Default Re: Songwriting tips

Well everyone has their own process but I tend to start with one part that is exceptionally good (for my ideas) whether its guitar, drums, whatever, then you either want to figure out everything for that section or figure out how that main part will change into a similar but different part. Then Ill go back and do the other option of my two. At this point I have the bulk of a song but its far from good. The real trick is then going back and figuring out a nice bridge or solo that really makes the song and finally I work out the exact structure and throw on any intros or endings. But then sometimes the muse just hits you and songs pop out without my following these procedures.
