hi! i started FAWM.

thanks for being a part of this musical journey!

i've been gradually manifesting a preference for 4-stringed instruments since starting bass lessons last summer. so i might ban myself from the guitar and see if i can do a whole FAWM with just my ukuleles, bass, and tenor guitar+banjo. well, those plus keyboards, drum machines, and percussion. πŸ˜„

science nerd + pop music junkie who grew up in the bluegrass, went to school in the tundra, and now i live in steeltown. i've been in bands in all of those places. he/him/yinz/y'all. FAWM is my main gig at the moment so please support what we do! 😍 https://write.fawm.org/donate

Thanks for the feedback! The MicroFreak's seriously a good instrument for the money, Arturia has added a lot of features through firmware updates.

That was Rob's first comment too - yet another I almost bagged it, haha

Yeah, I did the solo on his baritone

I might redo the 2”x4” it in order to fulfill you expectations. ;)

Side note: I love the font style for today. It's like what many of us FAWMer do during Feb....just jot down ideas and lyrics on paper....it has an organic feel...just saying.
Well done on the site BTW!

Hey @burr πŸ˜ƒ
What an awesome concept FAWM is!! Thanks for building this great platform! This is my first go at the challenge and already I'm feeling like I'm overcoming my habit of procrastinating myself into a funk (*but not the funky sort of funk!)...so thankyou!

I really like what was done with the skirmish it makes it so much easier to find everything, this will be incredibly helpful during super skirmishes.

Thanks for starting and maintaining FAWM. It is a really great experience. Long may it last. 😁

whoa whoa whoa, tenor guitar and banjo? am I no longer the only one? I'm up to, erm, 1 2 3 three tenor guitars, my banjo, and a 4-string octave mando I call a G-tenor (asymmetric teardrop shape, lovely)--and of course, the OG my Fender Precision.

Huge HUGS and thanks for all you do BURR!

Hey Burr, don't know how to reach you, but the fawm-page is appearing to run awfully slow. Often the avatars don't load. Is there something you can do? Or is it just me? Anyway, thanks for this awfully slow loading page anyhow. =)
[avatar]
Thanks for all you do, Burr!
[avatar]
Thanks for the welcoming, this is my first year. Excited to see what FAWM is all about!
[avatar]
Hi Burr - FAWM is the best ❀️ I'm happy to be back for another year and another round of 4-track cassettes! Thanks for keeping this thing going!
[avatar]
thanks for the welcome. hope you have a gd fawm
[avatar]
Thanks! I'm really looking forward to trying a bunch of new stuff - should give me a change to play with some of the wackier pedals I've built. And thank you for FAWM - I'm already loving it.
[avatar]
Thank you for another year of FAWM Burr!
[avatar]
Thank you for starting it. Made February my favorite month!
[avatar]
Thank you for the friendly welcome!
I really enjoyed the FAWM-4-track-challenge-videos that brought me here.
Thank you for your involvement.
Have a great fawm 2024!

Thanks for reaching out. Really excited to be a part of this group. Everyone seems so lovely thus far.

Burr, thanks so much for all you do to foster this community! It was great hanging with you at FAWMstock West! Happy FAWMing!
[avatar]
Burr, I can't recall if I said it last year but I just wanted to say thank you for making this space. It really is a haven on the Internet, and its positive effects carry through into Spring for me every year.

Fair warning that I may send you an email inquiring about some music-tech-adjacent things in the near future, for when you get a bit of free time (LOL).

Thanks for everything you do, Burr! Appreciate all your efforts to keep it going and make it so special. FAWM is amazing! πŸ™ŒπŸ»βœ¨

If you can do a megaman on 4 4-stringed instruments I will be very impressed :-)
[avatar]
WE LOVE YOU, BURR!!!
[avatar]
Thanks again for everything Burr, and I hope you get to write some songs too!

Happy 21st FAWM! Thank you so much for keeping it all going still. Means a lot.
Wishing you the best FAWM edition ever. May FAWM24 be an epic adventure. Have a blast and FAWM on!
