Hey everyone, I sing, play guitar, bass and drums and I'm looking to record all the parts of a song myself except I hate writing lyrics. I was wondering if someone would like to be the lyricist and we could work on songs together. I like playing alternative, grunge type rock. Thanks a lot for any replies.

Hey Hey.

I've got a whole lotta lyrics that don't fit my band (a power-pop group), but I can't sing to save myself.

I have some lyrics with basic chord progressions - vocals and maybe an expansion on the music side would be cool for these; and I also have some lyrics without music which you can run wild with.

Lyrics are posted on my profile's blog.

If anyone's keen to work on some stuff fire us a PM.

If you disagree with anything I say, just take it as a joke
...or go to hell

Hey guys.
I've written some lyrics that I want to make a song of. But I cant really find some chord progression that fits it really well. So could anyone of you guys help me out?
The lyrics can be found here: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru...=beauty+of+life

I thought it should like have the same style as for example SeaSide from the Kooks. But that's just a rough direction that i want to go with it. So you can basically do with it what you want.

Hi everyone, I have a song recorded without lyrics and I was wondering if anyone could download my song and try to record lyrics so I can get a feel for how to write good quality songs. If you can't record it then at least try to reply to me with some lyrics to help me get started.

I'm looking for someone to help me jumpstart my new progressive rock concept project. I have a concept in mind, I just need someone to help me expand upon it further and also help me write songs for it.

PM me if you're interested.

I am having trouble writing solo's. I have been playing for a long time, but it seems like when I try to solo, I seem to always play in the same box. I am stuck in the A Phrygian mode and the pentatonic. It's like my ear isn't progressing, and my knowledge of scales and modes isn't either.

Hey guys here's the deal. I'm looking to start writing a progressive rock (think Pink Floyd but a bit more Jazzy) concept album and I have a basic story line developed.

I'm looking for someone who would write the music along with me. This person needs to be quite open minded and not tied down to one specific genre or instrument. I would also like it if this person had a decent knowledge of music theory, as it definitely helps when talking about and describing music.

I'm also looking for someone to write the lyrics. If this is the same person as Person #1, then fantastic, but I really want the lyrics to be good, not just any old rubbish. I can also contribute to lyric writing, but in general I suck and it is very rarely that I'll come up ith a phrase or a verse that I like.

If you're interested, please PM me

Hey friends, i have two questions:

1. For the last few weeks i wasn't able to write Lyrics for anything, except about one thing. This is really annoying, so can you tell me ways to find inspiration for different Song themes?

2. I posted a couple Songs in S&L Forum, but I'm not able to write any Music. I have Ideas, how the Songs could sound later, but never Music itself. If you want to write some Music, you can go to my Profile and read some of my songs. If you have some ideas you are welcome to send them to me.

So I'm in the process of writing an EP for my hardcore side project, and I would love some help with lyrics if anyone is interested. I have some ideas as far as lyrical themes and subject matter goes, I just have no idea what to write. If anyone is interested in helping out, you'll get full lyrical credit once I have the EP ready. I'll post a link to some lyrics I've already posted on here as well.
