I use my fledgling piano skills to painstakingly figure out how to write down what I hear in my head. I'm getting the hang.
I usually hear them in tandem. I get a phrase that seems to lend itself to a melody right off and then develops. Of course that gets changed in the writing process, but that's how it starts.
Both. Myself, especially locally, but since I have no designs on being any kind of famous singer, ultimately, other people.
I like working it out on my own. But then, I've never collaborated before. I imagine it's like finding the "right" relationship, yes?
Chord writing over melody, definitely. It's an art in itself.
Hi, all. I am a for-fun singer and songwriter, learning as I go. Day job? Yup. I am at stagefright.com or MartiMacewan.com. Come visit.
Most excellent batch of folks.
