-- I've notice the possibility of collaborations and specifically for lyricist has increased.
Some may be saying, yeah... finally! I wonder if it may be facilitated further, and how to do so. This is purely analogous observation on my part, and for "fun".
Since they have seemed to increase, there's been more to observe concerning them. I have actually engaged them, "lyricists", --something I never thought I might do. Every session of FAWM5090 is new, -- so I do reconsider all as if "new", first time (one of the great elements of success of an engagement that ends and fully restarts, new, FAWM5090).
Now, with more observed, I had things come to mind that I had not considered previously. FAWM5090 for me is the best place to discuss this, "flesh it out", debate, discuss, cite good/bad/successful/unsuccessful -- process, method, assumptions, other. The ones that keep coming back to FAWM5090 do seem to remember or even fold them into new FAQ's they supply if needed, e.g. youtube help videos, etc.
-- I compiled a list of things I've observed. You? However, mine are not here, -- you first.
Therefore, it makes me wonder what others may have compiled as observations however may not have yet suggested/commented, or if they did, felt they were properly understood, important/not important, assumptions that should not have been made, other.
-- I've noticed three distinct elements of collaboration, at least, to consider, -- lyricists, musicians, "other contributors" such as vocalist/singer (possibly the largest affect/effect -ing element of "other")
-- "Me", as performing songwriter, -- being all three to varying degree will have a very different citing of things than lyricist, musician, performer only. This is what this thread could do the most to reveal, -- mindset to address for MORE collaborations; avoid presumptions and non-communication that may derail projects
That's the end of my preface on this and "all" that this is about. However, here's a caveat, assumption or two it is not about.
=== === === === === ===
One caveat for this thread if it does get engaged (this thread), and it may not, some may not "get" how much there is here, I could be wrong. Nonetheless... ... :
Other, not to necessarily consider "here" in this thread, consider then starting a separate one if extensive:
-- Most copyright law elements that I've observed are "always" handled by *pre-agreement* in writing prior to proceeding, and/or/with -- contacting the controlling authority, e.g. copyright.gov (USA CR's), ---- done! It's that simple, no discussion is necessary.
I do not think this is a copyright thread, -- that would be separate. Again, that is easily concluded as issue as just stated, --in process. Moreover, CR has also been "hashed out", possibly over the top in prior issues threads, prior FAWM5090's, and across platforms. Again, great to do if needed, (new folks arrive daily, --so do address it), -- but has it's own singular context (and countries, USA, UK, EU, Australia... etc.). These elements, simple above, 1-Lyricist, 2-Musician, 3-Separate Performer/Vocalist, I do not observe are thought about as thuroughly, -- overlooked as assumptive and should not be. We shall see
I have my "list" of things, however, I am more interested in others. If interested and asked I'd be glad to list mine. However, in this, I wonder if I am of a similar mind and this is a self-check in how I see things here. I hope I am on the same page, -- but how would I know if not directly engage it, -- this thread.
=== === === === === ===
I'll conclude this thread preface with, -- I find the last third here, last weeks of 5090 (possibly opposite to others), -- while some say "few" in numbers remain, are the more serious, hard-core, *passionate folks and IS the time, now, to have a discussion like this since all the other is done. All it takes is for 2, 3, 4 folks who "love" this stuff to engage for all the readers/lurkers who may read it and into January of next year if not have another "pre-discussion" for FAWM5090.
