This is my 9th FAWM, 8 of which I completed. Have got myself a new guitar (Cordoba electro acoustic classical) this time around although @shortdan has taken his nice mic back.
The aim this year is to not put pressure on myself and have a nice relaxing FAWM, even if it does mean taking a step back. I am however, feeling happy and positive and looking forward to a tide of inspiration coming my way.
Happy FAWMing all!
Update: 4th Feb. Having a great time so far although not really made time for commenting. If you’ve commented then Thankyou. I shall endeavour to return the gesture.

I HAD forgotten about that too! 😂
heheheh I know, it is a bit random, the idea was to have loadssss of random movie samples over the outro , not just an isolated elephant, but it was such a hassle getting samples onto my ipad that I lost interest. I showed you roll the tape part months ago, never put it in a song before though. Horror yasssss anytime! Not tonight, cos I'm going to the cinema to celebrate my Fawm win 😁
Cheers, Paul. I'm trying my hardest to be old, will get there eventually. Don't know if the mic's anything special. It's a ~$300 Sennheiser condenser I'd never heard of, but it was going half price. Does the job!
Haha I understood your comment perfectly! Beats the shit I’ve been writing 😂
Hahaha i can’t believe I beat you to that either! I did hate myself a bit for putting leylines in but couldn’t be bothered to think of anything else 😂
Cheers for the kind words dude, you are putting together some absolutely cracking songs this year!
Hey man. Thanks for the comments. Definitely agree that it could be longer, but it was a very conscious decision to keep it short, as part of the message I wanted to convey is that life's too short to spend time living how others want you to/to care about others live their own lives.
Hey! Thank you very much for your comment on my Waltz. I hope I can record it with me playing sometime this week and replace the Sibelius MIDI one!
Thanks a lot for listening to my attempt to create a reggae track and also thank you for the nice comments. Very much appreciated!
Ps. There are two writers in Major Danby so we are even in terms of prolific writing with you having 4 posted up 😉
😂 Very bloody English?!
Look, if you think you're getting in my house without a cake offering, you're a poor, misguided fool. Ichabod will keep you company outside.
😮 You did not eat the whole fucking thing for breakfast!! >:-(
Who is JME please? Also, will you remember to bring cake tonight. K, Thank bye x
