I would think that coming up with an idea would be the easiest, the lyrics second, and coming up with a tune be the hardest.

How does one come up with the unique, catchy tunes for each song?
if you do the tune first, the lyrics might be easier. or harder.

I've never smoked before but it looks like fun.
I find the idea easiest, then tune, then GOOD lyrics.

Ideas are easy, my songs never seem to get past the "one" riff or chorus and thats it. finishing them is the hardest.
I usually just start out by humming a cool little tune, turn it into a riff and other underlying melodies and the come up with the lyrics, which are usually the hardest thing for me, even if I have the vocal parts all set up, I get just a bunch of sounds and melodies with no lyrics to it, but it might just be that I'm weird like that and everyone does things the opposite way

Yeah, finishing them is definitely the hardest part.. I have about two million good intros, but not much to add to them..
I found it quite hard to read the S&L rules at first to make sure I was posting this in the right forum.


that's really the hardest part for me.
