Thread Name: HOW do you write your songs?
Subject: RE: BS: HOW do you write your songs?
Most of my stuff gets written when my mind is empty ...........usually when I'm on a long drive -- 2-3hours at the wheel usually achieves something although not always a song ... I write poetry as well

At home and in the camper , I have a cassette recorder which I use to keep my mind focassed on what I am doing .. otherwise I forget words/tunes and am constantly changing them

The song has to be learned and "sung in" just like any other song and I may "fine tune" at this stage
