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 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? 😀"


    For real, though, a very happy FAWM to you, and I hope you and yours are well!
