Hey Everyone, ready to go. Hope everyone is making it through the miasma.
Like everyone had a weird year, been out of work since June, passed the Real Estate exam, waiting on the license to come through, which will probably come through around the beginning of Feb. so my time may be limited for FAWm in Feb. For this reason, for the first time, I'm going to do some prep work in Jan.
Hey a set up a challenge in the forums give it a whirl https://fawm.org/forums/topic/10925/
My summation of 2020 FAWM
I was able to complete 14 songs in 28 days and then I did 4 on the 29th day. It turns out I went for thievery this year, Trying to do a reasonable facsimile of an artist (mostly from the 70's, some 60's and a little 80's).
I did harmonies on almost every tune, and most were done without being worked out, just listening in singing along, while not perfect, I'm really happy with the results.
I played real actual bass guitar on a couple of tracks. 1 track that was all real live instruments thanks to @zecoop drums.
I played some lead guitar that I was happy with and didn't have to bury in the mix.
I did an entire FAWM without a single blatant Tom Waits-ism (still got the comparisons).
I was absolutely horrible at documentation this year, I usually have the chords somewhere on my lyric sheet, not so much this year, not a one as I look at them.
I also managed to accumulate more than a months worth of laundry and dirty dishes somehow.
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
