    Aha! Of course, now I remember. πŸ˜€

    Having lots of fun listening to your personal challenge Tom. What a wonderful on the spot performance. I really loved it , laughed along on the parts where you laughed, felt the emotions. It was like I was visiting a live show. Great idea and well executed.

  • @barbara  Mar 1

    Yes. I'm told the judges *will* accept that answer! No, wait, there's a scuffle... No. I'm sorry. Not enough equivocating.

  • @adnama17  Mar 1

    Your songs looked lonely.

  • @elainedimasi  Mar 1

    Re: >10ms, good guitarists who've dropped by my pad to track had indeed declared it unplayable. For a hack like me who paints everything in and hopes for the best, it's slightly less frustrating. But only slightly!

  • @fuzzy  Mar 1

    You won!

  • @fuzzy  Feb 28

    Thanks for the congrats for winning, bud!
    It's not too late for you; you can crank out seven songs by tomorrow, right? πŸ˜‰

  • @barbara  Feb 27

    Velcro Elvis! That’s a mean stubble I keep getting my angora sweater stuck in. Damn straight.

  • @elainedimasi  Feb 17

    Just sent you an email. Will hook this thing up to some real speakers tomorrow and give a listen!

  • @scottdolson  Feb 14

    Jurisprudence - won't you come out to play?

  • @barbara  Feb 10

    Jurisprudence. Lovely word. The textbooks seem too heavy -- quite literally.

  • @barbara  Feb 10

    On the bright side... a lower risk of post-operative nausea? The silver [gut] lining.
    But seriously, if it's been a struggle, then all you've learned to do musically is all the more impressive.

  • @tseaver  Feb 9

    Thanks listening / commenting on "Wonderful Misery," and for refreshing my memory of the word, "limerance." Indeed, that seems to fit the character to a tee.

  • @mattblick  Feb 8

    Hey Johnny Trem - keep it crispy!

  • @barbara  Feb 8

    Proving the old adage that those who can't learn teach. Wait, that's not it. But it could be.
    So what's the mutation?

  • @barbara  Feb 7

    Ah, but sensei, we are all teachers for each other!

  • @barbara  Feb 6

    Just when I was trying to "drop the ego" as instructed, you come along and bestow such a beautiful compliment! Surely you are a teacher sent to challenge me. I am very grateful for your extremely kind words; they gave me such a lift! Thank you.

  • @guatecoop  Feb 3

    Oh, and yes I use a click track....BUT I record backwards out of necessity by recording guitars and bass first. I’m not all that steady to a click track on guitars but after that I turn off the click to let it be more natural because music is human, right?

  • @guatecoop  Feb 3

    Truth be told, I made a last second substitution and took the ribbons off of the overheads because I was nervous about the ceiling and put ISK Little Gems (with a cardioid capsule) on the overheads in the recorderman style and put them through presonus eureka preamps. I changed out the opamps in those for burr browns. I didn’t do anything different otherwise or even test it out beforehand, but it worked. Thank goodness. Thanks for the listen and comment!

  • @tonyr Feb 1

    Aye up.

  • @fourzeroes  Jan 28

    I should have left a note inside it for its next owner/s to keep me up to date on its travels.

  • @fourzeroes  Jan 27

    I used to have the bass version of that Teisco in your picture. It was complete garbage. πŸ˜€

    πŸ‘‘πŸ΄πŸŽ‰ Birthday Donkey!

  • @resonut123 Jan 25

    Welcome Johnny T!

  • @resonut123 Jan 25

    Of the pic...
    Hibachi Hal & Johnny Tremolo are Grunge rockers, Pete Vest is a New Romantic and in the back is Eddie Hassle: a Punk!

  • @resonut123 Jan 25

    Cool profile pic... is that vintage electric guitar plugged into that log? or the weird hibachi camp stove?

  • @max  Jan 22

  • @adnama17  Jan 22

    Figured you would've caved first.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 20

    As you know, we only have premium, lake-surrounded, liberal, collegiate oxygen available here in Mad City so it must be something else. I'll send some over by post.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 20

    The thought of new @toms music makes me @giddy.

  • @guatecoop  Jan 20

    Yeah, I got hooked on the idea of getting one or one of the other Yamahas. Originally the cp or yp 40 caught my eye, so I investigated the cp 35 and 25, but like the cp30 the best and found one near cabelas on rt23. Took a drive and got it. It is heavy as hell, but I like it and it takes a distortion pedal pretty well to kind of pull off a Rhodes sound. The piano is cool on its own though, so I agree with you. It should show up quite a bit this FAWM.

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 19

    Did I forget to ask you to do a track with me this year?

    Please do a track with me this year!

  • @srcoops Jan 18

    I see you are friends with my sons. We once lived near you in Owosso. Perhaps we can find something to work on together.

  • @resonut123 Jan 16

    Looking forward to some of that (ahem) easy-listening music.

  • @zecoop  Jan 2019

    As always, I cannot wait to hear what you bring. And as always, I sincerely hope we collaborate!

  • @klaus  Jan 2019

    Hi Tom. I'm so sorry for you loss. I know how much good old FAWMku meant to you. I didn't know it that well but I heard a lot of good things about it. I wish you strength in the coming days and months, and maybe I can mail you tuna cassarole if it helps. If there is anything I can do, please, just let me know. I'm here for you.

    My deepest and most hearfelt condolences
    forever you friend, Klaus

  • @andygetch  Jan 2019

    Tom. Will. Rock.

  • @tamsnumber4  Jan 2019


  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    Of course; I like working with your music.
    Always fruitful.

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 2019

    Hey Tom! Hey!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    MORE AWESOME MUSIC PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • @guatecoop  Jan 2019

    Thank you! And how about you?

  • @guatecoop  Jan 2019

    Yes, all pretty huge changes but good. A new son in May, a new house in May, and a new job in December.

  • @guatecoop  Jan 2019

    Yes it is! How are things going with you? Lots of good change here since the last time we talked.
