I run a weekly songwriting class for the city I live in. In the past, some of my songwriting friends have participated in FAWM. I mentioned this to my weekly group and a few of them have signed up. So I decided to do it as well.
For the month of February my aim is to write the score for the musical I am working on based on the Medusa story.
Shout outs to @ductapeguy and @moonraccoon for being the trailblazers and @mrgee1952 @rangermike @nibor and @kaibigan19 for inspiring me to sign up this year.
Sorry that F#2 didn't end up making any more songs but he sure had fun with the 4 he made! Thank you for the lovely comments on his songs (John Paciorek, Too Much Water, The Feeling)
Thank you for your input on mah song! I might just keep it slow 😀
thank you for your comments on for peace. i have been enjoying your songs as well.
Thanx for your comment on my "Stabby Emperor" tune.
I actually have taught History in the past, and always tried to make it as interesting as possible. 😀
Thank you for your lovely comments! I do not have a musical theater background but, oddly enough, you’re the second person to ask me that this week. Maybe I missed my calling?
Thanks very much for your nice comments about our songs. We both are obsessed with Twin Peaks so what you said made our day.
Thanks for the kind comment!
Thanks for commenting on "Little House Beside the Sea." Yup, snuggery is as useful a word as hygge.
I know! I thought, "'Snuggery'? Welp, I'm always down with a great made-up word." AND IT'S A REAL WORD. Occasionally I think the world might be okay after all.
Hi again 😀 I re-recorded the first song again, using my video camera and other stuff. Sounds a bit better than the first attempt.
Thank-you! Last night at the bar, the choir fade-out felt serendipitous. I dunno about further world-building, though. I have focus issues.
Thanks for the venue suggestion, cheers!
I love making music with and for my kids. My family -- wife and kids alike-- is one of my biggest inspirations for music making, and when I can make a silly little song like the Oatmeal one, it makes everyone's day a little brighter.
Hahaha - that was one 35min+ take, whittled down to the passable bits. (My poor poor callousless fingies.)
What a good venue to play in Barrie? I was thinking Flying Monkey might be ok?
Thanks for your kind words about my tune! I wasn’t sure if my link was working properly. Checking out your music now! Happy FAWM!
Here's to musical calamities of royal proportions 😉
Hey and welcome..now I have to find where Barrie is.
I was having wierd FAWM dreams for a good chunk of last nite. LOL
I'm on C. Awsome page! Don't you just love deadlines? RM
Welcome to FAWM! Best of luck.
See You In The Shadows…
Welcome to FAWM! thank you for the kind words about Snow Pants. Great to have you here!
Hooray for Huronia! (Grew up in Port McNicoll, a little north of Barrie...) Welcome to FAWM!
Anyone who had a pet goat growing up has piqued my interest. 😁 Good FAWM to you!
Yay! You Made it. Let the games begin. And save me at least one co-write this February.
Hey, my daughter used to live in Orillia!
Welcome to FAWM!
