Influences: This year, my influences will probably be varied. I became a fan of Kings of Leon's last 4 albums (and disappointed in their first couple as I picked them up in thrift shops). So I'll probably go there but seriously need drums to pull anything off like that. I will probably do some DCFC-like songs this year. The War on Drugs - I would love to rip-off some of the mastery of the gauzy two-chord songs this guy has done. Fantastic. Also love Sufjan Stevens Carrie and Lowell/Seven Swans/Michigan kind of beauty.
This is my 13th FAWM. It was in my 1st or 2nd FAWM that I started the idea of FAWMku in January, to get the creative juices flowing. It has taken on a life of it's own and that makes me happy as a very small way to give back to this great community.
I am up for collabs - I play guitars, bass and keys and sing. Collabs will be with lyricists that have 'safe for work' lyrics.
Some of my collaboration capabilities that are not so common here on FAWM:
I have added B3 to several FAWMer's past offerings - if you don't know what that is, you probably aren't looking for it - which is cool.
Synth leads and beds
Maybe drums using EZ Drummer.
Freestyling acoustic piano and singing to lyrics without music.
Other stuff like that.
I made a promo video for FAWM 2019, if you would like to see it or share it... https://youtu.be/xP5_fKoScHw
No songs by this fawmer (yet).
Hey man. I know it’s been a while since we’ve had a one-on-one, but do you think we might be able to work on something this FAWM?
Nice band, interesting arrangements, I think of the tunes you shared that Charge was the one that piqued my interest the most. I think I understand what you're aiming for.
I am not that familiar with Elbow, think I have heard a tune or two. But I'll give them a spin, any recommended album or songs.
I don’t plan on doing collabs this year but I’m looking forward to hearing your sounds. ☺️🤘🏻
Hi Scott happy fawming. Let's see what we can come up with, I'll certainly keep you in mind.
Welcome back, Scott!
My bid was not successful! What a wild ride...
Not til Fri/Sat. Then I'll prob sleep for three days readjusting to Central time and then reorganize the home studio.
Happy Fawming, Scott!
FAWM is upon us... Bring it Scott - It's always awesome to hear!
Yes, I am a 77s fan. 😀 Cheers!
Hey, if you can help me, that would be great. I already said in the thread, I'm not much of a DIY guy... but I'm open for suggestions anyway. You can find me in the slack chat or throw me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
