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. πŸ˜€. 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.

    Aah I got it. Thanks man, that's really cool of you. I sent an email just now too, just so you know.

  • @boyatheart  18 hours

    Wow, sounds great and I can hear a mountain of work to do this justice. I'm off out for most of the day in a moment, but just wanted to let you know I got it and I dig it!
    Are you planning to add anything else, either before or after I do anything with it? I recall you mentioning Linn drums, but not sure what that was referring to.
    Anyway the vocals are super as usual, so it'll shape up in style I'm sure.

  • @boyatheart  1 day

    Oh by the way. You sir are certainly killing it this FAWM!

  • @sherrycanary  1 day

    Craig...a placeholder would be great, but I couldn't do anything till 2nd week in March

  • @sherrycanary  1 day

    Hey back atcha. You are doing some fine tunage!

  • @boyatheart  2 days

    Some guitar tracks in the folder with a little readme doc.

  • @boyatheart  2 days

    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.

  • @boyatheart  2 days

    Hey Craig. I haven't seen an email from you. I checked spam too - nothing.

  • @gslade 5 days

    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?

  • @crimulus  6 days

    😁 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!

  • @boyatheart  6 days

    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.

  • @marchllywd1 6 days

    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.

  • @dani312 6 days

    Hey, thanks for your comments on Burden of me!

  • @hoppiern  1 week

    Thanks so much for your kind comments on my song!! 😊

  • @rops 1 week

    Thanks so much for the comment! Strummer is definitely a big inspiration to us, so that means a lot!

  • @defaultdave  1 week

    Thanks for commenting on β€œShuttering 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.

  • @darkmantle  1 week

    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!

  • @frozenlonesome 1 week

    Thanks for listening to Squeamy and Joe. Glad you liked the track!

  • @visiblydistorted 1 week

    alrighty, emailed you and watchlisted ya. have fun!

  • @postcardhelicopters  1 week

    I'm pleased the song gave a laugh πŸ˜€ 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 πŸ˜€

  • @visiblydistorted 1 week

    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 πŸ˜€

    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! πŸ˜‰

  • @debs  1 week

    Hi Craig!
    I've been terrible at FAWM so far, but let's try, yes! <3 I don't know as much Prince as I should. πŸ˜€ You still have my email, yeah? 😁

  • @zecoop  1 week

    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! πŸ˜€

  • @metalfoot  2 weeks

    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?

  • @inger  2 weeks

    You can send to my email - ingerfogh@hotmail.com

  • @ladyred 2 weeks

    You are quite welcome to set "Let it Be" to music, if you like. πŸ˜€

  • @boyatheart  2 weeks

    Hi Craig.
    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.

  • @inger  2 weeks

    Hi, you asked about a possible collab. Anything particular in mind? πŸ˜€

  • @acousticmaddie  2 weeks

    That one became absolutely awesome. Thanks it was really fun!

  • @katebirdrex 2 weeks

    Howdy to you too! Can't wait to hear the jelly this year!

  • @nuj4x 2 weeks

    There’s a possibility I could even be you. Your alter ego! πŸ˜€ 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 πŸ˜€

  • @kristian  2 weeks

    nrgproductions@icloud.com ? Sent on saturday πŸ˜€

  • @boyatheart  2 weeks

    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" !

  • @kristian  2 weeks

    Yeah πŸ˜€ busy life bit have written quite alot of songs already πŸ˜€ had time to listen to the track yet?

  • @writeandwrong  2 weeks

    Thanks for your kind comments on "Happy Freaky." hehe

  • @boyatheart  2 weeks

    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.
    Best wishes.

  • @dianaviney 2 weeks

    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

  • @expendablefriend  2 weeks

    Hey Craig! I am so *un*ready for this FAWM...not that that's going to stop me, though... πŸ˜‰ Welcome back - bring on the jelly!

  • @inger  2 weeks

    Thanks for your kind comments on Roll of the Dice!

    Wow, that's some ambitious FAWMing goals you have there...O.o

  • @nuj4x 2 weeks

    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!

  • @nancyrost  3 weeks

    πŸ˜€ Let's email about ideas ....

  • @mctown 3 weeks

    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

  • @karan  3 weeks

    Soooooon! Looking forward to your princely journey! πŸ˜€

  • @spiffyflinger 3 weeks

    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!

    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 ^__^.

    Hey!

  • @postcardhelicopters  4 weeks

    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. πŸ˜€

  • @postcardhelicopters  4 weeks

    I love the A is for ABBA British Invasion thread! What a great idea πŸ˜€

    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!

  • @chasingandromeda  4 weeks

    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!
