Hi! I'm Linz (she/her) and this is my first FAWM! I've always watched and encouraged Joe (@unkept) with his songwriting, and now that I bought a lute, I would like to write some lute pieces and perhaps bard songs. Never written a song before, so this should be interesting!
Have you thought of using field recordings as backing tracks? You can borrow some of the sonic richness of the location. You might not have thought of the notion before, but it would anchor your wandering bard to a location for the duration of a song. It can get distracting to look for them, so it might wait until after FAWM, but it occurred to me that it may be something of interest to you. (I've used CC0 / public domain tracks from freesound.org.)
If you're curious for a concrete example, here's a track of mine that came to mind: https://mrbeany.bandcamp.com/track/my... (ambient playground with a periodic monster).
Thanks for the comment on "Up In the Air."
I'm looking at your song count, and I wanted to remind you that it is okay to look like a beginner when you're beginning. It's only by practicing your songwriting skills that you'll get better. FAWM is a super friendly place for beginning songwriters.
You can do it!!
Haha, danke für deinen lieben Kommentar, habe heute schon aus Jux gesagt, nächstes Jahr schreibe ich CritRole Songs^^
Aber ob ich Matt Mercers World Building Skills gerecht werde, bleibt abzuwarten 😀
Welcome! Excited to hear what you come up with! And FAWM definitely needs some more lute up in here(:
Thank you for mentioning your pronouns! It reminded me that I'd forgotten to mention mine.
Welcome aboard! I'm also part of the filk community and I look forward to reading/hearing your songs. Good luck!
Hi Linz. Like the others, I'm looking forward to hearing the lute. Have a brilliant FAWM! 😀
Hi Linz and welcome to FAWM. I hope that you enjoy your time here and I am looking forward to hearing that lute!
Viel Spaß! Bin gespannt 😀
Hey! Welcome to FAWM and I hope it's good fun for you! 😀
You know very well the answer to whether Michigan weather is treating me well. My answer is “I’ll be in the basement studio all February”. 🤣😂
Lute! That's ambitious. Hope your first year is awesome.
I'm looking forward to what you come up with! According to your husband, we have a Berrien Springs connection. I grew up near there and my son lives/works there. 😀
Hooray for "interesting!" Have a wonderful and productive first FAWM!
