    I had to look up where your part of Canada is on the map just now. I hadn't realized you were that far up north! So cold... Perhaps I should've been sending you warm thoughts instead. 🔥🌋💥🍵☕️😊

  • @sueawesome Feb 28

    thank you so much for the thoughts you shared
    it's hard to know what would read as a good line to musicians from a non-musician

  • @jessica14  Feb 24

    Thank you so much for your feedback on "breaking no more bread". I wasn't sure if this song was a keeper, but due to your lovely feedback and think I'll keep working on to see where it takes me:-)

    Ha, winging it is what I do...will give it a go...

  • @thebschip Feb 18

    Thanks for coming by to listen! I have finally gotten to catch up on thank yous and post demos. A Win for the Dark Mind has a demo up, if you wanted to hear it. I look forward to hearing yours, too. Watchlisting, so I can stay a little more up to date. ...Hopefully... Time seems to be always out of my reach.

    Hey there, thanks for the comments on Beyond! I'm gonna see what I can do about the bass line you suggested, sounded like a good idea 😀

  • @boyatheart  Feb 2017

    Thank you Richard for the comment on "Do Shadows Dream of Light".
    And what a comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the song. 😀

  • @francessmith Feb 2017

    Thanks for listening and commenting on my song, Break. Hope that you find FAWM a good way of increasing productivity.

  • @guatecoop  Feb 2017

    Thank you! Middle ground is a good thing. Whenever the actions of anyone infringe upon the rights of others, there is a problem. Classic 2 wrongs don't make a right...or in these modern times, 1657 wrongs still don't justify a wrong. I think there is a sense of desperation here in the US right now because the true character (or lack thereof) has shown its ugly face and people are feeling powerless and scared. Though, that still does not validate social injustice towards even those whose actions are ugly. I hope that you come up with something!

  • @natalieedelson  Feb 2017

    Thanks for listening and for your comments on " heartbeats". Looking forward to hearing you !

  • @billwhite51 Feb 2017

    thanks for yur comments on the nickel ride. i screwed up the phrasing on the spoken word linoleum line, and didnt want to redo the whole song for a proper take on it because it took so many takes to get one as good as this one. but when delivered properly, it is even more harsh, but more in character and works ike a tough guy lie from a movie, but i stumbled through it and it doesnt work so well. thanks for mentioning it, as it encourages me to try so more takes later on until i get it right

    Hey, hey, nice pic. 3 years ago I was in the same boat (2-3 songs a year) since joining FAWM in 2015 I've written about 60, it'll get you going. Good luck.
