    Go right ahead!

    ...finally got a demo for Contingency... you can share and/or use as much of the melody as you like... pop is not really my genre and this sounds more like country to me... but I wanted to get SOMETHING recorded for you... https://soundcloud.com/margonaught/contingency-plan-1

  • @margaret Mar 12

    Thanks for all your comments! (Hank Williams Sr = huge compliment!) The melody I came up with for Contingency isn't anything special and my guitar has developed a weird new buzz that I need to look into but I hope to have a demo of my idea by Saturday.

  • @popmythology  Mar 9

    Thanks for the interest, T.C. I'll definitely let you know if I can't find anyone. Wish me luck!

  • @alboe  Mar 9

    And another thank you for listening to "Roadblock", I'm glad you enjoyed that one too.

  • @alboe  Mar 8

    Hi @tcelliott ,
    Thanks for listening to "Free me", I'm glad you liked it.

  • @leslie  Mar 8

    Apology appreciated but unnecessary, thank you T.C. I spend no time in the forums, or any time promoting myself in the FAWM community, so I'm always surprised anyone listens to anything I post anyway. I really do concentrate on the writing. Thanks again for listening.

  • @barbara  Mar 7

    Wouldn't we all want our love to sing that to us!? I know I would too. What a sweet comment! (re: 'Quiet Love')

  • @tsunamidaily Mar 5

    thanks for including "i love you, goodbye" in the final FAWMcast. i was blown away by @dutch1967 's interpretation of the lyrics. also for including @timfatchen 's version of "eating my words" in an earlier one. both were very impressive interpretations that added immeasurably to my words. good work this FAWM!

  • @valeriecox  Mar 2

    Hey, T! Thanks for the support this year. You're awesome. And you called it. I was capoed at the 5th fret. I like the way it sounds way up there.

  • @iwilleatyou Mar 2

    Hope you can excuse my A.D.D.. It dawned on me recently that you are the one responsible for the FAWMcast. You played my song Don't Go Upstairs on one of the casts and unfortunately I missed it. @temily informed me of it and I still didn't put 2 and 2 together realizing you were the one doing the whole thing. Anyhow, better late than never, just wanted to say thank you very much for playing the song! One of these FAWMs i think I'll actually grasp the whole thing. Believe it or not i still haven't figured out how to get to my watchlist. Ah well...hopefully 2016.

  • @pfoo  Mar 2

    I'm finally getting around to listening to your music - lot's of good stuff here. Thanks for doing the FAWMCast - I've listened to each one, and it's a great way to get exposed to new songs. Also, thanks for listening to my Outhouse song

  • @defaultdave  Mar 2

    Thanks for dropping by on "Whiskey Radiator Blues ft. Donald Duck and Killbot", and yes, I suggest listening to that song while eating a streak actually.

  • @bijoubasil  Mar 1

    Thanks for all of your support and comments! I really do appreciate it!

  • @shutyatrap  Mar 1

    Thanks for you comment! I couldn't make through my anti-epic-outro either. I think you lasted longer than me.

  • @dutch1967 Mar 1

    Thanks so much for your comment on I Love You, Goodbye.

  • @jodv  Mar 1

    Thanks for the comment on the 10x10! It was good meeting you this FAWM!

  • @johncrossman  Feb 28

    Emailing some attachments now... Let me know if anything doesn't come across.

  • @bittersweetdb  Feb 28

    Thanks for listening to my Giorgio song and commenting

  • @sw1n3flu  Feb 28

    winning and beyond... happy fawming TC

  • @temily  Feb 28

    Hey TC, cheers for the comment on 'Jamee'

    You've got one more to go 'til 14! Almost there, and congrats on getting this far And also thanks for doing the FAWMcast, it's quite a task to commit to, especially among the madness that is FAWM and like, real life and stuff

  • @johncrossman  Feb 28

    Great! It's not too late. Can you send me the audio file?

  • @nancyrost  Feb 27

    Hey Bro, would you have time to send me a Rot-type guitar track for me to write lyrics over? I think that might be our quickest way to get it done!

  • @dannyk1  Feb 27

    Hi TC, With the FAWMcast thing clouding my mind, I never stopped by and properly thanked you for your comments and recognition. Thanks for your feedback and it makes me pretty happy to know that the song had a strong impact. @fearlessflight2014 did a lot of fabulous things on this one from her splendid vocals and music to he r masterful production.

  • @sueawesome  Feb 27

    ha!! you came back and left a second sweet gem. thank you tc

    if you like rock, someone did a sick demo of my song carbon (http://fawm.org/songs/52325/) its so good it could tie with scars
    (had to share for the sake of the musician)
    long day ahead but I'll catch up with the rest of yours I haven't listened to

  • @winlocktoledo  Feb 27

    Hi TC! I wanted to thank you very much for the kind things that you said about the song that @sueawesome and I collaborated on. It's very gratifying to know that someone else is listening besides me!

  • @dannyk1  Feb 27

    I sent you an email about Cinderella.

  • @shortdan  Feb 26

    Cheers for the play on your FAWMcast!

  • @debs  Feb 26

    D'aw! Thanks for playing me and @cowex on the FAWMcast! <3

  • @sueawesome  Feb 26

    Aww.. you're so sweet mister. Winlock-T did all the tough stuff. Thank you though, its nice to hear.

  • @popmythology  Feb 26

    Haha, if guys like you say "what the hell do I know" then what am *I* supposed to say in comments? *wink* Thanks for the kind words on "Problem/Solution"!

  • @sueawesome  Feb 26

    Hey TC.. did you do the cast or just post the info? If you did it.. thank you a million sweet lemonades and if not thank you for just being tc

  • @uvejeff Feb 23

    Thanks for doing the FAWM podcasts. You inspired me to do a collab. for the next show, possibly!

  • @heuristicsinc  Feb 22

    Heh, thanks, I really wasn't sure where I was going with it.

  • @travelswithcharlie  Feb 22

    Wow great playing bud, your guitar sounds so rich!! Really good song structure and catchy lyrics. Keep rocking!!

  • @clioem Feb 22

    Hi there!
    I'd be happy to send you Aria, thanks for asking. Looking forward to the podcast

  • @clioem Feb 21

    Thanks for the input!

  • @ianuarius Feb 20

    well thank you for commenting

  • @bijoubasil  Feb 19

    Thanks for your lovely comments!

  • @popmythology  Feb 19

    @tcelliott Thanks for your comment on "karma whore"! I dig the "over 800 songs and at least one of them doesn't suck part" in your bio.

  • @sci Feb 18

    "this does have a good range of sound"
    ooh, does that mean you /will/ actually look at the VSTs? maybe even try them out? :b
    (but seriously, thanks for the comment!)

  • @atitlan  Feb 18

    Thanks for your comments - much appreciated.

  • @zecoop  Feb 17

    Thanks TC... You rock. \m/

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 17

    Thank you for the kind words about Sweet Valentine.

  • @robs  Feb 16

    Hi nr. 18. I like your take on the Allentown song, you made it an interesting song with just a few instruments! (I needed many more). For me it was the perfect preparation for FAWM, thanks for pointing me to this opportunity! Regards, nr. 22.

  • @paulmilne  Feb 12

    Hi T.C., thanks for the comment on "Oh Jacob" (http://fawm.org/songs/45199/) - not sure where Knoxville came from, it just popped up in my mind when I got to the point where Jacob finds God. At first it was just going to be just a church without specifying where, but Knoxville wanted a place in my song, obviously!

  • @jodv  Feb 12

    Dude! I didn't realize you were from CoMo! I went to Mizzou and actually was in a band that played at Shattered and Eastside Tavern a few times. We were on comomusic.com when that was a thing

    Anyway, thanks for checking out the tunes. Glad you enjoyed them!

  • @barbara  Feb 11

    Thanks for listening to "I Remember" - it's a pretty sad experience, and it felt good to let it pour out of me into sound.

  • @johncrossman  Feb 10

    Cool. Will hit you back this weekend if not sooner.

  • @johncrossman  Feb 10

    What are the chances for an elliott/crossman collab this feb? I'm fawming in fits and starts and more fits, but could I, say, whittle you a lyric out of some of these song-logs I have lying around and send it to you? Or perhaps you send me some for a future weekend workup? Guess I'm feeling lyrical. You may also say no thanks and I will be totally cool with that.

  • @rickamorphis  Feb 9

    A multi-tiered thank you to you TC for commenting on my song, and then apparently playing it on the FAWMcast. What a surprise, thanks so much! AND even more importantly, I believe it was you in your old guise of Pigfarmerjr who turned me on to FAWM 7 years ago on an old BR-600 message board (and yes, I'm still using mine). So 3 big thank yous from me to you, sir. And continued success FAWMing!

  • @izaakalexander  Feb 9

    Hey TC! You're next up in the morph chain. Here's the tune: http://fawm.org/songs/46865/ Best of Luck!!

  • @sw1n3flu  Feb 8

    http://fawm.org/forums/topic/4597/ in case you missed the link in the chat room

  • @rayboneor  Feb 8

    Thanks. Actually, I wrote the bleed for me stuff in response to that thread and simply tacked it onto the end of this song. Hell, I'm bleeding all the time.

  • @candle Feb 6
