Do you have difficulty expressing yourself? we can and will express how we feel but not in the conventional way all the time. This is an interesting topic that begs discussion....So then, why not talk a little about what moves a writer to putting his/her feelings on paper, the benefits of sharing personal feelings with others, and so on.

Most people can sense sincerity in a writers content. In fact, if you write about your personal lifes experiences, It seems like your writing would qualify as a "good read" to all. However, one thing to remember is you are writing about your life and not your readers, so you would have to incorporate the ones who have taken their personal time to read your literature or lyric's. They need to be moved to continue reading or listening.

Lyric's suck but the music rock's! We have all heard a song that moved us musically but left us without a clue as far as lyric's go. Okay, every song will not be nominated for a grammy but the question is, how close can you come to it? You may or may not agree with me but anyone that beats me in anything by one point, shows that they were just a little better for the time. No problem! But when it comes to lyric's, that is such a personal expression that you will never get everyone to buy in to it. Obviously, there are million record artists that deal with that. Just do your best.

Music writing. How important is it to follow the natural structure of a song? Well here is an example of a young man and his father: "Thanks dad, I'll give it back next week. Dad can we talk? I need it to make a payment on my car. See you next week, bye! Can I borrow $300.00? If someone approached me in this manner, I would think something was seriously wrong with them. The point is....You have to have an introduction, a verse, change, maybe a bridge and a conclusion.

Provide Sheet music. It may be best to first provide sheet music for the piano,.....Some writers end up using piano as the benchmark as opposed to writing sheet music for guitar. The guitarist, in some cases will coordinate efforts with piano to decide which chord structures works for both. The bass player will always be able to find the bottom notes, even if he does not read music. Both guitar and piano are careful to acknowledge the bass note and allow the bass player to play it.

The writers composition is like a road map......The song takes you where the writer wants you, as a listener to go. We should alway's show a measure of respect to such a writer who is able to bring a smile to our faces, slow us down a little and give us encouragement to go on. So maybe you want to give it a try......Go ahead!,....You may find a real writer within yourself.
