I'm going to take FAWM as a fun challenge! I've been writing songs for 22 years now (started in my mid '40s, and you do the math). My output is low, but my quality... hey, it's good. Let's see what happens when I step on the gas!
Hi again Charlie...I took your suggestions on board and have re-recorded the song with breaks between the verses...good idea btw! I left in the little nod to High Noon at the end...I wonder if anyone will spot it...😃...here's the link to the new version...see what you think... https://soundcloud.com/davidgwynjones...
Hi...thanks...I had already worked out a simple arrangement...a two step Country walking bass style approach,,,there's a brief musical reference at the end that I thought might be apposite,,,here's a link and see what you think before it's posted...Could you also give me your name so I can credit you properly on SC please? 😃 https://soundcloud.com/davidgwynjones...
Hi Charlie! Thanks for listening and for your comments on my first song. I look forwards to listening to your song today! Happy FAWM!
Oh hooray! I'm so glad you're here, Charlie!
Welcome to the fun!
