Thread Name: Songwriting -- Part 2
Subject: RE: Songwriting -- Part 2
I haven't been to the other threads, Ebbie, so I am sorry if this has already been suggested. One of the things I always have handy is a tape recorder. As I haven't played fiddle that much lately and don't want to lose the train of thought which is a tune or lyrics, I usually hum, speak, or sing it onto tape first, then go back for transcribing. That way, when the Muse strikes, spur of the moment, I am ready for her.*BG*
