I will be attempting to make rock with an acoustic guitar this February. I know it's futile, but I have to try. I'm a beginner guitarist, and consider myself more of a lyricist.

Hello to everyone from my first FAWM! Thanks for all your kind words πŸ˜€

    don't know if I'm really your style of musician but I would love to collab with you in FAWM2018 if you're coming back next year for more!

  • @factorytale Mar 2

    I think you can add me as a Co writer and I can still upload The song to the alresdy uploaded lyrics. That is what zI have been told. ☺

  • @factorytale Mar 2

    Or just write which ones I Can chose from. ☺

  • @factorytale Mar 1

    Cool I Will do that tonight 😊

  • @ajna1960  Mar 1

    Letting you know that the vocals are up on @tjeff's instrumental !
    It's now called "Can't Live Without Your Eyes"

  • @andygetch  Feb 28

    Hi Rachel, wow, you wrote lyrics for a lot of songs, congratulations on doubling the challenge! Will check tomorrow to see if any ideas grab me for a collab.

  • @vegansongs Feb 27

    Thank you for your comments on my "song" ( is that what that was? lol) " Wisdom Adds Up". That was fun skirmish. Merci!

  • @bearclawbill Feb 27

    Hey, just saw your message on collab-ing! Whatcha got in mind?

  • @ihelen  Feb 27

    Thanks for commenting on my math song! I see you've come a long way since I've last visited your page here, and you're also much more comfortable with singing your beautiful voice - excellent! 😊

  • @gemhughs Feb 26

    I'm pretty sure it was "Master Key" but I can't tell right now because the embedded SoundCloud Player mysteriously stopped working for me. Which ever one it was, I had it playing along with his song and thought they sounded pretty good together. I guess I need to reboot my browser.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 25

    Either way you'd like to is fine. Looking forward to it.

  • @radicalmguy  Feb 24

    Had a lot of fun making the collab song, your lyrics were amazing and it just spun those melodies in my head!

  • @jamesstaubes  Feb 24

    I wanna put music to and sing on Run (Away From The Van As Quick As You Can). I'm already getting musical ideas just reading the lyrics.

  • @plainwhitetoast  Feb 23

    Hey, I've been preoccupied with non-FAWM stuff and haven't really been in an interactive mood. I'm not sure if I'll get back to revisiting and putting vocals on the tracks before month's end, so go ahead and sing over the instrumental and mark it as a collab with me, if you like. I'm glad that you like the tune enough to want to work on it. Thanks.

  • @guatecoop  Feb 23

    I am not sure what the rules are about these things. I have been waiting to get some music so that I could participate to even though I have never done this before. I am up for whatever but have heard no music or anything yet. Let me know.

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 21

    Thanks for your encouraging comments and support on my various superskirmish ramblings this past weekend and this afternoon. It was great fun playing with you and the other FAWMers for all those hours. Have a great week.

  • @yam655  Feb 21

    Thanks for the comment on my "surf rules" song. πŸ˜€ The phrase "you are my book" could be metaphor, but in this case it is paired with lyrics indicating the protagonist is alone at the beach... so he's paused reading to sing a song, only to realize he's basically singing it to his book.

  • @squeakmouse73 Feb 20

    Much appreciated, my friend, for your encouragement.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 19

    Thank you for your nice comments!

  • @kathym  Feb 18

    Wow ... look at you over the finish line!!! I'm running behind on songs and soundboards. Thanks for the comment on my super song! I appreciate it and that you thought it was light and inviting to sing along. πŸ˜€

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 17

    Hey! I think somehow I cut you out of our Fawm Over Party invite in the forum thread. Hope you might still be interested! πŸ˜€

    March 18 in San Dimas from 6-9. More info to follow. I'll keep everyone updated. πŸ˜€

  • @radicalmguy  Feb 16

    Hey, if I'm gonna use your lyrics, do you mind if I make some additions/modifications. They don't fit my idea exactly in a couple of spots

  • @kingwoodkowboy  Feb 16

    aerlyn, thanks for reviewing "Down There In Your Own Town Square".

  • @radicalmguy  Feb 14

    Checked out the lyrics, and will definitely consider a song for it. Very cool

  • @cindyrella  Feb 12

    Stop Go could work either way I think. It just came to me thinking like a guy.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 10

    Thanks for all your nice comments!

  • @rops  Feb 9

    Thanks for the comment on Caught In The Act! Glad you liked it... I MAY have been listening to Sugar We're Going Down (a lot) the day before I wrote it, haha.

  • @cblack  Feb 9

    Glad my comment was helpful in some way. πŸ˜€

  • @plainwhitetoast  Feb 8

    Hi. Happy to hear that you wrote lyrics for "I'll Apologize..." You can shoot me an email via the link on my profile page.

  • @radicalmguy  Feb 8

    Thanks for the comment, much appreciated! Will definitely check your stuff out and I am open to collabs! Cheers

  • @plainwhitetoast  Feb 7

    Howdy! Thanks for listening and commenting on my songs. Yes, I am open to collabs on the songs. My lyrical tastes are a bit weird, so I'm kind of choosy about what I sing (we do plan to use as many of these as possible in our gig set). Hopefully that doesn't scare you off, because I've had some really good collabs. If you are still interested in writing some lyrics, I am interested in giving them a try. Sounds like ajna1960 is going to take a stab at some, so you might want to see what she's doing, or compete against her for the songs you like best πŸ˜€

  • @jorh Feb 6

    Thanks for responding πŸ˜€ for run like the black death, i imagined it being repeated lots of times, increasing in speed like the feeling of running, almost overlapping each other as it goes on, and on different levels

  • @ihelen  Feb 6

    Hey, I played violin too (back in school), and a broken string is no excuse. πŸ˜‰ If you're not sure how, the Internet can teach you how to replace it. That's how I figured how to restring my uke. The piano is a great instrument to learn too! Have fun practicing whatever you choose! πŸ˜€

  • @powerstars Feb 6

    Hi, thanks for the comment on my profile.

    For Rise Against comparisons, I s'pose the vibe sorta reminded me of "Prayer of the Refugee."

  • @cindyrella  Feb 6

    Thanks for looking at Kenneth's song. I think your write on the genre.

  • @ihelen  Feb 6

    Thanks for your comment on my Souper song. I also saw that you turned your Super Heroine song into A cappella for the time being. Your voice is so clear and sweet. Of course you can sing! You should definitely try it more often. 😊 As for playing instruments, you can start learning anytime - now would be a great time to learn!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 5

    Thanks for your comments on my snowflake song. πŸ˜€

  • @cblack  Feb 5

    Oh, hey, you got the lyrics up for Melancholy! Awesome!

    Glad you were able to learn something from my guitar line. In fact, I also learned something by reading along with the lyrics while listening to the guitar bit. Suddenly, it sounded a lot more musical in my mind. There are still a lot of things about the guitar line that I'm not that happy with, but you've at least shown me that a fair chunk of it could actually work in a full mix.

    Thanks! I really appreciate it!

  • @spinhead  Feb 4

    Thanks for the feedback on "The Ballad of Ed Tom Bell." I struggle to write in other people's voices so I'm glad it works.

  • @jodv  Feb 4

    Thanks for checking out Ex-Centric! I'm glad my bad pun didn't ruin the song πŸ˜‰

  • @stickyfingers Feb 4

    Thanks for your comment on This Friday Night!

  • @yam655  Feb 4

    I started doing FAWM doing something I called "crapcapella". It is lo-fi a-capella recorded with whatever devices are on-hand (like a phone). Kind of crappy a-cappela? Yes, but at least the demos had fair warning. The thing is, it had lyrics and a melody and could clearly convey both of those things to listeners. Maybe it isn't always a "real" song, but a standard lead sheet for a pop song contains lyrics, melody and chords. Crapcapella is two-thirds of the way there. If you can play chords on any instrument, you have the core skills to write a complete piece of sheet music... even if you need to practice learning to read/write sheet music.

    But then, I kind of have a thing for sheet music. I don't play an instrument. I sing poorly. I'm learning. I'm practicing.

    If you're curious about sheet music, I use something called LilyPond, and it's free and open source.

  • @guatecoop  Feb 3

    Great! Either soundboard or email is fine. We shall see where this goes!

  • @guatecoop  Feb 3

    Hey, we are a random collab team! We have time, but I wanted to say hello and see what you were looking to do? I play several styles, but am also up for any out of the box/comfort zone ideas. I can sing, but typically leave that to the lyricist. My wife also sings...let me know what you think! This will be fun and good.

  • @cblack  Feb 3

    Whatever you want to do as your part of the collaboration is fine by me. Maybe you could give the vocals a try, and then if it's really not working, just stick with posting the lyrics? But yeah - it's entirely up to you. I have no particular plans for that piece of guitar.

  • @madeline Feb 2

    Thanks for your comment! Look forward to seeing more of your lyrics.

  • @cblack  Feb 2

    Hi! I'd absolutely love it if you took my guitar track and added vocals/lyrics to it! And I'm glad it inspired you. πŸ˜€
