So im mostly a guitarist and ive never really been into poetry but i feel like i should start writing some tunes so where should i go from there?
Hey, it sounds like you're good at coming up with music, but not with vocals? If that's the case, listen to number hit songs and pay attention to the way they use their melody.

Melody is much simpler than it has to be.

For words, always try to fit less words in your bars, and try to communicate more. So in the few words you are using, they're more impactful and meaningful.

Lyric Writing is not the same as poetry, just to clear that up
