Houlet 14


  Jan 2015


Artist Bio

Influences:   Folk, country, Scottish, & Irish. Kris Kristofferson, Tom Paxton, James Tayor, Bert Jansch, Pentangle, etc.

Very basic acoustic/folk style guitarist who can almost sing. Completed the Pat Pattison Songwriting course and was active in Week 7 before it sort of folded. Now a member of http://www.patpatpro.com which runs all year and new active members are always welcome.

This my fifth FAWM and I hope to do better than last year. I bought Band in a Box last year and upgraded in January. I may have other Real Life commitments this year but I'll do my best..

    Congratulations Tom, you made it to 14, well done. Lots of good writing in there.

  • @tootoobee  Feb 28

    Congrats Tom, you made it!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @francessmith  Feb 27

    ...........though you would have to have it practised to perfection, so maybe that imaginary audience is just going to have to wait.

  • @francessmith  Feb 27

    That's a shame, but the geography is what the geography is, but there is a folk club audience out there somewhere just waiting for a song like that!

    Thanks for your comment Tom. Bill liked it, so I did an "improved" version for him, and in that the midi arrangement really escaped and ran away! I'll have to tame the song a bit for the Album Production Challenge. As artists go, I'm still a long long way from feeling in control of my tools!

    Muchas Gracias . Thankyou so
    Much for listening and commenting on my Spanish flamenco song โ€˜Si , se puede โ€˜. I really appreciate it !

  • @audrey  Feb 15

    Thanks for the comment. So glad you like my song Earthrise. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @cactuspie Feb 13

    You went a completely different direction than thought it would! And It cracked me up! Very funny and clever!

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 12

    Thanks for the comment on Jokes at Scale. I decided to publish my tabs during my 1st FAWM last year. I like the idea of them being instructional for novice players (hope that doesn't sound too immodest).

    "..replacing the word Kids, I think I will make it a real country song by using dogs instead. ๐Ÿ˜€"

    That's it That's the perfect line!

  • @wwalbrun Feb 10

    Hi Tom!! Great to hear from you. These FAWM songs I've done are the first in couple years. Still, it's good to kick it back into gear. Have a great FAWM.

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 10

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

  • @jcooper  Feb 9

    Thanks for the encouraging comment on my fake it song. Metalfoot specifically asked that we not tag him as collaborator on this one. I think he was worried some people would think he was only after collabs by posting the challenge๐Ÿ˜€

  • @paulharrison  Feb 2019

    Thanks for the encouraging comments!

  • @paulharrison  Feb 2019

    Thanks for trying to listen to my song! It should play okay now.

  • @francessmith  Feb 2019

    Thanks for the comment on Gibraltar Hill. Your 8 pm skirmish was super successful, well done for coming up with the idea, and organising it.

    I've written a time song for the theme, but my skirmish brain doesn't work any more, and I just can't do them, but it will appear in a few days.

  • @hazzard Feb 2019

    Lol! I'm my own FAWM police! thanks for your comment on "counting on you!"

  • @sbs2018 Feb 2019

    Thanks for your comment for โ€œOn the Brink.โ€ Much appreciated!

  • @audrey  Feb 2019

    And thanks also for commenting on Birth. It's my personal favourite too. So glad you like it. I don't know how, but that one came quickly to me, which is very unusual, in my case. I usually experience a little FAWM envy at how fast people in here can write music. Maybe I'm slowly catching up. lol

  • @audrey  Feb 2019

    Thanks for listening and for the kind words on my song "Something Wicked this Way Comes. I appreciate it.

  • @francessmith  Feb 2019

    Hello Tom, thanks for your comment on my song, yes, with a bit of practice that could be quite a nice song, wish I was a bit more disciplined with the practice thing!

    Are we going to have a song from you soon?

  • @jcooper  Feb 2019

    Hi Tom. Thanks for your comments on my song. Have a good fawm

  • @audrey  Jan 2019

    Hi Tom. Hope you have a great FAWM! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Back again! Hope you have a good time with FAWM this year.

  • @francessmith  Jan 2019

    Hello Tom, good to hear you've committed to Band in a box, look forward to hearing your songs in fawm, and generally just bumping into you around the place.
