Jan 2020

    Hey man, happy FAWMing!
