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

  • @tjeff  3 weeks

    Hi, and thx much for comment on Mr Oblivion!

  • @donna  3 weeks

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


  • @spinhead  4 weeks

    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  4 weeks

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

  • @metalfoot  4 weeks

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

  • @jessica14  5 weeks

    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  5 weeks

    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.

    the spontaneous ones that write themselves are the best 😀

  • @yam655  6 weeks

    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  6 weeks

    @elvisreborn PS I just busted your zong 😉

  • @helene  6 weeks

    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  6 weeks

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

  • @cblack  6 weeks

    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  7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

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

  • @colgoo  7 weeks

    Thanks for listening to my song "Dream Interpretation"!

  • @metalfoot  7 weeks

    Thanks for the dulcet listen!

  • @metalfoot  7 weeks

    Thanks for coming over and listening to Churlish!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  7 weeks

    @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  7 weeks

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

  • @timfatchen  7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

    You are very gracious. 😀
    Thank you.

  • @michaelepic 7 weeks

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

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  7 weeks

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

  • @tiller2  7 weeks

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

  • @ihelen  7 weeks

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

  • @dragondreams  7 weeks

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

  • @metalfoot  7 weeks

    Thanks for listening to Alphabetical!

  • @spinhead  7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

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

  • @colgoo  7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

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

  • @tamsnumber4  7 weeks

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

  • @spinhead  7 weeks

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

  • @spinhead  7 weeks

    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.

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

  • @charliecheney  7 weeks

    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  7 weeks

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