This year I'm gonna use FAWM to reflect on 2020 and all the stuff that happened both good and bad.

I've also removed my list of achievements and if you wanna know what I've been up to, head over to my updated website in February.

To my old songwriting chums, welcome back!

To the newbies, you got this!

To those who give up before we've even begun, don't. you. dare!

Write something. Anything, it doesn't have to be brilliant. Push thru the writers block with action, not inactions and excuses. We've all done it, we understand the lack of inspiration, but 2021 is a new year for everyone, so be brave and write on!

PLEASE NOTE - that all my feedback will be on your lyrics, rather than the music. The amount of effort it takes for me to listen to a song is quite high due to my profound hearing loss. So I can't spend 20 mins per song to give you feedback, like I used to in the past. Apologies in advance

    Thanks so much for your comments on my song "Know".

    FYI, the rooster crowing part is a set up of the entire concept of "It's not like we didn't know". It establishes that a person who chooses something like that has to deal with the repercussions of that choice. I'm building a logical foundation, then exemplifying it in each verse.

    The next verse is about deputizing violent jerks as cops - you do that and you're going to have George Floyd situations. It's the repercussions of that choice.

    The final verse is the clincher and the real point of the song, built upon a logical foundation with two examples (rooster, bad cops). That's why you don't hear about the rooster again.

    The bridge may not necessarily stay. Lots of inner rhymes for fun, but I don't know if it advances the song or not.

    Anyway, thanks again for the comments, and I hope my explanation helped you understand some of my choices (whether or not you agree with them). πŸ˜€

    Thank you so much for your appreciation and kind comments on 'Change', You've given great pointers, will try to tweak it soon. Thank you for your kindness. Also I hope your 'The Survivors Prayer' gets made into a song like you desire. Good luck πŸ˜€

    Thank you very much!

  • @bfwaite  Feb 17

    Thanks for your encouraging comment on my first song! It gave me a little extra 'pep' to keep at this all! Thanks also for your helpful feedback on my sparrow song--totally agree on your point on condensing to avoid the repetition. Cheers!

    Greetings! πŸ˜€
    Glad your back! 😁

    Sorry to be so late saying hello. I haven't been feeling exceptionally social lately. To be honest I'm never exceptionally social. A long time introvert that needs to charge the batteries even more for most social interactions. 😁

  • @jaegerin  Feb 4
