I'm giving it a shot, my 2nd year. Last year I wrote the 14 songs but didn't record any. I use this account for FAWM:

this is probably a dumb idea, but i could use a kick in the pants where making songs is concerned.

edit: specifically it's a dumb idea because i'm so busy. but i want to write more songs anyway. we're working on buying a new house, moving, and having another baby. ha!

I want to do it, but my output has been sluggish lately, so I doubt I'd succeed.

I ned to write more songs. I really should do this.

I have being playing live a bit recently - and am getting sick of my stuff. How many times can you sing about Natalie freaking Portman. (Damn I hope she wins an Oscar - I might sound relevant again)

Well I'm just coming back from India and "yes" I've brought back a beautiful Sitar. Got a theremin for my 40th this year from my wife and a Lap Steel for Christmas. Since I was unable to do last year due to work, I'm going to endeavour to tackle that beast this year. When I completed FAWM two years ago it was the most satisfying thing I did.

Tonetripper's in.

Welcome back Toney!

Heh! My wife bought me home a sitar when she went to India a few years ago. I broke a string not long after I got it and have been dreading the thought of trying to restring it ever since.

And my first song is done.

It's just a demo, and I'm having some difficulty encoding it into mp3, so I can't share it just yet, but it's done.

I'm in too: http://fawm.org/fawmers/tuuur/
Not that I can do much right now, I am at home, sick with vertigo and have no recording equipment here right now... but I need new songs and this seems a good idea for getting some songs done.
