    Thanks for the comment? I think my favorite thing to do is arm that second track and harmonize. Warms my heart.

  • @zecoop  4 weeks

    I got them... thank you so much for sending them over. Much appreciated!!

  • @zecoop  5 weeks

    Thank you so much for being a part of my dad's FAWM (@srcoops)... Let me know if it would be ok to have your songs on his Bandcamp compilation album. If it is ok and you are able, please feel free to send me the WAV versions to zecoop at yahoo dot com. Thank you once again!!! (I've asked you before, so I know it's probably ok, but always have to ask) 😀

  • @srcoops  5 weeks

    Thanks for the great work on my lyrics! Five this year. Wow! You contribute greatly to my enjoyment in this FAWM activity. Old men like me are not often this fortunate.

  • @acousticmaddie  6 weeks

    Thank you so much. Would it be ok to use it in my top Fawm collab collection At bandcamp that I do every year? With credits and links of course

  • @thetau Feb 2

    OK so I'm one day late at the start, and you already have 14 songs... Congrats... I'm usually happy if I can even make it to 14 songs by the end of the month. I'll be sending you some material to look over for a co-write Monday and on... Also need to get back with you for this year's, 2020... Production and Publishing goals and targets. I'm thinking a 6 song EP albums as a minimum this year... Russ

  • @zecoop  Feb 2

    Hey there Gordon - I just wanted to say thank you and good to see you here at FAWM again. This will be a different FAWM for all three of my family here, and should be very cathartic. Your amazing ability to write songs with my dad's lyrics will be a very positive thing and always brings much joy. I enjoyed both of them so far and look forward to more of your awesome music, of all sorts. 😀

  • @dreamscuba  Feb 1

    Thanks for your comments on “Into The Unknown”. You are off to a great start!

  • @srcoops  Jan 17

    I have some ideas, many are somber but we will hang in there. Looking forward to working with you again.

  • @tsunamidaily  Jan 14

    I enter this season of FAWM with a very heavy heart. Our oldest son, Tom, passed away last week while visiting us.
