    Hello, sorry for my late reply. Feel free to see what you can do with my chords track, if the muse is still with you!

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 9

    My pleasure! I love your music!

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 7

    Thank you so much for all of your kind comments! On (we don’t need) another silent night. William did a lovely job on the version he did. He changed my original lyrics to fit his style and the message he wanted to deliver which had increased tension and more blame. My original lyrics were more tender and longing with the singer taking more responsibility for whatever happened in the relationship and more of a sense of sadness and hope for things to get better. Thus, if you had any interest in a post FAWM collab with the original sentiment using the original lyric I would be thrilled and happy to post with you as a collaborator here

  • @wolfkier Feb 22

    Thanks for your very kind comment about my Taylor Swift cover. It was not only fun to do but a great learning experience.

  • @dannyk1  Feb 19

    I'm thinking that You Can't Say I Didn't try is more suited for a male voice.

    I kinda had someone in mind to shop this one to.

    Thank you for the offer.

  • @dannyk1  Feb 18

    My apologies for cluttering your feed. The artist I suggested John Staples is johnstaples.

  • @dannyk1  Feb 18

    Welcome to FAWM Susan. It's a wonderful environment packed with some of the most talented people in the world. Check out John Staples. He's crazy talented.

  • @gregwere Feb 11

    Thanks for your comments on Some Distant Chorus, the tuning is CACGCE, opens up alot of stuff, I'm sure you'll enjoy giving it a go. Cheers Greg

    Thanks for the positive comments on my latest tune. It really feels like a departure for me so quite happy it has landed well in your ears.

  • @wingandwaltz  Feb 9

    @sheslin thanks for listening to Gotta Roll! @jkolb did a really nice job with it, first time anyone has snagged a lyric of mine and made it into something, it's very satisfying. Thanks for the kind words

  • @pitt  Feb 5

    Thanks for commenting on my songs! I appreciate the feedback you have given!

  • @gregwere Feb 5

    Yeh I got into alt tuning through Nick Drake, only really tried two tunings, but when I retire I'm going to put some serious time into exploring many others. IT feels like a different instrument with alt tuning as you say very full sound.

  • @mikeb Feb 4

    Thanks for listening to my Week 1 Challenge song! It definitely is a 'work in progress', music written in 10 minutes, and recorded with 1 mic right after - appreciate the suggestions.
