OK, im pretty positive that this is the right place for this seeing as its about song writing.
So i have many ideas for songs. Some songs take longer then others to finish. Sometimes i even write lyrics to my songs. My friend and i jam all the time, share ideas and co-write songs, but whats weird is he seems to be able to hear the band as a whole and how it will come together. My perception of a song I'm writing generally lasts as far as guitar and lyrics. Does anyone have tips or exercise type things that can help me open my mind to hear the sound as a whole as well as a part? Besides drugs, they help, but i need more.
This should be in the Techniques sub-forum. If you're ever curious as to where something should be posted then read the rules of the forum first, and if you still can't figure it out PM a mod.
