I'm a guitar and I was wondering how guitar players "write" songs? Do they actually write 6 lines on paper and just tab it out? or what.
some guitar players know how to read and write sheet music so they can write the chords, notes, rythm, tempo,dinamics of the song on a staff

some dont write anythign down at all they just remember the riffs and chords prgressions of the song

some just write down the chords and lyrics

and of course some'll tab it out
