Re: Song writing?
I write songs.
It's really not all that tough, if you have a flare for writing like I happen to have. A tip is to write about something you understand or at least think a lot about, or that has happened to you, or you've experienced. That's when writing is at its best. Just yesterday I wrote a nice song after I stared at the stars on a starry night (oddly enough the song is called Starry Night).
Another tip is to not make all your rhymes too obvious. A rhyme like "make" and "fate" can sound better than one like "make" and "cake", if you get my point.
My favorite bands: Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Red Hot Chili Peppers
