2020 will apparently be my thirteenth FAWM. Wow.

I play in a few bands but for original stuff I'm mostly a basement musician (guitar with occasional bass/keys/drums), I use software tools (mostly RealTracks with Band-in-a-Box but occasionally straight up MIDI tricks) to try to hide/fix the defects and fill in the gaps.

I occasionally add accompaniment tracks to guitar/vocal and piano/vocal tracks created by other songwriters. Contact me if that's something you might like me to do for you and I'll send you a link to a couple of examples.

I have an inner critic named Edgar that I need to tie up and gag occasionally in order to get anything done. I was going to write a song about him but he told me it was a stupid idea. ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you want to collaborate on something, just ask. I'm fine with it most of the time unless someone else already has asked to work with whatever I've started.

A few of my current and former band mates are FAWMers including @axoqueen @jcuempire @dannen @jenniferjerboa

    Monty...just listened to Looking Back! Nice, reflective tone and music. I just posted it...if the demo link doesn't work let me know. Thanks again!

    Hi Monty. Okay, sure on Looking Back. No one's working on it.

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 11

    Thanks for explaining. "Garageband on steroids" is forever what I'll think of it as.

    Many thanks for the collab! An enjoyable and unexpected take. I hope others get to enjoy it, too. All the best for the rest of the challenge.
