I'll be here in 2019, losing sleep and numbing my ears and fingertips. Not sure about collabs yet, so I'll take a tentative approach until we get into it.
I appreciate you.

Thanks muchly for the goofy comment on my goofy song.
Thank you so much for the comment on Carry Me Home! Glad you enjoyed it!
I need you to write another song about me 😉
Guten tag, mein Herr. Wie gehts? Glückliche Schreiben.
Thanks for song comments!!!
Thanks for heads up, no worries about it taking time. I've been ill from day 2 of fawm so taking your time worked out well for me.
Hey John! Wish we were morphing together this year. We're on different lists, but have fun, and I'm looking forward to hearing your tunes when they come around. 😮)
Hi John! Thanks for finding me and commenting - looking forward to FAWMing with everyone!!
Hey, thanks a lot! Won't have as much time this year but hopefully I'll get a least a few songs done. Wishing you a great FAWM!
some, hopefully some : )
t e n y e a r s
Nice to see you another year! Happy FAWMing!
You're an awesome human. Thanks for always being so damn supportive 😀
I know, right? It feels a bit like going to the dark side.
Mind you, I still just play it with downstrokes in E Phyrigian, so maybe not that much of a difference...
Nice to see you here again 😁
Oh, is it that time of year already? I’ll be around. Not feeling very into it right now but we’ll see what happens 😀.
Could be lack of oxygen! 😁
re: Firm Grape - Is that our new band name? Or maybe just a song title? Or possible nothing other than a conversation starter that *hopefully* leads to a collab? I'll take it.
Happy New FAWM. As a Spanish woman once said to me “The perfect is the enemy of the good.”
FAWM. Madison. Perfect February, don’t you think?
Ahh, Crossman - so good to see you're back for more FAWMtastic action!
Happy FAWM 2019 to ya
Your presence at FAWM is one of the few rock solid things that can be depended on.
I bask in your consistency... lead us!
JOHNNNNNNNN!!!!!! I want to just have a FAWMSTOCK...with YOU!!
Let's have a JOHNSTOCK!
Or, Gee & Johnstock?
I also like, punctuation.
So much work. So little shmork. Numb ears are a definite FAWM symptom for me too. I hear mixing at low volume is a great thing since it forces you to really exercise compressors and eq... That's advice I'm terrible at following.
Heya, JX. I'm down with tentative approaches.
Excited to FAWM and post-FAWM (gig) with you!
