Hey, I'm not sure if this is the right thread, but I think my band is ready to start writing our own songs, do you guys have any tips to writing songs? We play alot of Hard Rock.

THanks in Advance.
Well there's two (main) ways you can go about it. You can write the riffs first (i would do: guitar (person(s) that play guitar make a riff and solo respectively), bass (guitarists give the bassist the tabs they wrote and they convert that to bass) and then drums/keyboards (drummer just gets the rhythm going).

After that, you write the lyrics.

Or, you could do it the other way round (write the lyrics first)

Try both and see which ways best suit you.
