Ive written a few songs...the probably suck, but i wanna know how to put music to them...is there a process you go through? Im looking at just being able to play a few chords behind it, cuz im decent at melody lines, charachter parts and what not...and i know my speeling sucks
This should be in the Musician's Talk forum.... Songwriting and Lyrics is for posting lyrics to be critiqued.

[EDIT]: And I just figure out how I want to sing the song, and then write a chord progression that fits, and go from there. (sometimes the chord progression comes first, but you get the idea).
