    Thanks for the listen!

  • @kovbleu  Feb 18

    I just wanted to thank you for your kind words of encouragement this year that had absolutely nothing to do with music. I haven't even been on the site as much as normal. I'm not sure what happened, but you're an awesome human and a very talented one at that. I hope you return when it's right for you. I sincerely mean that. You're one of the people I look forward to hearing and interacting with most every year. Take care of yourself - sending lots of love!!!

  • @sciren  Feb 16

    If you miss this man as much as me, please send him an encouraging message full of longing and appreciation on his Soundcloud. 😂 He needs the distraction, and a reminder of how amazing a musician he is (even though he'll say he doesn't). https://soundcloud.com/mdavisto

  • @looprication  Feb 16

    Wait, what happened? Miss you, like the deserts miss the rain kinda Miss You, and I mean that sincerely.

  • @paulhenry  Feb 15

    Take care. Be well. Write if you're up to it.

  • @kristian  Feb 13

    deleted?? huh?

  • @tesla3090  Feb 12

    Everything okay? We're missing your music!

  • @papaooo Feb 12

    Polka IS the original metal.

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 9

    I always enjoy your work. Your songcraft is phenomenal and your engineering/production is something I hope/wish I can someday attain.

  • @sciren  Feb 9

    Please come back.

  • @heidiserwer  Feb 9

    Thanks for stopping by my page and for your comments on "Suzanne"!

  • @evinwolverton  Feb 8

    I hope you'll stick around if possible. Your work this year has been very good and your feedback useful.

  • @tcelliott  Feb 7

    Heya. Not sure what's going on. But I hope you're not leaving leaving. And if you are, I support you and don't want to make you feel like your choices aren't valid and important. But I'd hate to see you go. If you need to vent or anything let me know. I'm on the slack chat and my email is pigfarmerjr (at) gmail (dot) com

  • @roxya Feb 7

    Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Wasn't planning on participating this year, but you know the FAWM FOMO is real.

  • @colgoo Feb 6

    Music is up for “My Guitar’s Your Metamour”.

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 5

    Thanks! I have over the years started to bring the vocal up in my mixes, but this was a pretty weak take so kept it a bit lower 😀

  • @candle  Feb 5

    Yeah, I've heard it does work, though it might depend on what particular Buzz Machine you're using. That's awesome. I got into trackers via Screamtracker back in the early '90's. Then I found Impulse Tracker - but I wanted something that could do MIDI & record live. That's when I found Buzz (around 2005 I think). I've been using it ever since & haven't looked back. There's new machines developed all the time & Oskari (the original program dev) was able to re-write the entire program & put out a more modern version after the infamous hard drive crash when he lost his source code. It's got a small, but friendly & dedicated community & there's new song posted to the Buzz music respository all the time: https://www.buzztunes.org/

    I'd love to hear some of your FL/Buzz stuff.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @colgoo Feb 5

    In response to “My Guitar’s Your Metamour”: Oh, my nesting partner is not new to this. This is our sixth rodeo....and they know that I put the bulk of my writing in the first two weeks. I look forward to sharing the finished product with them when they get back from spending the night with my HUMAN Metamour.

  • @candle  Feb 5

    LOL! Thanks. Glad you enjoyed Losing Control. Yeah, it was a lot of fun. Are you a former Buzzer, then?

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Feb 5

    Originally from The Netherlands. The accent is real, not just your projection 😀

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Feb 5

    Yes, you did ask for that. Were you expecting anything less? But also, it actually is a really, REALLY nice song 😀

  • @scotttestmusic  Feb 5

    @mdavisto ! Good to hear from you, my friend! Hopefully I can rise to the occasion. Looking forward to hearing your stuff this year as well.

  • @theawkwardsleep  Feb 4

    I’m going to get Sanford and attempt to put it on a song I’m currently mixing. Thanks for sharing. Please keep sharing. I love your mixes. -ru

  • @metalfoot  Feb 4

    Yeah Yeah Yeah is not in the least autobiographical but you nailed the theme of it. I thought it was a generally relatable lyric and thus useful for a general challenge like Fake It!

  • @yashenka Feb 4

    Your comment made me laugh, so thank you. I really appreciated it 😊 -- I'm going to look through your FAWM submissions and enjoy them a ton. Again cheers.

  • @bamsekarhu  Feb 4

    Thanks for the kind words! Will check your stuff soon!

  • @oddbod  Feb 4

    You must've hit 100 by now - every time I leave a comment somewhere it feels like you've been there first!

    Yeah, there are 2 nurses amongst my close friends. It's been crazy for them recently.

  • @tukayandryan  Feb 4

    Really appreciate the feedback. Thank you for being so lovely 😊

  • @rembotenoy Feb 4

    Dude thanks for all your kind words and tips!! This is my first time FAWMing and I've loved it so far. Loving what you're doing so far. 😀

  • @dragondreams  Feb 3

    I did all the composition on keyboard rather than guitar... But it just kinda screamed out for that little non-shreddy guitar break once I listened back to it. 😉
    Many thanks for listening and commenting! 😀

  • @willyviste Feb 3

    Thank you for your comment, appreciate the kind words:)

  • @engebretsen  Feb 3

    Thx a lot for comments on "Fallen Angel"

  • @shintai  Feb 3

    Thank your for listening and your kind words! Have a nice FAWM and keep on the good work!

  • @rops  Feb 3

    Thanks for the comment on "Lost." I keep wanting to change the guitar tone because I feel like it probably is too much, but I've gotten so used to hearing it so crunchy that every time I start to dial it back it just doesn't feel right, haha. Guess I'm stuck with it for better or worse.

  • @natalieedelson  Feb 3

    Thanks for your kind words on Prelude. Looking forward to listening .

  • @thebschip Feb 3

    Wow, thank you!!! That's so helpful!

  • @theawkwardsleep  Feb 3

    Hey, thanks for the Sanford suggestion. We'll check it out! I'm kinda a sucker for big verbs - to a fault likely. I just can't escape the ethereal feels. Appreciate your thoughts. -Ru

  • @sci Feb 2

    ty for the kind comment, and also congrats on being the first reply on my soundboard!

  • @circle Feb 2

    hey, thanks for your comment!

    look here mate. the unhearable vocals are mostly a choice - i'm pretty bad at lyrics and in that song the vocals are just improv nonsense for the most part! but also yeah i kind of like burying them as a style thing, whenever i push them up in the mix it never sounds quite right. anyway thanks for listening, perhaps you will get to hear some real singing at some point, stay tuned

  • @hanley  Feb 2

    I made it! Did I miss anything?
    Hope you're well dude, looking forward to more of your goodness this year!

  • @pfaffbrill  Feb 2

    Sisters are indeed one of my many influences. 😀 Played a big part in my youth 😀

  • @ryako  Feb 2

    It's okay that you noped out of my song. Sometimes the pain is too real and too fresh.

  • @aeye Feb 2

    Let's just say, sleep is not something I got a lot of 😉

  • @oddbod  Feb 2

    keto? sounds like a planet in the Venturian galaxy many light years yonder

  • @gindark Feb 2

    Thanks for the comment, and now I have heard your intimidatingly good first song! EEP! I will be listening out for more. 😀

  • @frozenlonesome  Feb 2

    Thanks for listening and for your kind comments on Living Stereo! Glad you liked the track!

  • @oddbod  Feb 2

    How dare you, you uncouth foreigner...I demand satisfaction!
    I metaphorically slap you in the face with a glove

    How do you stand on peanut butter?

  • @marthie Feb 2

    See what you did? now I am addicted to songwriting....lol Good to see you David. One day I am going to get in my car and come meet you(or zoom- zoom works!)

  • @oddbod  Feb 2

    Bovril on toast is an abomination. Bovril just about passable as a half-time drink if you've been standing shivering on a terrace for 45 minutes watching a tedious football match in the middle of winter but that's about it.

  • @sw1n3flu  Feb 2

    I’d go for Bovril on toast, sure ... not eaten it in 25 years or so though!

  • @berni1954  Feb 2

    Thanks for attempting to see my song.
    Does this link work?

    Haha JuDπ, I need to change my name spelling don’t I 😁
    Yes, I kinda had in mind groups of people getting along as groups of people do, but the melancholy guitar remaining over the top representing the loner hiding upstairs in the attic or something 😛

  • @majordanby  Feb 2

    Sorry didn’t mean to post twice. It really does look like I’m labouring the point.

  • @majordanby  Feb 2

    Four years plus of illness, I try to filter out gloomy lyrics when I write. Not in any right on sense, just looking for beauty all around.

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 2

    And now I'm all nostalgic for 'So Long' as imagined by you on the dunny. Can't you run a microphone in there for these moments of inspiration?

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 2

    Thanks! I'm going to use papsak! The box never does survive haha. I usually just call it bag o' wine, but get some strange looks.

  • @mitchmash  Feb 1

    Hey David - so glad to see you here - can't wait to hear what you and @sciren get up to this year!

  • @spirulence Feb 1

    Will see what I can do for you, David! Got a few new tricks up my sleeve for this year. Hoping to hear some more of your polished-to-a-shine productions!

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Feb 1

    Happy Fawming!

  • @susyblue  Jan 31

    Helloooooo!!

  • @pfaffbrill  Jan 29

    Love the Dog in a Car vid!!!

  • @thelowestbitter  Jan 26

    Hey! Thanks, looking forward to hearing your stuff too. Can't wait for February 😀

  • @andrewjtaylor  Jan 26

    Dog in a Car was indeed Ace! Did you make that entirely yourself!

  • @andrewjtaylor  Jan 26

    It’s a quote from a book I read on the difficulty of making art. Basically that we could all “get by” if we never made/heard another piece of art. If we were all struck with Art amnesia we’d be fine, but I suspect we’d have this strange feeling something was missing, like some low level thirst after satisfying you say “this is so much better.”

  • @andrewjtaylor  Jan 26

    Hey David! Love the studio space! Just 1 week till FAWM!

    With all the turmoil since last FAWM, & especially since November, it's hard to feel quite as amped up about it.

    "Unnecessary creation" just feels a little less necessary than usual.

    But...the artists (music & video creators, especially) are arguably the most influential modern-day philosophers, & every day/week/month/year we spend honing our craft is a day/week/month/year invested in contribution to culture, no matter how small our circle of influence.

    Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.

  • @ericdistad  Jan 25

    Hey mdavisto - thanks for the advice on Spotify. That's sort of in line with what I was thinking - I.E. the thing I was missing was hard work. 😀

    Hope you have a great FAWM!

    P.S. Your studio looks awesome!

  • @expendablefriend  Jan 24

    Wotcha, look forward to hearing some new tunes from your direction!

  • @cleansupafterburn Jan 24

    botherbother. I don't usually become a fanatic, but with permission, I'd like to be a lowlevel fan of some kind. No roadie action about me, just appreciation. Ty.

  • @tukayandryan  Jan 23

    Thank you for the warm welcome! We are really looking forward to getting started 😀

  • @jamesstaubes  Jan 22

    Hi there. Yes I am back. I will see you soon.

  • @tesla3090  Jan 21

    Hey! Welcome back, not long now!

  • @mcfunkypants Jan 19

    good luck this year!!!! 😉

  • @leepat  Jan 19

    dig your den! and that video!!!

  • @sunnymae  Jan 17

    For the studio picture, you're correct. I could not create a link from my cell phone. That would only work on my computer.
    Looking forward to hearing some of your creations this year!

  • @mikedebenham  Jan 16

    Sorry to hear it, D. Yeah, let's toss 2020 on a bonfire and burn it into music. (P.S. I envy your monitor setup. One monitor just for EQ. Superfancy.)

  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 16

    Sup! Have a good one!

  • @paulhenry  Jan 16

    Lovely to hear from you. looking forward to it.

  • @aesthetic72  Jan 16

    Hey! Thanks for your note. I love me some FAWM Feb Fabulosity. Can't wait to hear what you and @sciren do this year!

  • @looprication  Jan 16

    Mas Masslove por favor. Hooray!

    the mystical beasts really need a hobby; perhaps weaving?

    great to see you avacado-king!

  • @piney  Jan 15

    Weeeeee!

  • @sciren  Jan 15

    I suppose. Oy! It's year 9!

  • @shortdan  Jan 15

    Hello hello hello!

  • @leah0k Jan 15

    Hey there! I'm hoping that 'stonking' is a real word and you didn't mean for my FAWM to stink HAHA

    I'm guessing it's a fun non-USA word. In fact, it feels familiar. I am going to have to google it now since I keep talking about it. It's just getting awkward now.

    Happy FAWM 😀

  • @mikedebenham  Jan 15

    We do indeed! Now we look busy and pretend we know what we're doing. Hope 2020 wasn't too much of a hellscape.

    Looking forward to your amazing work too! Glad you are here!

  • @bradbrubaker  Jan 11

    Happy new FAWM!

  • @shortdan  Jan 11

    Hey buddy! I'm very much hoping to be involved again this year - it's going to be tricky with a 1 & 2 year old but I'm determined to get some FAWMing in one way or another 😀

  • @judypie  Jan 10

    Yassss! Greetings from blighty! Let’s go do this shit 😁

  • @elesimo  Jan 10

    Hi, David! May this one be our best FAWM so far! 😀

  • @adforperu  Jan 10

    Yooooooooo! Let's do this. Wear a mask?? I've been wearing a pop shield.

  • @brownium  Jan 10

    Hey Dude! Looking forward to hearing your magic! I'm hoping to be a bit more active this year than last.

  • @tseaver  Jan 10

    Thanks for the good wishes, and a happy and creative FAWM to you!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 10

    Yeah, it'll be wonderful to do FAWM after the year we've had! Cheers!
