πŸ˜€ Good one!!

[avatar]

Thanks Patty, I still feel like I am struggling a little with ideas though πŸ˜… πŸ˜• πŸ™ƒ

@nadine

You're welcome you do good stuff!

[avatar]

im no beatles expert either. thats just the way i heard it. i dont think david was employing one style or another. i feel thats just the way it came out of him.

[avatar]

Cool Patty I'm checking out the "I Hate Love"s now :-)
Re: S&G I took a look online to see what folks might encounter if they looked it up and hadn't known the books. The Wikipedia entry is underwhelming. However, I found this rather cool video that not only reads the book, but does neat video and soundbed things dwelling on the art itself.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gpc1LXl90Rs
I watched the whole thing through and was glad I did. I had these books in the 90's but they made it onto the giveaway pile at some point. I'd forgotten the part that says, "You can't dismiss a Muse at will." Something for me to remember when FAWMing seems to drag or be heavy :-)
Cheers!

@andrea

Thanks for reading my skirmish lyrics The Worst in You. You are very kind! I do enjoy writing about dark things. They have a dramatic feeling that I like.

[avatar]

Haha! I need you to be my editor. You were right about light bulbs coming on rather than going off. I will need to fix that before it hits the Top 40! πŸ˜€

@jeff9

Thanks again, Patty, for the lift of your kind words. Glad you enjoyed how the number with Andrea's I'm Always on the Defense turned out.

[avatar]
@oswlek

Thanks for giving "Tea" a listen, Patty, and for your heartfelt comment. It means a lot.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thanks, Patty, for checking out @cindyrella and my little number and thanks for your encouraging comments.

[avatar]

Thank you, Patty! It's been very fun for me to collab with other writers--I would have never dreamt of writing such confident bar chat and what's funny is my "character" singing really enjoyed it :) I'm going to catch up on yours soon!

[avatar]

thanks Patty re the comment on my latest

[avatar]
@nadine

Thanks for your kind words on "The Wind". I'm glad you enjoyed and I hope we can make it final someday. I like the melody, but I'm not a fan of my vocals.

[avatar]

You are very welcome Patty. It is lovely to hear your collaborations. Thank you for all your kind support.

[avatar]

A great write that one Patty, very nice.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thanks, Patty, for listening in and commenting on Geoff's and my I Can't Take Goodbyes. Always grateful for your encouraging words.

[avatar]

Thanks for checking out & commenting on Hammerhead.
Yes, you're right. Those lines capture the essence of what the main character in the write needs to know.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Aw, shucks. Thank you, ma'am.

[avatar]

Thanks Patty, TBH I've been struggling a little with lack of ideas for about a week, I listened to a few Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge songs at the weekend and that opened the tap a little

[avatar]
@andrea

Thanks for checking out It's Summer. You are very sweet.

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thank you, thank you, dear girl, for your generous and sweet words about Summertime is the Best Time. Such a fun project and I'm pretty tickled with how it came out. Glad you liked!

[avatar]

You know I just realized it is written from the male perspective so you have an excellent point. I was so captivated by the structure I did not even notice. I will let David take this one as I now agree it would be better with a male voice the way it is written. Thanks!!

@gm7

Thx Patty. You having a great 5090...it's fun, isn't !

[avatar]

Thanks Patty, glad you liked Oblivion

@esc4p3

Awww, thank you *blushes*

[avatar]

Thank you for your comment on Wicked Wild World. Those were really strong lyrics to work with, glad you enjoyed the result πŸ˜„

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on 'Be Alive', it was an interesting experiment using the keyboard rhythm.

[avatar]

Thanks for all your very nice comments. I like your lyrics a lot! I don't really get involved on the collab side of 50/90 but I will enjoy continuing to see yours now that I've got you on my watchlist.

[avatar]

Thank you for listening!

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thanks, Patty. Glad you remembered Not To Live a Lie. I definitely changed some key lines, partly based on some your input back then, so it’s officially an update.

[avatar]

Thank you for the listens and comment, much appreciated!

[avatar]
@andrea

Thanks, Patty, for your thoughtful comments. I always appreciate your support :)

[avatar]

I appreciate that! 4 a’s is the magic number…;)

[avatar]
@panch

Thanks so much for your comments on Welcome to the world Billy. We feel very blessed, he's grandchild number 3. And thanks for all your other comments, they mean a lot and are greatly appreciated.

[avatar]

thanks for the feedback on 'At Midnight' - i wasnt going to share it, because i think the piano is so 'stale' but im glad i did now :)

[avatar]

Hi Patty, you asked about private messaging and Slack. Private messaging is not available, see https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/forums/84 . However, there is a Slack instance that we can use: https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/forums/59 . Slack is a chat tool, similar to WhatsApp and the likes. You can create an account for free there, and there are apps for using it on different devices. There is a #general channel where people meet up to chat about everyday and fun stuff. You can also send direct messages to people there. Plus, it’s possible to create own channels there to discuss things in a group.

[avatar]

You are very welcome, Patty. It is truly amazing to collaborate with Kate. She is very talented and creative and her vision for the lyrics is amazing. Your lyrics were of inspiration to Kate and both of you made this magical song happen. Thank you both very much. It was wonderful to hear your collaborative work.

[avatar]

i npow kate did all the vocals. that is why i completmented her on it.

[avatar]

Thanks for your comments on "Look Sharp"!

@jeff9

Thanks for checking out "Second Time Round", Patty. Praise on lyrics from a writer like yourself is highly valued and I'm sure @cicpisces is glowing.

[avatar]
@phlex

Thanks for the lovely comment! @asterix is doing the main vocal, and @bettyhammer is doing the whisper vocal!

[avatar]

Thanks for your kind comment on the lyrics to 'Do you know what you didn't need?'. Here's the song with music: https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/1636

@nadine

Thank you!

[avatar]

Thanks Patty, I'm really enjoying 50/90 this year, my life is stressful just now and this outlet is great for me.

[avatar]

Hey and thanks for commenting on my writes . Enjoy reading and listening to your lyrics and songs too.

[avatar]

Thanks for your comment on Cowbell Swing. πŸ˜€ Being new to fawm, I took some time to check out the customs and traditions and found that every committed fawmer musician should probably at some point or other perform a cowcore and slothcore song. πŸ˜‰

[avatar]

Thank you for your kind comment in the Lyrics to My son

[avatar]

Thanks Patty for your comments, your approval means a lot to me, BTW you are putting a stellar shift in yourself here :-)

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on my collab with Geoff!

[avatar]

Hi, thanks for your lovely words about Nothing Special, it's means a lot!

[avatar]

Truly appreciate the words on Improvisation 1, thank you so much! It means a lot. :)

[avatar]
@mikeb

Thanks for the listen and comment on 'Lonely City'!

[avatar]
@fuzzy

Thanx for the note.
Yeah, I do have a lot of fun in my underground bunker!

[avatar]

Thank you for your comment on" Joplinesque." Lots of things are easy to do when you know how. I just got done watching the baseball home run derby, and those guys make it look super easy even though I know it's no such thing.

[avatar]

Thank you for you kind comments Patty

[avatar]

Thank you for your comments, much appreciated.
Cheers

[avatar]
@kristi

Thank you for your comments on my lyrics! It's always great to hear which lines resonate with others!

[avatar]
@jeff9

Thank you so much, Patty, for the very kind comments about I'm Not Sick.

There are so many talented lyricists here, @stephenwordsmith and yourself certainly included, that I keep just wanting to put these wonderful things to music and sing them that I can't seem to get around to composing any lyrics myself quite yet. Hoping to get off the schneid on that shortly.

[avatar]

Something to look forward to! :)

[avatar]

i prefer romance to love. just standinbg at a bus stop , waitng for the bus with someone you like can feel cool. whe people fall in lovee, they act goony.and it can be obnoxious dealing with that imposed emotion. im writing a song now called love is a promise. which can be either a good or a bad thing, but its preferable to abstract feelings that force everyone into role playing wich they eventually resent.

[avatar]

Thanks for your kind comments, Patty!! I really appreciate your feedback :) We will need to do a #TwinProfilePic collab challenge before the summer ends. No need for a distortion pedal. We can do whatever we both decide! What do you say?

[avatar]

Thank you for all the comments, and I'm glad you're enjoying my gallery of unusual instruments! Instruments such as the taishogoto and the piano dulcimer didn't take me too long to learn to play because I already played similar instruments or instruments laid out in similar ways, and the skills were transferable. The taishogoto in particular was a quick learn because it was laid out like a piano and played a bit like an autoharp. (It does help that the keys are numbered.)

[avatar]

Thanks Patty you are having a great time here I can see that πŸ˜€

[avatar]

Thank you so much for your comments on several of my songs - much appreciated!

[avatar]

The lyricists here are like wildflowers in a meadow, varied and all beautiful to sample. I am having the best time.

[avatar]
@nadine

You're welcome!

[avatar]

Hi Patty, It Wasn't Me was a fun lyric to experiment with GarageBand. I am still learning how to use that program, I have issues with timing and syncing, but I was happy with the result. Seems to have positive comments from listeners.

[avatar]

Hi Patty, thanks for your lovely comments on The Wild Carrick Shore. I've listened to a couple of your collabs and am so impressed. Looking forward to hearing more.

[avatar]
@nadine

You're welcome! To me it's a mystery how to wrote not obvious love song lyrics ^^ But maybe that's also because I'm not a poet and native speaker.

[avatar]
@gm7

Thx west coast friend. Glad you enjoyed it. From your east coast friend!

[avatar]

Hi Patty, you are very welcome. It was amazing to listen to your gorgeous song with David.

@andrea

Thanks for your comments on The Call of the Void. It's just a little scary. I find this phenomenon strangely intriguing πŸ˜‰

[avatar]

Hi Patty, thank you for your kind comments and support :)

Thank you, Patty, for checking out β€œClock Into Our Life” and your kind comments!

Thanks so much for your very kind comment on 'Gratitude' πŸ˜€

@greengrassgirl Shared some music for Into the Well with you via private messaging on Muse Songwriters. πŸ˜€

[avatar]

Love your comment on @matthijs 'The Distance Between Us' πŸ˜‚

[avatar]

Thanks for commenting on my song 'Don't Let it Slide'. Nice to know it's appreciated.

[avatar]

Thank you for your comments on I Got You. I'm glad you liked those lines.

[avatar]
@crisp1

Patty, thanks for all your recent comments. I'll come back and give a look at your lyrics, hopefully tonight.

[avatar]

Thank you for that note of confidence! I'm so frustrated at losing the start of 5090 (last year got wiped out by other things) but I'm aiming to bob up and start listening and writing 1 August!

[avatar]

yay thank you :) that is really nice to hear!

[avatar]

Bass and vocals

[avatar]

Thanks for the kind comments, super busy this year so won't be doing very much Patty

[avatar]

Hey Patty, you're welcome!

[avatar]

Thank you for your kind comments on my tracks, i'm glad you appreciated them, it's comments like that, that makes me wanna make more.

@esc4p3

Thanks for your kind comments on my tracks, much appreciated.

@brisk

Ha ha - I have no idea what I'd rather be called - I wish there was some way to combine my various 'nomes des plume'(?). I guess I'm going to have to be @brisk on here, or else it is going to get even more confusing. Thanks for listening to Second Chances! I've learned to hate it over the past few hours, but perhaps that's just what happens when you've just put something down.

[avatar]

I copied your comment about the bow tie blouse on the song comments so others could enjoy another firsthand experience. Ha! Thanks so much for sharing.

[avatar]

Brilliant, thanks Patty πŸ˜„

[avatar]
@andrea

Thanks, Patty, for checking out my first post. This started out as one theme and morphed into a whole new idea (no pun intended!).

[avatar]
@andrea

Hi Patty, Great to see you back. Wishing you a fun 50/90!

[avatar]
@crisp1

Have a great 50/90, Patty!

[avatar]

Hi Patty! We may have to do a twin profile pic challenge (although I don’t even own a distortion pedal) :) hope you’re having a lovely summer. Happy 50/90

[avatar]

They are both guitar sound effects. I have no such pedals either however my DAW can make those effects for both guitar and MIDI keyboard :) .

[avatar]

Good to see you back, have a great 50/90

[avatar]

Welcome back and have a great 5090! I see you have the distortion pedal. I have the phaser πŸ˜€
