2020 will be my 6th FAWM.
I've used various names over the years, including this one, and this year I'm feeling whispermouse-y.
Last year I completed 14 rock songs, each with drums, bass, guitar solos, etc. This year, I'm setting myself a completely different challenge:
- 14 songs
- all acoustic
- NO GUITAR (this will be hard)
- centered around New England folklore
I have a bunch of wonderful instruments, but the guitar was my first love, and it's the one I always reach for when writing. This year, I'd like to stretch a bit and attempt to write 14 songs without using the guitar. I'm sure it'll sneak in there, but I'm going to try.
I'd also like to try to keep my lyrical themes centered around the rich folklore and general mood of my native New England.
|#1||Devil Rock Road||
|#3||Take it Slow||
|#13||Anemones (Explore the Core 2020)||
|#15||Factory Town (electric)||
Congrats on hitting 14,no, 15! songs
Nevermind, I just tried singing the chorus near my phone, while not recording. I guess Siri doesn't like my singing voice!
I think it helped that I was recording into my phone. Siri might have perked up if I'd been recording on the computer
Thank you so much for your supportive comments on my skirmish Sugar Song. Much appreciated!
That's the plan! We get a little closer one FAWM at a time.
I've learned that you're supposed to poke a little hole in the dumpling, and let the soup spill out into your spoon, then sip the soup, then eat the dumpling! I...still just eat the whole thing at once and risk burning my mouth anyway lol
Hey Whispertune, thanks for comment on my song Bobby Ate His Food I appreciate it.
Thanks for your comments, glad you liked my skirmish chip tune. I had a lot of fun making it.
Thanks so much for your comment on “King Midas”!
Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. 😀
All acoustic, no guitar, and centered on New England folklore? You have my attention. Ha! Really liking your stuff this year. And thank you for your comment on my song as well!
Hey, thanks for your feedback on Coming Home! 😀
Of course I'll be running the skirmishes! Have fun this FAWM 😀
Well if you want a challenge then limiting yourself from your most comfortable instrument could produce some interesting results. Good luck
Thanks for the watch! Good luck this year! Looking forward to hearing what you come up with.
Hello! Folklore is always good. 😁 Have a great FAWM!
