Influences: FAWMers for sure. Also Classic Rock and Blues players. Oh, and Eric Distad. :-)
2021 - My 4th FAWM!
(Am I really doing this again?)
It's so hard to even think about writing songs this year. My company has been working LOTS of extra hours for months. It's been a bit exasperating. So, writing songs this year... we'll see what happens.
First - Have fun.
Then, in no particular order:
- Aim for 14
- Focus more on the song and less on the production
- Collab with my favorite collaborator
- Write & record with a friend locally
- Get a couple of new blues songs
- Teach our new kitten to swat the computer screen on beat, instead of randomly attacking anything that moves (Okay, that one's a stretch)
Thank you so much to everyone here who has been such an encouragement. Like so many others, I would not have continued without such a great community.

Thank you for your kind comment on 'Keep me guessing' In the chorus, if it's plucked its a bass loop and if its bowed its cello. Though now I'm wondering if it could work for two cellos.
Thx for the comments on Gotta get better. And congrats that you made 14 this year
Thank you so much for the kind words about "No Hurry". I appreciate them.
Glad you enjoyed "Kil'd By Several Accidents"! THanks for taking the time to check it out!
Thanks for commenting!
Thx. for your comment on Old School Blues.
I think most people love a little blues now and then
Thanks for the feedback on "We Only Get So Much Time" -- it's always so gratifying to hear that a song resonates with someone else. At the end of the day, that's really what art is for, really... Thanks again!
Three cheers for cut capos!! I hacksawed my first one around 1999 or 2000. What a revelation! I sure wish i could fingerpick, though... 😉
A most excellent FAWM to you good sir! Let us make the merry noises that sound vaguely music like... and stuff. 😀
"How will anyone recognize you? 😀"
DUDE YOU'RE BLOWING MY COVER
For real, though, a very happy FAWM to you, and I hope you and yours are well!
