I am doing FAWM again this year and I am going to use this one thread to post the songs I do (if they are at least OK!!). I am doing some videos this year using powerdirector 14 that I bought in 2015 for fawm 2016 -- but I never used. The videos will be one take and no editing, because I don't have time during FAWM. maybe in March!

some things are habits
some are passing fancies
others are bumps in the road
some are a long way through a valley

but I'm addicted to you
you make old things new
you shine a light
where there was only night

Note: a skirmish is where you are given a title/theme and you write/record a song in an hour (Of course, it took an extra hour to do all the video processing -- I'm a newbie.

Nice Video Kevin. Liked the window within a window that showed you picking. Nice singing and picking.

Question...What is the picture about that is seen off of the left side of your face on the wall in the background? smile

Calvin: Thanks for stopping by and giving it a view!!

Martin: Thanks for the watch. Funny you should mention that picture. My wife and daughter put up some album covers on the wall. It's a madonna album. Before I did my 2nd video I rearranged them so madonna wasn't visible. Nothing against her, just don't want that pic in my video. Probably keep re-arranging so there is a different one every time!

FAWM #2: Another 1 hour skirmish. Took 40 minutes to write and record (light on lyrics!) and then an hour+ to do all the video shenanigans. seem to have turned off one video too soon, looks weird. Need to work on location, but that'll be for next time.

I at least remembered to change outfits for one track!

Another skirmish with the title given "Choose Love".
[size:14pt]FAWM #2 Choose Love[/size] (skirmish)
(c) Emmrich 2017


Choose Love
it's great
Choose Love
it's not too late
Choose Love
you know you should
Choose Love
it's always good

In a dark world of dread
you wonder "is honesty dead"
under assault from all sides
truth has been replaced by lies

Choose Love ...

Kevin: guitar, ukulele, vocals

Hi Kevin:

Nice "skirmish" given the time constraints. The added burden of video has to be a major distraction. I always attempt to listen to the music without having to watch anything... but this option was not available.

Reminded me a bit of Ricky Skaggs... but I'll bet you've been told that before, LOL!

Here's hoping FAWM is kind to you this year.

Regards, ----Dave

Dave: Thansk for watching and listening. It should be just as easy to take video as it is to just record -- but it isn't. There is an added level of distraction that is tough to get by.

Unfortunately I have to go down to florida for ~10 days to help settle all of my father's affairs. He passed away in late January and now it is time to deal with lawyers and accountants, clearing out his place and stuff like that. Of course, he was super organized and will make it easy for me and my brother. But there will be a good memorial service which should be uplifting. He had a great 30 year career at Lynbrook NY High School and then 25+ years of a great retirement. I can only hope that I can do so well.

I won't have any instruments with me. Maybe I will write some words here and there and get to do some listening and commenting.

But I will leave you with my "wall" song/video. It was another skirmish, so I had to leave my boo-boos in there!

Super Wall
(c) emmrich 2017

It値l be sensational
it値l be marvelous
it値l be great
just you wait

I can稚 stand the suspense
it値l be immense
I知 talking a super beautiful wall

Gonna wind with the rio grande
run through desert sand
go up and down rocky hills
thought of it gives me chills

some animals might be cut off
forget Reagan and Gorbachev
it値l run from the pacific ocean
to the gulf stream waters

old woody will give an amen
cause this land will be our land again

Kevin: guitars, vocal

I've been enjoying these short and sweet songs. I hope you take the time to go back to them, when time allows, and flesh them out.

Choose Love is a timely topic. "Truth has been replaced by lies" made me laugh because now we have "alternative truths" to wade through as well as flat out lies.

The wall made me laugh too. I've been shaking my head a lot lately. What a world! smile

A non-video tune! Another one hour skirmish.

Eccentric
(c) Emmrich 2017

You're so eccentric
not really eclectic
you only know what you know

you have wild hair
don't have a care
not worried 'bout the show

but when i'm down and out
you come around

you're a little flaky
you wanna take me
on a ride somewhere

but then you're gone
to the beyond
you forgot i was there

but when i'm down and out
you come around

Kevin: guitars, vocal
house: air handler unit
