How Do YOU Write Your Music?
« on: March 02, 2008, 07:44:57 pm »
Since there are so many ways, I will not enter poll options and such. Just tell me.
Personally, I cannot write any music unless I have an extreme emotion, where I can just play as I go along (Guitar, piano) and I can't remember it.
But I can actually create stuff when I see lyrics that someone made. When I'm rather detatched to the lyrics in other cases but I like them, I can write some pretty cool stuff, so I'm not really good to writing to my own lyrics.
That's what she said.

When I am inspired by something,  i just think of how i want it to sound and then write it down since i cant play piano its tougher for me. But i once wrote a song early in the morning and was inspired by the fake masks that people put on when they walk outside and how different people will act when its just you and that person, this was inspired by my sister and how fake she acts around people.

i also wrote one about vanessa.

I dont know if im a good songwriter because i have never shown my lyrics to anyone.

me too. I'm always afraid they'll be like "WOW you suck!"

When I write it just kinda hits me and i need a paper and pen before it goes away. I write lyrics first and then create the music from the way i feel best expresss the words.

OMB its like the same for me! I just type the lyrics into my phone as a note, and later write it into my secret notebook!

I just dread someone telling me i suck!

Aww... Everyone has different writing styles, I've not seen any lyrics that suck so far on this website or anywhere else.
Different lyrics appeal to different people, and sadly...the ones I write aren't the kind I like to listen to.
Weird, eh?

Well...I can usualy write a song whenever I feel like it :lol:
But my good songs....the unique ones that everyone loves... ( :razz:  )
I usually write those songs when Im having a sad day...im depressed most of the time...so i write many nice songs :razz: :lol:

I started at first by writing down words that rhyme....
example: me, see, sea, be ....etc. (it helps to listen to songs and write down the endings of every sentence or musical phrase :D )
My twin sister listens to songs and writes down the sound of the ending of every musical phrase
example: Y is a certain sound...X is another sound
So, it might be like : ------- Y        ------- Y
                              ------- X  or   -------- Y
                              ------- Y        -------- X
                              ------- X       -------- X

etc....


I cant make up tunes for my songs...its like this blockage in my brain! :razz:

I work at this knock-off sunglass kiosk at the mall. It gets pretty boring. So I sing songs in my head. Sometimes I come up with something cool, sometimes it's just blah. I used to write the piano part before I ever wrote the lyrics... but lately I have switched that around!

I don't write songs with lyrics, but i can compose music. My main instrument is flute, so i've composed a few pieces of that. I pick a key that i wana play in, depending on my mood, close my eyes, and the music just comes naturally.
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.

I can do that on piano, but I wish I was as good on guitar as I was on piano, because my cousin and me are writing songs together.
She writes lyrics, I write music.
That's what she said.
