Hey people, I was just wondering about something. Is it better to write your lyrics first or your instrument parts first? Because I've made a pretty good bit of guitar stuff, but then I'll try to start thinking of words to make it an actual song and just nothing comes to mind and especially nothing that can go along with my guitar.
I think that sitting down to write songs is stupid.
If you find something while practicing or something just write down and keep on going.
It's how I do it.
music then lyrics otherwise gota try n fit lyrics in tight spaces i find

but ive got loads of lyrics without music

so to each his own really, do you want meaningful lyrics or just sumin that goes with your song melody?
