SKIRMISH: SATURDAY 15th JULY 3pm EST, Noon PST, 8pm BST

HOST: Amanda West

THEME/PROMPT: Waiting In Line

TAGS: #skirmish #skirmishJ15a #waitinginline

WHAT: We'll have a 1 hour song skirmish and it will go something like this:

1) At the start of the event, I'll announce a theme for your inspiration.

2) All participants write, record and post a song within an hour. (Lyrics-only posts are also absolutely fine. And if you take longer than an hour, PLEASE post anyway. There are no 50/90 police!)

3) Participants share links to their songs. Fun and embarrassment ensue. But most importantly, everyone has one more song!

Be sure and tag your song and also post a link to it in this thread.

If you participate, please listen to (or read) and comment on the songs of the other skirmish participants. (That's part of the fun!)

Good luck and enjoy!

P.S. If you can't start at the announced time, you can still participate. Just post your song written within the hour after you start.

Love, peace and sláinte
Amanda

I'm hoping to do this one, and even stick to the time limit!

I'll miss the next few skirmishes while I'm traveling, but look forward to jumping back in later in the month.

I haven't been able to do a skirmish yet this 50/90, but I might be able to make this one; I'm hoping I can.

When is this advised, down here in Aus at the moment it is 5.48 PM??????

I'm in! Woo hoo!!!!!!!!

When we say "3pm EST" I'm assuming we mean "3PM EDT"??

Waiting tick tock

Or not.

Maybe someone else should throw out a theme, if Amanda's been held up...

OK, I think the moment's passed. I'm going to stop refreshing this thread and go back to work on a non-Skirmish song. I look forward to the next skirmish!

Just checking back in to see if a prompt was here...nope...back to cleaning the house! Smile

Yup - back to the studio for me.

Last minute title/prompt suggestion: Waiting In Line

I'm in @marvsmooth

OK, I'm in too, although I'm giving myself an hour from the time of announcement.

I have to apologise to everyone Sad I fell asleep on the sofa Sad
Thank you very much @marvsmooth for stepping in and giving a great prompt Smile

Here's mine: http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/21816

It amazes me how a skirmish song can come out as good (and, indeed, better) than a song I agonize over. There's an energy here I quite like.

Apparently, I have to pay attention to the people in my house now. Back later, probably manana, to listen to the awesomeness that I know awaits!

Thank you for the prompt.

i did something too... went a bit over time but mostly through faffing so i'm still counting it as skirmish.. http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/21830 thanks Marv

I'm late to the party...and I still only have lyrics and some chords, no demo yet. http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/21835

And apparently I am confused and messed up or so late to the party I missed something - sigh - oh well, I wrote from the prompt "advice"

It's been hard to get started this year so I am leaving it as is. LOL

Submitted for your approval..."Waiting In Line"
