[Update 2/8: My fawm21 has been upended by my brother-in-law's sudden critical stage of his illness, with my wife and I currently trekking from Maine to Virginia for what appears to be a sad vigil. I hope to keep writing lyrics when I can, then perhaps getting the music done a little later, and hopefully resuming fawm in full later in the month.--Andrew]
I feel such joy going into my 7th FAWM in 2021--and so glad to be with all of you. I also feel trepidation about starting to record and mix on Reaper, as a novice to DAW software; hopefully I can find joy buried there, too.
This year, I'll be fawming from an outpost in Maine, without all my equipment to distract me, but enough to get the job done.
I like to give and receive honest, constructive comments on songs--and regard comments given as thank-you's for those received.
I love to collaborate by writing lyrics for others to put to music. I am also glad to contribute singing (tenor lead or harmony) and guitar lead or comping, as needed. Have a great FAWM!
ASCAP. He and him.
Thanks so much for listening and the positive comments on my song ‘Trail of hope ‘ . Appreciate it 😊👋
I appreciate your comments on ‘Poverty Waltz’... I was going for the Woody Guthrie feel. I hope everything turned out okay for you in Virginia. I think we’re all just trying to keep the faith.
Thank your for your nice comment on Everything's Alright.
Thank so much for the appreciation and kind comments on 'Forever' 😀
Just posted the music. Again, sorry for the delay.
Sorry this is taking me so long Andy but I’ve been trying to brush up on my banjo chops.
Good idea! I’ll see what I can do. Thanks!
Thanks so much for your kind words on “Skibbereen”! (BTW, I’ve now replaced the original recording with a livelier version.)
Thank you for the feedback on "The Devil's Playground", I was going to write a third verse which probably would have a little more story in it but I didn't want the song to get to long.
By the way: Some guitars are also welcome if you feel to do something. Just saying.
Hi Andrew! Lyrics are always welcome!
Hey man. Looking forward to hear you`re music. Soon I hope!
Heya Andrew ! 'Running Blind' is yours for FAWM ! I'll add you are collab now.
It's great to see you back too. I don't know why you dropped off my watchlist (you're not the first or probably the last) but that's corrected now. Thanks for remembering "Og", a particularly silly one but memorable, I guess! Happy FAWMing.
Hey Andrew. I’m Eric and I’m looking forward to working with you. Let me know when you want to get started and we can discuss a method. Happy FAWM!
Hey there Andrew ! Happy FAWMing !
Hey Andrew! Thanks! I hope you have a great FAWM, and I hope all is ok with you.
Hi Andrew - likewise! Have a great FAWM!
Hello friend! Glad to see you’re back
Rest easy - saw your flag was accidental, so I've removed it. It happens. Happy FAWMing!
Good to see you too!! Happy FAWMing! 😁
Hey Andrew! Hope you have a great FAWM!
Hello! Happy FAWM2021!
Ah my dear friend good to see you and hopefully some collabs this year. Its been two years since our last one
sweet, happy to see you here!
Hey, glad to see you're back. I'm looking forward to hearing your songs as well!
Reaper has a bit of a learning curve but if you stick with it it's totally worth it. It's really changed my music making for the better.
Hey Andrew, I'm looking forward to hearing what you come up with!
