I'm a fiddle player (who sometimes also plays the violin!) and I love to sing. I've written more instrumentals than songs with lyrics so far but would like that to change!
This will be my FIFTH FAWM and I now have a 10 month old baby girl plus a very active 4yo boy - might be tricky to get much done this year. But I'll try my best and just enjoy stopping by to listen and chat to all you beautiful people.
I am still loving playing the banjo (clawhammer style) and am very excited to start recording a full album in 2021 with my bestie and fellow FAWMer @dani312 in our duo Corn Nut Creek.
As always, I love to collaborate but am still pretty time poor so will have to play it by ear.
Hope you like it. It's a song for busy people who maybe need a rest... Zzzzzzz
Ok!!! I’ve got a complete lyric after two false starts and I’m really happy. Just heading out to make a demo... TANANDLIZ SONG!!!! YAAAAAAAY! (Insert Kermit style expression).
Whaddya want? Lyrics? Chords? Or do you wanna send me something? A banjo chord progression would be nice, just 2 or three chords?
Hey Tan, wanna collaborate?
Helloooo! Lovely to see you on here again! 😃
Hiya! Yes I’m back and going great guns this year. 5 from me and 3 from Karl in just six days. I’m in full COVID lockdown so Karl hasn’t been able to come over and do any recording for many many months.
I’m on my own here so lots of time, but Karl, like you has 2 children and his girlfriend to keep him very busy!
My computer died a few days ago so I’ve been using my phone to do all my songs. So no collabs this year, unless you have GarageBand...
Hope you manage to get a couple of tracks done.
I didn't think I'd be up for it, yet here I am... Hoping you have a similar experience. And if not thats ok too! Love you and can't wait to see you in TWENTY DAYS! <3
Heya! Just 1 week till FAWM!
With all the turmoil since last FAWM, & especially since November, it's hard to feel quite as amped up about it.
"Unnecessary creation" just feels a little less necessary than usual.
But...the artists (music & video creators, especially) are arguably the most influential modern-day philosophers, & every day/week/month/year we spend honing our craft is a day/week/month/year invested in contribution to culture, no matter how small our circle of influence.
Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.
hey heyy Tan!
I hope you are doing amazing & happy FAWM!
