A very amateur musician who knows he not good but plays because it makes him happy. This is my first year with FAWM so I honestly don't know what to expect. But like most things in life I will give it a try, work hard at it, and hopefully have some fun in the process.

Hey just wanted to say thank you for the comments you left on my song. It is much appreciated. 😁
Good thing you dont understand Afrikaans: song about political problems in our country is always controversial: power outtages and corruption and then they wait for you to pay your taxes... thanks for listening!
So nice to meet you this FAWM - really enjoyed our interaction. Hope to see you next year.
sorry for the duplicate post. don't know how i did that... lol
Thank you SO much for your feedback on my Electro Swing song. Yeah, great idea about the vocals but in full disclosure, I’m hoping to submit this song to a library listing and they don’t want vocals. I’ve got a week to get it right. Ack!
Thank you for taking the time to listen to my slightly deranged take on Pachelbel! 😁😎
The tags? Well, it started taking over my life at the weekend. What was going to be a two-minute hackabout has turned into a monster. 😂
Thank you for the comment on "Keep On Holding On". Thanks for the comparison to Hank Sr. I don't think that has happened. There are so many of his songs I love and have played over the years. I appreciate the listen.
Thanks for the comment and opinion!
Thanks for you kind comments! Much appreciated!
Hi, about Lithuanian songs, I was focusing on English ones at the moment, but I definitely could do that. Thanks for the suggestion.
Electro Swing - oh my! Hope I can do it! Thanks for the comment on “Mine Tonight.”
Thanks for the kind words! Best to you.
You are too kind! I do this FAWM thing because it's fun and I love the music and the community. Once I get rolling, it's hard to stop. 😀
Thanks for your comment on my tune, bud! I love Jonathan Coulton, always a joy to be lumped in with him. Looking forward to digging through your stuff
Okay, no relation then. I had to ask - I saw a resemblance.
Thanks for listening to” Candy Apple Red Shoes.” Funny thing about dance music. That seems to be what I do best. Must be my old Disco days. 😊
Thanx for the comment on "The Twenty Three".
Yeah, FAWM is good for experimentation, and anything goes, which is why I do spoken word stuff.
I'll definitely be back!
Thanks for the comment on Bridges. Maybe we need a '2 Chord Challenge'!
Thanks a ton - I really do appreciate that! This place is the best and I look forward to it every year. It totally changed my musical life in 2011 when I joined. The more you participate, the more people you will get to know and I have friends all over the world, that I've never met. 😀
Keep enjoying your first FAWM! 😀
Thanks for the comment on '24 Hours To Midnight'. Lot of good uses for an SM57, of course!
Thank you for your thoughtful comments on Lydian Odyssey. I loved the intention and the execution on FRPF at M51. I used to spend some time with a telescope so these images of M51 conjures up vivid (if blurry) memories. Your image of a robot musicians is very poetic.
Thanks for your comment on Sugar! Have also been there, done that. Welcome to FAWM -- this is my first year trying it out as well!
Thanks a ton for checking out my first surf tune... The Hammond made it all come together, in my opinion. Nice when that happens, especially since I just fiddle around by ear. Glad you liked it!
This dude's been rocking this challenge so far.. 2 days in and he's currently finishing up his 2nd song. WAY TO GO! I like the one he's about to upload... I'm special.. I get advanced copies of his work 😮).
Welcome to FAWM!
Hi Thanks for you comments on 12 ways of Christmas this was a random word challenge that came out well I have some musical direction will let you know when demo is up
Thanks for your kind words on my German song.
If all the world truly was a stage, then William Yorick felt he had a bit part at best. After studying for years to become a Shakespearean actor, he found that dramatic monologues didn't put bread on the table. So, desperate for work, he had accepted a job as a gravedigger.
He figured that while gravedigging was an unusual job, there wasn't really anything wrong with it. After all, one of Shakespeare's best scenes involved a gravedigger. Sure, the work was hard and dirty, but William had never shied away from honest labor before.
That, of course, was before the weird corpses began turning up. Strange, inhuman things, they caused William's flesh to crawl and his palms to sweat. He began to see strangers watching him wherever he went, and he knew instinctively that taking the corpses to the University would be the last mistake he ever made.
Which is why William finds himself in the pews at South Church. While he has never been a particularly religious man, he finds that Father Michael usually has good advice. Today, William feels like that could make all the difference in the world.
The name: William Yorick, the Gravedigger
The hook: "Secrets of the Dead"
And by the way, welcome to FAWM!
Welcome! The city will be busy this weekend. This is my second time around doing this challenge I think you’ll enjoy it a lot
Ha ha, well done!
Welcome to the madness--- 14 songs in 28 days!! --- I noticed you left a response to some of the welcoming committee here on your soundboard yesterday. FAWM is sort of weird this way, but the best way to respond to someone's comments is by going to their profile and leaving a response on their soundboard. This will especially be true when people comment on your songs. Often we visit your new song page for a listen and leave a comment but wouldn't revisit the page and see your response to the comment. We'll notice the response if you put it on our soundboard. I hope this makes sense. You'll see it better once the song posting opens up tomorrow. Best of luck!
Welcome and have fun...
I hope you dive in deep and let it take you away like nothing else can...
You’ll discover that February will become your favorite m9nth of the year..
Reach out as much as you can
Hey! Welcome to FAWM! Your bio sounds like my bio when I joined 3 years ago. I still don't think I'm any good 😝 but people here are so good at finding positives that it doesn't really matter anyway! So long as you're having fun, wooop 😁
Welcome to FAWM! This is my second year here, and I can safely say it is a great place to explore your creativity! There’s some things to get your head around (eg - to comment back to folks you have to go direct to their profile to do it, they won’t be told if your respond in your own space - this is especially valuable to know when you respond to feedback on your songs) but the more you engage, the more you’ll get from it 🙂
Thank you all for the welcome.
Play because it makes you happy! Perfect! Welcome to FAWM
Hi and welcome to FAWM! From reading your bio I am kinda the same way and I think you'll like it here!
