About
I'm new to the songwriting game but I used to write poetry (which seems to be a negative thing for lyrics other than producing imagery). It started by wanting to write a song for my wife and the music came rather quickly but the lyrics were tougher, especially making them work with the instrumentation. I quickly wrote ideas (chord progressions and instrumentation) for about 15 songs but I'm on here to complete any of them that I can! I have a good dozen or so with potential to make nice full length songs, one I completed as instrumental but I'm open to adding lyrics, and another I think may be more of a jingle/intro kind of 'bubblegum pop' as I've termed it. I've requested input on theory from a couple friends with music degrees on one song but I can't bug them about every song! Hopefully on here I can get some help and put some music to other songs in return!
