Fredericksburg, Virginia US   Jan 2018


Artist Bio

Influences:   Jugbands, outlaw country, Piedmont blues, rockabilly, jazz of all eras.

I've been playing for what seems forever, and writing more seriously for ten years. Acoustic guitar is my primary instrument, but I play frailing banjo, mandolin/mandola, and bass as well. I wish I retained more of the piano I took as a kid.

    And more kudos for keeping up the commenting rate!

  • @kathym  Feb 26

    Thanks for letting me know about the link on my song. I'll have to go back and double check it in the morning. I may have left a letter out of the file name.

  • @gregwere Feb 25

    thanks for your feedback, just experimenting with more ways to use guitars under the FAWM pressure to do different things, thanks again.

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 24

  • @deena  Feb 23

    Thanks so much for all the listens and kind comments on my songs! I appreciate it so much!

  • @erucaesounds  Feb 23

    Thanks for your very kind words on 'Not Really My Kind Of Day", much appreciated!

  • @sbs2018 Feb 22

    Thanks for your comments on my Swing song! Too much fun!

  • @jonmeta  Feb 19

    Thanks again! You're an attentive listener and careful commentator, and I appreciate it.

  • @dutch1967 Feb 19

    You leave awesome comments, you know that, right? Upside Down In Love was a great little project to do. Gave me a chance to do something I normally wouldn't in an arrangement.

  • @oaksnprairie  Feb 19

    Thank you for your comments on my songs! After I played Stick Together to my husband, he said the problem with epoxy was it was brittle. Hmmm.

  • @tjeff  Feb 18

    Hey, I appreciate you checking out my songs and commenting!

  • @crisp1  Feb 18

    Thanks for all your recent comments!

  • @sph  Feb 18

    Thanks for the comments on my tunes. I hope that I have some time for FAWM this week

  • @jorh Feb 18

    Thanks for your lovely comments on “I fly”, I’m glad you enjoyed it

  • @timfatchen  Feb 17

    I have to bow out now (or shortly). But: applause for your commenting generosity. It's great to have somebody way out in front, just to show what's possible in feedback on FAWM and to totally overturn the still-too-common "I don't have time to comment" comments. Well done and thank you!

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 17

  • @acromie  Feb 17

    Thanks for your comments on my songs. I did have one person offer to collab, but haven't heard from them in a while. If they back out, I will let you know!

  • @charliecheney  Feb 16

    They're going to post live DnD sessions! All of them gathered around doing improvisational stry-telling together, and they'll have the music playing in the background as they play.

  • @headfirstonly  Feb 16

    You're right; "Hidden Intent" *was* chaotic. I've remixed it so that things are (hopefully) clearer. Cheers!

  • @goldelion  Feb 16

    Thank you for listening to "Just LIke You Do" - I appreciate your thoughtful comments! 😀

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 15

  • @sbs2018 Feb 15

    Thanks for the listen to “If I Could Turn Back Time.”

  • @timfatchen  Feb 15

    We've been following Terry Pratchett since The Light Fantastic. But did you know the trolley breeding was sparked by "Or all the seas with oysters" Avram Davidson? Pratchett must have read it about the time I did, except he did wondrous things with it!

  • @aflinner  Feb 13

    Thanks for listening to “Back 2 tha Future.” Glad you enjoyed it, appreciate the comments. 😁

  • @ayehahmur  Feb 10

    Thanks for that comment on Six Strong Women, man. Aye, it was a particularly emotional send off for a wonderful woman.

  • @quork  Feb 9

    Re. Easybake Oven, that’s a great suggestion. That old lady watching has stuck with me all these years. Taking her perspective would make for an emotional song.

  • @dutch1967 Feb 9

    Brilliant is a bit of a stretch, I feel I can do much better on the bridge in Skid Row. But thank you for the very kind words, helps to know people are actually listening. Know that March, maybe even April will be spent honing, shaving, sawing, hacking, grinding the words on just about every song I post on here. It's more of a curse than a blessing.

  • @dutch1967 Feb 9

    Gonna try and top Never Been eitherway. May fail miserably, but to not try is not in my nature.

  • @crimulus  Feb 9

    hahaha Tres you crack me up "punch-never-thrown-line"

    Also, don't one-up my lyrics with your comments. lol It's not fair.

  • @sbs2018 Feb 8

    Thanks for your comments on “Candy Apple Red Shoes.”

  • @helenseviltwin  Feb 8

    Thanks for listening. Mandolin is a cheapy electric by Cozart, then stuck through a load of pedals.

  • @feeslip58  Feb 8

    Thank you for the nice comments about La la la.

  • @wobbiewobbit  Feb 8

    ooh bust and trussed is one i missed 😀 thanks for the listen.

  • @sbs2018 Feb 8

    Thanks so much for your comments on “I Wanna Go Home” and “Through the Looking Glass.”

  • @dutch1967 Feb 7

    Regarding The Breeze, I was thinking of slapping a capo on for the whole song. So, keep the feel of the chords but make myself sing it in a higher key. Turns out farther that 2nd fret is a no-go area for the chorus.
    I like your idea of modulation for the last verse, I'll try that!

  • @dutch1967 Feb 6

    Hi! Thanks so much for listening to The Breeze. I'm thinking of setting it to a different key just to spice up the vocals. To get more energy from the words... whatchu reckon?

  • @sbs2018 Feb 6

    Thanks for your comment on “Tequila Take Me Home.” 😆

  • @julesbf Feb 5

    Thanks for your comment on one world, don't know what a bVII is but glad it works.

  • @chipwithrow  Feb 5

    Gracias por escuchar a mi cancion en espanol!

  • @mkd  Feb 5

    Thanks for your comment on I remember when - that’s a relief re the melody!

  • @mishykatz  Feb 4

    Thank you for both comments and the reminder to tag my song!

  • @sbs2018 Feb 4

    Thanks for commenting on “I Want To.” So fun!

  • @mikeb Feb 4

    Thanks for commenting on '3000 Miles' - the verses are Bbm to Emajor, quite a challenge to adapt to an unusual pairing such as that - and not easy to play for an amateur keyboard player like myself!

  • @berni1954  Feb 4

    Thanks for giving my song "That dress she wore" a spin.

  • @mikeb Feb 4

    Thanks for the comment on my week 1 challenge song!

  • @audrey  Feb 4

    Thanks for listening and commenting on my song Birth. So glad you like it.

  • @dutch1967 Feb 4

    Hiya! Thanks for commenting on Play! Quick&Dirty, demostyle. I think I'll write two more verses for it to have get to 3 minutes. And die trying to record it. Rapping days are gone #outofbreath

  • @ayehahmur  Feb 4

    Hey, thanks for commenting on Memo. It's nice to get rolling at last.

    Hey thanks for listening in Tres! I always look forward to your comments, because you bring such good songwriter insights. Thanks for your thoughts. I wish I were 10% as good of a community benefit as you!

  • @toms  Feb 3

    De gustibus non est disputandum! 😀

  • @sunnymae  Feb 2

    Thanks for stoppin' by to listen to "Rise" Yes..it's very Wintery indeed. It being below zero up here and snow covered has lent itself to that atmospheric ambiance. I'm glad it worked for you.

  • @oaksnprairie  Feb 2

    My abalone is never phony?

  • @bee Feb 2

    Thanks for trying to tune in to my song. I cannot figure out the problem with Soundcloud for the life of me. Heres a link I copy/pasted into the URL but its not working on FAWM for some reason. https://soundcloud.com/elizabeth-hare...

  • @dutch1967 Feb 2

    Thank you so much for your feedback on New Year’s Day!

    Hi, thanks for checking out “Falling Down”. Glad you liked it. 😀

  • @moonshadow Feb 1

    Thx for your comment on my song, its much appreciated,
    i think your right about it needing a bridge, it would improve it,
    I'll probably try to write one for it later this year, thx

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 1

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 1

  • @pcob1993  Jan 31

    Oh dear, you are perfectly right, my apologies... I misunderstood the description I read... so glad I didn't try to get two octave above high B and E ..thank you and my best wishes to you for Fawm this year.

  • @dutch1967 Jan 30

    Only a couple days until FAWM19, hope to have you join the fun.
