I am in the 2nd day of the FAWM songwriting challenge. Here is my home page. The songs are linked to my reverbnation account. I began using My Space but the Reverbnation is a little more viewer friendly, as you can post a link to the individual songs. I hope you will give them a listen and let me know what you think.

Song # 5 is complete. It is a challenge song. The challenge was to write a song and talk about nothing. Here is my song.

Nothing

Song # six is up it is called God is Faithful and True. It is 6:31 long. Grab a sandwich and sit down in front of the computer and stay awhile, ha, ha. If you have time give it a listen. The vocal is rough, I will try to put a better vocal on tomorrow. Can't promise anything though. Here is a link to it.

Robert,

You are on fire!

I thought about trying it but I'm too slow and chicken. One of these days...maybe...if I can get up the nerve. LOL.

So far you've some great ideas going. I'll wait until it's over and you pick your keepers with your final mixes to comment on anything specific.

It's so cool watching your progress.

Go brother!

You are very talented I am sure you could do it. The thing is you can just put a rough draft of the song on the site, you can also just put the lyrics if you choose. My goal was to write the lyrics on the odd days and then put to BIAB the next. It has just worked out to where I was able to complete them in a day. That way I get a little cushion if needed. I think that it helped that I signed up about a week before, so I thought about the process I was going to use beforehand. So by the time the day came I was not wasting it trying to figure out what method I would use. I had my pad and pen and most importantly BIAB. You ought to give it a try next year!

I have done it! 14 songs in 22 days. Here is # 14.

Was It Easy

While you are there check out all 14. A couple I have to re-sing, due to some pitch problems. My voice went south on me for a few days I hope you will enjoy them though.
