Artist Bio

Writing songs since 2017 but first time on FAWM. Any tips would be appreciated! I love singer-songwriters like Dar Williams, Nick Drake and Elliott Smith, but I also love rock, bluegrass, and songs sung by Fred Astaire in those great black and white movies!!

    Great songs at the FAWMOVER party!

  • @markg  8 weeks

    Thanks for listening. Will you be tuning in to the Massachusetts AfterFAWM party this Friday?

  • @leslie333 Mar 3

    Thank you so much for your kind words! You've always been inspiration with the songs you've shared in our uke meetups! I'm always intrigued by what you come up with and as I think I've said fairly often, I can imagine a lot of your songs at that crucial moment in the movie! It's been quite a fun journey doing this FAWM with you, and our gang.

    Congratulations on the win! And thanks for dropping in and listening to ‘Perfection’. I appreciate your kind words!

    The number one key to speed: practice. My first FAWM I was just happy to hit 14.

    I like to say that if it were a video game and we had songwriting stats, I would have put everything in to increasing my speed. My speed would be maxed out, but at the sake of everything else.

    My specialty is lyrical improvisation. I discover the lyrics and melody as I sing it for the first time. It means my top-speed for songwriting is real-time. Early on this involved asking my kids what I should sing to them at bedtime, and then making up a new song for them in the moment. At first, the songs were pretty short. It's taken a lot of practice to be where I am now.

    For most folks, I recommend practicing your "song skirmish skills". The skirmishes are one-hour songwriting challenges. Once you can comfortably make a song in an hour, suddenly there's _way_ more time in the month than there used to be. 😀

    Thanks for your comments on my "Sailing Away" - I also come from three generations of Irish/ Liverpool sailors too So the sea really is in my blood.

  • @bobjestes  Mar 1

    Hi Liz. I want to, again thank you for your great comments. You are picking up on a lot of things I’m expressing. Also thank you for liking my instrumental parts. It’s much appreciated.

    My younger son is the real talented one, a born artist complete with the artistic temperament.

    He is quite a successful tattoo artist, @xiharrington on Instagram

    Congratulations on a win on your first FAWM!

    I noticed that you did better just 14 songs. Has anyone told you about 50/90 yet? It starts in July, and is 50 songs in 90 days. (Though lots of folks don't aim for 50 songs.) https://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/

  • @tukayandryan  Feb 28

    Thank you for your lovely comments on our songs. They mean a lot to us! And congratulations for winning FAWM!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 27

    Yeah, the Periodic Table series started as a joking challenge from @stephenwordsmith but I am just silly enough that I went with it and have been chipping away at it for a few years now. My goal is to hopefully be done with it by 2023.

  • @kenmattsson  Feb 27

    Congrats on winning FAWM! You've done so well here!

  • @scubed  Feb 27

    I had some unexpected scheduling issues pop up today, so it looks as if I can’t get to “Frozen Lake” until Sunday. If you decide before then to musicate it yourself, or to collab with someone else, no worries - just let me know. 😊

  • @scubed  Feb 26

    Thanks so much for your very kind comment on my collab with @cindyrella!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 25

    Keep em guessing, that's my motto 😉 Thanks for the listen to Irrational Numbers!

  • @kenmattsson  Feb 25

  • @bobjestes  Feb 22

    Thank-you Liz. I so appreciate your comments on my songs. With this being my first FAWM, it is encouraging to know someone is following and appreciating my efforts!

  • @metalfoot  Feb 22

    I have a wide diversity of styles in my collection this year-- thanks for the listens and I'll try to get at some more of yours later on. Lunch break is over now!

    Welcome to FAWM! I'm glad you liked the Shores song. As a cross country skier, I find the snow takes away some of my writing time.

  • @estebanlartigue  Feb 20

    thank you for the comments in the melody for the esperanto song!

  • @dreamisover Feb 19

    Thanks for listening to my song "My Way Is The Highway" and leaving some nice comments. Really appreciate it.

  • @bobjestes  Feb 18

    Thanks for your comments. I was pleased with the results of ‘21 Words’... wasn’t sure if I could pull it off. Again, thanks!

  • @dantanz1 Feb 18

    Thanks so much!! Dan

  • @dantanz1 Feb 17

    Sorry- I had second thoughts about sharing it publicly, so I pulled it. Thanks for your support and understanding. 😀 Dan

  • @cherok40 Feb 14

    Thanks a lot for listening to "Lullaby For A Cat". Synth used for the strings... the other instruments are live. 😀

  • @mikeb Feb 13

    Thanks for the comment on my week 2 challenge song!

  • @dantanz1 Feb 12

    Not exactly three finger style (which would be more of a bluegrass style)- this is more a Pete Seeger style, bum-diddy pattern. Thanks for the comment! -Dan

  • @dantanz1 Feb 12

    Thank you so much my friend! Much appreciated! Warm regards, Dan

  • @theodamus  Feb 9

    So do I! I have my uke strung with a low G too, we must both have good taste 😀 I haven’t done a uke song yet this fawm so it’s must be time!
