    I am at the stage of life where nothing is a sure thing. FAWM has been a great last minute thing to put in my life's bag. I hope to be around for next year but, if not, it has been great fun. Thank you all!

  • @gordon  1 day

    Just read your comment. Ha, ha, your lyrics make my music look good! Honestly, good lyrics are hard to come by, and you have a knack of writing lyrics which are easy to relate to and simply stated. For me the collaborations by people from all over the planet are what makes FAWM such fun!

  • @gordon  1 day

    Hello again! I hope you don't mind, but I had a go at Home. I just thought the lyrics needed to be sung, and as no one had done so yet....

  • @sapient  3 days

    Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€
    I wanted to do something that would take me out of my comfort zone, and rather like the idea of a calm song about rage.
    I'll get it posted!

  • @sapient  3 days

    How does this sound to you?
    http://files.fawmers.org/FAWM_2019/sa...
    It's a bit of a different one for me!

  • @sapient  6 days

    That looks like both encouragement for my thinking on the music for a new song (thanks!) and a fantastic life motto all rolled into one ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @sapient  6 days

    Ah.. That's the sort of thing I like! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Can you give me a couple of days to work on it, then we can post it with the words and music together at the same time?

  • @sapient  1 week

    Hey there! I still have us marked for a song together before the month is out! I might try something a bit different this time, so will spend some time with your lyrics in the coming days to see what sparks...

  • @nancyrost  1 week

    Thank you, Mr. Coops! It looks like you're having an inspired FAWM so far - looking forward to catching up on more of your stuff.

  • @chipwithrow  1 week

    Yes, indeed - I'd love to put Old Friends to music! Don't add me as a collab just yet - I want to do guitar/vocal and then add banjo. It will take me a day or two to brush up on my picking.

  • @srcoops 1 week

    I don't think I have posted this before

  • @ghostinyourpiano 2 weeks

    Hullo! I'll certainly keep an eye out and see if anything really speaks to me ๐Ÿ˜

  • @gordon  2 weeks

    Hello again Scroops. I couldn't resist doing something with Shrinking world and hope you don't mind. The only thing I changed was to add the first line again at the end to sort of round things off a bit. Really nice lyric and I hope I have done it justice.

  • @metalfoot  2 weeks

    here's what I came up with for "Hate" -- if you like it, I'll post it officially.

    Let me know!

  • @nancyrost  2 weeks

    Eighth grade! That is wonderful! Really enjoyed working with your words, and so glad you like the music. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @timfatchen  2 weeks

    11?? I need to get my much younger (ha!) body and brain into action...

  • @nancyrost  2 weeks

    I have a different suggestion for co-writing: Can I send you some music for you to write lyrics to, then I'll record the vocal over that? It might take me a day or two to get to it. Let me know what you think.

  • @max  2 weeks

    Thanks. May that day be years away!

    Thanks for your quick response. Can't wait to record a nice rendition of "The Uninvited Guest"! Any preference for a musical genre?

  • @gordon  2 weeks

    There you are, see what you think. I just repeated a couple of verses from the beginning and sang the title at the end.

  • @timfatchen  2 weeks

    We gotta keep the geezers' end up!

  • @ghostinyourpiano 2 weeks

    Hullo! I'd love to work with some of your words! ๐Ÿ˜

  • @chipwithrow  2 weeks

    Hi to you, too! OSU '88 here, wife '93. I'll be sure to check out your lyrics!

  • @nuj4x 3 weeks

  • @gordon  4 weeks

    Looking forward to writing songs again, and also to see what you come up with in your lyrics. Not long to wait now...

  • @guatecoop  4 weeks

    Hey there, Dad! I am really looking forward to reading and hearing what you come up with this year. I would love to be able to put some music to your ideas this year. You are also hooked up with some great people around FAWM, so you should have a good year again. I would love for my wife to sing another of your songs this year, so keep them coming my way!

  • @coolparadiso  4 weeks

    Im on the road. But if i can i will try and do a collab again this year

  • @sapient  4 weeks

    Can't wait to see your lyrics again this year... Who knows what might happen! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • @sjbatavia  4 weeks

    Hey there SrCoops, I'm looking forward to it. Let's see if we can make a little music in 2019!

  • @toms  4 weeks

    Absolutely.

  • @wacha  4 weeks

    Hopefully we can collaborate again this year!

  • @nancyrost  4 weeks

    I'd like that!

  • @metalfoot  4 weeks

    Well, good sir, I hope we can make a couple songs together again this year!

  • @zecoop  4 weeks

    I know that you are ready to go... I hope this year is even more fun than past years! ๐Ÿ˜€
