Hi Roddy

I'm very slowly catching up with things, and this is a weeks-late thank you for your comment way back on my Prelude 0822. I wish I'd been able to enmesh more in 5090 this year, and listen more too, but...

@nadine

Thanks for your comment!

[avatar]

Thanks for enjoying my lyric regarding me buying another guitar. Glad you could see me trying to deliver a smooth suck up apology to my other half LOL

[avatar]

Hi, Roddy, Glad you liked the sound of You're Alive. It was a ton of fun to write to Carl's music and then have cts bring it all together with his energy and production & vocal skills. I liked your description: "big and clean..." Also glad you liked "fish to fry." It just seemed to fit.

[avatar]

west coast cities is perfect. im looking forward to hearing that with your piano skills.

[avatar]

Wow, Roddy! Thank you! You created such a wonderful song! I love how you brought those crazy words to life! Fabulous sound!

[avatar]

Roddy, Thank you so much for your comments on Night Comes For Everyone. I'm so glad you appreciated what we were going for. I really enjoy listening to @standup's music and vocals. He made my lyrics into a real song!

[avatar]

Ok and I hope you can do my high pitched one😊

[avatar]

Don't know if you're interested ;) https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/8955

[avatar]

Thank you! Love it!

[avatar]

Thank you for your kind comment on River Ramblings!

[avatar]

Thanks!!

[avatar]

I LOVE this idea! I also love what you wrote down! I think it's brilliant!

[avatar]

Ok great!

[avatar]

Thank you for the very nice comments on Grannies In the Park. We have been friends for many years. The weather is changing, and we will soon rent a space for the winter, twice a month, and go there to sew and have some fun.

@jeff9

Thank you, Roddy, for the kind words about Second Look. For anything I've done to make someone think of Roy Orbison just tickles me to pieces.

[avatar]

Thanks for listening and commenting on mine and LIzs collab

[avatar]

Sounds good to me 😊

[avatar]

Hey, I wondered if you'd like my I'll Make a Circus?

[avatar]
@wolfkier

Dear Roddy, I would love that! Your piano rendition would be lovely.

@atam94

Hey, just checked on here for the first time in a week or so and saw you just commented on "Music School." Thank you for the kind words, it really does mean a lot to me.

[avatar]

Hi, Roddy, Would you send me an email? I have a lyric I'd like to show you. Just click the envelope on my page. Thanks. Patty

[avatar]

No problem I understand, and personally agree. It's just what came to my brain. Thanks!

[avatar]

Hi. I wondered if you were interested in this one? https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/2714

[avatar]

thanks for your comment on the last of her one night stands. yeah, not many songs address such themes. as few want to accept themselves as the bad guy, unless it is some glorified outlaw image.

@jamkar

Thank you for commenting on my Popeye sketch.
Hope you are having an enjoyable 50/90 Roddy!

[avatar]

Hey, thanks for your comment on Extra-Dimensional. 😄 When I heard @mikehex ‘s vocals track, I knew it was a keeper. 👍

[avatar]

The choir in "The other half" is Soundiron's Micro version of thier Olympus Choir, bigger versions are better but require work (no sfz file)

[avatar]

Hey @roddy thanks for the comment on my song: Scramblin'.
Good ear... Yes, I used a Lee Oskar Natural D Minor harmonica on the tune.

[avatar]

Thank you. I truly appreciate that comment about the lyrics. ❤️

[avatar]

I may have to write another at some point :)

[avatar]

Thank you much for another fantastic blues song!!

[avatar]

Wonderful work! Thank you so much

[avatar]

That'll be great Roddy!

[avatar]

Hey Roddy! It looks like I have some catching up to do! You have been creative and busy! I’m enjoying what I am hearing!

[avatar]

Thanks so much for Ain't No Mercy. I wrote this one too, if you are interested. :) https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/songs/878

[avatar]

I would love it if you wanted to take on 'Threshold' THANK YOU!

[avatar]

Cheers for that, Roddy. I'll mostly be lurking but hope to get a chance to listen to some actual music too.

[avatar]

Thanks Roddy!

[avatar]

Hey there. Wondered if you would like to give this lyric a try?

Hi Roddy.
Thank you for the listens and the kind words. 🙏
And that IS me on recorder. It was my first instrument at the age of 7 and one I've never put to one side through all the years since.

[avatar]

Hey, thanks for your comment on my song 'Can We Be Friends'. I'm glad you liked it. Appreciate your compliment on my vocal, because that is always my weakest thing. 49 to go (!) Have a great one!
