I used to write a lot, but was never very good at finishing, and haven't written anything since 2012. But I just moved to a new job in a new city, and finally have a room where I can make noise without disturbing anyone. So this is my first attempt at FAWM, just to get back into the habit. If you listen, thank you, and please let me know what you think.
EDIT: thanks for comments and watches, and sorry if I haven't returned the favour. What's the FAWM word for feeling guilty for not listening to and commenting on more stuff because you're too busy working and writing songs?

Thanks for the kind comment. Brass: (and a lot of other stuff) Hybrid of Kontakt patches played then tweaked and accompaniment from friends and myself, then tweaked some more in the mix until I feel it. Tends to be my process these last few years, compose/record with tech, then try to replace or remix w/as much real world as possible/affordable. Now I just need some of that Japanese software to replace my singing with a robot. lolz.
Thank you for your comment on "the fool's Serenade". Unfortunately you were not right on the pop quiz. And thank god, Superman flying drunkenly would be disastrous haha.
Thank you for your kind comment on my lyric for 'the gift' - your song for the skirmish is awesome 😀
I think the guilty feeling is called "normal" 😀
I think that guilt is a first year thing. Each year, I get progressively better at managing my time and tasks. The camaraderie and exchange with others also became more evident and important as my first FAWM progressed.
Thanks for your kind words on "heartbeats" 🙏
@hazeyjohnii thanks. I see what you mean about the lack of a punching chorus. That's a common critique I get. I haven't quite broke thru that ceiling yet. I know how to build up to bigger choruses but often keep them tame. For this track I wanted that chorus to feel like a repetitive mantra.....speaker no to myself mostly. Thanks!
Thank you, sir, for your encouragement. Cheers!
Oh you just rule...your comment was very timely and appreciated. I LOVE Funkadelic. I loved your comment, too. Thank you.
Thanks for the comment on my song, I really appreciate it!
A fellow Yorkie! Welcome! 😁
Welcome! Best wishes to you!
Welcome to FAWM! Nothing better to get the songwriting machine cranking out tunes again, and York is a lovely place for inspiration too. Hope you have a good one.
Welcome to FAWM! It's great to have a room to yourself. I understand how you feel, I live in a house with three kids and a husband and I'm never alone. Looking forward to listening !
Welcome to FAWM and will be happy to lend an ear! Happy FAWMing!
Welcome to FAWM, and hearty congrats on having a room to make noise in! I think you'll find that you shall finish many a thing! 😀 Looking forward to listening!
Hey, welcome! I feel you I'm not being very good at finishing stuff, story of my life. For song-writing I have a new idea daily that literally NEVER sees it through to completion. But FAWM is a great way to change that hopefully 😁 Enjoy!
