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

  • @zecoop  Mar 3

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

  • @zecoop  Mar 1

    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  Feb 26

    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  Feb 23

    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

  • @scottsimpsonmusic  Feb 23

    Thanks for your generous comments on Making Our Escape!

    Thanks for the comment on Black Box. Let the tremolo revolution (the Tremolution?😬🤦) begin! Also, 50 songs. Fifty. Amazing stuff, great work, Gordon!

  • @franniezest Feb 9

    Thanks so much for checking out my song !

  • @andyt13 Feb 7

    Damn, I thought I was being productive with 7 songs in 6 days, Jesus LOL I listened to a batch of these, nice work as always!

  • @ozcompr  Feb 6

    Thanks for the feedback on Travel the World!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 4

    That would be great! Thanks

  • @franniezest Feb 2

    Thanks for checking out my song! Wow 15?!?! Great job !

  • @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!

  • @wobbiewobbit  Jan 2020

    hi have a great FAWM Mr Prolific!

  • @sapient  Jan 2020

    Hello neighbour! Is it space rock time yet? Eh? 😃

  • @srcoops  Jan 2020

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

  • @tsunamidaily  Jan 2020

    have the best FAWM this year!

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