[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 😊👋

    @tiller2 Thank you so much for your appreciation. This is my first FAWM and it has been a delightful journey thanks to wonderful souls like you. Thank you.

  • @bobjestes  7 weeks

    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.

  • @billgcaldwell  7 weeks

    Thank your for your nice comment on Everything's Alright.

  • @gb9  7 weeks

    Thank so much for the appreciation and kind comments on 'Forever' 😀

  • @erbaer  7 weeks

    Just posted the music. Again, sorry for the delay.

  • @erbaer  Feb 19

    Sorry this is taking me so long Andy but I’ve been trying to brush up on my banjo chops.

  • @nancihobson1  Feb 8
    that's where I got the explosion on Fire in the Hole I had to set up an account, but it only took a second and so far they are not bombarding me with any emails.

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 7

    Good idea! I’ll see what I can do. Thanks!

  • @andrewjtaylor  Feb 7

    I opted for something more old-fashioned & strophic in nature, but I'll think about if/how a chorus would fit in. Thanks for taking the time to listen/comment on "Little Black Box" @tiller2!

  • @scubed  Feb 6

    Thanks so much for your kind words on “Skibbereen”! (BTW, I’ve now replaced the original recording with a livelier version.)

  • @wacha  Feb 6

    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.

  • @engebretsen  Feb 6

    By the way: Some guitars are also welcome if you feel to do something. Just saying.

  • @engebretsen  Feb 6

    Hi Andrew! Lyrics are always welcome!

  • @engebretsen  Feb 5

    Hey man. Looking forward to hear you`re music. Soon I hope!

  • @ajna1960  Feb 2

    Heya Andrew ! 'Running Blind' is yours for FAWM ! I'll add you are collab now.

  • @jonmeta  Feb 1

    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.

  • @erbaer  Jan 31

    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, 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.

  • @andygetch  Jan 10

    Hey Andrew, I'm looking forward to hearing what you come up with!
