Notation for lyrics (blues scale)
I was wondering what the best way to record the notes and things of your song lyrics was.
Back when I wasn't very good at singing, I relied on my guitar to find the note first and then my voice (so I just used tab), but now I don't even know how to play some the lyrics of my most recent song and for now only have a .mp3 recording of them.
I compose mostly between the blues scale and the spanish gypsy scale (gypse in A mostly and blues in E) for both guitar work and lyric work. I only sing along with guitar. What method of notation do you think is best for this situation.
I've tried getting into standard notation, but what really throws me off is the constant flatting and unflating I would have to do with these scales.. seems like std notation is intended for other scales or something? So is there one for blues, and one for gypsy?

I would just write it like you see in tabs. Under the chord progression so you know when to sing. Then add your soloing or riffs over that, and get rid of the chords if needed.
