FAWM #5 for me! I guess this means I'm a Super Senior???!

I am a female writing lyrics for a guy to sing so sometimes I need to be told if something is "too girly" 😊

So what's new for the band this year? Well, they are on their way for their 2nd tour down the East Coast as far as Virginia Beach, VA and then in August we are on our way to Toronto, Canada, so if you are in the greater Toronto area, we would love to meet you!!! Give me a yell! We just released our 2nd album and getting a lot of airplay! Having a great time! Also, we're in the process of changing our publishing company from a partnership to a corporation.

This year, I'm not sure what to expect with my writing. I've been on a pretty steady and plentiful diet of songdishes since November and hoping to keep up with the trend. One of the lyrics I wrote, I hope to see what Lori Citro will do with it this FAWM because it's more of a female song than a guy band tune and I know she could give it the treatment I'm looking for 😊

Oh, and I love Fireball and jello shots, and coffee, lots and lots of coffee!

--Cheryl--

P.S. Suggestions welcomed; however, this is a timed challenge so not really the place for it. However, if you have the inclination, I'm always appreciative and offer the same if wanted.

    Cheryl! I haven't had time yet to read your lyrics (I'm still busy getting my song count higher than zero). If you by any chance have some leftover lyric fragments (a few lines, or a verse+chorus) let me know and I will try to record it. Long lyrics are problematic to me but I can handle short lyrics (for my small music).

  • @sapient  Feb 13

    Ooooo.... I think I could do something with those lyrics. But it might not be what the lyrics expect πŸ˜‰
    Do I have carte blanche to experiment?

  • @dragondreams  Feb 12

    Cheryl, you are very kind. πŸ˜€
    And I love that you "got" the clock tick from that opening synth! That's exactly what I was going for. I'm listening to it again with fresh ears today and I'm starting to like this one myself! 😁

  • @cindyrella  Feb 11

    Thanks for looking at my taro entry!

  • @gordon Feb 10

    Hi there and thanks for stopping by to leave a comment. Much appreciated. Happy Fawming this year!

  • @kc5 Feb 6

    You guessed it! Monday is wash day...but then again, so is Tuesday, Wednesday, heck, the whole week! Happy FAWMing, C!

  • @aerlyn Feb 4

    Thanks for your comment on my eccentric skirmish tune! I thought staccato suited my purposes for it πŸ˜€ I'll definitely let you know when it's finished/ if I gather the courage to try crapcapella and finish it

  • @aprilm Feb 4

    My "normal" is eccentric! Met many a man I have dated who was a little intimidated by it! Thanks for the comments

  • @billysea  Feb 2

    Thank you for the kind comments on "Without You" I can't take credit for the guitar work. It is all from the Garageband app on my ipad πŸ˜€

  • @dragondreams  Feb 1

    Aww. Thank you, Cheryl. 😊
    I've been learning how to play what my guitar and fingers came up with. A longer and "cleaner" version will probably see the light of day at some point soon. ☺

  • @theresaj Feb 1

    Thank you for your kind comment on my sad birthday song! I'll check back to hear your songs!

  • @the3queens Feb 1

    I already feel a little behind-y. Must be the weight I lost! Let's do this!

  • @sherrycanary  Feb 1

    Hi Cheryl
    Happy Fawming

  • @darkmantle  Feb 1

    Thanks for the warm welcome to FAWM!

  • @scottlake Jan 31

    Nice guitar work on your showcase song, both the heavy stuff on the verses and chorus, and the sparkly stuff on the pre chorus sections.

  • @samsorrow Jan 31

    That's awesome πŸ˜€ I've performed at the Moonshine, too, with @leslie - it's her home base. That's the day after my birthday so I may be traveling, but if I'm not, I'm all yours!

  • @brrrse  Jan 30

    Greetings to you! Lets make some music!!!!

    Good luck for 2017 and have fun too

    You're coming to Toronto, Cheryl? Please, please let's get together; I would love to meet you in person! (Yes, I can't believe this is my 11th FAWM either). Looking forward to all of the goodness in Feb.

  • @tamsnumber4  Jan 29

    Hey Girl! Write on!!

  • @charliecheney  Jan 29

    Rock the jelly roll, fire the high ball. Let's do this thing.

  • @sheamiejay  Jan 29

    Thanks for the message. Looking forward to listening to your songs. Wanted to replace my profile pic, but ran into issues. I think it's kinda funny that it's sideways. Happy writing!

  • @ianuarius  Jan 29

    Well hello!

    This might be my year. When I finally get something done. 😁

    Glad to see you around.

  • @johnstaples  Jan 29

    I betcha you and I are Larry's biggest fans at FAWM! That's kinda special, right? πŸ˜€

  • @clioem  Jan 29

    Hi Cheryl!
    NOTHING IS TOO GIRLY. Nothing. Look at my profile pic... I think want to change it but I bet it'll be just as girly if not more, I just can't find a replacement I'm happy with as they're all so "official", what I have for my album πŸ˜‰

  • @johnstaples  Jan 29

    Hi Cheryl! And damn...here we go again! We're just like Larry and all of his his sequels!

  • @wobbiewobbit  Jan 29

    aw thanks Cheryl, hope you have a good one!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 29

    Yes, nice to see you again as well! Have a great FAWM! πŸ˜€

  • @jamkar  Jan 29

    Hi Cheryl! Delighted to see you are in! I have some rock hands to acquire, and then I will start milling about. πŸ˜€

  • @dragondreams  Jan 28

    Are we ready? Are we caffeinated?

  • @darcistrutt  Jan 28

    Woot! The site is alive! Looking forward to sharing February!

  • @downburst  Jan 28

    Smooth! I don't know if I've ever been called that before. Wrinkly maybe.

    Great to see you here. Let's have some fun.

  • @dannyk1  Jan 28

    Hey little girl! I plan to be up to no good and creating as much mischief as I possibly can. I know we can count on you to do the same. πŸ˜‰

  • @tcelliott  Jan 28

    Hey! Glad you're around. Here's to FAWM *raises glass*
