Influences: too many to list here.
Began songwriting in 2009, and FAWM/5090/NaSoAlMo in 2012. I perform at a local farmers market and belong to a local music association. For me music is a hobby, all for fun, and songwriting is a sort of personal self-psychotherapy.
Challenge focus will be mostly solo and theme based writing (electric vehicle and solar panel adventures, sustainability, relationship songs, dives back into the past, forecating futures, silly, experiments, and the inevitable mashup of two or more of the preceding themes in writing games). Then there is always the odd inspiration.
In addition to Bandcamp and YouTube for music, I also paint a little and mainly post art and photos of real life on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/andy_getch/
UPDATE 2/9/19: Not much energy/desire to write/play/listen due to not feeling well. Once again relearning my lesson about minimizing time on the forums, especially the opinionated ilk.
UPDATE 2/22/19: Back on track hoping to cross the finish line with a few days to spare as life gets busier again.

Thanks for commenting on my collab song "Hope Beyond Hope", I appreciate the listen!!
Thanks for the comment on Instant Flight, demo is up!
Thank you. <3
Thanks for your seed song Andy! Glad you liked Electra 😀 she seems to have made her way through the chain in one way or another. Great fun!
Have at it!
I've already changed you to the collaborator on the piece so feel free to upload whatever you come up with.
Kinda like Lost Socks, part 2. Only all the socks are present and accounted for, it's just dark in the room 😉
Hi Andy. Thank you for your comments. You are more than welcome to put music to my "Paper Cut" lyrics and to modify them however you see fit. Thank you so much!
Thanks, that's perfect.
That makes it hard to have any continuity! Can you send me the lyric bit from the previous piece? I have music, just need a hook to hang the lyric on.
Hi Andy--not even a hint on the lyrics?
Yes, I found his email with the last 10s. Will work on in the am when my voice is back a bit.
Thanks for you kind welcome to FAWM! I appreciate your comments and look forward to listening to your music. Cheers!
Thanks for motivating comments, Andy! Hope you're feeling a bit better but glad you're being kind to yourself first. Writing will always be here when you feel up to it again!
Hiya Andy, hope you can rebound from the doldrums. Thanks for coming by and listening to my song.
Thanks for your lovely comment 😀
Thanks for your kind comment on Planet of FAWM
Thanks for your comment on my song 'Phantoms of Our Past". I appreciate it!
Hey there...I sent a song along to start Morph 5...thanks for keeping track of it all.
Hi Andy how are you doing?
Hiya...you must have accidentally sent me a message for someone named Vicki...
Hope you having a Beautiful FAWM

Andy - can you clarify which low fit corpse this is that you sent music for? I don’t see that I am on the list. Happy to participate but not sure where this goes.
Hi Andi! Good to be back here with my FAWM-Family:-) Happy FAWMing!
Thank you for your comments and advice. I didn't know what the Soundboard was for. 😀 I find everything here a little bit confusing.

I Made a songs, but I'm having problems with the upload. Working on it. I'll check out if you uploaded smth.
Hi and thanks. Just need the motivation to get started 🙂
Andy! There should also be a fawm for painters I guess (can you paint 14 in a month?).
Thanks for the kind welcome!

Wow, someone from Lorain as a roommate? I guess that isn't too crazy, as those with talent and ambition usually leave here....and Cleveland for that matter. Oh, wait....what did I just say about myself? Hehehe....
The Footlings can hardly wait to get rolling! - metalfoot
