Helen

Pronouns - she/her

I'm Helen. I make #noisy #punk as well as some more #folky stuff. I am also starting my journey getting into sync licensing, for which I almost exclusively do #instrumental stuff, and love doing weird #sound_design.

I don't need people to thank me for song comments or even reciprocate. I go with a pay-it-forward kind of thing.

I do love to collaborate. That said, over the past few years, I've found myself getting overwhelmed as FAWM/5090 goes on, so am trying to be a bit more careful what I agree to do, in order to avoid letting people down. This year, I'll have even less time than usual. That said, if you want to collaborate, please do ask, but please don't be offended if I decline.

This 50/90 is part of my own personal challenge to create 100 "useable" musical things in 2022. I'm well behind, so need to make 38 of my 50 count. Useable means either something that I might perform either solo or with one of my bands, or something that I might get placed in a production music library. If something is locked down to private, it will be because it's gotten signed to an exclusive library and I am not really allowed have it elsewhere on the internet.

I'm in 2 all-fawmer bands with @expendablefriend, @stewartscissor and @orinoco.

@cblack

Yeah, that helps. Thanks. 😀

I tried my Vypyr with its 5150 and Tube Screamer settings, with my EMG guitar, and I got good results. Not as good as yours, but still good.

Guessing the Hardcore 51 and EVH amp together means a 5150? I've got a 5150 amp sim on my Peavey Vypyr, but it doesn't sound as good as that song did.

Thanks, though. I might play around with my Vypyr, see if I can come up with something...

How hot were your pickups? My options are EMGs, P90s, or strat single coils.

Thank you Helen :) I appreciate your thoughtful comment on Pearl Diver!

Thanks, Helen. 😀
All I will say is the dream wasn't mine. And the turkey was originally a chicken, but all I had was the "Gobbler" VSTi from Embertone... and the original dream also involved stealing chocolate ice cream while holding the aforementioned chicken...
I hope that helps. 😉

Thanks for your comment on I'm not sick, I'll look up Phoebe Kreutz on YouTube.

Elizabeth I has some of the best rhymes I've ever heard. The ass song was surprisingly articulate. I think I'm a Phan.

Also, I hope you liked The God of all that Grows because I have some medium-term plans for that song...

[avatar]

Oh, wow, 'Throat Culture' is brilliant. I would hazard that I'm not quite as angry as Phoebe... or quite as clever. That song just got better in every verse. I laughed at the jump cuts from her refusing to bow to Nygel's demands to halfway through the aftermath of bowing to them. The nipple line is my favourite. Off to discover more.

Thank you for your comment. I'm going to have to research Phoebe Kreutz this morning. Any recommendations on where to start?

I've missed you.

@nadine

Haha, you're right! I used a 4th chord but shhhh! Nah, just kidding, there is so much more complexity in punk music, when you look at the right spots. Break the rules!

[avatar]

Thank you for checking out my songs, Helen! Your comments mean a lot to me! And thanks for mentioning Helen Love — they were a new one to me, and of course I love them

@sapient

Thanks, H!
I love my new bass. I never knew that playing bass could be so easy or so much fun 😁

[avatar]

Thank you for letting me know about the missing links.
Cheers

thanks for your vote of confidence in my lead guitar playing Helen!! I will endeavour to try to keep it up over the course of these months!

Let's do this!
