Re: how to: Lyrics? Songwriting?

thanks for all of the responses here.


at this point I'm making some progress.

i've not tracked anything yet but i'm starting to get some decent lyrics together.

I have been singing some melodies, trying to work out the phrasing of things... I think I'll need to look to guitar to come up with the melodies, as I'm a pretty boring vocalist.

But I use 5,7,5,7 or 7,5,7,5 (and other measures) in verse/chorus/middle8/etc aswell. That way, if you have one verse that works, you have a form to write the rest of the verses by.
