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.
Yeah, 54. I can't quite explain it, except for a big project (26), some skirmishes, and collabs.
You did it! *high five* Congrats on your 14!
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!
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 😀
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. 😀
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 😀
Thanks for the comment on 3000 Miles 😉 Boy do I miss Ireland.
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. 😁
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!
Thanks for joining me in a little bit of brooding and search for meaning....
Thanks for listening to my song "Dream Interpretation"!
Thanks for the dulcet listen!
Thanks for coming over and listening to Churlish!
If it ain't fun, I tend not to do it... 😉
Thank you yet again for your lovely comment.
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.
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!
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.
You are very gracious. 😀
Welcome to FAWM! I'm dying to check out what Marilyn's Magic is all about but stuck at work! Ugh! Soon though! 😁
Thanks for your kind comment on my coffee song. Have a great FAWM.
Beautiful and expressive vocals. Nice combo of guitar and keys too. Great work on the Addiction skirmish challenge. 😀
Thank you so much for taking the time to listen and comment. 😊
Thanks for listening to Alphabetical!
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.
I just moved last summer, and just moved myself on the map yesterday.
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.
Howdy...Nice to see you round these parts....enjoy!
HI! Welcome, always love a good uke song!!
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!
It truly is the fountain of youth! 😀 Welcome!
Welcome to FAWM! Hope you have a great first go round!
Welcome to FAWM!
Welcome to FAWM! I hope you have a great time here. This will be my fifth time and I LOVE IT!!! 😁
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.
Wow! I've been fascinated by dragons all my life! 😀
Hello there...If it's not fun it's not FAWM
Welcome on board!
Hi Mishy 😀
Lovely to "meet" you! 😀
Thank you I am really happy to be here, it's my birthday month and I feel like I got the best present ever!
