K, so... This female friend of mine who lives out of town whom I haven't seen in ages asked me to write her a song like 2 months ago. She's coming into town tomorrow I have like a few words and some chords... I hope to God she forgets it, but with my luck, she'll remember.
I'm a br00talz metal guitarist and know little-to-nothing in acoustic guitar lines or lyrics. What do generic girls want in a song?
I'm not looking to get in bed with her either, and I DON'T want to rape her. She's just a friend and she's going to stay just a friend.

If you're not trying to get with her than what the hell are you doing wasting your time?

id say girls like songs about cumming blood and br00tally ripping apart bodies.

if not

just tell her how u feel and how pretty she is and whatnot in the song
#11
Don't mention doing the horizontal monster mash with her in the song.
Feed your mind.

+1, but only if she has a good sense of humor. Sorry, but I can barely write poetry, forget songs. As far as the rest goes, I hope you know the basic chords, because if not that's your first step from a musical standpoint. Good luck.

Play Going to California by Led Zeppelin. I can promise you she'll melt unless you have a crummy singing voice

some funny facts about her and tell her how good friend she is.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

wait... so youre writing a song for a girl that you dont have any romantic interest in?


oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooook..... lets just take that and roll with it.


start with REALLY simple chords, ergo, Am, Em, G, C, D, etc, then start writing lyrics based on just whatever comes out of your mouth while playing and -this is the important part- DONT THINK ABOUT THE LINES, THINK ABOUT HER. because if you think about the lines you will spend way to much time trying to perfect them and feeling self concious about them. itd be nice to record this too, so you dont have to remember the melody or words.


then you can rape- i mean continue having a friendly nonsexual relationship with her.
#19
i have never wrote a song about a girl, not that i wouldnt its just i write about philosphy and the esoteric subjects, but loving a girl (any love) seem pretty important, so good luck

True

Um....just do a comedic song I guess. There isn't much you can do acoustic wise for a female friend without it seeming like you want to get in bed with her, other than comedic songs. Maybe she wants to get in bed with you? Who knows hahah.

On a more serious note, use some more upbeat chord/strumming progression, like a fast paced country or meringue-ish chord/strumming progression.

Heres a good example of an interesting comedic song haha:

A reviewer on Amazon.com reviewing an album by the band "HiM", said that HiM is "fag metal".
Can someone explain to me what is this sub genre of fag metal? I have never heard it before.

tip 1) dont write many songs for girls. some begin to expect it if they find out you've done it for other girls.

tip 2) dont as the pit.

Play "Bitches Ain't Shit" by Dr. Dre she'll love it.
You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

Wow TS, this is a seriously great, original idea.


Anyway, I'm off, for some reason I have the strongest urge to listen to The Ramones.
#28
My guess is probably not metal. Tapping sucks on acoustics anyway. My guess is it's hard to write a song for a girl you're not dating, so I'm out of ideas.
#29
Pretend you love her and tell her how beautiful she is.

That kind of thing normally works.

Well you said you arent trying to get in bed with her... but do you like her as more than a friend? If so, write her a song to ask her out... that's what I did with the girl who is now my girlfriend

If you only like her as a friend, you could write a funny song about her and you.. like a stupid story of you 2 doing something

Or you could go the way writing a mushy song about how her being your friend has changed your life and stuff

Hey *her name* I just heard you were comin to town
I really hope you like this, I don't wanna see no frown
Do you remember the late summer evening back in 08
You sat in that comfy chair and watched me masturbate
You saw me sittin there havin just a little bit of trouble
So then you came and sat on my lap n that's when my trouble doubled
We had that mess to clean all over you shirt
And a little in between your legs since you were wearin that skirt
Two months later you say your having my baby
You asked if I wanted to help raise it n I said maybe
Well another month had passed and found out it wasn't to be
****, I was really glad you weren't havin no baby

Ooooh because you're my only one
I wouldn't want to have to let the litte one in on the fun
It should just be me and you
And maybe your sister to

Oooooh baby I want to ride you like no time before
See how long I can do it till I fall down to the floor
So I think it is time for this song to come to a close
I'm real glad that I'm the man you chose

There, sing it to her.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
