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  2 weeks

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

  • @tamsnumber4  3 weeks

    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  4 weeks

    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  4 weeks

    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  4 weeks

    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  4 weeks

    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 4 weeks

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

  • @tamsnumber4  5 weeks

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

  • @sbs2018 5 weeks

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

  • @tiller2  5 weeks

    Thanks for your kind comments on "Sell Out"!

  • @kahlo2013  5 weeks

    Yes please crack away!!!!

  • @gwyn1234  5 weeks

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

  • @kahlo2013  5 weeks

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

  • @bjunker  5 weeks

    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 6 weeks

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

  • @crisp1  6 weeks

    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 6 weeks

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

  • @tamsnumber4  6 weeks

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

  • @kahlo2013  6 weeks

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

  • @arthurrossi 6 weeks

    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  6 weeks

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

  • @bjunker  6 weeks

    Thanks for listening to "if I forget you"!

  • @tabitha 6 weeks

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

  • @valeriecox  7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

    you have really gotten a lot done. congratulations!

  • @crisp1  7 weeks

    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 7 weeks

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

  • @kahlo2013  7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

    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!!!!

  • @deena  7 weeks

    Thanks for your kind message, Catherine.

  • @highmountain 7 weeks

    And thank you for coming back! 😀

  • @highmountain 7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

    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  8 weeks

    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  8 weeks

    Thank you. 😀

  • @musicsongwriter  8 weeks

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

  • @moonraccoon  8 weeks

    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 8 weeks

    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  8 weeks

    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  8 weeks

    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  8 weeks

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

  • @crisp1  8 weeks

    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  8 weeks

    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  8 weeks

    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
