I am currently recording everything on a TASCAM DP-008EX and then importing it into Reaper.

All of my acoustic songs are done on my Tanglewood acoustic guitar though occasionally I will use my Yamaha Guitalele. For my softer, dreamier electric stuff I use my Tangelwood hollow body guitar. For the the more aggressive electric I will use my Fender Squire Strat.

I play some cajon so that appears from tiem to time as does the shaker and tambourine.

I did get a new ukulele and a stylaphone which may or may not make it onto a recording.

    Thanks very much for your lovely comment on “Whenever I Look at You”!

  • @ceilidh  Mar 13

    Thank you for your feedback on Carnelian Carnival! Stay Well!

  • @tamsnumber4  Mar 10

    I'm so glad you are still here, I never would have kept up with this output during FAWM, I do want to listen and will try to get back in from time to time!!

  • @audrey  Mar 5

    Thank you for taking the time to listen and make such the kind comments on 3 of my songs. I appreciate it. Hope you had a great FAWM 😀

  • @dzd  Mar 4

    Thanks! That little improv opened up a big can of worms I'd been trying to keep the lid on, not sure if it's a good or bad thing yet 😀

  • @bjunker  Mar 3

    Hey Catherine -- if you ever want to play together, at the perk & brew, or elsewhere (even just noodling on a porch!), let me know. Would be fun! (and maybe we could start a post-fawm party tradition in the 'burgh!

  • @matthew62  Feb 29

    After listening to a couple of your fine songs and noticing your influences, I wanted to recommend, in case you aren't already familiar, giving Mary Gauthier a listen (particularly the Mercy Now cd). Your stuff reminds me a bit of hers. She's recently become one of my favorite songwriters.

  • @medievil Feb 29

    Thank you for your feedback. Very appreciated. Amazing output you have.

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 25

    Thank you for commenting on my collab song "Kiss Me Again", I appreciate it!

  • @sbs2018 Feb 24

    Thanks for your comment on “Tonight I Won’t Be Sleeping.” So thoughtful of you!

  • @tiller2  Feb 24

    Thanks for your kind comments on "Sell Out"!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 22

    Yes please crack away!!!!

  • @gwyn1234  Feb 22

    Cheers for your response...much appreciated...

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 22

    You are too kind. Seriously! But I did truly appreciate your nice comment on Salvation!

  • @bjunker  Feb 20

    Thanks for your kind words on "Only For A Minute"! I tried to make it vivid but not completely specific, at the same time.

  • @sbs2018 Feb 19

    Thanks for your comment on “Treat You Right.” So thoughtful.

  • @crisp1  Feb 18

    Hey, congratulations on so many songs! You busy! I wanted to tell you that Mysteries of Pittsburgh is, of course, set in Pittsburgh so you'd get a kick out of all the mentions of places you know, including the incline you wrote about. I don't know if you enjoy fiction but it's really well written with very compelling characters and the author wrote it at 25 or so but he seems like an old soul -- in a good way.

  • @sbs2018 Feb 18

    Thanks for your comment on “Hooked.” I so appreciate it.

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 17

    Thank you for your kind comments on my song, "Wash Me Clean"!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 16

    You are having such a wonderfully productive FAWM! So many wonderful songs!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 15

    Hey Catherine! I would like to thank you sooooo much for the gorgeous country-song you created for "Three words"! I absolutely LOVE it! Enjoyed your guitar play and awesome vocal delivery! The tune is gorgeous and memorable, and the chorus… wow! I also like how you sing the "I´m in love with you"-part. Thank you very, very much!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 15

    Thanks so much Catherine! So sexy and I love it!

  • @bjunker  Feb 15

    Thanks for listening to "if I forget you"!

  • @tabitha Feb 14

    Hey, Catherine, I just wanted to say thank you for your lovely comment on Fragment.

  • @valeriecox  Feb 11

    Ok, so you have the harmonica low in the mix and I'm listening at low really volume at work, so that's how I missed the harmonica. Makes sense. I'm sure I'll hear at all the next bayou party though. See you there! 😀

  • @carleybaer  Feb 11

    Hey there! Sorry for the radio silence, I was out of town at a songwriting retreat, but I'm back now. Shoot me an email at carley {at} carleybaer {dot} com and we can get the ball rolling. 😀

  • @tsunamidaily  Feb 10

    thank you for commenting on the god whisperer.
    you have really gotten a lot done. congratulations!

  • @crisp1  Feb 9

    Wow, I see you've been busy, too. Got some listening to do! Thanks for your comment on If You Want. Did that scan like a blues to you?

  • @arthurrossi Feb 9

    Thanks so much for your kind comment on "Three words"! I would be very happy about it! 😀

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 8

    PS when you have a chance will you add me as a collaborator for woman to woman so it also pops up on my page? Thanks!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 8

    Hey, thank you, Catherine! I so appreciate your wonderful music that brings the lyric to life! Love the shaker and the movement with the guitar strum! So grateful!!!!

  • @quork  Feb 8

    Thanks for listening and commenting, Catherine, I hope you’re well.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 7

    I would like to thank you soooooooo much for your wonderful and that kind comment!

  • @nahlej381  Feb 7

    Thx for the where's the stylaphone!?

  • @hmorg  Feb 7

    Thanks for the comment on "Window of Night", much appreciated!

  • @blackrose1313 Feb 7

    Thank you for reviewing my song!

  • @valeriecox  Feb 7

    Hello hello! There is simply not enough wah guitar in the world. 😝

  • @slosilver Feb 7

    You are a FAWM superstar!

  • @deena  Feb 7

    Thanks for your kind message, Catherine.

  • @highmountain Feb 6

    And thank you for coming back! 😀

  • @highmountain Feb 6

    Thank you for stopping by! The link wasn't broken. A technical error forced me to swiftly replace the recording with a better one. That is now done!

  • @scubed  Feb 6

    Thanks som much for your kind words on “Summer Heat Blues”! @bradbrubaker gets the credit for the Summer/Winter framework - I kept those lines from Brad’s “Summer Heat” when I morphed his song.

  • @srcoops  Feb 6

    Thanks for your kind comments on Senior Cards. I live in a retirement center where it's Bridge on Monday and Euchre on Friday. We use a block with the suits on the sides to keep straight what has been bid.

  • @crisp1  Feb 6

    Thanks for all your recent comments, Catherine. FAWM really inspires me like crazy. I'm working on something for you -- I'm not totally sure I know what I'm saying in it, but I like the hook. Promise to get it to you within 48 hours.

  • @jamkar  Feb 5

    Thank you. 😀

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 5

    You are very welcome Catherine. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment on Focus.

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 3

    Thanks, Catherine. I like that the haunting feeling of the guitar is translating, given the subject matter of In the Silence.

    It's good to see you back, too. Here's to a productive FAWM 😀

  • @kraftec Feb 3

    Thanks for the comment on my song, I've already got vocals planned for that one but I've got others in the works that I'd love to hear your take on 😀

  • @tiller2  Feb 3

    I appreciate your comments on "Play With Me." I'm so glad of the serendipity of skirmishing with a good prompt, which brought forth a tiny but valuable memory.

  • @tiller2  Feb 3

    Hey friend, how could you possibly have so many songs already! 😀 Seems unnecessary to wish you a great FAWM, but I will anyway. Cheers.

  • @writeandwrong  Feb 3

    Sure, go for it 😀 Thanks for your kind comments on "Like A Ghost."

  • @crisp1  Feb 3

    Catherine, if you'll give me a few days, I'll try to come up with a lyric that I will send to you with the first right of refusal!

  • @cherok40  Feb 3

    Hi Catherine,
    I will try.. but no promises.. if i don't feel it is right for the lyrics .. I will cancel the project. It is great that you want to sing! 😀

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 3


  • @cindyrella  Feb 3

    Go for it! Thanks

  • @slosilver Feb 2

  • @metalfoot  Jan 20

    Well enough (oversharing alert incoming...) I was in a car accident on Thursday and I'm physically OK but still mentally dealing and processing that my car with 19 payments remaining on it might be dead... LOL

  • @jamkar  Jan 17

    Hi Catherine! Looking forward to hearing your beautiful creations.
