Inspired by my recent discovery of the "create new project" button in Guitar Pro, I ask you, Pit, have you ever written a song of your own?

PlayEDIT: I realized, I didn't answer. Yes, I have written a few for my band, but I don't like them. The rest of my band does though.

Yes. I've written a handful of original works and another handful of arrangements from established music and I write for a variety of ensembles. I'm also studying as a composition major...

...modes and scales are still useless.

I'm not gonna lie to you. Yes I have.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

I'd imagine most people in here are songwriters if they are in bands, even if the songwriting is with the band together...

Yes I've written many songs for bands and solo pices.

Several, but I don't know if I'd show them to anyone.

if you can't write good songs, you'll never become a truly successful musician.

Good songs separate a band that "makes it" from a struggling "underground" band.

I've wrote a few songs with lyrics and I don't really like them, though I have a few instrumental compositions I'm proud of. Plus me and my bands bassist have wrote an number of pisstake and comedy songs for our wee side project.
#15
written a couple of solo chord progressions for my acoustic and am in the process of putting lyrics to a song that my band made up but its not really going anywhere :S

Yeah, loads of my own that I'm happy with.

My band are more pop orientated, so most of the time I'll just record an acoustic/keyboard/vocals demo andthe guys will add their own touch to it...except that lazy as **** bassist who always complains the basslines are no fun, but won't make one himself >=[
#17
Yeah I write songs. I can't write lyrics for **** though, so they almost always end up just being guitar parts that I might save for when I finally find a band that I enjoy being in.

Yes, would you like to read one?

I don't know if they're any good, they're probably more good starting spots, and should be added onto and edited.

No, never. And I guess I'm kind of disappointed in myself for not having done it. I don't know if I will unless I join a band in the near future, though.

Never did the whole thing, but I usually was the one who outlined the basic structure of songs in my band and who wrote most melodies for guitar and bass. I used to help out with the lyrics, too.

So I never really wrote a whole song, only pieces of music, but I voted 'yes' anyway. Ha.
#28
I should remind people who disappointed with their own lack of songwriting that you don't have to be a songwriter to be a good musician, despite what immature and inexperienced people will tell you.

You tracked down some black guys and got them to write a song for you then took credit?


Yeah I have.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Yep, I've got a few under my belt, two of which I think are very good. Can't wait to get the recorded, and get some interest from other musicians.

I come up with lyrics all the time, and as a result I need to write music for about 6 songs.

Yeah, but I haven't RECORDED any of it yet. There are three "orchestral" things on my profile, everything else is posted in the Tabs and Chords section.

I'm only proud of about 10% of them.
#37
Yes, I have written quite a few... kinda. By that I mean I've written a lot of rhythm sections for songs but not every one of them has a solo yet. That and I don't have any other band members to flesh out everything.

Not really.

I know a lot of underground bands with awesome songs, I know they won't make it. Why? because they aren't rich. Money = Success.
