This is my 5th FAWM and I am not going to stress over doing a certain number of songs, but will just take it as it comes. I was in the depths of doing my MA in Music Practice during the last FAWM so I was pleased to complete the MA in August last year.
This FAWM I going to go back to my regular song writing (rather than the experimental stuff of last year) and we try to write tunes that I could perform on my own (rather than with my band). If I can persuade him to get involved I will try writing some with my eldest son (who plays lead guitar in our band). We have written a few together in the past so it would be good to have a more focused approach.
If you want to know more about me as an artist and musician you can check out my website www.julesbryant.co.uk and my blog https://sonicsentience.music.blog/
Would be happy to hook up with more people on Facebook, I love the family atmosphere that FAWM produces and I keep up with some past FAWM friends throughout the year. (FAWM friends are not just for February!)
Hey thanks so much! I've been exploring production and all these different sounds and ways to fill out the space...it's been a wild ride!
thanks for listening/commenting!
Hi Jules, tx for your comment on Undone, Happy Days is an interesting tune, well done 😀
Thanks for commenting on "A Gust of Wind"
Thx for your comment on irreplaceable Now only 5 songs till 14 and well looks like you better at song completion than me I find Lyrics flow and music slow
Thx a lot for nice comments on "If I Said I´m Sorry"
Jules, thanks a lot for your nice comments on my efforts at putting benjo's 'Levitate'. It was fun to do. And the pressures of FAWM are definitely useful, as you said.
Hey jules thank you so much for your valued feedback means a lot bud
Thanks for the comment on my song "hey What you gonna do?"
Thanks for stopping by and for your comments on "Nothing Really." (funny to see how that reads)
Oh my goodness Dupletarion Warrior you are AWESOME!! You took the time to write 200 comments and listen to all those songs! Thanks for your hefty contribution to our community. You have 200 thank you’s from your fellow FAWMers and from me! Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!
Thanks so much for your encouragement regarding “Episodic”. I’ve always leaned towards minimalism—although I do have my bombastic moments. I’m always happy to connect with musicians on Facebook too. 😊
Thanks for dropping by!
Thanks for commenting on my "You Knew Where to Find Me"
The lead guitar is probably so bad because
a) it's a 3/4 electric guitar (perfect for my stumpy fingers) but the slightest unintentional bend when fretting will make it slightly sharp.
b) I only started attempting lead solos last year (aged 63 😀 ) so my playing in that area needs a lot of improvement 😉
Thank you so much for the nice comments on my tracks! I'm glad you liked them!
getting some great feedback stuff here, thank you! can't have someone call your song "killer catchy" and not feel better!
the vocals are 2 samples that I have in a soundpack for my DAW. The rest is little ol' me.
Hey Jules! Thanks for listening to my songs today. Awesome comments thanks and hi from London
Thanks for being the first comment on my first song! Keep up the awesome creativity here!
Thanks for your nice comments Jules! I don't think I'm finished with this ghost 😀
Hey, thanks for the encouragement on Fork it Over! I really have to play my electric guitar more often and get better at it! Glad I was able to convey the feel I was going for! Liz writes awesome lyrics so she makes the music easy!
Thanks for your comment on "Again the night".
Thanks very much for your kind words about "Such a Fine Man." Don't we wish Trump weren't giving us so much songwriting material!

Don't you DARE leave FAWM on my account! 😀
Keep writin'. I've been doing FAWM since 2008 and then I had about 20 years before that playing in bands. And I've been working a lot on making radio/tv ready music... 😀
You can also hear my iPhone song with bad notes and laughing in the background. 😀

Thanks for the nice comment! I'd love to jam on some instruments other than uke this month, but I'm traveling so it's all I've got in my arsenal. I'll just have to coax some interesting sounds out if it! Happy FAWM. 😀
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment!
Haha, thanks dude! Yeah, I got some new kit just this week so I got a bit excited about actually being able to use some electric guitar!
Hey, thanks so much for taking the time to listen and comment on my tune Gone Away!
Hey man, thanks! I'm excited and nervous to be back - I really want to get back to song writing because I've just not been getting to it the last couple of years - hopefully FAWM will spark it back this time around! My first song isn't particularly cello-y, but don't worry there'll be some cello before too long I'm sure 😀
Thanks for your encouraging feedback on Paper Mouse, I really appreciate you taking the time, will have a listen to what you are up to while I'm here!
Thanks for listening and for the kind words!
