2021 will apparently be my fourteenth 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

    Congrats on hitting 14x14, Monty! (Though I seem to remember you going above 14 at least a few of the years I've been here).

    Hi Monty! ๐Ÿ˜Š Sorry to be so late saying 'hi'! The February days have simply melted into each other.
    Congratulations on your FAWM win.

    Incidentally, if you are OK with my version. Could you please send me the BIAB file for ti. I'd love to learn the chords to play it for myself. Thanks.... My email is on my profile page.

    You never got back to me on my request for permission to write some lyrics to "Gentle Snowfall" - today I listened to it again and had an idea for the lyrics. I hope you don't mind that I have gone ahead and posted them. No snow, but lots of Mediterranean sunshine ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @monty Enjoyed what you did for those Endless Shadows. I added you as a collaborator if you want to load up the link. Thanks.

    Hi Monty...just seeing the comments on "Traveler..."...segers also wants to take a shot at music...sounds like you're both open to multiple takes on it and that's fine with me if you want to play with it!

    Hi Monty, Always good to see you. We go back a long way. I think it was 2004 or 2005. Happy Fawming
