So my band just played a battle of the bands at my school, and we did really well. But now we really wanna get out there and start some gigging. So we decided it would be time to write at least a couple of songs. So me being able to play bass/rhythm guitar, i can make some pretty good chord progressions. My lead guitarist is extremely talented. We are really good at making instrumental songs, but we would also like to make some songs with lyrics. The problem is we just don't know how to start a song. Sounds kinda weird, but yea it is really heard to make a decent intro. So any suggestions would really help.

Start off with a balls to the wall riff and then a calmer verse or build up slowly and then go all out. Depends on your vocalist.
