    Hi Gordon, thanks for the comment on @dreamscuba's and my song. I've no idea where to start with yours. What's your favourite?

  • @dreamscuba  6 weeks

    Thank you for the comments on "Next", much appreciated.

  • @cynthiawolff  7 weeks

    Hiya Gordon..
    if you have a moment can you send me the chords you used on our
    Collab...I want to keep what you did and see if I can do it at open mics...

  • @zecoop  7 weeks

    Your work is truly inspiring, hearing you create so many songs in so many styles with so many people. I really liked the album you did with sapient too. A man of many talents - I know that it has meant a lot to my dad as well, so thank you for all the wonderful songs! I'm assuming it is once again ok to put them on a bandcamp album for him?

    And good grief - a Deca-FAWM!! 😮

  • @cindyrella  7 weeks

    Thanks for our collaborations! You are so talented

  • @adamhope  7 weeks

  • @krrisstin 7 weeks

    132 songs!? keep up the fantastic work. thank you so much for your kind comment on my song "path," i am amazed that you have time to listen to others' work and average 5+ songs posted per day!

  • @haim  7 weeks

    Wow, wow, wow. I didn't know someone can write so many songs in one month, I just saw your songs list and I'm totally impressed and wow-ed. Congrats on reaching 14, soon 140? awesome...

  • @tosm 7 weeks

    My goodness, you've been busy!

  • @heuristicsinc  7 weeks

    Thanks, yeah, I am not worried... over the weekend I went from 10 to 13 and hitting 12 was the "yeah, okay, I'll make it" moment. I have something that my daughter has been taking point on that I can post even if we don't finish it.

  • @andyt13  7 weeks

    Holy cow! Look at you go! I'm going to be here a spell. Rock on!

  • @kristi  7 weeks

    Hey Gordon! Sure! I would love that! See what speaks to you and I will take out the tags! Thank you!! 😀

  • @srcoops 8 weeks

    Thanks so much for doing Dream Girl. I know that it was a stretch to work it in but you made it turn out great.

  • @srcoops 8 weeks

    Sometimes one falls in love with his own stuff even though no one else takes notice. Dream Girl is in that category this year for me. You are super busy and I should not bother you but the temptation got to me.

  • @tjeff  8 weeks

    Thanks for listening and commenting - much appreciated!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 18

  • @srcoops Feb 16

    Cruisin at Midnight. This took place in eastern New Mexico at an air base. Six of us rode the 105 miles to Lubbock, had a cup of coffee, and drove back. Glad to have you do this one.

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 12

    So really how the heck do you already have 78!!!!

  • @emplate Feb 10

    Thanks for your comments on "Black Metal Terror - Nuclear Horror" and "Trickster Supreme", much appreciated! Heh, yeah, I aimed for apocalyptic visions with "Black Metal..." lyrics. I'm glad the track made you energised despite the dark vocabulary. : ) If you ask me, you can always surf the doomsday waves and enjoy the ride! : D I'm also glad you liked the lyrics and guitar sound of "Trickster", I was quite pleased with them myself. : )

  • @twyllodrus Feb 10

    Thanks for Comment in "Truck-fuck"

  • @cherok40  Feb 10

    Thank you for your nice comment - and yes, I had the ex-pm on my mind. 😀
    Wow, you are very productive. I'm looking forward to spend some time listening to some of these songs.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 8

    Hi Gordon... I love your version and will comment in a bit. Susan has also done a version too
    I have sent Willie a message about this. I actually love different versions and think my son and his wife would too.

  • @audrey  Feb 4

    Thanks for listening and for the kind words on my song Birth. Much appreciated.

  • @jessi14  Feb 3

    Hey, congratulations on 25 songs! Happy FAWMing. Nice to hear your songs again, I remember you from last year or the year before (Last year I was busy with uni and just wrote 2 or 3 songs..) Happy FAWMing!

  • @edwardsmusic Feb 3

    Thanks for commenting on my song "Talk to Me". I appreciate it.
    Also, it's not even a quarter through February and you've already well past the finish line! Good God!

  • @peterfedora  Feb 2

    14 songs in 4 hours! Wow! That ids prolific. You need to be giving us all tips. Granted I am coming in off a locked brain kind of life mode, but still... I need your expertise for tips of musical inspiration..... I just always see the same three chords in February for most of the time.....

    Well done though. Super effort.

  • @thetau  Feb 1

  • @wobbiewobbit  Jan 28

    hello again oh Prolific One, hope you have a great FAWM!

  • @thetau  Jan 26

    Hey there Gordon.
    This year I will be making several complete Mix&Mastered albums. I'd like to go over some of the songs we have co-written (past and Present), and put an album together after this year's FAWM, starting the work in March. This means we'll need to go over them all and have you re-record all the Vocals as separate Vox tracks for mixing, as This has not been done for the demos we did earlier. You've got my email, so let's touch Basses and get the details worked out
    Russ 😀

  • @nuj4x Jan 25

  • @srcoops Jan 21

    Hope to work with you again.
