Artist Bio

Influences:   Mostly Classic Rock and Blues players. Oh, and Eric Distad. :-)

Nervous first time fawmer. So far I've written fewer songs than can be counted on one hand. 14 songs in 28 days. I am clearly nuts.

So... what are my goals? Well, basically my main goal is just to participate. I would like to get 14 done, if possible, since that's the challenge. But, even if I write only a few, it's a few more than I would otherwise. Who knows? Maybe one of them might even turn out pretty well? It -could- happen...

    Thanks for your comment on Run Run Run! And hope you enjoyed your first FAWM!

    Assuming the song is in the key of A major, the chords that I hear in your recording are A, D, C. The C chord is out of key because the notes C and G don't belong in the key of A. And then there is this descending chromatic notes you did at 1:43. The notes are G, Gb, F, E. Notes G and F don't belong in the key of A. Hope this helps!

    Thank you for listening to our song. We really appreciated! And thanks for the compliments and the encouragements as well!!

    Thanks for the listen/comment on Quaker Conversation. I like the guitar tone as well - not bad for keeping it simple and mic'ing the room (instead of the cabs). I think sometimes we overthink things and the important part is to press record. 😉

  • @defaultdave  Feb 18

    Thanks so much for dropping by and giving a listen. Glad I could paint a vivid picture, that is really such a great compliment 😁

  • @brownium Feb 2018

    Thanks for giving Blessings and Promises a listen!

  • @billgcaldwell  Feb 2018

    Thanks for the kind words for "Lord be with me" and "Jesus save me from this world". I am trying to write some faith based songs on the Sundays of the month. Looks like you are well on your way to the 14 this month, and welcome to FAWM.

  • @mccannrs Feb 2018

    Hey, thanks for the comment on my song! Cheers!

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 2018

    Thank you very much for the comment on the duett! I wasn't first sure about the bass but felt the song could do with a sneaky extra low end cause it felt a bit top heavy even with the kick there.

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 2018

    btw- CONGRATS on already having SIX SONGS!!! For a first timer who was worried if he would hit 14, I think you can rest easy that it IS going to happen for sure at this rate. 😀

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2018

    You just made my day. 😀

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2018

    Thanks for ALL the lovely comments. I'm glad you're enjoying my stuff. That makes me happy.

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 2018

    Thanks a lot for all supportive comments on my tracks! Glad you like them!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2018

    The story's not over yet...!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2018

    You gotta figure that I was in highschool when grunge was big, so it's kind of a default songwriting mode for me. LOL Thanks again for listening and commenting-- I think you'll like episode 3!

  • @dutch1967 Feb 2018

    Thinks for the kind words o Perspective Blues. I wish I knew what I was doing on the bluesharp. Or the bassguitar. Or the sixstring for that matter.

  • @ericdistad  Feb 2018

    Repeating Third Grade! LOL - I think that's the winner! 😀

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2018

    Thanks for the listens! As you can tell, I try not to take myself too seriously. 😁

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 2018

    Thanks a lot for the feedback on "I'm Still Standing"! First time FAWMer here too, and super stoked to have found this challenge. You have really original tracks, keep up the good work!

  • @jendistad  Feb 2018

    Re: not resolving something in a song--ask Eric about the song he wrote me for our wedding!

  • @js6  Feb 2018

    Hey! Thanks for the comment. I only can't agree on the quality part, my singing was horrible. But, it's a demo. 😁

  • @bithprod Jan 2018

    Welcome to FAWM and all us other nuts & squirrels! And if you need lyrics, feel free to drop me a note. 😀

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2018

    For me it means to strive be stronger, kinder, more compassionate, and have more integrity than any of the negative, hurtful, hateful, or derogatory words or actions we see in the world around us.

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 2018

    Glad you are here! I write a lot of lyrics so hit me up if you want to collaborate!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Jan 2018

    Welcome! I really hope you have a great month of writing and make lots of new friends! Check out the skirmishes, they really help to get your numbers up!

  • @guatecoop  Jan 2018

    One thing that you may not hear a lot is that most fawmers, myself included, go through self-doubt before FAWM begins. Every year, I am wrong about any preconceived notions...styles of songs, number, collaborations, and such. I just wake up on Feb 1 and see what all just happens and then it's March and I have a ton of new music and larger community. It's really cool. I hope you enjoy it.

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2018

    Hey, welcome to FAWM!
    When I first joined I had written no songs at all, and at this point I must be up over 250 completed tunes.
    FAWM is for learning and experimentation!
    You got this!!

  • @js6  Jan 2018

    Yes, you are nuts, but that only helps you blend in. Welcome to FAWM! 😁

  • @guatecoop  Jan 2018

    Welcome!! You will surprise yourself.

  • @ericdistad  Jan 2018

    Welcome aboard! You got this! 😀
