Happy FAWM, everybody!
This year ( 2021) is my tenth FAWM.
Some years have been better than others, but I have learned a lot about my strengths and weaknesses.
I really enjoy a good skirmish. I don't join in all of them, but they seem to jog something loose. They shut down my internal editor and disable any back-burner where song ideas go to boil over and disappear.
So thanks, FAWM!

    I'm still catching up on sending thank you notes for your having stopped by my song "When it Snows". I am so touched by the support and comments this song has gotten. I played this at a zoom open mic even though it's not quite polished and it was well received. I will be back in touch if I get the demo up in case anyone is around to listen. Your time and support mean so much to me and I really appreciate your having taken time for me. I never used to be such a soup person, but times have changed a bit, so a hearty soup and crusty bread and I'm a happy camper from time to time, at least.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my skirmish song "I Can't Wait". I save my archive and review and consider all comments as I'm going back over my fawm songs. Many thanks to you, as always!

    Thank you so much for the appreciation and kind comments on 'Moo' 😀
    That prompt really stumped me though, and suddenly a memory rose, amazing what the mind can come up with!!

  • @tiller2  Feb 26

    Would you please send me your full name & email address, so I can contact you post-fawm if we decide "Keep the Faith" deserves release in some fashion. Thanks!

  • @tiller2  Feb 24

    I love what you did with my "Keep the Faith" lyrics! Great job! Nice pacing, good chord changes, appropriate tweaks to the words. And your delivery was super--and right in that Prine/Dylan zone that I was aiming for. This collab is a real highlight of my fawm this year. Thanks!

    That turtle just keeps getting more and more hostile.
    Nice work pal!

  • @tiller2  Feb 20

    No problem taking some time; my fawm has been knocked for a loop. Hope to finish strong next week.

  • @kahlo2013 Feb 9

    Oh... that was so lovely.. I love the tenderness you brought to the delivery ... so special for me... I am truly truly grateful more than you know.. tears in my eyes. What a gift to have these lyrics brought to life. Thank you.

  • @kahlo2013 Feb 9

    Oh! Feel free to post, I love your music!

  • @wacha  Feb 8

    Thank you for your kind words on "Right Inside Our Door".

    Today is my dad’s birthday. Our first without him.

  • @kahlo2013 Feb 8

    I would really love that! Thank you!!!

  • @kevinmason  Feb 7

    Thanks for the nice words! Old Jim is my boss, and a very interesting and wonderful character indeed.

  • @kahlo2013 Feb 6

    Thanks for the nice comments!

  • @tiller2  Feb 5

    Heya, I've written a lyric if you want to use it for our collab. If it doesn't grab you, or if you have a musical or subject idea that might inspire us, I'm happy to take that on.

    Hey friend, looks like we're paired up for a random collab, me lyrics, you music. I'd like to let the dust settle from Day 1 of fawm, before we share some ideas, but soon. I love your musical influencers!
