Val Cox 28


Texas US   Jan 2007  

Artist Bio

Influences:   Everything. I mostly play rock, country, folk and blues.

Hello FAWM world inhabitants. It really does feel a little other worldly here, doesn't it? May your creativity abound as you unleash your songs upon the world! πŸ™‚
Here's what I play on my demos
Me: Guitars, Bass, Vocals. Things I may attempt to play, but kinda suck at: drums, piano, sax.

Artificial Creative Unit: Drums that sound good (Addictive Drums), keyboards/synths and anything else you hear
I made a playlist of Spotify FAWMers. Give me your spotify link and I'll add you too. It's a freaking great playlist. Y'all rock!

    Thanks for the comment on Simple as a Kiss, demo is up!!

  • @rickamorphis  Mar 3

    I know you've remarked on my castanets playing in the past and now you've highlighted my tambourine prowess, so I thank you mightily! I like to add one new piece of percussion each year if I year I'm planning a concerto for guiro, finger cymbals, and claves, budget permitting. But seriously thanks for your comments...and I look forward to digesting your output very shortly. πŸ˜€

  • @danvaillancourt  Mar 2

    Many thanks for listening Val. It is so nice to have you back again this year. I should let you know that I decided I should drag my drums up and try the one-mic technique after hearing your 57 challenge, so thanks for that. πŸ˜‰ Congrats on another year!

  • @chrishope Mar 1

    cos thats exactly what it is! ..thank you for putting it perfectly and listening

  • @rbarreda Mar 1

    Hey Val... thanks for the comment on my song from a couple of days ago. Really means a lot coming from you. Mwah!

  • @angelinapowersuit Mar 1

    Thanks so much for your feedback on "Ugliness." Hoping I can add more dynamics to it somehow. . . and congrats on 28 songs! UhMAZing!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 28

    1 more to go to double FAWM! You have a boatload or really awesome songs this year!!!!!

  • @calumcarlyle  Feb 28

    Hi Val, in case you're interested, that tuning I used is D G D F# B D

    I had thought that somebody had suggested it in the Keith Richards tuning thread in the forums, but now I check, I'd misremembered it, so it's not the same one they were talking about at all!

  • @dragondreams  Feb 28

    Hi Val, and thank you. πŸ˜€
    That amp has been two years in the design and build stage. I "think" I've finally got THE amp for the DD sound... until the next one! πŸ˜‰
    Congratulations on the win too! πŸ˜€

  • @majordanby  Feb 28

    Thanks for listening to We Can’t Work It Out. I’m not great at writing a cohesive narrative, just lots of ideas. Probably influenced by the news, current affairs and cultural stuff mixed with real life.

  • @davewermers Feb 28

    I'm glad you liked "Your Lyin' Tongue". I appreciate the listen and comment.

  • @hoppiern  Feb 27

    And now your comment made ME teary-eyed. We make quite a pair. Thanks so much for listening and my sincere condolences on the loss of your Mom 5 years ago πŸ’œ

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 27

    Thanks for your comments! They mean the world to me coming from someone with your musical knowledge and brilliance! And yeah, while my lyrics were stimulated by thoughts about things going on at work, I tried to make them universal enough to apply to any relationship as what matters in the end are those human connections we have and how advance love and peace. Those relationships trump all.

  • @auditasum Feb 27

    I have a few percussion implements. For some reason I thought I needed a drum kit track on "Goodnight Harvest," but I could maybe tambourine it.

  • @barbara  Feb 27

    I'm really happy my song resonated so well and touched something in you. Thanks for letting me know and for giving me a little shower of enthusiasm!

  • @boyatheart  Feb 27

    Wow Val, you've had an epic FAWM! Congrats on such a formidable win!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 27

    Ohhhhh ... 14+14=28.... taking back any congratulations extended but instead sending words of encouragement as I know you will get there!!!’ And you have a very impressive play list this FAWM. Your music is sounding better than ever!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 27

    Congrats on making your double FAWM goal!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 26

    Thanks Val. My Mom was a great cook. So much I miss. Her pies... Now I am hungry!

  • @madeline Feb 25

    Thanks for your sweet note on "Stunned and Unraveled." I hope to share more of the music once I have a few more written. Trying to keep my eye on the prize and all that good stuff. πŸ˜€

  • @auditasum Feb 23

    All lesbians love Indigo Girls! It's the law.

  • @srcoops Feb 21

    Thanks for your comments on Food. My wife can't take me anywhere. She likes Flaming Mango and I like Bubba's Barbeque.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 21

    Thanks, Val.

  • @spinhead Feb 20

    Re: gratitudeβ€”some days, I'd wake up alone and cold in a gutter πŸ˜‰

    Most days, I think, I'd have nearly everything. Thanks for the perceptive comment on "Gifts."

  • @cindyrella  Feb 20

    Thanks. You are having an amazing year! We will see if someone else has the time.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 20

    Hey Val, was wondering if you might be interested in the song You Didn't Hear Me Again that we just posted? We need a female voice.

  • @cherok40  Feb 19

    Thank you for your kind comment on the 10x10. I love that funk groove as well. πŸ˜€

  • @suzimuzi Feb 19

    Hi Val, thanks for commenting on my Geometry song. It's great to get positive feedback from a someone who writes really good lyrics. Many thanks...

  • @kadmad202 Feb 19

    Thank Val, for listening to and sharing a comment on I Can See Clearer Now. We gently share these songs of ours and hope that they can mean something to someone. Cheers!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 18

    Thanks, Val, for the kind comment on my raccoon song! Your comments mean the world to me!

  • @zecoop  Feb 18

    Thanks... I think I was born to be a Foley artist! πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the listen and comment on 'Indifferent Rose', much appreciated!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 14

    Uh... I think it is just you! 🀣

  • @kevinemmrich  Feb 14

    Merry Valentine's Day! Yea, I am a slacker this time around. I have been involved with learning new technologies and it has spilled over into FAWM. The good news is that the stuff I am working on is a lot of fun. I do have one lyric done and I hope to do a few songs this weekend!

  • @hanke7 Feb 13

    Thank you

  • @wacha  Feb 13

    Thanks for the kind words on "Prelude to a Kiss"!

  • @aflinner  Feb 13

    Thanks for listening to β€œIt’s Too Cold (Take Off Your Coat).” Glad you enjoyed it, appreciate the comments. 😁

  • @ceilidh  Feb 12

    Glad you enjoyed FAWMsong! Now which shelf should we dust off for our Grammy? πŸ˜€

  • @quork  Feb 12

    Thank you for your kind thoughts. Yes, it was definitely cathartic, and hopefully a standing reminder to breathe and be empathetic.

  • @ferry0123 Feb 11

    Heya Valerie, and thanks for checking out mine. I'm pleased with your comment πŸ˜€

  • @zxcvbnm  Feb 11

    Thanks for your comment on my BiaB effort, simple bubblegum song, but I have a LOT to learn. πŸ˜€

  • @ceilidh  Feb 11

    Thanks for your comment on Tai-ing Chi! Hope it can inspire you for your meditation song. Regarding Coca Cola, please check out my "FAWMsong" parody. You can play Ringo and sing my lyrics against the Beatles for grins! We're all gonna have Grammies, right???

  • @fourzeroes  Feb 11

    It's only block characters! You can copy and paste and make your own if you want πŸ˜€

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 2019

    Thanks for listening and commenting on my song "Tempting Time", I really appreciate it!!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 2019

    I can hear your voice on it! Go for it!

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 2019

    Re-sent to new email addy.
    Hope you got it

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 2019

    Sent this morning
    Has your email changed?
    I clicked on the email in your profile

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 2019

    Hi Val
    Sent you an email if that is still your email addy at yahoo

  • @cindyrella  Feb 2019

    Thanks Val. Yes, I think I probably made it overly Irish! πŸ˜€

  • @wacha  Feb 2019

    Thanks for the comment on "Mallory's Lament". Mickey and Mallory Knox are the main characters in "Natural Born Killers" which is one of my favorite movies. They have a complete destructive but amazing love that is doomed from the start.

  • @candle  Feb 2019

    Thanks for your great comment on Forgiveness. The process is a lot of fun, one that I want to continue to explore. I dream of having my guitar trigger a whole rach of virtual synths & sounds. I just have to get around to making it work the way I want it to. As for the monks, that is a very wise practice. In fact, that's essentially what Philosophers do (I majored in Philosophy at university - that's why i work as a Lifeguard/Swimming Instructor at a pool LOL). Again, thank you for stopping by & having a listen.

    See You In The Shadows…

  • @lain Feb 2019

    Thank you so much for you comment on "30 seconds" πŸ˜€

  • @danvaillancourt  Feb 2019

    It is always great to have you back another year Val!

  • @atitlan  Feb 2019

    I think some Spotify links have fallen foul of the link truncation in the forum. Maybe this will survive

  • @audrey  Feb 2019

    Thank you for the kind words about my song Birth. They're appreciated.

  • @wacha  Feb 2019

    Thank you for your feedback on "With all of Your Might". Of everything I've done so far I feel that is one of the most shaky ones that may need some work. Getting such lovely feedback really makes me feel better about it.

  • @beesmusic Feb 2019

    Hi @valeriecox thanks very much for your comment on the song 75x. Powerfully sad, it's true, but good to get it out! Thanks again and have a great FAWM!

  • @wacha  Feb 2019

    Thank you for comment on "Get Yourself Together".

    I googled how to emulate a bass in reaper and fooled a few of my musician friends with the trick so I decided it really worked. I usually use my hollow body guitar because I feel like ti give it a fuller more bassy sound but I didn't feel like pulling her out this morning and ran with the squire. The only challenge (other than my lacing bass skills) is I do that in the DAW so I have to imagine what it will sound like dropped down and hope for the best when I'm recording.

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2019

    Hey Val. 😊😎
    Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed the trip back to the eighties. More to come. πŸ˜‰

  • @fourzeroes  Feb 2019

    It only ended up being programmed because I couldn't seem to get a good take on the bass guitar... πŸ˜€

  • @jmadison  Feb 2019

    Wow Valerie, glad you liked my mando blues. πŸ˜€ I'm off to check out your first fruits....

  • @jorh Feb 2019

    Thankyou for your comments - looking forward to seeing what else you produce!

  • @shutyatrap  Feb 2019

    Thanks for your comment regarding my Columbia space shuttle crash song. It’s must have been mind blowing seeing this occur, I am happy to hear I captured something authentic out of this tragic event. xxx

  • @cindyrella  Feb 2019

    Thanks for your comments. I will keep trying to get it down!

  • @helenseviltwin  Feb 2019

    You're right. I should turn that vocal *way* down

  • @cindyrella  Jan 2019

    Hi Val! Let's have some fun!

  • @cindyrella  Jan 2019

    Hi Val! Let's have some fun!

  • @rickamorphis  Jan 2019

    Hiya there Val...our collab/duet is 10 yrs old this month...I may have to remix it again for the 100th time! Actually I may want to put some of my '09 songs up on bandcamp later this year...I'll ask your permission when the time comes. For now have a great FAWM ol' buddy!
