Have you skirmished before? If so, come do it again! If not, please come try it!

WHAT: A 2 hours (if you need more time take it, if you need to join late, please do!) song skirmish. This is how it works:

1) At the start, I will post a title/prompt/theme/concept/ for your inspiration in this thread.

2) All participants write and/or record, and post a song within an hour. Lyrics-only posts and instrumentals are absolutely fine. And if you take longer than an hour, PLEASE post anyway.

3) To help others find your song, tag it using the above tags, and also post a link to it in this thread down below.

4) If you participate, please listen to (or read) and comment on the songs of all the other skirmish participants and share the FAWM love.

Most Important: HAVE FUN!

Two hours!!!!! Terrific, it will seem like such a long time but I bet I end up scrabbling to finish sh in the last few seconds the same as usual Smile

Cool, I'll have to join late again, but looking forward to it.

also will be joining an hour in

Thank you! Love the idea of 2 hours.

I need 4 more to hit my goal of 30. I'm in.

Two hours? but I got a head start since awake on a Sunday and already tuned guitars and found a pen and some paper? That saved me a good 15-20 minutes, what am I going to do with the other hour and half? actually work on something??? I don't like this one bit!!!!!!!! hahahahah Should be fun, that or I won't have anything, we'll see Biggrin

I'd like to try for a double!

There's an idea Smile


I’ll be back to comment - and it is a 2 hour skirmish so if anyone wants to put music to this there is time!

Woke early did this quick might try for some more sleep. http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/45691 demo up now as well!!

Interesting, this one was. http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/45694

Just had the chance to see the prompt so starting shortly.

Yay! Thanks Corinne! I love the extra hour as it gave me time to do something a wee bit more polished than my usual skirmishing!


I almost didn't post this, but... well... perhaps it will serve as a cautionary note to giving people two hours to do a skirmish

ugh, barely under the time.........but I did have to start a new soundcloud account, already filled one up this 50/90 Smile

I'll listen later, but will go read any lyrics now Biggrin

In on time - well a few minutes late, not bad for me. A short break and I'll listen / read everyone elses

I did it! I finished.
But don't feel obliged to comment as I probably don't have the time to listen to stuff. Arg! Sorry.

Quick half-hour write, ironically (given the subject matter) after the kid's bedtime...


Here’s my 3.25 hr skirmish effort!
