UG. I have decided I would like to compose a musical. I'm only 15 but my passion for that sort of thing is so big . Well tbh, I don't know where to start, I've got one song written (No lyrics as of yet.) And I'd like your help. I will be open to all ideas on everything (I will add a stupid character and you can all pick what they say if you want.)

I will post recordings as i go if you want.

so UG, what do you think?

this may be way out these but how about something about condemned people on death row. i'm sure they form interesting relationships with each other. make one of them innocent. u can have all these dark undertones and have the one who actually didn't do it. if ur gonna make a rock musical then u could have some sweet licks in it whenever one of them is taken away. of course there would be an escape involved...

That's actually a very good idea. Could have some really camp guy there and a lover outside the prison. Say that, the innocent guy has a lover and he dies.

I have a story idea.

Ther's a boy who was not passionate about anything> he tried everything girls, Cigg, Drugs , some sensible ****.... . andone day he watched some gangster nmo vie. he decided to try that . And ultimately he fell in love with death .So he hired some gangsters to kill a guy .Here's a twist the guy who he wanted to get killed was "he, Himself"

PM Me i have various crazy ideas like that

OOps sorry . I edited it

i very much like the idea of the prison musical. it kind of reminds me of a less happy, less gay version of the song "prisoners of love" from the producers.

well i think a good place to start would be: what kind of musicals do you like/inspire you?

The story of how this idea came to a 15 year old boy. He posted on a GUITAR forum, phailed horribly and became a heroin/methadone addict.

How very helpful

anywho, i myself like lots of musicals too, but is there a specific type of genre you like more than others that you could get inspired from?

Dunno what type of storyline you're going for, but good luck. It's nice to see UG'ers branching out beyond the typical pop/rock/metal songs.

Well look at that! Musical has the word MUSIC in it! And we are posting in THE PIT! A place to discuss anything not to do with guitars!

Are you looking for something upbeat (like Wicked), dark (like The Phantom of the Opera), sentimental (like that one about the Tennessee school and evolution), or what?


There are a lot of ways to approach this.

Why not about a handicapped kid that wants to play guitar, and at the end he really ends up playing guitar like a god and getting everyone to admire him?

Upbeat, Modern, but with a dark side to it. A sinister side, if ya know.
How about a plot in which a group or character normally seen as evil instead plays the role of the protagonist? For example, present My Lai from the viewpoint of the American troops, or Unit 731 from perspective of the Japanese. Try to keep them as good-natured and well-intended as possible - to keep the upbeat nature - but all the while, there's that sickening, revolting realization of what's really happening. AKA, when Edward Norton's performance in American History X almost made white supremacy seem to make sense. Horrific, and definitely attention-grabbing, but done so artfully, without the generic "bad guys are bad and good guys are good" simplicity.

Ill have you all know stefan (tanglewood) is going to ask out a moderately-hot-looking girl on saturday, and so is not gay. Even if he tried it on with me.

Half of you probably say that music is your life/a big part in your life, yet you take the piss when someone actually wants to do something with that and it r not teh metalz? zzz.
