This year im going off like a rocket 24x7 for the first 3 days. To get a get a head start as im away from home after that for all of February!

After the first few days i will be lyrics only, so please feel free to do collaborations!

Wrote many undocumented songs when i was younger and played a bit of guitar and keyboards. came back to playing guitars. mando, Banjo uke and keyboards awhile ago. i write songs first and foremost. i see myself as a songwriter who performs sometimes. i am part of many songwriter groups I did 56 songs in FAWM last year then did 50/90 and did 140. Put put my first full album a few months ago. second album complete and 2 EPs all due to be released. Will do an album from FAWM 2019 for sure. During the month i try to do at least 3 different things to normal. This time its 1. Write a rap song, 2, a rhyming song using the same rhyming sound all through. 3. Me and a ukukele nothing else. Hope to get them this time.

    thanks for your comments on theres nothing up here i only thought it dark in the literal sense, that if you were floating in space, everything is so far apart that chances are you wouldnt run into anything. the voice i used for this old dead gy was inspired by actor walter brennan, who recorded some memorable tracks out......check him out ,

    You might like this little observation, well, just because, -- re: dogs πŸ˜€

    I've known many, and really love'em. Ever notice how some really like certain things, and not others. So, kinda hard to communicate this, so don't read into it, but, - just from being very observant and ever vigilant - all the dogs that ever graced my home as a member, if I ever cracked a bottle of JD or etc., man, that scent hit them, and went to the other side of the room, -- couldn't stand it. They were not crazy to come sit while I sipped by the 'ole wood stove/fireplace.

    Then, I'd have buddies who'd split a beer with their dog (really bad for the dog) and would have to make sure the empties -- were.

    Ever wonder how I have such weird lyrics? Eh, 'cause I think about stuff like that, that most folks don't pay attention to; I tend to "see" everything going on in a room it seems. (My wife wonders if I was at a different party than she attended, and etc. πŸ˜€ ) Interesting, aye? Maybe not πŸ˜‰

    A buddy had a large jumper (horse), and some "girl" cracks open her nail polish bottle (why?, right?, anyway...), -- nearly threw him, and the horse was like 50 ft away. That horse didn't like any "chemical" smell, or etc.

    I guess some animals are smarter than others 😝

    So, derUgo πŸ˜€

    We're cruising to Hobart the week after you. Not going to Melbourne, last time we did we got shipwrecked. Not publishing THAT song till after the cruise...

  • @angelinapowersuit 1 week

    Thank you for your comments on "Thought You Got. . .!" I don't know what time it is for you but it's after midnight here so it's a thrill to know someone is listening at this hour πŸ˜€ Good point about the organ. And I think that perhaps all I really want is to get into your head, haha. Which perhaps will be the subject of my next song πŸ˜‰

  • @tamsnumber4  1 week

    Thanks for listening and commenting on my songs "Tempting Time" and "Vagrant Sea", I really appreciate it!!

  • @splittybooms  1 week

    Hey I also wanted to say that your comment about listening to one of my tunes while chilling out in parts unknown sitting with your wife in front of your camper...well, that was awesome.
    To know that someone was out there in the world just free and chilled with their honey and had my music on. That's the kind of thing I think is most important to me - people enjoying my music during their "in my own little world" moments. Its hard to explain, but just wanted let you know that comment made my day that day!

  • @alg123  1 week

    Thanks for listening to my song and giving feedback! I am daunted and impressed in equal measure by your list of tunes. I look forward to listening.

  • @ustaknow 1 week

    Hey cool-one, thanks for taking time outta your trip and "stuff" to have a look at my krappe 😝 πŸ˜€

  • @billwhite51 1 week

    your hit the nail on roses. i wrote it as a straight ountry song but on playback it bored me ,,so i upped the tempo and played rhythm with a pick, singing it with more of a springsteen than a merle haggard feel, which makes it sound deeper than it is.

  • @metalfoot  1 week

    I don't always use weird/complex chords and chord structures. Just usually. LOL
    I figured for the Fake It challenge it'd be more fair to use chords everyone would know.

  • @paulhenry  1 week

    You left a kind comment on one of my songs, so I came over to listen to your stuff. And. . . .you're done? I hate you. It's February 4th where I live, and. . . .you're done. Geez.

  • @ustaknow 1 week

    What, only 14 on the 4th day? Geese man! Get to work...

    -- Oh, I'll have to come back and maybe comment on groupings, the body of work. I don't think I'll be able to have a listen otherwise.

    Hope you're trip is well and fun! (not business, or to project-y).

  • @haim  1 week

    You stop in the lane. At least, you mean to.

    Instead, you slide down the hill all the way to Whateley farm.

    That is, to where the farm used to be! Now apparently occupied by a small, yellow-gray moon suspended in space.

    To the east, the trees tremble, leaves fluttering around you. The earth shakes as the thuds of giant hooved feet grow ever closer...

    If ONLY you'd been paying attention to whoever-that-was in the Devil's Hopyard just now!
