Hey guys I've been writing a lot lately but after I get done and re read the song or poem or whatever it sounds really emo I dont know why this is happening. So I was wondering, when you write a bunch of songs and they all sound the same, how do you get out of that rut? Thanks
Listen to different type of music or some new band . try to write about something different . get inspired by stuff which doesn't inspire you . Compose your song in different key or modes .
id say try using higher chords or if your not using them higher up on the frets or strings.
^^Changing where I fret the strings will change the lyrics to my song???
