Please forgive me and move this topic if its in the wrong place.

so i have some lyrics that ive written on my own and i am having a lot of trouble writing music for them. it just like...gets stuck. i was thinking...if you have an idea of how you want to sing it, could you write the harmony on guitar and then base the song on that harmony? If that method did work, how do you base the rest of the music around the harmony? I just need help and suggestions. i want to have a demo out by the end of the summer. thank you people. i will remember this.

You can write music that way. Once you have your harmony figured out on the guitar as a lead line, you should be able to figure out four or five chords that will strum nicely behind it. we call them voicings. Hope this helps you out

I have that same problem when I write beats. Basically, I rap it out, imagine what would sound good, and try to make it. But I'm not very good at that, so I may be hiring a producer (read: DJ).
