FAWM 3! I play guitar, mandolin, mouth harp and plink away on the keyboard.
I'd be happy to contribute mouth harp or mandolin to one of your songs. Let me know.
I love the story telling aspect of songwriting, and look forward to stretching out from my default folk and blues.
I record through either an iConnectivity Audio 4+ or Apogee One audio interface to my iPad running Auria Pro, with a few fun music apps thrown in.
I’m happy to receive constructive criticism on my songs.
I recently started a new job - the hands of a government man - that’s taking a huge amount of time and energy. We’ll see how that affects my FAWM production.
Thanks for commenting on Bleach My Bones. Neither myself or Dan are guitar noodlers, so hats of to Dan who channeled something from somewhere.
Thank you for your comment on "I've Heard It All! Say It Again!!". I could do better on the recording but I did not want to waste too much on it when I have other songs to write as well.
Hmmm...I had to look at my session to see how many sounds I used on You Brought Me In...
22 individual channel strips..plus 1 bus for my individual drum tracks...
Although the "brought me in" vocal is just one sample, but I pitched one down and gave it its own track.
Thanks for asking me, I never really pay attention to how many tracks I have in a given song! And I'm glad it came together instead of crashing terribly!
Thanks for your kind words. Nice. Well, if you ever find yourself in the San Francisco Bay Area, please look me up. I'd play music with you anytime!
Thank you so much for your kind comments on my songs!
Thank you for your comment. Greatly appreciate it.
Thanks for you comments on “Mine (Lyrics)“!
Thanks for giving all 7.33 of my epic about the Spanish Civil War a listen.
Thanks for you comments on “Hat“!
Thanks for commenting on my song black door!
Thanks for the comment on "Mallory's Lament". I find the cajon works well on certain songs and demos. Some songs really benefit from a full kit and real drummer.
Last year it was vocal samples, as well; with everything else played by me.
Since I've found Splice, I've become even more obsessed with vocals, as its so fun playing around with them. Plus I don't sing, so...
I've also come to really love messing around with guitar samples; another instrument I can't play. You might hear some examples of that this year...maybe.
But man, really loving your stuff this year! You have a unique voice that can do a lot of different styles, and that gritty bluesy vibe of Fly...THAT'S good stuff, man!
Here's to the rest of the month!
Thanks for your comment on my sea shanty! Yes, I guess those guys must have gone through the rest of their lives reflecting on how lucky they were. If you like this kind of thing, I highly recommend Shackleton's 'South' or Alfred Lansing's 'Endurance' which are both amazing tales of fortitude and suffering and buggering on against all odds..
Hey man, thank you for the kind words. I remember you from last year, after I dropped out. Glad to see your name.
So for the song No Excuse, the "there is no excuse" vocal is a sample from Splice. Everything else is just me.
On Hold Me, all the vocals are Splice samples.
Thank you. Thank you for the comment and for listening to both of those songs. Your words mean a lot. <3
Hi Richard! I've had a few other things to sort out, so I'm a little late with both writing and listening but I'll catch up!
Thank you for the kinds words on "With all of Your Might", that one ended up better than I expected.
The Silver Fox!
Thank you for the visit, the listen, and the kind words. 😀
I had fun pushing myself out of my comfort zone with that one and recording it without all my usual tech, so it's really appreciated when listeners enjoy it!
Cheers quork. Definitely watching your space.
Hi, I saw your post in the NH thread, are you from NH?
