Let's do 14 songs and call it a month.

It'd be a nice idea to collab with 14 people this time, so if you want bass/guitar/vocal harmony... let me know!!!

[Update: I'll try to be more present in the songmaking past the 15th of February, sorry if I'm not responding much, in particular about MAKING SONGS]

    hey @pifie! Not at all - I haven't been feeling much like recording - but never know - it's never too late (at least until it's March). Good to see you're getting some tunes out!

  • @namjunerobot Feb 21

    Hi Pifie.. yep, I'm in! But not super active 😞 Glad to see you here! Have fun!

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 19

    Feel free to do some vocals on my song Open All Night..
    Post whenever you wish ..thanks!

  • @tunecat  Feb 17

    I could do with some live bass... and vocal and harmonies..

  • @pipewrench67  Feb 12

    The metal rod sound on Slot H is from a Ghosthack soundpack, it's labeled kitchen cutlery.

  • @djtjb  Feb 11

    Thank you for your comments! That Elephant of a synth was a Prophet 600 patch on an FM Synth. It already sounded kind of crunchy in the lower register and then I just went overkill on each subsequent wake from the nap lol.

    Hola te vi en el foro de espanol y pase a saludar!

  • @samwheatley Feb 7

    Hi! I saw your message about my untitled riff and you wanting to put a bassntrack on it. I think that would be awesome! I've never collaborated with another artist before so it's an exciting prospect to me. I will re-record it with a metronome (i'll let you know the speed when i've recorded it).

  • @laotranati Feb 7

    Ay no! El símbolo! Ajajjajaaja parece que andamos bien sintonizados en época y en "odios".
    Me tinca la idea de aplicar los 19738393 usos de weon en alguna parte de la canción, pero no se me ocurre como partir.
    Se te ocurre alguna idea para partir la letra? Buscamos algún loop para ver si se nos ocurre algo? La idea sería de todas formas hacer una parodia tratando de replicar una canción del estilo de un reggaeton, no?
    En un principio pensaba en partir del loop de percusión del reggaeton, y de ahí construir una canción sin usar más elementos del estilo. Tratando se hacer algo que me guste a partir de algo que odio.

    "I feel like a kid playing with the 'big boys' here, so much talent, like yours!"

    You should hear some of the garbage I did back in 2017 when I first did this. But I kept at it and got all 14 done the first year. Then I did the 50/90 Challenge here later that year and finished that! It's all about churning 'em out--the whole "10,000 hours" thing. Keep going--it's fun!

  • @jerrypettit  Feb 5

    Here's a (working, I hope) link to a PDF of the chords to "Summer Should Be Longer".


  • @anonymouse Feb 5

    whisper whisper whisper!

  • @jerrypettit  Feb 5

    OK, since you've asked twice--nicely once!--I'll get you the chords to my "Beach Boys" song "Summer Should Be Longer" tomorrow when I am at my music computer. I'm sure you'll remind me if I forget. 😉

  • @laotranati Feb 4

    Me vine para acá porque en el tema del foro se me pasó un mensaje.
    Ya me había adelantado a ti y habia bajado un sample de reggaeton, porque de VERDAD que lo odio y desde hace un par de FAWM-fallidos quería hacer algo con la base del reggaeton para ver si le puedo dar un "twist" positivo.
    Tampoco me gusta la cumbia, pero en ciertos contextos no me molesta tanto bailarla y cantarla. Con el reggaeton no hay caso.
    Lo otro que odio (pero es bieeen antiguo) es el axé. No sé si fue popular en argentina eso sí.

  • @b4rkst4les Feb 4

    I might just take you up on this and send you the track. or I could just send you the chords and lyric sheet and you can have fun with it.

  • @b4rkst4les Feb 4

    Hey man, thanks for the feedback. I am really a drummer who sings. I have been working on learning to play guitar for the past 8-9 months. If I ever take this to the studio, I would likely belt it out a bit more to emphasize those specific lyrics and certainly lay down my drums behind it. Thank you very much for the feedback. I do appreciate it.

  • @aeye Feb 2

    The vox sample is from an old radio show called "The World Adventurer's club" not sure if that's Alan watts or not to be honest. Just something we've been using the last 5 FAWMs as part of the explorers.

  • @hbusse  Feb 1

    Thanks very much for the kind comment on "Flutter"! So encouraging to already have some listens within the first 10 minutes of posting it!

  • @klaus Jan 30

    Hi Pifie. Thanks for the link. Yes, I still agree with you. This pronoun thing comes from Twitter. It represents everything that is wrong on the Internet. The spirit of Twitter is the opposite of Fawm. And now some people want to bring it here.

    But I'm here to make music and come Monday people have less time for Forums. Have a great Fawm, Pifie!

  • @owl  Jan 30

    OK, I am not at all sure we agree on the basic point, but maybe you didn't express yourself very clearly in the thread, which led to a lot of people and not just me misunderstanding you. If you would like to clarify in a single paragraph what you actually wanted to say, I am happy to listen. I didn't find your essay to cairobraga very clear or concise, so it was a bit hard to figure out what you were trying to convey in that. I agree with your point about social pressure, but you certainly gave the impression of speaking about how the request about adding pronouns to your profile if you feel comfortable with it seemed unreasonable. Maybe that is not what you meant. Cheers!

  • @wobbiewobbit  Jan 29

    cheers thank you 😀 have a great fawm!

  • @wrenarcher  Jan 29

    Hi Pifie!
    Thanks for adding me to your watchlist. Hope I don't disappoint. And for me, I hope I get at least one song uploaded. 😀 Even one would be a win in my book as I've only written one song in the past... I don't know... two years?

    Listened to some of your songs on SoundCloud. I really like "Sunspot"! And "Meditation in D" is really cool, too. Like... REALLY cool. I'm likin' that one a lot.

    Hope you have a fun and productive FAWM.
    ~ Wren

  • @gslade Jan 29

    Huge smile for sure.

  • @owl  Jan 29

    Thanks for reaching out. Sorry we got off on the wrong foot. I think my original point stands, and I apologize for taking an approach that was adversarial and made you defensive. That wasn't the best thing for me to do, but I was feeling annoyed, because I've seen this kind of thing a lot and I see it repeatedly hurting my trans and non-binary friends! I would like to invite you to think about the points I made, like how much it costs you to use someone's pronouns once they have expressed a preference and you're aware of it, versus how much it makes them feel unwelcome when they see someone kicking up a big fuss about them. Maybe the name analogy I posted in the thread might help with understanding the emotional impact. Have a good FAWM!

  • @gslade Jan 29

    Well my youngest is 11 so she's definitely reading and writing. Lol.

  • @complexissimple Jan 29

    I don't really want to turn our soundboards into "Pronoun Discourse Part 2" , but I wanted to let you know that I think you were coming from a genuine place of just wishing that English didn't have gendered pronouns in the first place. Which I can't say I entirely disagree with. I think where we diverge is that I acknowledge that it does and that's not likely to change any time soon and therefore people WILL call me by pronouns - so I had better find some that I can live with.

  • @gslade Jan 28

    What's up man??? I see you're off to a fast start already. Good luck this month.

  • @quork  Jan 28

    Thank you for your graciousness. I'm listening to Arbol de colgar. Pretty impressive. Watchlisting you back.

  • @quork  Jan 28

    Apologies if my tone in the forum came across as harsh. We all support a happy welcoming community. Hope you have a great FAWM.

  • @cairobraga  Jan 28

    thanks for the link! an interesting read.

    pero creo que nos quedaremos sin acuerdo en este tema.

    have a great FAWM!

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Jan 26

    I've made some things from pictures 😁 Not necessarily anything musical, but yeah it's had mixed results hahaha.

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 25

    A thought: our protagonist should definitely not be neurotypical. Let's try to show what their world looks and sounds like.

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 25

    Make prog? Yes! gmail me at elainedimasi and we can talk about how!

  • @paulotteson  Jan 22

    Thanks Pifie! Happy FAWM!

  • @djohnson  Jan 21

    Thanks Pifie! Great to hear from you, look forward to seeing what you put out this Feb!

  • @nancyrost  Jan 21

    I'm open to an out-of-comfort-zone collab this FAWM - let's see if we can make it happen!

  • @andygetch  Jan 20

    Slide (tenor) banjo for the win! It is fun to play and my usual solution for it and my guitars with high action or distressed necks is to tune them lower (for less tension ease of playing) anyway. Currently the banjo is in CGCG or C5.

  • @evinwolverton  Jan 19

    (oops, my butt double-posted)

  • @evinwolverton  Jan 19

    I'm gonna go low for the whole set and see what it's like! Low expectations, but optimistic. Thanks again for that intro

  • @phlex Jan 19

    hey pifie!! great to see you! things are good.
    silent tracks is a solid plan - might have to do a cover of a couple of those.
    still digging attempting to gaze at my shoes in a haze! I actually did some drums over it last year, but they didn't feel right as so didn't say anything!

  • @elesimo  Jan 19

    Hey! I use Ardour for my music production. For drums I started using a sampler (https://lsp-plug.in/?page=manuals&section=multisampler_x12_do) inside Ardour, with each output going to a separate track so I can process it independently. It takes some work to set it up, but it works really nice!

  • @evinwolverton  Jan 19

    I have Magma strings coming just in time : )

  • @elesimo  Jan 18

    Hola! I saw your comment mentioning you use Linux... I also use Linux in my studio, and I love it. Looking forward to hearing your stuff!
