Default RezZ's Songwriting Journal

I have been writing for a long time, and well in my opinion non literal songs are much better.

What i mean by this is when everyone posts there lyrics here, yes they make sense, and are understandable..but they lack thought and creativity from the writing and listening aspect. A good song does not outwright tell you what it is talking about, it lets you figure it our yourself hrough metaphores or anything else that would infer a real meaning.

Maybe its just me, but i feel thats much better than just saying exactly what you mean. No song is about one thing, its supposed to be what the listener makes it.

i agree totally! music should be made so that everytime to you listen to the lyrics, a new meaning could be used. Like yes, theres always a literal meaning. But the best albums are the ones where you have to sit there and think about everything it could mean and since everyone could have a different interpretation, the song becomes that much more versatile and artistic.

I agree music is much better when you can sit, listen, and figure out what point they are trying to get across

Default A song idea, need lyrics and little advice.

I have uploaded the sample I made that my band will try to turn into a song tomorrow since we bought some studio time.

Since I have no room for drum set here I made similar drum beat using keyboard so bear with it. It is a 50 sec sample of the main rhythm and solo sections. (Keep in mind I wont be doing much of the soloing the actual guitarist will)

Just tell me what you think and what I can improve on. The timing isnt perfect since its a ruff copy, but other than that its what I am showing them for an idea. I need some lyrics also, which I am having some trouble coming up with for this mood. So any ideas? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I definitely hear a lot of potential there, with a little tightening up I think it could be a really great song. As far as picking the right lyrics for the mood I don't know but what the song made me think of is swanky new clothes and a friday night out on the town. Maybe that helps.

Thanks for the reply. It will be tighter when its actually recorded and played by our actual guitarist.

Lol funny impression to get. I was somewhat trying to imitate a progressive acid trip in which your thinking about your self. Sounds ****ing stupid but hey, what the hell.

Default Attempt at my first folk song.

[Fingerstyle 1 Intro]

G c D7 G
Johnny had a station, riddled with rocks.

G C Em
He just wants the tangible truth.

G C D7 G
Johnny had a station, occluded by night.

G C Em
He just wants the counterfeit wiped.


[Bridge 1]


He hit the city and the damage was done.

They bit his freedom, kept it for good.

Now Johnny sits there askin' why they never understood...


[Bridge 1]

[Fingerstyle 2 Outro]




Just a simple relaxing folk song with a neat little chord progression and arpeggio intro/outro. The middle verse (and really the only verse) still needs a guitar/piano part. Will hopefully have the song recorded soon and posted with everything included.
