  • @karlsburg25  5 weeks

    I know there is a thread alive already with who is here or not but just to let you all know I am here in depth for the next week full of listens as i haven't really managed any since flying off to thailand on feb 24th. Already got a couple in but can't wait to get my lugs into as much as possible. BTW Well done everyone on magnificent music feb x

  • @musicsongwriter 5 weeks

    Hi Karl, yes, still here. Hope to hear our collaborations πŸ˜€

  • @metalfoot  5 weeks


  • @chipwithrow  5 weeks

    I'm still here!
    I just did a quick check and counted 22 of us who have posted in various threads in the last 12 hours. Expand that out to those posting within the last day, and to me that shows enough of us still around to keep things interesting for at least a few more days

  • @quork  5 weeks

    I’m checking in regularly, but on vacation with the family, so not listening this week. I’ll be back in the saddle next week.

  • @coolparadiso  5 weeks

    I'm here

  • @tsunamidaily 5 weeks

    i sign in and post a quote. that thread has at least moved halfway down the page most days of late. so, there is some traffic.

  • @mikeskliar  5 weeks

    yes.. here,and and working on an album project from the 'best' of my 2018 fawm songs... and will be doing some more listening in the next few days as well...

  • @zecoop  5 weeks

    Yep... Still here for sure!

  • @bking  5 weeks

    Still here. In and out as time permits.

  • @julesbf 5 weeks

    Still here, sounds like you had a ball in the East @karlsburg25

  • @tcelliott  5 weeks

    Addiction means I can't stay away.

  • @letyourhairdown 5 weeks


  • @scottlake  5 weeks

    Here but minimally. Lots of life events past couple weeks. Lost my drive after hitting 200 comments given. And my time. And. I have band rehearsal in two days and haven’t practiced yet!

  • @rainchaser  5 weeks

    Still here working on my updated demo. I'm also commenting and listening but less frequent than usual.

  • @sunnymae  5 weeks

    Checking in every other day or so and working on rewrites

  • @ballyhoot  5 weeks

    I’m srill here. I’d like to say that I’m still listening and commenting but my activities in that direction have tapered off significantly. Musically, I’m focused on trying to learn 4 of my songs well enough to play on stage at the upcoming Texas FOP this Saturday. I’m a bit terrified. I’m practicing at home standing up and using a mic and keep hitting the mic stand with the guitar. Ugh!!! Tips?

  • @iveg 5 weeks

    @ballyhoot - use a mic stand with a boom arm so you can stand further away. Think "I'm EXCITED." It feels a bit like terror, but in a good way. Makes it easier to harness that emotional power.

    I pop in - mostly working on other things. Didn't leave myself any songs to demo. So now I'm back to "injest massive amounts of good content". today that's listening to relaxation music and reading a book one of my friends wrote.

  • @vomvorton  5 weeks

    Still here, doing a bit of listening every day.

  • @ampersandman  5 weeks

    Still checking in daily. I might leave some more comments to those who are still around.

  • @lemonstar 5 weeks

    Only 22!? - that's somewhere on the surprising-disappointing-shocking spectrum.

  • @kovbleu  5 weeks

    In and out. Thanks for the updated "who's here" thread though - I'll be sure to pop onto the pages of these fine folks above to give some listens since I know they are still active. I hope your trip to Thailand went well @karlsburg25 ! πŸ˜€

  • @majordanby  5 weeks

    I’m still checking in occasionally but have stopped commenting on a nice round 300.
    I’m back in the studio working on some new stuff

  • @edwardsmusic 5 weeks

    Yeah, I'm still here. Not making as much of a visible presence however, because I'm focusing on getting material recorded.

  • @wacha  5 weeks

    I am still here, I've been checking in daily to listen to some songs and try to get through my watch list. I'll probably be here daily until the end of March. I'll still pop in after that but it may not be on a daily basis.

  • @vomvorton  5 weeks

    I just found a zong! It says it has music forthcoming though so I shall resist busting it.

  • @fourtracktape 5 weeks

    Some of us are still here... Lots of FAWMers and 19 different cassette tapes that physically went around the world in the mail, in case you missed it. πŸ˜€

  • @leepat  5 weeks

    yep, I was looking at that zong too. holding my horse πŸ˜€

  • @treble  5 weeks

    I'm still here, but mostly checking Recent Events Forum to see what's happening. FYI 5 Songs in 5 Days challenge April 2-6. Can access through Facebook website created by Sarah Spencer.

  • @pipewrench67  5 weeks

    In and out sort of here real life gaining traction and attention.

  • @ballyhoot  5 weeks

    @iveg: thanks for the suggestion. I figured a boom mike would fix the issue but I want to make sure I can perform with a regular mic stand in case the coffee shop doesnt have a boom. They probably do, though.

  • @gemhughs 5 weeks

    @ballyhoot Just curious... Which 4 songs have you chosen?

  • @kristian  5 weeks

    Still here! I try to listen and comment more; but real life is kicking my ass reminding me how lucky I am to be able to set almost everything aside for one whole month.. but that does mean that March is evil

  • @kovbleu  5 weeks

    I've listened/commented on everyone who posted prior to me (my first post) on this thread today. I'll try to get back to the rest of you too that have come since! πŸ˜€ If anyone's up for listening back - my songs #12-#16 have had less ears on them, but any listens at all to whichever ones you are drawn to are greatly appreciated!!

  • @ballyhoot  5 weeks

    @gemhughs , Powerless, These Eyes, Mother, and Garden and Desert. I felt like these were the ones I could best play and sing at the same time. Plus, several of my other songs this year are two-chord songs that I thought would be boring to listen to with just an acoustic and vocals

  • @ballyhoot  5 weeks

    Not that any of my songs ever have a plethora of chords or complexity to them... πŸ˜‹

  • @majordanby  5 weeks

    @ballyhoot I have never stood up when playing acoustic. I will if using my tele but I feel that playing the acoustic sitting down makes it easier to get into the songs; plus less to think/worry about
    Good luck

  • @zecoop  5 weeks

    @majordanby - is always interesting to hear how people play... I have a really hard time playing acoustic sitting down. An even harder time playing electric sitting down... πŸ˜€

  • @tamsnumber4 5 weeks

    I'm here on and off there is still so much to take in...

  • @bking  5 weeks

    @majordanby , @zecoop For what it's worth, there is a trick to playing guitar while seated. Wear shorts so your guitar doesn't slide off your leg. Works for me. Just sayin'

  • @silvermachine  5 weeks

    Cut a big hole in your T shirt man and it sticks to your belly, then you got that sucker totally in your power.

  • @fonte  5 weeks

    I'm still here and listening and commenting. I'm still enjoying going through random songs and commenting, don't seem to mind if there's not much response. I just love the random song.

  • @rustyp  5 weeks

    I'm in and out here, but have laerts set up so I do come back when I'm mentioned. πŸ˜€ And then followingup and commenting where commenting warrented, but not too uch tie to spend just listening aimlessly. πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  5 weeks

    @bking - Sure, but then how are you supposed to play guitar with an awesome Jimmy Page rock pose?!?!! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

  • @majordanby  5 weeks

    @bking @zecoop
    Haha! It’s how I do all of my practicing, I’d take my sofa on stage if I could πŸ˜‰

  • @zecoop  5 weeks

    @majordanby @bking - now THAT... would be a rock and roll move! πŸ˜€

  • @bking  5 weeks

    @zecoop My best bud at work is named Jim Paige. He's an old fart like me. We know all about rockers. You know, the kind you sit on.

  • @darcistrutt  5 weeks

    I'm still here often. Still lots of listening to do!

  • @mauramer 5 weeks

    Still here, still slowly listening and commenting...

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  5 weeks


  • @quork  5 weeks

    I read that you should practice how you plan to play onstage. I took that to heart and now practice standing up. I’m now comfortable standing up on stage.

  • @monty  5 weeks

    I still check in every once in a while.

  • @pipewrench67  5 weeks

    I believe it was a completely inebriated Bunny Berigan who was asked, "how can you play when you're this drunk."
    His response, "Because I'm this drunk when I practice."
    So apparently the theory stands @quork

  • @looprication  5 weeks

    @pipewrench67 - classic. I call beer "FAWM juice"

    Yeah, still here, but not nearly as much as I'd like to be. February is a cruel mistress.

  • @barrygoldman  5 weeks

    Yes, but I don't know that I'll be listening. I have not found a good time since March began, but I look at the forums everyday! So it's a weird thing like that. Just waiting for 50/90 really...

  • @owl  4 weeks

    Checking in every so often now but I've slowed down a lot!

  • @bethdesombre  4 weeks

    Yup. Most days I'll check and give a listen or two.

  • @siebass  4 weeks


  • @fuzzy  4 weeks

    Checking the Forums every day.

  • @tuneslayer2018  4 weeks

    I'm around sporadically

  • @aprilm  4 weeks

    Check in every so often but only briefly

  • @persaab 4 weeks

    Just checking is there any life on Fawm

  • @cynthiawolff  4 weeks

    Checking in..
    @ballyhoot type out your l6rics
    So yo7 can have them in front of you..’re excited not nervous...

  • @tseaver  4 weeks

    @pipewrench67 Tahlulah Bankhead to the thurifer: "Dahling, your gown is divine, but your purse is on fire!"

    Still listening a bit, but definitely slowing down.

  • @chipwithrow  4 weeks

    Today is already a good commenting day and it's not even 8 am!
    Wife and daughter went off to the beach for a well-deserved day together, and I have the house to myself. Sure, I have some work to accomplish, but I also get to take breaks to play guitar and to listen here.
    I'm working my way through people who posted here, reciprocating for comments I've received, and seeing who's in the other thread.

  • @mkd  4 weeks

    Still listening to a few tracks a week and keeping an eye on the forums πŸ˜€

  • @gemhughs 4 weeks

    I'm still here... checking in-between while catching up on all those chores I skipped last month... as well those summer chores that seem to be popping up πŸ˜€

  • @kirrivath 4 weeks

    Just de-zonged THE LAST ZONG!

    There's probably a song in that. Oh wait, FAWM is over. Right.

  • @chrishope  4 weeks

    here till i reciprocate some comments πŸ˜€

  • @roy  4 weeks

    still poppiing in now and again, listening to random tracks. actually still working on a couple of songs that i will post when they are done, to replace the scratch versions i had posted before.

  • @silvermachine  4 weeks


  • @infilktion 4 weeks

    Here, listening, commenting, and return commenting. Weekends tend to be when I can pop in.

  • @cynthiawolff  4 weeks


  • @chipwithrow  4 weeks

    I thought I was going to leave - listened/commented on Friday, then worked all day Saturday through Monday. Plus there's a yard project that I've been doing on and off since last summer that my wife kindly asked me to finish by the time a house guest arrives at the end of April.
    But I saw I had some new comments on my songs, and that led me to reciprocate, and now I think I'll hang around through my birthday on Saturday (last day of March).

  • @tuneslayer2018  4 weeks

    Still here, or rather here again. I took a week or so off to go out of town (some of it scheduled, some not). I notice people are still commenting on my songs, which makes me happy.

  • @karlsburg25  4 weeks

    Just to update again i am here at least until the second week of April. A bit slow this year due to thai pleasure (thats beaches and nothing else) x

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  3 weeks


    Though I am in the middle of insane work schedule. πŸ˜€

  • @rainchaser  3 weeks

    I'm still here too until the second week of April. I finally got the money for the guitar now I just need to plan my days for the search. πŸ˜€ Still got a week or so to work on the demo. Maybe I might comment idk lately I haven't been feeling like doing it.

  • @lemonstar 3 weeks

    Yes - I was away for the weekend and working down on my allotment plot quite lot in between the showers - it's a busy time of year getting ready to plant things. There is a good dozen people I want to drop some comments on. I had 3 unfinished songs and started working on 2 of those so I'm still feeling the FAWM resonance and have no plans to move off the site atm - there is so much great music buried here - I shall keep digging.

  • @vomvorton  3 weeks

    Have done another round of listens and comments this morning. Not quite ready to check out just yet!

  • @timfatchen  3 weeks

    I have just this afternoon returned from our second crossing of the Nullarbor supporting indyPac Wheel Ride people and I do not want to see another long distance bbike or rider for a very long time. But i am back...the lowest point was the regurgitating toilets of the Kimba Caravan Park.

  • @metalfoot  3 weeks

    Regurgitating Toilets = great band name, @timfatchen. It can be your post-punk band.

  • @bking  3 weeks

    Work kept me way too busy for the past week, but I'm still not ready to quit.

  • @darcistrutt  3 weeks

    I'm still visiting now and then. It's been fun to continue to get some comments. Gosh darn I need to listen to more music and return them! πŸ˜€

  • @quork  3 weeks

    Looks like the crickets are moving in.

  • @kahlo2013  3 weeks

    I think this will be my last weekend coming up! I look forward to listening!

  • @coolparadiso  3 weeks

    im going to have another listen this weekend

  • @karlsburg25  3 weeks

    I am going to have a big easter monday listen then that may be it for me, but i am going to enjoy glass or rose and tunes

  • @quillwraith  3 weeks

    Still here occasionally

  • @infilktion 3 weeks

    Still here πŸ˜€

  • @jamkar  3 weeks

    Yes, I will be checking in and out. Still listening too.

  • @pcob1993  3 weeks

    Yep, still lurking under the piano waiting for the Mob, the Cubans, the IRS or the Feds to burst through the sheetrock.......
    I can't find my anti-depressants and all the wine is gone.....
    we are ugly but we have the music, right??? ( thanks Leonard)
