I usually write full- and short-length fiction, but have always had an ear for #music, interest in #lyrics, and a desire to pen words for #songs.

Most recently, a tweet regarding #singer_songwriter @unknownbecky (@thisisbeckyw on Twitter) crossed my Twitter. And the rest, as they say, is history!

From there, I joined #Twitch to become a part of Becky's #TheRoomOfInfinity #livestreaming #songwriting session(s). I had never heard of anything like it before and found it an intriguing idea. She holds her #livestreams twice a week now (Wed: 3 p.m. ET, 2pm CT, 8pm UK; Sun: 9pm ET, 8pm CT, 6 pm PT) during which times she writes a #song in an hour from viewer suggestions. The first time song interacting with her and other viewers I was hooked.

And so now--although starting 2022's 50/90 late--I'm here! Ready and so looking forward to writing some lyrics!

P.S. Can you please leave your e-mail adress or write a mail? Having your contact data would be awesome when things are decided... or change. This website closes end of September, just sayin'.

Hey Chris,

thanks for your lyric. Cool idea, reminds me fo the baiting for talents in the commercial music scene. But this dude is super convinced of his skills! I'm sorry that I cannot say anything about the practicability, because I cannot rap and I only wrote two lyrics in this style.

I'll forward this one to @nahlej381 per mail, so we both have a discussion. We received another draft per mail yesterday night. I'll remove the lyrics needed tag and come back to you when we decided (a) if there can be multiple versions of a song and (b) which lyrics to take. In any case your work won't be in vain!

In general it's easier to handle multiple requests, when you show interest in a comment before starting something. Usually people take the first or wait for some days and the one with the most appropiate style for that song. Last year, I split the guitar tracks to rhythm and lead so both were happy... and some do multiple versions of a song. I'll keep you posted!

Hey Chris - I am getting the melody and chords together for you wonderful lyrics! If you would like to hear a rough copy let me know - I usually send that to the folks I collab with, and then apply any feedback. You can reach me through email on my profile page. Thanks. Thank you also for the wonderful feedback on my songs. It is such a gift to get feedback from a writer - you express yourself so well, and you see things in my songs that I either did not see or did unintentionally. It is just such a treat and I am very grateful!

Still Quiet Moment is posted. Thank you for such lovely lyric.

Thanks for your comment - It rhymes!

Thank you for the ever so lovely comments on my banjo song Clouds. The banjo has been a challenge for me to play and sing along at the same time, you know one take. But I am having some progress. I am quite happy to experiment with any form of music , and until recently my instrument playing ability has held me back, But I am learning me some GarageBand. I will enjoy working on Still Quiet Moment. Would you like a preview before I post? If not just add me as a collaboration and I will get something maybe tomorrow. I do have a music lesson in the morning, so won't be until evening time.

Hey Chris,
I'm glad you enjoyed my first time rap beat!

Thanks for your offer, but we already threw the beat together with "Darker" from @codeenergy plus hookline from @spazsquatch. You can listen to a update of my collab here:

I'm sorry but I don't have the capacity to start or join more collabs this year. I'm finishing stuff I promissed and trying to get people for the drafts I uploaded.

Hey Chris - well as they say there is not much going on in February so it is a good month to dedicate to music! I will be getting to Down By The Riverbed soon. Lots going on here - capped off by a power outage from storms last night. I am looking forward to working on it.

Thank you also Chris for your lovely feedback on my songs - it is very much appreciated!!

Thanks for checking out some of my songs. You're awesome!

Hey Chris, thank you for the wonderful comments on my 'Death' and 'Over the Top' tracks. I really appreciate everyone who takes a moment to leave a message!

[avatar]

Chris, thank you SO MUCH for your comment on my song "Joy". When I finished recording that song I thought to myself "this is the kind of music that I want to make". I was already happy with it, and reading your comment really made my 50/90! I really appreciate it!

Chris, thanks pard, for your lengthy review of "Campfire Melodies".

[avatar]

Glad to see that you got the second song posted. You may have already discovered that this year is the start of a new website for this community and is kind of a work in progress technically. There are still some bugs and gremlins in the new coding being fixed on the fly, and many features yet to be added. I see that you already posted on the forums, so hoping for an answer there. Oh BTW, @headfirstonly who posted below also has a fun Twitch stream!

Welcome, Chris! Have fun!

Hi Chris and glad that you made your way over from the @unknownbecky stream. Lots of levels of participation in this group, plus a lot of lyricists, and the FAQ https://fiftyninety.fawm.org/help-faq is a good starting place. Also tagging #needs_music or posting in one of the collaboration threads on the forums will increase chances of getting a music collaborator. Looking forward to more of your writing and to see how some of it gets put to music!
