ALL THINGS PRINCE
So this FAWM I'm going to channel Prince through my entire song writing process. I will draw inspiration mostly from his, um..."unreleased" material. 😀. I'll be looking to craft songs for others to sing, so I'm checking out various FAWMers to see whom to create certain jelly with. I'm going to use familiar Prince sounds, i.e. Linn Drums.

Oh by the way. You sir are certainly killing it this FAWM!
Craig...a placeholder would be great, but I couldn't do anything till 2nd week in March
Hey back atcha. You are doing some fine tunage!
Some guitar tracks in the folder with a little readme doc.
Ok nice. I’ll check when I get back from the school run.
I also put a new one in there for your consideration.
It’s gonna go to the wire for me to make 14 this year.
Hey Craig. I haven't seen an email from you. I checked spam too - nothing.
I'll be back to check out your tunes man. Currently getting in a plane. I actually posted a track this year. Can you believe it?
😁 Thanks for the in-the-moment reaction on my song. I tend to like making songs from time to time that don't really have a _point_, so it was cool to hear about your anticipation and realization. Thank you so much for a great comment!
Hey Craig. Thanks for the comments on my songs. Your comments always show that you really listened to the song and are clearly indicative of your knowledge of and ear for music.
Wow thanks so much. I love Christopher Cross too. Honestly I hate my voice because to me I sound like a 12 year old. and I was so scared to let anyone hear this but this place is so supportive I thought the worst anyone will say is that it sucked. i love the song ,hate the singing. Thanks again for listening.
Hey, thanks for your comments on Burden of me!
Thanks so much for your kind comments on my song!! 😊
Thanks so much for the comment! Strummer is definitely a big inspiration to us, so that means a lot!
Thanks for commenting on “Shuttering Up || Shutting Down”.
Great compliments there, I appreciate it.
This song was a bit hard to mix, was a little heavy at first, so lead me to some hard panning, which worked out nicely.
Thanks for the comment on Toxic.
Life conspired to kick me in the ass last week, and I just haven't been able to do much FAWM since. 😞
Should be able to hammer out a few songs this weekend though!
Thanks for listening to Squeamy and Joe. Glad you liked the track!
alrighty, emailed you and watchlisted ya. have fun!
I'm pleased the song gave a laugh 😀 I considered taking another stab at that verse but decided a good, honest, laugh was verse enough.
I've been "de-zonging" about four years, I guess, with a new phrase each year. I figure the attention is better spent on people new to FAWM. I don't list those self-zong-busting comments if I ever announce how many I've left, so I don't feel badly leaving them on my own tracks 😀
If you're serious and up for the collab, feel free to remix that "Don't Lie" track and post it fresh. I'm curious what you heard in your mind's ear. Thanks for the comments 😀
Thank you for commenting and continously encouraging me <3
Thank-you! <3 <3
Thank you CTS, for the generous comments on both my soundboard and my songs! Its always a pleasure to see you've stopped by and left a comment!
I am *absolutely* not a snow guy... 100% summer if I had a choice.
Thanks for listening! 😀
Thank you so much for your kind words ... glad you enjoyed.
Thanks for the comments on Goodbye Graveyard! Really appreciate it!
Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Here’s your badge. Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!
Thank you Craig for yor kind words and for continously encouraging me.<3
Dammit you made me blush and grin at the same time!
I feel exactly the same about you! And I brag about our connection all the time! 😎
Sent U my address 2 the email on file here. 😀
Aesthetic.seventytwo at gmail
Oh yes!.. work is kicking my butt this month, but I need some princely distraction.... and yes I can do voice piano synth , drums if you have some sweet lyrics! 😉
I've been terrible at FAWM so far, but let's try, yes! <3 I don't know as much Prince as I should. 😀 You still have my email, yeah? 😁
Hey... Honest answer. Are you still in the 4-track thing or are you out? We have some folks waiting and I've got to get the tapes moving. Let me know Mr Jelly! 😀
So, we need to do something for reals. Want me to craft up some lyrics and fire them your way, something Prince-ish in style?
You can send to my email - email@example.com
You are quite welcome to set "Let it Be" to music, if you like. 😀
I've got a scratch demo to send you. I'm really hoping you'll be up for a collab on it. I'm thinking dance floor filler. I have a title and a chorus line, which I included as a suggestion, but it requires filling out with some instruments and lyrics/vocals. It really is screaming for a touch of jelly magic!
No pressure. Email to follow in case.
Hi, you asked about a possible collab. Anything particular in mind? 😀
That one became absolutely awesome. Thanks it was really fun!
Howdy to you too! Can't wait to hear the jelly this year!
There’s a possibility I could even be you. Your alter ego! 😀 it could be when you fall asleep at night, instead of sleep walking you wake up, don a mask and make phat beats....mystery’s are fun 😀
firstname.lastname@example.org ? Sent on saturday 😀
I have a full plate, except I left a little space for some jelly, so yes. I hope to have something to send to you by mid-month too if that suits you. We've got our work cut out following up "Belong 2 U" !
Yeah 😀 busy life bit have written quite alot of songs already 😀 had time to listen to the track yet?
Thanks for your kind comments on "Happy Freaky." hehe
Hey Craig. Thanks for the comment on song number 1. High praise indeed. Coming from you makes it even more special.
Hey that feeling is mutual. There's reason why you're my favourite FAWMer and why I enjoy collaborating with you... (it goes something like "Wow I wish I could come up with stuff like that").
And please pass on my gratitude to your good lady for her generous comments too.
Hi, Thanks for zonging my song. That sounds funny....Yes, the song wrote itself sort of. I captured a quick phone recording of the main two chords and sang what I thought was gibberish over it. The next day when I listened closely to what i was singing it was basically my muse or subconscious telling me that I am weighing myself down by waiting to be good enough. So out it all came. Looking forward to hearing your music. Thanks
Hey Craig! I am so *un*ready for this FAWM...not that that's going to stop me, though... 😉 Welcome back - bring on the jelly!
Thanks for your kind comments on Roll of the Dice!
Wow, that's some ambitious FAWMing goals you have there...O.o
Thanks @cts! I'm eager to hear something of yours because I'll tell ya...the top of your page says "The Jelly Factory" and my curiosity is piqued!
Yeah Michael is a cool guy it seems like and he definitely knows how to write some party lyrics! Maybe we'll get a polished version of it up and rolling!
Thanks for your comments! 😀
Hi Craig. Happy FAWMing.Thanks for dropping in on my tune.
Be greeted! I am more than happy to hear that you liked the track! Beep-bup-bup-beep.
Thank you for your kind comment on my track man!!
Cannot wait for the jelly!!
Looking forward to the jelly 😀
The beautiful ones , is my all time favourite... I’d love to do a similar type song with you!
Hit the nail on the head with the soberfawming! It's been exactly one month today since I had a drink and it's like I'm becoming a different person. Upwards and onwards, hopefully!
Oh man, I can't WAIT to hear some Prince-channeled funk!
Thanks for your kind words on my song too!
Ooh, the Prince theme sounds interesting!
Thank you for taking time and commenting on "I am nobodys child" I appreciate it very much.<3
Thanks for the comment, always looking forward to your thoughts and insight! Never heard of Imani but now I have some new music to listen to haha.
Can't wait to see some of the prince-ified stuff you put out this month as well as our long time coming collab 😃
Thanks for the watch man! I’ve just recently awoken on February 1st and I’m going to try to submit something lol hope its awesome!
Oh geez, don't worry about sending again. I have it on my To Do list now and I will hunt for it in my archives lol
Watch this space lol
Good luck with your Prince goals! Man, his stuff is never bad. Starfish & coffee is tied for fav with like 5 other songs though...where do you start?!? 😍 Really looking forward to hearing these creations.
Hey there ! No I can't remember getting a track from you recently 😞 Can you send again please ? 😀 😀
And HAPPY FAWMing 2018 !
😀 Let's email about ideas ....
Well...as you can see I can hold a guitar...also play keyboard...but on the whole it seems to be so much easier to collaborate with talented people... my lyrics are much better than my music ... I did write the chorus melody to the last song I wrote ...but I prefer to just write the lyrics on the front end when doing it long distance. thanks for asking...mctown
Soooooon! Looking forward to your princely journey! 😀
Yeah, I’d love to do the vocals! I’ll e-mail you with a recording once I have something!
I hope by "the Fawm calls you" you mean that YOU'RE calling me for another collaboration. If so, I'll eagerly be there!
Hey man, I see we got paired in the random collab thread! I can totally create some Prince-like beats if that’s what you’re after!
Hey man... I hope I will do some FAWMing. At the time my computer is down, but a friend is trying to fix it.
Done and Done! - u -b
Heyhey! I actually have a practice vocal stem from a song I was playing with years ago (Standstill....I think I put the lyrics out in my first fawm haha). I'd be more than happy to send you a mp3 of it. Just need your email or somewhere to send it to ^__^.
Hi cts! I wish you a wonderful FAWM-time!
Thank you! I hope you have a wonderful FAWM too! 😀
I'm really pleased with the Arturia stuff. Right now, my only complaint is that the Clavinet is too quiet. I suspect it's more a matter of operator error than the software. I don't know anyone who has access to any of the actual synths in the collection, so I can't speak to how faithful they are, but they sound pretty good to me. 😀
I love the A is for ABBA British Invasion thread! What a great idea 😀
Maybe this time!
Hello from da RVA.
I would be honored indeed to collab with you!
Dude! What's new?! Glad to see you back again too dude. I know you're gonna kill it this year. Do Things!
Thank you, sincerely, for such a warm welcome both on my forum post and my shiny new FAWM page! You are appreciated sir!
Hey Craig - I've been missing in action - but not any more. Looking forward to some of the most gelatinous of the Jelly.
Love your goals! Looking forward to hearing some sweet treats from the JellyFactory.💕
"...Cuz I know that the Lord is coming soon... coming, coming soon!" 😉 Have a wonderful, wonderful FAWM, Craig!!!
I really hope to send you more than hiccups! Truth is I’m a bit intimidated by how awesome you are and wanna send you something good!
Hey CTS 😀
Lov these goals for FAWM.
Think I'll join in these you as well
Hi Craig. I'm always interested in hearing from The Jelly Factory.
Glad to see you here too! I will keep you in mind. Have an amazing fawn!
That was my first fawm too btw. So much has changed since then!
Umm.. of course I remember you! You did a demo of one of my lyrics, right? Heated Melody I think. Although I might have renamed it.
Number 10?!! 😱😱. That's awesome!
I am in AND globetrotting. Picked up some more backpack toys to assist with the writing process. Tiny keyboard and tiny mixing control. I am not sure how mature the work will be but there will be jelly, my friend. Looking forward to your own jelly!
Happy decade of FAWM!
Did you get the lyrics idea I sent you a couple days ago?
It's time to get this party started. T minus 9 days
Hey, well...you might have heard me do a couple of things musically in the past. I don't really consider myself a player.....and 95% of the time I only do lyrics. DG
