How about we run this new hybrid thing from the week of March 1st (first track due Friday March 6th) through Friday, April 3rd. That's just 5 weeks, instead of 8. It gives everyone some time to prep and shortens the commitment time.
The question no one asked, but might want to hear the answer:
Q: Why do I love SAW?
A: I no longer have the ability to be in a band, write songs with others, record, play shows etc. But, SAW creates the framework that compels me to write new songs, record/mix them and play them for others to hear.
Bonus answer: It also gives me access to cool new tunes from guys like T Gobbs, Scole, Mr S, Nick, Markus, 7DT, Bohmer, astrocreep, Rocka, KarlHV, TheKindred, Connor, Rev Drucifer, BlankPlank, Cobra Commander, Lozek, 7deadlysins and Chris's random pickup he's trying to pawn off on some unsuspecting fool.
Bonus answer #2: It's helped me grow as a player, songwriter, sound engineer and tone-junky. Not to mention the umpteen pup swaps I've done on the fly while getting ready to create another entry. Took me about an hour to swap a pup when this all started, I swapped a pair in under 20 minutes last Friday.
Bonus answer #3: It puts hair on your chest. (or so I hear, I already had a lot, but it's migrating to my shoulders, ears and nose... pretty sure that's due to SAW... or old age... no, definitely SAW.)
