Wow, time flies. FAWM 2018 is here! After a very unsettled 2016, 2017 was a banner year for my songwriting. Between FAWM, 50/90 and SongSkirmish.com I outdid any previous year, make that decade. Hoping that 2018 will be anywhere near as good. Whatever happens it's good to reconnect with old friends and co-conspirators. Have fun Everyone.

    Hey JW...thanks for dropping by to hear River in Winter. It's so cold and dreary here up in NY, they were the perfect prompt words to work with. Glad you enjoyed the instrumentation.

    Thanks for the input on A Man and His Guitar! Steve and I hadn't figured out that bridge yet but FAWM carries on so we had to leave it for now, I'm open to any thoughts you might have yourself. Before Steve's help I didn't even have a bridge haha!

  • @rosieposy8 2 weeks

    thanks for listening and commenting 😁 Actually my musical isn't about teaching haha but one of the characters is a teacher, so maybe I can steal it!

  • @acousticmaddie  2 weeks

    Thanks JW. You are soon there to. <3

  • @unkept 2 weeks

    Glad you enjoyed my goofy song "Cutting Through". 😀

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  2 weeks

    Great advice on my song "Can't Remember..." about ending on that accapella part. I had just enough time to jump behind the drum kit and cut and paste like a mad man to get it done. I'm for SURE revisiting and remixing and arranging this song better...I like the idea and just need to clean up a few parts. I'm going to put a note to consider that accapella ending.

  • @johnstaples  2 weeks

    I got overwhelmed and ran out of time today but I will be back to check out your 0203-D skirmish song!!

  • @aprilm  2 weeks

    Thanks for checking out Spies and Lies. I am not quite as fatalistic as the song would imply, but it is a rather scary world these days!

  • @sherrycanary  2 weeks

    If you want to do solo I can send you the track.
    Let me know how to get it to you.

    Definitely looking forward to it! Hopefully I can write a song with lyrics and music in the hour time limit. I'm still a beginner in guitar, but the skirmish should be fun regardless 😀
