How do you write stuff? My band tends to jam a lot and try get vocals on last but vocals are our weakest/least important part. Hoping to improve on that though so wondering what others do. Alternatively does anyone try and do both together at the same time?

Ain't telling you my pedals!
when i write songs for me i often write the music first then lyrics

in the band often i write the song and our singer and other guitarist work on the lyrics
or we jam and th esinger writes th elyrics as were playing

i think we have decent lyrics but our music is the strongest part of our band i think
Whichever comes first....

Usually though I hit upon a new riff while I'm jamming, so I take a quick video of it on my phone so I can remember it later. Then it evolves into a backing track for me to play along to, before I eventually get some inspiration for the lyrics. Probably happens that way for about 80% of what I write.

It can be either way. Maybe get a copy of Paul Zollo's 'Songwriters on Songwriting'. It's a compilation of interviews with many of the world's great songwriters, about their approaches to songwriting.
What I'm going to do/have done with my latest bit of lyrics (just posted a C4C ) is to have my lyrics, then come up with some music to match the vibe of the lyrics, and then fit the lrics to the music. However, it could be a bit bland in its structure. Riff A for the verse, riff B for the chorus, riff C for the bridge, etc.
