FAWM (February Album Writing Month)
Can’t even remember how I stumbled into finding F.A.W.M. (February Album Writing Month). I had previously heard of National Novel Writing Month, but nothing in regards to music. The idea with FAWM is to create an album in the month of February, 14 1/2 songs. Check the the site for more of the guidelines — FAWM.org
For me, FAWM sounded appealing because I have a bad habit of starting projects with good momentum, then very quickly becoming distracted by the sound of another new project. This leads to lots of half-structures and skeleton beats with no meat. This sounded like a perfect opportunity to for me to exercise myself and at the same time force myself to find a happy medium with tracks much more quickly. I am highly doubting any of these will end up on a best seller list or anything but really enjoying the exercise so far.

Pretty sure you have to sign up in order to comment, but if you enjoy something or have any criticisms for any of the tracks I have up there, please take a minute to sign up and say so.
As a final note, I highly recommend this to any musicians who enjoy a challenge or perhaps are just finding themselves musically stuck. Enjoy!
