    Liz, I liked your lyric of "In the Silence" so I recorded a tune for collab.
    I emailed it to you for you to check out and if you like it I can upload the song to my SoundClick sight and tag us as collaborators here on FAWM.
    Let me know, Thanks.

  • @bmoscovitz 2 hours

    Thanks for your comment in "This kind of love"! I'm very excited to work on a finished version with more layers to translate all the feelings I put into it.

  • @tjeff  2 hours

    How about โ€œNo Secret Passage to Loveโ€?

  • @wacha  3 hours

    I'm glad you are so happy with "Vivian" I'm hoping to work on it some more post FAWM. I had a much better guitar part that I think made it more sensual but I could not play what I had in mind well enough to record it.

  • @resonut123 4 hours

    Thanks for the nice comment on my instrumental tune Lilting. It was fun to do.

  • @wacha  4 hours

    Thank you so much for your kind words on "I'm Okay With That". I struggled with this one a bit at first and still think there is some room for improvement. I'm looking forward to working on this one when I have little more time.

  • @mmmmarcus  13 hours

    Thank you so much for all continued support, and commenting on my tracks! Glad you liked "Tattoos & Lollipops"!

  • @gordon  13 hours

    Hello again, and thanks again for having a listen to one of mine. Much appreciated. You are having a grand old FAWM this year as well, which is great!

  • @siebass  17 hours

    Thanks for checking out "I think you're stupid." I think it's my best song so far this time around, even if the recording isn't as good as some of the others. Now to pick from this 74 song list (and counting) and find a good one to comment on....

  • @aprilm  18 hours

    I did find someone to do the song with me - my e-mail is acting up so trying to get it working so I can send files! Technology is amazing but it sucks sometimes!

    i got it and it is converted for my machine, now to find the time LOL!

    I was able to fit the chorus and lyric into that specific one, unless the other one is the same melody.

  • @scubed  1 day

    Thank you so much for the generous words on "Better Angels" and "Insomnia" - much appreciated! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @tjeff  1 day

    Much thanks for your listening & kind comments on the Unopened Letter collaboration! Wow, you are prolific, Iโ€™ve quickly read through several of your lyrics, amazing work. Would you be open to me taking a crack at setting one to music? I believe that we collabed on a song last year in 50/90.

  • @oaksnprairie  1 day

    Thanks for commenting on my song. Iโ€™d like to work on In the Silence if thatโ€™s ok.

  • @barbara  1 day

    Thanks for commenting on 'I'll Have Another' - yeah, it was a delicate issue for me. I felt so uncomfortable writing a song all about the drive for that stereotypical family. I am not all about that. I even struck a few lines because they were tilted so much that way. I guess it was coming up because the initial impetus for the song was my own privately held judgment of someone I know for trying to have another child for what seemed to me to be narcissistic reasons. Not really mine to say, but it sure seemed that way, being that they were the third born of three and seemed hell-bent despite many of nature's red flags to stop. It wasn't to break a tie; that was just the muse's artifice to sucker me into the song, and into satirizing their behavior. I didn't know where I was going until I was well into the skirmish. You take risks when you write quickly! I feel a little ugly about it.

  • @aprilm  2 days

    The "woolly mint" was a challenge to incorporate! But Purple Storm was a journey into a whole different kind of song writing for me

  • @jibbidy34  2 days

    EPIC achievement Quintessential Hero!! You are the unsung hero of FAWM and we LOVE YOU. You took the time to write 500 comments (500!!!!!!) and listen to all those songs (how are your ears btw?)! Thanks for your almighty contribution to our community. You have 500 thank youโ€™s from your fellow FAWMers and from me! Excellent work and keep bustingโ€™ those zongs!!

  • @colgoo  2 days

    Oh....I do have a tune for my addiction song, but if my husband hears me playing guitar instead of folding all the laundry on my bed.....

    Isnโ€™t that a sign of addiction, too? Hiding the problem and avoiding the everyday tasks that should be done?

  • @acousticmaddie  2 days

    Well I usually bring the guitar or uke to the campfire ... so I do know ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @scubed  3 days

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my skirmish songs!

    Thank you so much for your amazingly kind words on 'Fire Pig' ๐Ÿ˜ Yeah it was fast when trying to juggle geting a 4 yr old dressed and a grumpy husband organised to spend a day at the zoo!

    If you list me as a collaborator, I have a demo ready.

  • @wacha  3 days

    I sure would like to collaborate on something! Let me know if you have some lyrics you've written you'd like me to work on. I'm flattered you asked. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @tiller2  3 days

    Hi there. Congrats on your win, and your second win, and your third... You crazy productive person! Iโ€™ve been slow off the mark, but moving up.

  • @marijequerida 3 days

    No problemo! Thought I'd mention it because I still remember how happy I was when @ferry0123 suggested I'd change 'so frustrating' into 'infuriating' three years ago.

  • @aprilm  3 days

    Thanks! I am housebound as I injured my foot and can't hobble around very well. So, tomorrow I will set my recording stuff up and do some of the songs I've been working on to share. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @colgoo  4 days

    Okay, now youโ€™re just showing off. Even if you counted each lyric as half a song, you are definitely past the 14 song mark! Let me know if you have a particular set of lyrics youโ€™d like to have me set to music. It feels like a tradition we should keep up! Thanks, also, for your comment on Serendipity Cafe. It would have been awesome to have had you there that night.

  • @owl  5 days

    congrats on the many-times-over win already! Somehow you fell off my watchlist (this happens every year somehow with a couple of people, don't know what the deal is) but I think I have fixed that now.

  • @meadows  5 days

    Actually the song Running was one of my faves but I don't know if I am able deliver an appropriate composition.

  • @meadows  5 days

    Hey Liz! Thank you very much for your kind comments. Do you have a song that is still without a collaborator and that you want me to write the music for? Just add me as a collaborator and I'll do it! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @forrandom 5 days

    It looks like someone else might've got dibs on collabing for Sometimes I Might, but I'd def like to collab on another one! I'll peruse what you have up, or if there's one in particular you think would fit my style, let me know!

  • @tseaver  5 days

    Thanks for your supportive comments on my songs. I am in awe of your prodigious output during FAWM!

    Thank you so much for all the supportive comments, latest one on my collab with Colleen ("On The Other Side Of The World"). I'm very glad you like my tracks, and humbled by all the compliments. Thank you!

  • @erbaer  6 days

    My first idea is a non-linear lyric. Maybe one melody plays through followed by a counter melody. Then both playing at once... lyrics overlapping.
    As far as topic... what about the paradox of self and other. The power of a demagogue is fear of an 'other' while inflating the 'self'. Every person is both... I don't know exactly what I'm getting at but there's a seed in there somewhere. I don't know if it will go anywhere.
    Whatever you write about... I'm in.

  • @jenniferlevenhagen  6 days

    I'm really wanting to some something bluesy or slow/"Cool" jazz. Ive been thinking that maybe it's be helpful to just do the singing, and have someone else hand over lyrics and either Melody and/or just a chord progression... So that's my thought... Run with it in any way you want/can, and well see! Email is info@jenniferlevenhagen.com

  • @erbaer  6 days

    hey there... this will be fun...do you have any first ideas?

  • @jibbidy34  6 days

    Aw brilliant! I will get to it. Yay!!!

  • @jenniferlevenhagen  1 week

    Hello! Yes, it'd be great to hear any suggestion, and if you're inspired to right something I could sing, that would be a grand adventure too!

  • @acousticmaddie  1 week

    Same here. But Daniel usuallu encourage me becourse he sees what it does for my confidence and he also bought the thin whistle and made me start to play it. And well kids usually throw out promts so we are sort of in it all of us

Right now I am looking at arpeggiated chords moving between G, G/F#, Em7 and C, C/B and Am - to give you an idea of the mood I'm currently thinking of achieving. E-mail me and we'll chat ๐Ÿ˜€

    Do you know how much it means to me to hear/read your words about Let Me In? You just made my year, let alone my day...to touch someone in a way that brings tears to their eyes is just...I don't even have the words...thank you. So very, very much

  • @barbara  1 week

    Hey, thanks for weighing in on Little Fishy. I may reevaluate the bridge. I was being a little "meta" with regard to finding myself writing a skirmish that contradicts my own values. But since the song might stand on its own without that, maybe it should go. That, or maybe take those chords and melody and write something entirely different for them, more suited to the flavor. Do you write to existing music? Would you be interested in a collab to do that? No worries, if the answer is no. I'm just thinking out loud. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @acousticmaddie  1 week

    I Took it I should write the lover so I think this could be done with a very simple chord progression or acapella.Hope it works.

    I can see you dying
    You soul slowly fades away
    Cant hold you. Just stand crying
    And for dark times I obey

    CH: I just want to hold you
    To make you warm again
    The trace of the disastre
    Force me to long in vain

    2, For better and for worse
    Is what you promised me
    I don't want to watch your pain
    I beg God to let you free

    Ch repeat

    3, And by your bed I am waiting
    For our last goodbye
    My dear you live inside me
    Our love can never die
