A title/prompt is given, and you have an hour (or so) to write, record, and post up a song based on it.

WHAT: We will have a one hour skirmish to write to a prompt.

WHEN: Sunday September 9 3PM EST, 12PM PST, 8PM GMT

THEME/TITLE: "Autumn Breeze"

Looking forward to your skirmish title Corinne.

Me too!

As long as the power stays on. Heavy storm rollin' in.

Theme/Title: "Autumn Breeze"

Okay this is mine.

I saw the prompt at 3:30, wrote some words, and I'll record later. And I think I'll be able to record outside - maybe even feel a bit of what passes for an autumn breeze in Florida.

With a wind-related prompt it seemed an opportune time to return to the Cyclone Cycle, which some of you may remember from last year.

Just finished. First time skirmish on 50/90

I did one too.

Here are some lyrics - was not able to start until 30 min ago so a quick write

Power on! Breeze not so bad.

I composed it during an hour but spent some time finding a picture and then had second thoughts on the instrumentation so changed it.
Here is my instrumental. Thank you so much Corinne for the inspiring title and to everyone who is listening and commenting.

Just woke up and did this quickly. Slightly tongue in cheek.

You know what, I realize for the first time that I may be doing things incorrectly - are the skirmishes to be completed within an hour of them being posted? Or can we do them at any point that day, but only take an hour to complete the song?

Good job everyone. Really high standard with this skirmish. Impressive.

Late to the party but here's my play:

@splittybooms Ideally within the hour of them being posted but we're laid back at 5090. FAWM's a little more hard-and-fast with the skirmish times.

Here's mine:

Wrote the words in just a few minutes after I saw the prompt, worked up some blues riffs in D on the guitar, but couldn't record until today.

@splittybooms, as @metalfoot said, you can do them any time. But, you will get more engagement/comments if you do it at the same time as the others since it is when everyone is participating and commenting on the other songs. I've noticed that any skirmish song I complete in the allotted hour will usually get 90-100% comments from others who participate whereas, if I do it later, it may not get any comments from other participants because they have moved on by then. Just a thought if you love getting comments!

But, with that said, I'd recommend you still do any skirmish you like and then be sure to go comment on all of the other songs from that skirmish. Then you'll likely get a few comments as folks are very cool here about reciprocating!

Thanks you two. I've been doing it wrong this whole time, going back to fawm.
Never even paid any attention to it.
I'll try this weekend to do this correctly.
Kudos to all who still comment on this tardy-pants' stuff lol

I updated my skirmish song Imma Wanna. Thanks for listening
