So I guess this will be year 11 since I joined this site. My takeaway........this place has ruined my songwriting skills how can I ever dwell incessantly over words/phrases/syllables/notes/noises and that "perfect" recording for months/years or decades ever again.

My deepest sympathies to those that still do.

he/him/it/hey you whatever works, I've probably been called worse.

I prefer his excellency ;) but no one seems to be on board with that

(just kidding about the last one)

[avatar]

no new song posts from you in 2 weeks and no answers to my emails. are you ok?

[avatar]
@mctown

dropped an email to you..

[avatar]

sounds good, ill add the piano after receiving the files from you.

[avatar]

i did a vocal with the drum track. tried adding guitar chords and it sounded corny. do you think any slothcore adepts would like to contribute some noise to the track? if not, maybe i should bang out some lurching piano chaos, i sent a drum and vocals rough mix and vocal only tracks to your email

@toms

Thank you so much for the kind comment. Ever watched the Smart Studios story? That's where I was in the mid to late 80s, My drummer got in the movie and some others (not me), Phil and Mark were cooler than me anyway. 😀 Right at 1:32: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/139263

[avatar]

Hang in there. I hope Bandit is trying to stay cool as well. : )

[avatar]

i can play the drum track and have been rehearsing with it, but cannot download it. my email is bwhi51@yahoo.com

[avatar]

Feel better. I hear you on the heat.

[avatar]

thank you for the drum track. i am going to have fun working with this.

[avatar]

Hey! Hope you're alright. Haven't seen you much around the 50/90 hills lately.

[avatar]

thank you. no hurry on the drum track.

[avatar]

:) Thanks again.

@candle

Also, I have no idea what the semi-balding man was up to. That whole vocal bit was a sample from freesound.org So you know as much as I do 😄

@candle

Hey, you got all summer. 50/90 is the marathon, FAWM's the sprint, remember? 😉

Thanks for the comment on Slothy Thoughts. 😆 I'm sort of shocked I caught you with the last nap, but hey, I'll take it 😆

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

Thanks! As you know, provoking laughter is my main goal in life and if it comes with a side of catharsis that's even better. Recording that was indeed very therapeutic. That's funny that you'd say that about my guitar playing, because i was sort of trying to channel your style. I can't normally just cut loose and enjoy the noise like that, it was very liberating.

Excellent! Looking forward to hearing it. Go for it!

Ya I’m a fan of antiquated slang…like I take my coffee cowboy, it’s 23 skadoo

[avatar]

Okay, I was just told it was "agave gin," which made it a margarita.

[avatar]

Hey thanks again! Oh, I'll keep that in mind, to introduce a trashy note sometime this summer.

[avatar]

Thanks, man! For your comments. Cheers

@candle

Yeah, the pictures take the songs to the next level, imho…

p.s. glad you liked the result 😀

Just posted. I think you'll like the result.

Looks like we’re in a video collab group. I can play bass or guitar, do main or backing vocals, and I’m comfortable with mixing.

Don’t look to me for video editing though

[avatar]
@candle

Dropped those tracks into Buzz. Now I'm doing some alchemy. Will see what happens… I've got a bit of an idea, but I'm not sure how it'll turn out. You'll have to stay tuned 😉

Amp is a little Peavey Vypyr VIP1. It has about a dozen different amp voices and twice as many effects. Might be a gateway to a full-blown pedal addiction.

@candle

One o'these days I'm going to write a song where Am & Fmaj have no role. It is a lofty goal that my meagre mortal soul aspires to. However, I often feel as if it is a mountain I will never be able to climb…

Thank you, as always, for your womderful comment, Cody 😀

Yeah, it's a scary world, even up here in unarmed Canukastan. Would love to read your essay when you're done, if you don't mind sharing.

Thanks for the awesome comment!

@candle

You've still got a few on me, your excellency ;->

I always feel like I'm playing catch-up 😆

Loving what I've heard so far 😀

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

Thank you so much for your comment on „In your glow“. Yes, I remember talking to you about that nylon string guitar last fawm :D
The nord drum is indeed overwhelming. I see it more like a Synth that you can play with drumsticks. If you want to have simple drums, it’s too much.

[avatar]

Thx brotendo! You always know just what to say. Nice I got some tracks of yours to catch up on!!

[avatar]

Somebody compared me to Grace Jones in that song. Some kind of voodoo as somebody once said about his own vocals. Lol!

[avatar]

No kidding, Cody! Why do they insist on figuring things out for themselves? Well said! Gonna dive into your music next...have a happy songwriting season!

[avatar]

Eastern flavor… wonder if it was the “wooden keys” vst I was playing…

[avatar]

That's a pretty big limitation- you have to import from software. The USB addition is nice, but it broke compatibility with Vosyr (third party sample manager). For what you're wanting out of a sampler I'd recommend something from the MPC line, Circuit Rhythm, or Model:Samples. The Rhythm lets you record samples with a microphone and the MPC Live's have access to sources like Splice via Wi-Fi

[avatar]

Thanks for the comment! I’ve had a lot of fun with it, though connecting to other instruments is still frustrating. Using it with an e-kit hadn’t occurred to me, that’s intriguing!

[avatar]
@candle

Glad to hear you're feeling better. Hey, even the Muse needs some down time, otherwise they run dry on new ideas & you start regurgitating the shame stuff you've already created (or worse - you stop creating all together!). But there's noting like a community of like-minded artists leanign on each other for support & inspiration. And that's what makes FAWM & 50/90 so wonderful.

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]
@candle

Not sure where you could find one, but if you do, let me know, eh? ;->

Look at all of us inspiring each other ( @gardeningangel1 -> me -> you), all because of a default setting in the site's format. Go figure. That's what I love about FAWM & 50/90. Inspiration is let loose on the world & nobody has the power to hold it back.

Yeah, glad I could get the Strat all fixed up. Now I gotta finish cleaning up my front room 😆

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

Thank you for your comments on Never Chopped Cotton. I feel like I really missed out in a lot of ways.

@fuzzy

Thanx for the Comment!
As I've already told @Candle, those not-so-hard-working junior technicians have already been banished to the caverns beneath sub-level twenty to hunt down those pesky giant rats.

@candle

So if we're doing our traditional "let's see who posts more songs" competition, I think you might just have the upper hand this summer, my friend. Unlike in years past, the City has decided to keep the pool open for the summer (well, except for the maintenance down-time starting in two weeks when I'll be teaching swimming lessons at the local beaches (which most are currently flooded, but that's another story…)). As such, us Lifeguards aren't being laid off (as per usual) & I have to work this summer. First time in seven or eight years. Kinda sucks, but it is what it is. I'm going to try to post as much as I can, but it all depends on how much time the mundane eats into my creative moments. So, yeah… we'll just have to see how things go. So far, I'm behind by two tracks. LOL 😀 Going to get me those strings this afternoon & hopefully post something by the end of the night. At least, that's the hope.

Thanks for inspiring me, as always.

See You In The Shadows…

[avatar]

Yeah. Get your finger out and get some more stuff written! 😉

I'm lucky that I've had a "not busy with other stuff" week so far.
That changes tomorrow, but I have another track simmering on the DAW this evening.

[avatar]
@candle

Yeah, finally got everything sorted out on this end. Now I gotta go buy some new guitar strings. My strat's a little buggered at the moment LOL. So it might be a bit before I'm posting something. Love your Only Hurts tune. As someone with Juvenille Arthritis & back problems (as well as ghostly reminders of the shoulder injury I had last fall), I know the feeling all-too well LOL

See You In The Shadows…

@djtjb

Hey dzd! So pumped to hear what you got cooking this summer!

[avatar]

Thank you for your nice comment on my first track :)

[avatar]

Thank you, your Excellency, for your excellent comments on “Nasty Lies.” Yeah, sometimes that’s the only word for it - lol!

[avatar]

Thanks for your kind comments, sure! I would like to hear what you come with for Come and Get Me :)

[avatar]

@wacha

I'm taking a bit of a step back this year and I'll be getting a late start due to illness. I have a wicked sore throat and can't sing, among other things. I'm hoping to work on an instrumental or two this week while I recover.

[avatar]

Hey you!!!

[avatar]
@wacha

Hey, hey, looking forward to hearing you music again!

I'm scaling back some this year but would really love to work with you!

[avatar]

Me too!

Hello friend

*waves back with a huge smile * :D

[avatar]

Thats the spirit!

[avatar]

Hey yo, Cody, rock da place! Solid as a rock haha.

[avatar]

no, you :) !

[avatar]

I hear ya. My first few songs are going to be at best interesting train wrecks. So with that low expectation what could go wrong?

[avatar]

Hello! Hope you have an excellent 5090!

[avatar]

Hi Cody! Happy 5090!

[avatar]
@fuzzy

Nice, thanx for the heads up!!
Gonna be awesome!!

[avatar]

Let's do this! Like crazy corpses, morphs, and experimental stuff.

[avatar]

Good to see you here!

Hey man!
