This is my 12th FAWM! Seems crazy to think about... I didn't do much songwriting until 2006, when I first heard about FAWM. I've gotten all 14 songs done most years (every time except once, I think). Usually I'm fairly bullheaded - if I set my mind to something I have to finish - but I'm trying to let go and be happier and more chill. Realistically, I'm not expecting to finish this year, but I would like some practice flexing my creative muscle.
I'm also quite lucky to have the local support of the Toronto FAWMily, who are always encouraging and have helped me keep up with music during the 11 months of "off-season" we have here.
I'm an optometrist from the suburbs of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I've been playing guitar for well over half my life, and I've expanded into noodling around with all sorts of other instruments since.
I'm lucky to have a partner who doesn't mind that our house has a music room now (huzzah!)

Hey there, You're up for the Auntie-Syn...have fun!
Hello, Friend! Long time since we've chatted, but I'm so thankful you swung by my page! If you'd like to collab on my proposed French song, I'd be glad for it. Helene has also offered to do an arrangement, but i can't turn down the opportunity at multiple versions if you want to take a crack at it. It's the lyrics-only called Photograph of Shadows.
Thanks for the review!
Hi Adam, Thanks for your kind words on my haiku lyrics 😀 I really appreciate it, as I've been struggling a bit with whether I can still do this. It's the brilliant feeling of community and support on here that makes me want to keep trying.
Thanks so much for your generous comment! 😀
Thank you very much for the comment on "Petrol"!
I can't seem to find the demo. Is it me? Can you point me?
Thanks you for your kind feedback on "crevasse" . Looking forward to hearing you 🙏
I sent the whistle song to your email, let me know if you got it and there's no pressure. I already have a version with a guitar solo that I'll put up if you have trouble getting to it. 😀 Thanks!!
Yes! Hit me 😀
Thanks for the kind words, good sir!
Re: the non-tinny high capo, I think the key is that I was using the semi-hollow body. The same tune sounds lousy on my Telecaster, but awesome on the Ibanez Artcore.
Looking forward to catching up on more of your stuff soon!
Good sir, LMK if a live-person collab can be in the cards this month. I can visit you, or give you a tour of the new toys here in the padded room.
Thanks for checking out "Ex-Centric"! I greatly appreciate it 😁
Thanks for listening and commenting! I have no idea what "normal" is! lol
Oh Adam. You of all people should not be surprised at that subject matter coming out of my mouth. * laughs * Wait, that sounded so bad. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
Oooo, catchy is good. Thanks for listening, Adam!
Hey you! Thanks for commenting on my first fawmstock baby this year! 😀 how the heck are you?
ADAM!!! Of course I'm ready, are you ready? I am so ready! Are we keeping with tradition this year? Somehow? 😁
Hi Adam! Can't wait to hear what you've got for us this year 😀
Hi Adam! Happy FAWMing.
