Not so sure I'm going to be participating in any collaborations this year. I am going to totally avoid any business aspect of songwriting by way of agreements by avoiding all collabs for the time being. For me working those issues out takes away from the creativity process. All I want to do is create.
When I began with FAWM in 2016, I thought it was understood by all who were to participate that whatever happens in FAWM is for fun and stays within FAWM unless other agreements are reached by the collaborators. I got that impression from reading the terms that "Lyric and song content belong to the fawmers who wrote them".
To me, that means unless you are the one who wrote them, that doesn't give collaborators rights unless they've gotten permissions from the owner of that creation to use them outside of FAWM. If I create the lyrics, they're mine. If you create the music, that's yours. An agreement would need to be discussed and arranged between the parities to use the other person's creation outside of FAWM.
I've learned others percieve it differently and I can't know what their perception is without inquiry. I'm just not going there this year. I just want to create.
I am seeing now in the forums that what appeared to be the FAWM standard has become quite complicated. That takes away the fun and freedom for me within the FAWMing arena. I feel it best to just do my writing and sing my own songs or save them for my collaborators that I already work with.
Apologies to any past or potential collaborators who do subscribe to the standards of FAWM. Its just what I feel I have to do for now.

It's a song about protest, --not a protest song.
I almost didn't add that label. But figured, why shouldn't I.
To many people seek to elevate by inclusion in tragedy. I'd rather not do that in any way, and rather, discourage it.
So, my lament is the deterioration of American Culture, it's fabric is full of mildew and on the verge of rotting. Holes tend to be permanent and ugly when a cloth is patched over.
Too bad so many are OK with the funky mildew living off the fabric, -- to elevate itself to the light of day. Funny though, Sun light kills mildew... so, I hope it makes it 😉
-- Irony of authentic justice
Well, you're close, but, you know, --what's the saying, close only counts with horse shoes hand grenades 😀 hahahah
I'll never say... 😮 😀
Nice "quick" interpretation though, -what else ugot? 😉
That'll teah yah to ignore me 😀
Hmmm, kinda wrote allot here, -- deleted what I could, can't delete the post 😮
You can google for more. Just google exact model. It’s easy to get confused. Most differences are little things, generally speaking.
So you got the one just below, 30” and 3 knob configuration.
For him now is perfect. And as he grows will likely be an old standby for many years.
One link is Fenders description the other their generic pdf manual. They don’t print and send typically.
Other than that what I comment, that’s “it”.
Well, learn how to play 😀.
Ooopsss, too... you said three knobs, so no Battery Box in back? Then all else is still good -- they kinda give "general" owner manuals anyway. But for his then, it's is:
Master Tone for either pup.
And VERY IMPORTANT since IS THE 30" Scale:
Fender® USA Bass 5250XL Short-Scale NPS, (.040-.095 Gauges)
The XL means extra light, light gauge. The off the shelf packaging may not have that for an exact match, try.
He's a lucky kid in many ways.
ooops slightly wrong model 😀 [delete] , so as not to confuse
So, you're gonna play then?
Thank you for your comments on “wind of an angels wings”
I’ll let you know as soon as it’s done.
Just found out that a mother of a friend of mine from back east died this week too... when it rains it pours...
Post yours as you always do, nothing different.
I'll post mine and click off the Collab button.
So, can I huh huh can I huh? 😅
Thanks for the comment! I've been very slow to go around and do my own commenting, but I'll be by soon to check out your work.
Thankyou for your kind comments on my lyrics!
Hey, thanks for your kind comment on "I Want to Go to Mars." Appreciate it! Looks like you are off to a great start for the month! Whoohooo! 😀
If I knew how to describe the process by which my brain comes up with tunes and arrangements for words, I would gladly share. The problem is, I don't. It just kind of works. I don't sit and think "Oh, this really needs a tune in C Mixolydian with a secondary part in D Doric" or anything like that. But it is fun making music. I hope it always stays fun for me. Thanks for popping by to listen! I do hope you can share a tune or two at some point this FAWM. I love your singing. 😀
Also, if do that at Amazon, make sure it's fulfilled by amazon not the other vendors. That one, if you look, is fulfilled by amazon to get the great service if needed.
They still protect you, but it's easier if shipped by Amazon.
Otherwise check out musiciansfriend .com
If money is really tight I have another place, -- but will wait... since this is the way I'd go, as --"simple" to do.
On amazon .com search:
[ fender squier bass guitar ]
Several will come up at $199, and even a Bronco for $149... it's called a short scale, 30in vs 34in... your guitar is likely 25in to compare.
I love short scale and if he's a little guy may be happier with it? I'm a big guy and would gig/record with it.
-- I'd let him see them "visually". Could matter to him?
And I would not buy "locally" -- you store I "feel" --well, ... I was not impressed if didn't say back then.
With Amazon, you've got 30 days to return and if ANYTHING is not right, when you do the return on-line, -- say so, they pay the return and or exchange... and they'll keep sending 'till happy.
I have a Squier Jazz when they first came out... - huh, hard to beat and I have some very nice Fender Jazz Basses.
The Squier "Affinity" was supposed to be the even more affordable of the Squiers by Fender. Heck, it's wood, where you gonna cut corners?!
Also for a kid, the Affinity is lighter. My big boy Jazz, is kinda heavy 😉 ... so much for being a big boy, aye? (Sound, the same... "mojo" is very over rated 😀 )
Personally you cold buy me this one for my next birthday :
It is Candy apple red, 30in short scale, not a "base" model by any means. They usually come "setup" "well"... That's the only issue. And, * you bought in store and * STILL had that issue --your strings.
Do the search above, ~of~ this:
[Squier by Fender Vintage SS Modified Special Jaguar Bass - Candy Apple Red $199.99 Free Shipping for Prime Members]
FYI: Setup is an issue with the Nut, Bridge } string height, Neck Bow as well and Intonation. Again, if he plays it happy... leave it alone until knows the difference! 😀 (Old uncle usta would have to otherwise pay a visit.)
Yes, I knew that'd poke the bear a bit 😮 😮 😀
Not sure if it had the same effect on the other one... different time zone 😝
-- I am more convinced than ever, that the "pre" discussions are a compete waste of time 😀 ..., all meaning to them completely gone now. Almost like a bad redirection somehow? Do what you gonna do and just do that, --well.
I can give you a song if you need one, -- to join in 😮 😮 😝 ... you can even put your name on it if you want... 😉
(Made the same offer to Pete 😀 hahahahah... )
Looking forward to your lyrics this year, you wrote some crackers last year!
So, what does lovely mean?
"Sounds good, like it"? 😉 What does that mean? 😝 Aye?
Ah, yes, ... but you know the plan 😀
Or, if "interested" one can then ask, and not be impinged upon by "that" as some may feel "impinged"... ?
That's what I thought! 😉
So kind of you to take time to comment on my song ‘Paper Mouse’. So grateful for your feedback. 😀 I'll let you know when I've posted the demo...
Not 100% sure you are who I think you are but anyways, good to see you here!!! 😉 I'm hoping I will participate this year with at least a couple of songs. We'll see how that turns out! I'll be checking your stuff out and hope you have a great month!!! 😉
"Read your profile here. I just find what you say interesting for yet-to-be-expressed reasons. I think I just may put you on my watchlist (in the event you do post any work)."
Thanks for this slightly mysterious comment, and for watchlisting me - I'll definitely be posting work, barring some kind of very unfortunate accident. Looking forward to hearing your music.
😀 Hi kc
Sure! Use Away! I’m sad that some people’s bad experience and defensiveness has made you wary enough to not seek new collaborators.
Thanks for the welcome!
I've done FAWM for what seems like many years, but thank you! Welcome back.
Welcome back! I look forward to your work! I am totally open to collabs if you have any interest!
Hey there Kelly...
I got an extra "Hall Pass," Maybe we could sneak out behind the GYM and write a few songs... 😀
Hello kc5!! Greetings from London
Hey kc5-- I hope you have a good FAWM!
hey! best of luck in the coming month.
Hahhh, yes... plenty of gear; gear I forget I have. Did you read that one from me a while back, comment... I was looking for a guitar and then found several I forgot I had, and had gone up in value 😀 hahhh... yup, all the gear is ready!
Bring it on! Best of luck during FAWM 2018! Let's win this!
I would like to rerecord "Wisdom My Momma Showed" with the new tech and skills I've picked up and then possibly release the song if it turns out well. You can email me at email@example.com and we can discuss further. Thanks.
Oh, and since this will be cleared out any day? Remember -- you are the Central NJ... 2018 Artist of the Year, and the awards in the mail. But you know how that goes 😝
I can't wait to see your new songs this year, if you do, do FAWM. I may just post a "compete" for each and use this as just the challenge it is 14/28. Then if folks just gottaCit... I can post to them. I dunno, make it simpler and more direct and still pick up new friends, followers, and etc.
Hey KC, can you email me when you get a chance? Want to ask you about a colaboration we did in 2016. Thanks.
