Default Re: Songwriting tips

Thanks for that great post dude, I tend to find myself in the same place of having to listen back after some time in order to hear things as a listener rather than a player. Patience is probably a big one for me as well, I can come up with so many parts in one sitting but usually get impatient with one song idea so I move on to another. Pretty much all of the stuff I have written so far has been from trial and error which can be very time consuming, I wish I had a 'formula' to get a rough song complete and then let it evolve over time. I know there are things like AABA etc but I feel like I need It doesn't help that I have very high standards either :P

Or I could just write one-riff songs, lol.
