I play piano, guitar and bass, and occasionally sing. I am able to write songs when given the opportunity, but often have trouble getting inspired.
This is my fourth year of FAWM. For 2020, I'm not at all sure what I want to do. I feel like I want to spend this year re-recording and refining my earlier FAWM works.
I'm still here. It's frustrating when you've made a promise to yourself to stick around on FAWM and it is literally a ghost town from March to January. I'm over exaggerating here, but I hope you get the gist of what I'm saying.
FAWM 2017: 14/14 songs. Half of those songs were older songs written before 2017, but I still managed to get 14 in. Most of these songs ended up on my debut album "The Beginning".
FAWM 2018: 14/14 songs. Most of these songs are still in an incomplete state, but I plan to finish them sometime and use them in my unfinished album "The Pop Album".
FAWM 2019: 15 songs. This was a concept album about communication and friendship, which is still unfinished/unreleased.
Casio CTK-620L 61-key keyboard

Hey Edward, are you still interested in collaborating on Yeah Baby? If so, send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll share the tracks with you via Dropbox. You can add/subtract/remix to your heart’s content. TSeaver is also working on it, but I figure the more the merrier, right?
Thanks for the comments on our song, "A Cog On A Rusted Wheel"! That chord progression in the verse sections was very typical to use in 60s R&B music. So I'm surprised you thought it reminded you of Nirvana! Though Nirvana did use that chord progression in one of their songs IIRC. I guess grunge and alternative have also incorporated the chord progression in their songs too?
Yes, please! Go ahead and work on whichever song inspires you. Would be glad to hear what you come up with for This Cruel Game.
Hi Edward , I’m open to collaboration . Not sure how to go about though -technology wise . Let me know your thoughts . Cheers mate
Hey Edward, someone else asked first about Don't Let it Be Too Late, but if you already had ideas, I would love to hear them. I also just put up some more lyrics if you end up liking those better.
EDWARD YOU ANIMAL
You listened to all of our tracks!! Thank you SO MUCH for the incredible comments and support. Really, there was so much depth to your input, it was really rather flattering. Definitely will check out some of your submissions and leave some comments.
Hey Edward, sounds good to me. Go for it.
Hey Edward, -- I appreciate your comments very much. You'd have to actually have listened to the track, or most of it if not all of it to know what you comment.
The fact that you "Like" it means allot, -- always glad for that. Yes, my stuff is not "intended" for mainstream music. I the Soljourner, -- I actually picked a Key (if you listen to the backing to compare) my voice would crack. I didn't want to be off pitch or too off anyway. In that key, you'll hear by the end, it's more of a "yelling" key, not even Belting. Anyway, just say'in, -- glad you hear/interpret as you do.
Posted some lyrics that could use some music. Thought you might be interested in working on it. Let me know!
Thanks for leaving me some kind words on Paint a Picture! And for just appreciating my idea of a concept album about childhood in general!
Thanks for listening again, your comments are much appreciated. I see you are well on the way to completing the 14.
Thanks for commenting on "Daydreams." So appreciated!
thanks for your comment - nice point on the TAB - I've added the same for all my songs.
thank you for your comment on Hollywood. Thats a good interpretation, but its actually more literal than that. Its about going back to your old neighborhood only to find that all the friends you had there are dead.
Thanks Edward for listening and comments on my song/s. I really appreciate it mate . Cheers 😀
Txs for the comment. The fx are from a Roland XP10.
Thank you so much Edward for listening and your kind comments on my song ‘It really doesn’t matter ‘. Really appreciate it !
rock hands - yes, yesterday was payday, had been meaning to do this for a while. What DAW do you use Edward? I would like to send you something, but you look like you're pretty busy.
Hi Edward, thanks for listening and commenting. Nice to see you back on here. I look forward to checking out your music.
If you'd like to make music for Google Me This, that would be great! 😀
Thanks for your comment on When the Night Falls! If you'd like to add a bass/guitar track, you can email at email@example.com. We can work out the deets there.
EDWAAAAAARD GOOD LUCK DUDE!
Hi Edward. Greetings from Finland.
Looking forward to hearing your work this year. Happy FAWMing!
