Influences: Mostly easy listening music from the 1970s.
Short bio: bio.
Long bio: biiiiiiiiiiiiooooooooooo.
Be kind to each other.
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?

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
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
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.
When in doubt, always sing higher, right? 😉
Hi Tom. May your song count go to 14 and all your guitar amps to eleven. Have a fun Fawm 2021. 😀
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.
Aw man, you were a part of the zoom?!? That really bums me out that I missed it. Maybe next time.
Well hello there! Here we go again, what? Happy FAWMing!
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!
Luv yer looong bio! Have a great FAWM.
They're using psychological methods to gain advantage over me. It won't work.
They told me there's no Bond St teleporter but bc of your intel, I KNOW THERE MUST BE.
I Slack way too much this time of year!
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!
Get your own p bass and we can duel!
You rock. When you rock, I rock. We all rock. This is good.
I did. Got a 'check' on Slack.
WE ARE WRITEY AND MIGHTY
.....you do that for awhile and I'll do this. Oh yeah.
Lets. Do. This.
Happy FAWMing to you!!!
I don’t subscribe so it throws in other songs.....it was such a bad song that I didn’t even look! I was enjoying your songs, then #€%¥*€%#!!!
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.
