I wrote my first song that I had recorded. A difficult song though it made a fair poem. So how different is it to write a song versus a poem? The recording artist who put it to music didn't care about the meter which is important in poetry... So how exactly does song writing work?
I'm looking for a basic song writing tutor, specifically some practical lessons on how to write song lyrics instead of a poem so that it can put nicely to music. Just interested in practical tips and points and ideas on how to structure the lyrics, length, rhyming, etc so that someone else can compose the music to it. Just want to make it easy to put it music! And so it sounds good too.
Do you have the magic secrets to writing good lyrics? Teach me! An hour to an hour and a half once a week weekends or evenings. I can come to you and/or meet at a public place. Let me know what you can do and what you've done with song writing. Thanks!
