Thanks for listening to my songs "One Kiss", "Blue Snow", "I Am Frankenstein", "Something Dark", "Start Walking in Your Dreams' and "Amelia" and my collab songs "Tears at Midnight", and "Where I Want You / By My Side", I appreciate it!!
Thanks for commenting!
Thanks for all the great songs. I actually have The Drop ready to play in its own tab, but I'm going for a jog right now. Parasol will never be unlocked. I wrote it and needed it for the "win," but it wasn't working. I'll probably scrap it and strip it for parts, meaning that it will reappear in July 😀
Thank you for your lovely comment on Birds <3
I was listening to some of In The Tangerine Light tonight. Really enjoy the vibe of those tracks. I think they are still my favorite from you, perhaps bias since they were the first ones I heard. But it was nice to put on. I couldn't decide if it was winter, summer, night or morning mood music! So maybe it's all of that.
Thanks (again) for your kind comment! 😀
You should maybe add him instead of me, since he did most of the work. 😀
I think at FAWM you can only have one collaborator. 😞
Thanks for commenting on my song!
Wow. I was not expecting such a comment on "Kill the Fatted Calf"! I'm honored!
I've just seen your comment about a collab. That sounds great, I'll give it a try.
Thanks for your lovely comments on Sandcastles. I would love to hear Sandy Denny sing it! When I've got a time machine...
Your comments made my day 😀
I appreciate your comments and insight on "Haphazard Serenade"! Rundgren doesn't get his due!!
Hey! I managed to get the music for Sandcastles down, with a mistake, but I've posted it for the sake of getting more songs done. Just looking at your influences, I'm mad for Sandy Denny, Richard Thompson and Nick Drake. They are the best!
Thanks for listening! I appreciate it!
Thank you for your kind comment on 'Sandcastles', I've been trying to record it all day, it's driving me mad! I keep playing wrong chords. It's coming though! Going to try again later
all that witch / leopard / demn imagery is real. that was my mother. she saved her little town from hell's redevelopment brigade. by transforming into a leopard and scaring demons back to the pit who tried to buy her out.
You are a wonder!
I aspire to like you SM!
Right on, I have some other collabs that need my vocals right now so I know how it gets haha. When the time is right it's right!
Thanks so much for your lovely comment on Cyril's Millions! I am a big Wodehouse fan 😊 I mean to put more piano on it but my hands were too cold, it's minus 3 here! Your encouragement is much appreciated 🙏
Thanks for listening and saying nice things!
Hey, I changed the title to remove the ampersand; they don't work here at FAWM, which is unfortunate.
he low E is lowered to a low A,,the A is lowered to E..th d anf g srings are tuned to a, The string is raised to hgh EE and the E string is raised to high A,..............or something close to that... the two bass strngs are A ad E the middle chordlal dtrons are an A drone..the the top strings for melody are an E and an a
Hey Scott, thanks for your comment! It must have been a piano somewhere halfway that I know of, or otherwise a marimba will have made its appearance in the song without me knowing it or saying so 😏
I recorded a track this morning and just emailed you it. Let me know if you think it works!
thanks for your Mr F thoughts - i'm hoping to get some music onto it, but not sure what, it's not my normal song, so I thought pop, but angry might work too as per your suggestion!
Hi thanks for your comment on my song. Tuning is open D. 😀
Checking your list out tomorrow!
Thanks for listening to my Give me Peace track - marimba yes! That was the word I was looking for!
I'm trying to come up with something for the next Lester's Wicked Kiss tune. Lately I've also been enjoying this old cheesy video where the guy took a so-so 80's Gene song from Asylum and mixed it up with some 70's classics and made it sound pretty awesome.
I'm thinking a pretty straight forward riffing song like that would be good.
Thank you for the lovely comments on my song! I am looking at your list of already submitted songs. One a day - Wow!!! I am impressed! Looking forward to checking them out!
Hey, thanks so much for taking the time to comment on Fixer Upper. I have to admit that no matter what I do in music 70s singer songwriters are so wound into my DNA I'll never be free of them, so sometime you just have to let them do what the do!
Haha yeah I imagine it being a fast track with some comedic vocals, I would do it but I haven't got a clue about banjo! hehe 😀 cheers for your comment!
Thanks so much for the feedback on "So Long" Scott! I really enjoyed your first song and looking forward to hearing more!
Hey! Looking forward to whatever your doing this time around - always good to hear your music 😀
Hi TG. That album plan sounds terrific. Have a great Fawm, please.
And what fantastical notions have you been dreaming friend?? I can't wait to come back for a listen!!
I'll be looking forward to your beautiful lunacy, as always
I'm looking forward to hearing your musical weirdness!!
Maybe if it's in the cards Lester's Wicked Kiss can have the third song this FAWM.
