    Danke für den Kommentar zu WITW. Ich bin super gespannt wie der Song mit Vocals klingen wird. Dauert aber leider noch. Auch ohne isses schon richtig fett!

  • @berni1954  5 weeks

    I should have looked at your info before commenting on "Feline" - I'd have never guessed you were German from the rest of the song. Spitze!

  • @nadine 5 weeks

    Danke fürs Reinhören! Die Jungs haben echt drauf. Als ich die Spuren zum ersten Mal gehört habe bin ich auch vom Stuhl gefallen 😁

  • @nadine 5 weeks

    .... und zack - wie versprochen ist die final Version von "Fight for you" nun online. Ich wünsch dir frohe Ostern und freue mich schon auf unser Projekt 😀

  • @berni1954  6 weeks

    Happy you enjoyed my take on "Orpheus & Eurydice"

  • @prsongsmith  Mar 15

    So glad you enjoyed "Frog Sex Party"! Thanks for the kind comment!

  • @sw1n3flu  Mar 14

    Hey! Glad you enjoyed it 😀 - see you for week 3!!

  • @rainchaser  Mar 12

    Thank you for commenting on my song, "Please Treat Me Better". I Appreciate your comment!

  • @artie Mar 8

    Hey, thanks for your comment on Starfish. Right!!?? 😆 I'm still similarly amused by it.

  • @mahtowin Mar 6

    Danke für Deine Kommentare! Vor allem auch fürs lesen .... 🌻

  • @ofishell  Mar 5

    Vielen Dank! Ich habe den Text korrigiert!

  • @ofishell  Mar 5

    Auch wenn ich spät dazu komme, wollte ich mich bei Dir für Deine nette Kommentare meiner Songs herzlich bedanken!

  • @audrey  Mar 4

    Thanks for listening and for the kind comment on "No Hurry"

  • @brisk  Mar 4

    Thanks for listening to "Only Son" - I really appreciate the comment. I'm going to give yours a go now, in the spirit of reciprocity! Thanks.

  • @ampersandman  Mar 3

    Ja, zwischen Baritone und Bass VI hab ich lange hin- und herüberlegt. Aber als Fan von Thrice musste ich noch irgendwas Tiefes haben. Meine Wand ist nun definitiv auch voll. Danke für dein Mitgefühl ... vielleicht hab ich ja 50/90 den ein oder anderen Song damit.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Mar 2

    Thanks so much for taking the time to listen to "Perfection” and the lovely comment you made. I appreciate it!

  • @dragondreams  Mar 1

    Thank you for the listen and the kind comments about my bass sound.
    The amp is still very much a prototype. It will not be available to own for at least another year, maybe more. 😉

  • @stewdean  Feb 28

    Hey, you said you wanted to hear it so check out the demo I've added for 'Middle of the night'. It's unlike any of my other tracks and goes full 80s rock. https://fawm.org/songs/118244/

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 27

    Oooh. yes please!

  • @beat  Feb 27

    ...konnte einfach nicht wiedersehen ˋ].

  • @ajna1960  Feb 26

    I added you to grub time for kitties ! Thank you 😀

  • @engebretsen  Feb 26

    Hehe. Looking forward to it!

  • @chroes  Feb 26

    Thank you for your delightful comments on my songs! <3

  • @nadine Feb 25

    Danke fürs vorbeischauen und bewerten!

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 25

    Thanks loads for you lovely comments on feeling alive. I'll have to come clean that verse bass was a loop. I just had to try to smooth it in with my own bass for the chorus. I tired to recreate the loop with my bass but lord i need some lessons for that 😉

  • @beat  Feb 24

    Sehr schönes Album von T.D., kannte ich noch gar nicht.
    Aber in Zeiten wie unseren grad eben sollte man/frau sich nicht fürchten ab und an mal ein wenig über Absurditäten zu schmunzeln oder gar laut raus zu lachen. Hat sich ein etwas uneingeladen in mein 2021 FAWMonat eingeschlichen...

  • @erelpi10 Feb 24

    That was such a sweet comment you left on out board. Thank you

  • @engebretsen  Feb 23

    Thx again for comments! Time is running sooooooo fast now. I really was hoping for sph guitar, but we`ll see.... Still some days left.

  • @prsongsmith  Feb 21

    Thanks so much for listening to "Birds of Galway Bay"! It means so much to me to know that it resonated with you! I hope you don't mind if I reach out to you for support next year when my daughter is away... 😀 (just kidding!) Thanks again!

  • @nikopee Feb 21

    Thank you for the comment. Now when you said it, I notice those Dragon Attack vibes, too! I'm quite sure that I've stolen my riff (or at least the feel) from someone, but this time it's more likely Nuno Bettencourt than Brian May.

  • @fuzzy  Feb 20

    Hey, thanx for stitching the Corpse together!

  • @sunnymae  Feb 20

    So glad you enjoyed Bus Stop! it was a pleasure writing with Rose's witty lyrics!

  • @nadine Feb 20

    Danke nochmal für deinen Kommentar zu Pyromancer. Ich hab Version 2 mit Vocals hochgeladen. Kannst gerne mal reinhören. Freue mich schon auf die Zusammenarbeit!

  • @berni1954  Feb 19

    Glad you liked my whaling song. I used to be a semi-pro folk singer in the 1980s and sea songs were my speciality.

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 19

    Sometimes I wanna be the little spoon
    And lay-in-bed with you ‘til noon, yeah

    Time passes fast in bed together
    We laugh and kiss and talk about whatever
    You tell me stories about Japan
    And I tell you about my high school band, yeah

    We doze off and when we wake
    I ask if you want me to make pancakes
    Then sitting at the table across from you
    You pass the syrup, I pass the juice, yeah

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 19

    That turned out really great! 🤣

  • @bandybum Feb 19

    Hi there, Mr Stitcher 😊
    Hope you’re having a fun FAWM!
    Finally got the piece for Exquisite Corpse finished - huzzah!! (Just emailed it to you)
    Was planning my usual guitar + vocals type thing but ended up going somewhere completely different. Hope it inspires. I love this game 😊

  • @speed0doyle Feb 19

    Hi, thanks for your comment on ‘There are Ghosts’. To answer your question, for the solo I took a first take ad lib vocal solo, humming in and around the melody, and then doubled it, pitch shifted it in GarageBand, compressed and distorted it with megaphone vocal effect.

  • @nadine Feb 18

    Danke für deine Kommentare! An Feuerschwanz habe ich gar nicht gedacht, aber ja, stimmt! Pyromancer hat noch Platz für einen Bass. Grad sieht es danach aus dass wir den Song für den Sänger transponieren müssen. Die Tonart wird wohl im Laufe der Woche festgelegt. Du kannst mir schonmal eine Mail schicken als reminder. Hast du 4 oder 5-saiter?

  • @reklov  Feb 18

    Besten Dank für deine vielen netten Kommentare zu meinen Sachen! Möchte mich auch noch mal herzlich für das Zusammenstückeln des "Acoustic Corpse" bei dir bedanken und noch einmal erwähnen, dass ich deine Video-Collab ganz fantastisch finde! Das legt die Messlatte enorm hoch! Schön auch, mir mal ein Bild von dir machen zu können. 😀

  • @ampersandman  Feb 18

    Thanks for the listens 😊 🤚

  • @quork  Feb 15

    Got it, thanks for helping me out. Fun stuff.

  • @ajna1960  Feb 15

    Oh I am so sorry @sph I'll write something for you today if nothing on my list suits you !! Just let me know and I'll do it now for you. Again, apologies.

  • @ajna1960  Feb 15

    Helloooooo 😀 - we are partnered for the Random Collab #2 !! How do you want to go about it ? Shall I write some lyrics and send them to you ? Or would you prefer a different way ?

  • @riffraff1990 Feb 14

    Thank you for listening to my rain song ❤️ rock on fellow fawmer

  • @lowhum Feb 13

    Hey - let's do a collab - if you have time - say so!

  • @itoarazi Feb 12

    Those were beautiful last words, indeed. I expected nothing less from Mr. Corea.

  • @wazylizard  Feb 12

    I directly took the opportunity to use my drummers' new cymbals that arrived yesterday. So many variations of sound!
    You should totally let your drummer use a bass bow on them - but the china was working better than the thicker crash, I have to say.

  • @jessespillane Feb 12

    Thanks for the comment. I appreciate you stopping by!

    Thank you for your kind comment. If you feel it I would Love for you to take it on of course.

  • @engebretsen  Feb 9

    Thx! Swiss impression...

  • @beat  Feb 8

    ^]. Ja, aber sicher super Bass drums...

  • @twyllodrus Feb 8

    Cheers for your nice comment on "Hong Kong Pfui".

  • @beat  Feb 8

    ˋ]. Thx. Eigentlich wollte ich ja auch mit echten Hüten arbeiten aber weder ich noch meine Nachbaren sind Hutträger... schade, das hätte sicher auch Spaß gemacht.

  • @leepat  Feb 7

    Hi Stephan, if you start with G#, C would be the 4th letter, when it’s really the 3rd of the chord - that’s why we normally call that Ab (major). Dbb would be an exaggeration indeed - dim7 chords are special beasts, but I’d say both Cdim and Adim (and F# or Gbdim are fair game). cheers!

  • @tabitha Feb 5

    I sent an email with my minute for the acoustic corpse but I am not sure if it sent correctly. In case it didn't here is the link here as well https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XXZKQCW4n-IZcPCBnJodbYAiYTKdT0KG/v...

  • @chroes  Feb 5

    Danke dir für deinen lieben Kommentar unter Chasing Audrey! Ich glaub, ich brauche mehr Abstand zu meinen Songs, ich hau die grad so schnell raus, dass ich den Wald vor lauter Bäumen nicht mehr sehe.

  • @engebretsen  Feb 5

    Thx a lot for comments on "Musica Poetica No9". Much appreciated.

  • @grenzgaengerin Feb 5

    Herzlichen Dank für Deine Kommentare. Vielen vielen Dank

  • @beat  Feb 5

    Thx fürs hören und kommentieren.

  • @ampersandman  Feb 4

    Hi, nein, das war ein Hausmarke-Teil von Gear4Music. Vergleichbar mit dem Fender Bass VI, aber halt schöner und günstiger.
    Danke übrigens für den netten Kommentar, freut mich.

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 3

    Hah! and that could all be very terribly wrong 😁 It's a guestimate.

    undercooled campfire? warm icicles? is there a theme going here? 😁 I'll have to come back.

  • @reklov  Feb 3

    Danke! Ich hätte eigentlich gedacht, dass ich die Timingprobleme ausgemerzt hätte! Wo sind denn da jetzt noch Haker? Kannst du mir mal ein paar Stellen nennen? Würde mir helfen. Danke!

  • @cblack Feb 3


    Honestly, my voice has really only come about recently. Spent the last year or so focusing on it, to the point where I now surprise myself. I'll sing something and then think, "Holy shit! Did that come out of me?!" Never would've considered voice acting before, but now maybe?

    Anyway, glad you liked it!

  • @dzdandcunfsd  Feb 2

    Corpse minute..........It runs a little long, and a bit of a cheat as it started as one of my Jamuary tracks, but it got redone and now with vocal samples 😁
    It's 1:20? I think, so feel free to cut/slice/splice do whatever I'm easy.


    hmmm lemme rename it........okay that link should work

  • @ajna1960  Feb 2

    he he yup it was some years ago wasn't it.
    Yes added a lot and played around a bit with what was there. I can see a lot more I want to change, but I can do that later.

  • @ampersandman  Feb 2

    Danke für die netten Worte zu "Sing"! 😊

  • @lastnightilie Feb 1

    Hello there! Do you have any interest in writing the music first that I can either topline and sing lyrics + melody (if you like), or I could send you lyrics and you can add it to the music? I'm used to writing lyrics and melody at the same time, and would find it more creatively inspiring to write to the music. But if not I can challenge myself to write plain lyrics, let me know!

    -edit- You could also write the music and hum a melody if you like, and I could write the lyrics!

  • @pfaffbrill  Feb 1

    Danke für den netten Kommentar! Have a great FAWM!

  • @beat  Jan 16

    Thx fürs zuhören. Ja das hat Spaß gemacht. Dieses Jahr kommt neben der Maschine auch wieder etwas mehr Xperiment rein wenn ich es denn tatsächlich schaffe mit VCV generative Soundteppiche zu erzeugen... wünsche dir einen ertragreichen Februar.
