Artist Bio

Influences:   Mostly easy listening music from the 1970s.

Short bio: bio.
Long bio: biiiiiiiiiiiiooooooooooo.
Be kind to each other.
He, him.

The plan this FAWM is to record with a student grade Gretsch into a late 70s MXR+ into a 1959 Gibson Skylark turned up to 8.5 with maybe an sm57 because I hate production. It takes too much time. Also, that was some good music back then. I mean, mostly people couldn't play very well and the songs were mostly brutally stupid. So, like, high art. RIght?

    It worked!

    If that's going to feed more crunchy @toms songs directly into my earteeth, I'm going to comment so hard. I'm commenting right now in my mind. And this one counts, btw.

  • @downburst  Feb 2

    No, the title came after that what it sounded like. I'm glad you liked it.

    Ta muchly. Parker Fly Mojo MIDI into a Zoom G3, into the Mooer Ocean Machine, then straight in to the mixer. Been experimenting playing with my thumb, Jeff Beck style, instead of using a pick. It seems to be working for me.

    Superior Drummer 3 is not cheap that's for sure

  • @daveyboy103  Feb 2

    On drum engineering, yes, definitely the hardest bit.

    Superior Drummer 3 by Toontrack is awesome if you have even relatively well recorded drums. You can either replace the drums entirely with their pristinely sampled versions of mix them together.

    Not cheap but like all Toontrack stuff it is absolutely brilliant.

    So long as you can get clear separation on the drums parts this really offers a great opportunity for enhancement.

    Alternatively if you use Logic the Drummer add in is awesome using AI to match your song.

    I tend to use Drummer driving Superior Drummer 3 so you can check out my tracks for examples.

    this is pretty cool ! i dig it <3

  • @radioovermoscow Feb 2

    Drums are the hardest part of a homemade rock mix to do, eh. What you had fits the style of course - but small tweaks can often be the difference between an amateur and pro mix!

    Use compression liberally is the number one tool 😀 Look forward to hearing some more of that guitar though. I think there's an MXR sim in Amplitube somewhere, might have to check it out.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2

    When in doubt, always sing higher, right? 😉

  • @klaus Jan 31

    Hi Tom. May your song count go to 14 and all your guitar amps to eleven. Have a fun Fawm 2021. 😀

  • @wrenarcher  Jan 27

    Hi Tom. Thanks for the welcome.
    I have a pretty good feeling the drought will dissipate by participating in FAWM since I had ideas start coming to me just a couple of weeks after signing up.

    Of course it's the actually doing it that is troubling me now. Between work and a big home improvement project plus trying to carve out a space where I can write/record is going to be a challenge.

    I'll figure it out one way or another. Thanks again.

  • @airbagtester  Jan 27

    Hi! 😀

  • @guatecoop  Jan 27

    Aw man, you were a part of the zoom?!? That really bums me out that I missed it. Maybe next time.

  • @headfirstonly  Jan 26

    Well hello there! Here we go again, what? Happy FAWMing!

  • @downburst  Jan 26

    Hi Tom!

  • @atam94  Jan 26

    Hey, I'm glad to hear that you're liking the video production process! And I agree, that does sound like a great way to learn, for sure. Looking forward to the music you're making this year!

  • @beat  Jan 16

    Luv yer looong bio! Have a great FAWM.

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 15

    They're using psychological methods to gain advantage over me. It won't work.

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 14

    They told me there's no Bond St teleporter but bc of your intel, I KNOW THERE MUST BE.

  • @adnama17  Jan 13

    I Slack way too much this time of year!

  • @johncrossman  Jan 13

    I like to take a toms song, rub it on the carpet and stick it up to the ceiling where I can keep an ear on it. Toms!

  • @adnama17  Jan 13

    Get your own p bass and we can duel!

  • @jeustan  Jan 11

    Dear Tom(s),

    You rock. When you rock, I rock. We all rock. This is good.

  • @andygetch  Jan 11

    I did. Got a 'check' on Slack.

  • @andygetch  Jan 11


  • @elainedimasi  Jan 11


  • @andygetch  Jan 11 do that for awhile and I'll do this. Oh yeah.

  • @andygetch  Jan 10

    Lets. Do. This.

  • @fuzzy  Jan 10

  • @guatecoop  Jan 5

    I don’t subscribe so it throws in other was such a bad song that I didn’t even look! I was enjoying your songs, then #€%¥*€%#!!!

  • @guatecoop  Jan 5

    Wow, Tom, that is some awesome music on Spotify!! I hope that you’re feeling satisfied with it. I loved what I heard before some terrible song interrupted your album. Great stuff.
