    Hi Mishy, thx for the comment and kind note. There are a few other artists amongst us 😀

  • @tjeff  Feb 28

    Hi, and thx much for comment on Mr Oblivion!

  • @donna  Feb 26

    Thank you for your comments on the lyric 'Mr Oblivion'.
    A demo's now up. I thought you might enjoy it. 😀


  • @spinhead  Feb 24

    So glad you like my acapella thing. Eventually when I'm not heading out of town for weddings and whatnot we'll definitely get together at the coffee shop and play. Learn bits of each other's songs or whatever. I play bass and sing harmony so we could have all kinds of fun.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 23

    Yeah, 54. I can't quite explain it, except for a big project (26), some skirmishes, and collabs.

  • @metalfoot  Feb 23

    You did it! *high five* Congrats on your 14!

  • @jessica14  Feb 18

    Just came over for encouraging words. Your first FAWM and you have so many songs already. Well done! My first FAWM I got 5 songs done I think...You rock!

  • @spinhead  Feb 2017

    I have some listening catch-up to do.

    Just found out my favorite nephew is getting married in March, which means a week off to drive up and back, making my March pretty much a bust for anything else.

    I'm still planning on being down at Helio Basin to see @charliecheney and @fiddlerblick80 on the 18th. Maybe you can join us and we'll hang out and talk music.

  • @andygetch  Feb 2017

    the spontaneous ones that write themselves are the best 😀

  • @yam655  Feb 2017

    That's what happened. Weekly challenges are highlighted differently on the song page than normal tags.

    When viewing a song it is in the lower left at the bottom of the "song" box with an orange highlight, a little bugle, and the name of the weekly challenge. (The "Misc" tags show are in the same location, but in blue.) On the create/edit page there's a special "Weekly Challenges" section with the checkboxes. (Just below the "Misc" section where you can mark it a Favorite or NSFW.)

    I wasn't looking for the normal tags, but I glanced in the weekly-challenge location and noticed it missing in the normal spot.

    I don't know that it matters, but that's why I didn't see what I expected. 😀

  • @mishykatz  Feb 2017

    @elvisreborn PS I just busted your zong 😉

  • @helene  Feb 2017

    Wow! Thank you 😀 Wow, 7 songs, you rock! I have a very very hard time this year to listen to songs since my internet is really crappy. Don't take it personal if I don't comment on all your songs 😀 When I go down south in March, I will do more listen 😀

  • @spinhead  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the comment on 3000 Miles 😉 Boy do I miss Ireland.

  • @cblack  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the comment! And OMG, yes, I'm learning a tonne too! It's like being a casual member of a band that has hundreds of members, all of them really friendly. It's awesome. 😁

  • @rops  Feb 2017

    Hey, thanks for all the feedback! Really appreciate it. Is this your first FAWM? How are you liking it so far? My first FAWM I had just bought a mandolin so I tried teaching myself to play with each new song I wrote. Hope to hear your mando soon!

  • @igg  Feb 2017

    Thanks for joining me in a little bit of brooding and search for meaning....

  • @colgoo  Feb 2017

    Thanks for listening to my song "Dream Interpretation"!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the dulcet listen!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2017

    Thanks for coming over and listening to Churlish!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 2017

    @mishykatz I wrote a TON of songs on Wednesday because I took the day off specifically so I could FAWM HARD. 😀

    So, my regular output might be 1-2 songs a day during FAWM while I'm working.

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2017

    If it ain't fun, I tend not to do it... 😉
    Thank you yet again for your lovely comment.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 2017

    Videotaping...for FAWM I keep it super simple. I'm using an ancient ArcSoft ShowBiz DVD2, I think about 10 years old the program, because it's fast and simple. The video is recorded on a plain Canon compact camera, recording sound, and you already know about the "professional" sound recording. I use the sound that comes with the initial video to synchronise the mp3 sound, then mute the video's sound. Add a couple of titles and voila, ready for saving then uploadign to youtube.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 2017

    ref. the Daydreaming video. The PX350 was recorded using Audacity. Sound as straight as it could come (intentionally) from the piano, no tweaks or wiggles other than the change from .wav to .mp3 which robs a bit of tone, always. The Casio was a gift from my daughter and I agonised sooooo much about selecting it. But oh1 it's magic as a piano!

  • @famouspatrick  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the kind comment on my "Addiction" skirmish. The reason I call it a "fail" is because it took longer than an hour. It may actually turn into a keeper.

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2017

    You are very gracious. 😀
    Thank you.

  • @michaelepic Feb 2017

    Welcome to FAWM! I'm dying to check out what Marilyn's Magic is all about but stuck at work! Ugh! Soon though! 😁

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Feb 2017

    @mishykatz I'm mic'ing my uke with a Rode nt-5. 😀

  • @tiller2  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your kind comment on my coffee song. Have a great FAWM.

  • @ihelen  Feb 2017

    Beautiful and expressive vocals. Nice combo of guitar and keys too. Great work on the Addiction skirmish challenge. 😀

  • @dragondreams  Feb 2017

    Thank you so much for taking the time to listen and comment. 😊

  • @metalfoot  Feb 2017

    Thanks for listening to Alphabetical!

  • @spinhead  Jan 2017

    I'll have to work with Third Place Cup and my wife to pick a date, but probably mid/late March, so we all have time to breath.

  • @spinhead  Jan 2017

    I just moved last summer, and just moved myself on the map yesterday.

  • @colgoo  Jan 2017

    Welcome. I was in your place last year, as a newbie. I found this to be such a great boost to developing my voice as a songwriter (and got 15 songs written in the process). I look forward to listening to your music.

  • @igg  Jan 2017

    Howdy...Nice to see you round these parts....enjoy!

  • @tamsnumber4  Jan 2017

    HI! Welcome, always love a good uke song!!

  • @spinhead  Jan 2017

    And I'll second @charliecheney's comments about Helio Basin. My new favorite brewpub. Stunning food.

  • @spinhead  Jan 2017

    Have you heard Tim Finn's solo stuff? Big Canoe is one of my very favorite albums. He was the musically odder of the two Finns.

    I'm down in Queen Creek. Unless someone else organizes something, I'm putting together a FAWM Over Party at a local coffee shop. We'll take over and play some of our new stuff all evening.

  • @bhaile  Jan 2017

  • @toms  Jan 2017

    It truly is the fountain of youth! 😀 Welcome!

    Lovely to see you here, @mishykatz. 😀

    Here on FAWM you'll feel younger by the minute. 😉

  • @rj1  Jan 2017

    Welcome to FAWM!

  • @johnstaples  Jan 2017

    Welcome to FAWM! I hope you have a great time here. This will be my fifth time and I LOVE IT!!! 😁

  • @charliecheney  Jan 2017

    Hey, if you haven't already, check out Heliobasin Brewery in Phoenix. Holy cow, the best chef ever. Their Instagram feed is pure delicious food porn. And it's even better in person.

  • @dragondreams  Jan 2017

    Wow! I've been fascinated by dragons all my life! 😀

  • @thetau  Jan 2017

    Hello there...If it's not fun it's not FAWM
    Russ 😉

  • @helene  Jan 2017

    Welcome on board!
