Successful Engineer and struggling farmer. Playing the guitar for 24 years and I should have more to show for it 😀
Thank you very much for your comments and taking the time to listen to my track. 😀
Many thanks for your comment on "Have a Nice Day". Much appreciated. I'll be sure to come back and check out your songs. Happy FAWMing.
I think you're doing great with your two songs! I have only ever actually finished one song. Thank you for your feedback and I look forward to seeing what you come up with this year!
Thanks for the comment on "This Promise." Just checked out your song and added you to my watchlist! Welcome to FAWM!! 😀
Hey man, glad to have you here! According to your bio, you are a struggling farmer, or fawmer? 😀 I spent 15 years as a part-time farmer/rancher. Never threw myself entirely into it, so I never made a living at it. Anyhow - dive in, play around, get involved on the forums, and have a great time!
Hey man! Welcome to FAWM! You're going to love it.
My first year here I was really apprehensive and worried about whether I'd write enough songs or whether people would like any of them. By the end of it I had a new respect and love for the art of songwriting and an appreciation for the idea that good songs come from writing lots and lots of average or even bad songs. Not only that - I was overwhelmed by the genuine friendliness in this place. In the end we're all here to do this same thing:
The people here are super supportive, positive and encouraging. It's an atmosphere that makes it easy to fall in love with music and songwriting all over again.
Its cheesy and cliché but places like this are proof that even after 24 years of playing guitar, it's never too late to create something to show for it!
You got this!
I be watching you.
Yes yes! Awesome. Thanks for joining. I hope you have an amazing FAWM.
The key thing to remember is that FAWM is about progression, not perfection. Don't overthink it. Just smash it out and upload it.
This is a super positive community. It works best when you participate with it, so take some time to give ears to other people too.
Also if you venture into the forums, you'll find people doing fun games like Skirmishes, where you have 60 mins to write a song based on a set theme, and a host of other madness.
Just remember not to take it too seriously. We're all here to have a jol.
