2018 is my 7th FAWM, and I have done the 50/90 6 times. In both of those I loved taking part even though I made it nowhere near the song targets, maybe this Feb I'll get a bit nearer, especially as this year (EDIT: again) I plan to write a few short songs, maybe that is cheating a bit but I do want to get a few short songs for gigging, a musical equivalent of one-liners to throw in.
I write some comedy songs, some just whatever songs, sometimes a kids' song and some short instrumentals and sketches, ... I have no idea what will come out of this month and I'm looking forward to some skirmishes and challenges.
Most of all I just like being part of it.
songs from previous FAWMs and 50/90s are on my website:

    Aww.. thanks for the kind comment! Much appreciated!

  • @mkd  Mar 21

    Thanks for your comment on Alfie’s song! Am very proud of him 😀

  • @wacha  Mar 21

    Thank you for your kind words on my songs. A while ago a songwriting friend of mine attended a workshop where he was told to always make the first line the best line in your song. This being passed along to me was one of the best pieces of songwriting advice I've ever been given.

    I had a tendency to bury what I now make the first line as part of the chorus. I feel like this one little change has improved my songwriting dramatically.

  • @vomvorton  Mar 4

    Ha, I never would have guessed it was that! I quite liked that song... bit of a guilty pleasure. I think you're safe, your song couldn't be much more different!

  • @vomvorton  Mar 2

    Just seen your comment on Possible Future about remixing - my four-track has an "export all four tracks simultaneously" function which allows for good post-processing, I'd happily put it through that process and have a go at remixing / supply you with the WAVs if that would help, and also if you can be bothered to put it back in the post again, thus making it the most posted tape of all time? But I generally like the end product of all of these tapes, there's a charm to their flawed fuzziness!

  • @mkd  Mar 2

    Thanks for your comment on I’m not no more! It was great fun to record, and I got more and more excited as it developed! (I wrote each verse and chorus and recorded it before writing the next, so it was fun watching what it became!)

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 28

    Okay, that’s fine. I’d rather not have to use these to get my fourteen, but I wouldn’t get there otherwise.

    Disappointed myself!

  • @vomvorton  Feb 27

    Ha! Your witty comeback made that song complete! I wish I'd made more of an effort to make my second verse tie into the first, but that's the magic of hindsight I guess. I think the whole thing turned out pretty magical!

  • @wacha  Feb 26

    Thank you for your kind words on "No Way Out".

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 26

    Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Here’s your badge. Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!

  • @rustyp  Feb 26

    Hi, Thanks so much for your encouragement on "Sunday." After listening to it again today I guess it was better than I felt it to be. 😀 I felt rushed at the end their and so I felt like I could have improved upon it. But I see now that it wasn't a bad hours work. 😀


  • @standup  Feb 25

    Thanks for the details. It's just not something I've heard. Always good to come across a new phrase.

  • @sapient  Feb 25

    Yay! You won at FAWM! 😁

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 25

    Thank you Wobbie!! I ended up being quite pleased with it from something I didn’t think I could write.

  • @famouspatrick  Feb 24

    Thanks for the kind words on my "No Way" skirmish song.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 23

    Awww.. perfectly tender and quiet allowing room for imagination for a child getting ready to settle into their nights dreams! Love it! Grateful that you were willing to take it on - and truly love your vocals.

  • @fourzeroes Feb 20

    I came here to say the same as @vomvorton just said...

  • @vomvorton  Feb 19

    I've sent you an email regarding four-track challenge fun! I thought I should mention it here as well in case of spam-detection shenanigans and stuff like that.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2018

    That would be totally awesome!

  • @petemurphy Feb 2018

    "La la la la LAAAAAHHHHHHHH"
    (that was just me warming up)

  • @petemurphy Feb 2018

    Thank you. You're ace 😀

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2018

    Actually that’s not quite true, @acousticmaddie did sneak a ‘nice written’ before you. Now I gotta stop clogging your soundboard with my rambles. 😀

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2018

    ...but though I will be exhausted once I am home on Tuesday I will get some audio up, at least for the collabs I’ve taken on.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 2018

    Thanks for being the first person to actually say something nice about ‘Confessions’. I have had such scrappy bits of time with only really my phone as a tool. At present I’m backstage as Fred does his big penultimate rant and seven minute song and I really should skirmish while I have the chance...

  • @scubed  Feb 2018
