Hi everyone!

It's my first post so I just thought I'd get things kicked off with a nice poll to see what you guys like/want to know about writing songs. I love making songs myself..though I'm still getting better! I put how to put together a song in the poll. I can never seem to put everything together in a way that makes sense :S Hope to share some great conversations with you guys in the future!

Hi jbpiedmont,
Welcome to the Muse.
I would have voted if there was a choice for how to connect with others by learning to connect with myself. :blink:
What interests me most about songwriting is that is allows me to create and communicate with others through music.
It also is much cheaper than seeing a Shrink. :wacko: ;)
Have fun here. :)

DeeDee,

I found the cocks. They're hiding in the bushes with a case of beer. Once they're drunk, us hens will look good to 'em.

As an old boiler myself, what interests me about songwriting is that I can be anyone I want to be - through songs.
I'd happily tick off every box.

I have a lot of block with lyrics.

I've been talking since I was barely out of infancy, and my lexicon is out there. Too much info.

Too many choices; have had to work to be simple, and not to over-describe or explain.

I keep a songwriting notebook, and write every stupid idea down, especially lyrics.

I remain an awkward lyricist, by my own estimation. Conversely, I can strum, and hum over, chords, all day long.

The struggle continues . . .
