Influences: Every song I ever heard that was lyric-driven
(Pre-FAWM) - Looking forward to FAWM 2018. Any collaborators who want to use any of my previous 50/90 lyrics(65 of them!) can check them out here:
Feb.3rd - Off to a good start, have a few lyrics posted, one skirmish down(more to go), a few collaborators have generously offered their services, and I've already reconnected with many of my old friends and following more new friends as well.
Feb. 12 - First week went well, then work and weather put a damper on week two. Hoping to get back in the swing of things.

Thank you for your well wishes John. I know it's been a few weeks, and you may not even remember, but I appreciate it. Just finally getting back in here. I think it's going to be just two songs for me this year.
Thanks for the comment on my song "Lost In The Tide", it made me laugh and I will tell the other Tammy's that you enjoyed their singing LOL! A guilele is a patented word by Cordoba for their six string, it is small like a uke, but has six strings and is tuned like a guitar with the capo on the fifth fret, so it is a little nylon string guitar with a ukulele sound...aren't you glad you asked and no worries, I'll spell it for you LOL! Thanks for stopping by!!

Hey thanks! Say, that's a good idea. I haven't been to the forums much -- time to check it out for real 😀
thanks for proposing a lyric to my power pop riff let me try it but it READS great thank you !
Your feel for how words fit into preexisting melodies is sharp! "Tentative" is exceptionally well-crafted. But the macking-on-a-hottie/fantasize-about-marriage topic would feel weird coming out of my mouth (...yet I can sing a murder ballad - LOL). What I'll do is put together a completely instrumental version, and tag it with needing vocals, and see if we can find a singer 😀
thanks for your lovely comments on 'ask the moon to dance' - yeah, i like the idea of doing an even more laid-back version ! Now where can I find a sax player....
I've added the demo. I hope you like it.
And sorry if I came on too strong. Sometimes when an idea hits me I wanna RUN RUN RUN and I realize if I don't get permission then that could be a bad thing. But thanks much for the add.
Hey, I left a note on the song, but I've an idea for "Second Chances" musically. Is it okay to put some music to it?
Thanks for the review on Fourth Second Chance!
“Second Chance” has music.
Hi John, thanks so much for listening & commenting on a couple songs. Much appreciated!
Hi. Thanks for your kind comment on my "Wishing too much", it's good to know that my voice sounds good in this one and that you think it fits well... helping me in many different ways. Thanks.
Thank you so much for your lovely comment 😀
I miss Tom Petty too. :'( I'm glad you enjoyed my song "Special Day" though, and thanks for the listen!
Thanks for your kind words John!
Thanks for your kind feedback John - much appreciated. Wishing you a great month!
I got overwhelmed and ran out of time today but I will be back to check out your 0203-A skirmish song!!
