    I'm a finnish music enthusiast, who makes different kinds of music with computers. I do all kinds of mixing and mastering (mainly my own songs). My style is so called Old School - based on my history ie. mainly Blues and RnB based music. I'd like to do collaboration with different kinds of people in music industry or with the people, who feel passion for music: > bands (demo songs for bands) > songwriters > lyric writers > singers > others Jari Korhonen Lappeenranta Finland

    Hi Gang We are re-launching lyrics challenges, so it might take a little time to get the numbers of members taking part to a good level.... Please invite other members and non-members you think might enjoy a regular lyrics writing challenge! The purpose of these lyrics challenges is not just fun. They are intended to expand experience, building lyrics skills and understanding, and to help each writer to make contact and collaborate with other writers. The first challenge is something many songwriters struggle with. Being positive without being too cheesey! The Challenge The first week long challenge is to write an upbeat song about or related to the season "spring". Try and reflect the feeling of spring in your write. The challenge will last 7 days, from draft to finished work. You will first post a draft in reply to this topic. Your wok will then be critiqued by other participating members. After 7 days, you will then be asked to post your finished work as a topic with an attached poll, asking specific questions (we can help you create these topics), labelled "Challenge Spring Lyrics: Your Title" within this challenge board. Post your work as soon as possible as replies to this topic. Discussion of the lyrics is an important aspect of the challenge. Expect frank and honest critique from other members, and remember, this is primarily a personal challenge. When we run a poll for each finished set of finished lyrics it is to inform you and to help you grow. So please, write your lyrics, post them as replies and then take part in the analysis and development of your own and other member's lyrics. Have fun! Cheers John

    Hi, lately my quest has been to write short lyrics. Ive had my share of bad break ups, but regardless i feel songs about love and loss the easiest to write for me. I love "in depth" lyrics. Billy Joel is one of my inspirations, but im intrigued by short songs. They show there are no bounds to writing a great song. My favourite example is "you are so beautiful" by Joe Cocker. The fact it doesn't make the process any easier proves song writing is a delicate art... "Good to go" You know i know you I know you know me You do what you do I get on my knees You know i wont lie You say when and where Without asking why You know ill be there Im good to go You know i know you I know you know me For all we've been through What of "what will be"? You know i dont mind I know you dont care They say love is blind You know ill be there Im good to go Just say the word Im good to go As if i knew any better When you knew it all along Love to me is all that matters You just love to lead me on And im good to go Just say the word Im good to go I know you know Im good to go As it occurred Im good to go (fade)

    Hi! My name is Tamara Hey. I'm a singer-songwriter and music teacher. I teach guitar and music theory workshops in NYC and online. My workshops are tailored to the needs of songwriters/lyricists/singers and include basic lead-sheet and chart-writing techniques. I've joined Songstuff today because I'm interested to know what music theory questions songwriters bring up so I can continue to serve those needs. Also, I love songwriting more than anything.

    This is my first (and until later this year, only) album, "We Are All Famous", released on Green Monkey Records. Available on iTunes, Spotify, etc., but you can here it here for free. It made Ted Gioia's list of best albums of 2013, and he was kind of enough to say some super nice stuff on the Daily Beast: "Is this Brian Wilson Recording Under a Pseudonym? No, it’s just Jim of Seattle. Or so they say. But I’m still skeptical. Jim’s We Are All Famous, is just too creative for a self-produced project by an all-but-unknown performer. Jim knows every rock-pop production trick in the book, and uses each one at some point in this album. His conception of vocal harmonies is especially adept. Get this man out of Seattle and bring him to Carnegie Hall! We Are All Famous may have been the single most pleasing musical discovery I made during 2013. "

    I have a song called Awaken I am short of time just now but I will come back to these. Any others willing to rise to the challenge? We are having an issue sending out our newsletter just now, so I will probably extend this challenge for an extra week.

    Here's my other submission. Awaken Lyrics by Kc Chad ©2017 Sparkle of dew on blades of green Sprouts emerge from dormant seed Sun rays bounce through shadow of trees a delightful dance Awaken life Awaken song Awaken warmth Arouse the morning The buzz of bees hover the buds crawling through petals closed pollen feet, shy petals unfold turn your blush to smiles Awaken life Awaken song Awaken warmth Arouse the morning Constructing a nest, fibers entwined builds her home, every glide New bed for eggs, purposeful flight Hope spurring her work Awaken life Awaken song Awaken warmth Arouse the morning Bridge: Spring long awaited ice and cold abated death foregone life bursting strong Hope satiated and satisfied Curse of cold ground, you steal for death buried down, life's in you yet waiting to be awakened, with warmth and quenching rain Sheathe your blade, cold breath Awaken life Awaken song Awaken warmth Arouse the morning Arouse the morning.

    Here's one of my two submissions for the "Spring" lyric challenge. I wasn't sure about this one, so I did another. This is sort of a silly one. My Springtime Song (It Feels So Good!) lyrics by Kc Chad © 2017 My Springtime song got my mudboots on slip-sliding along leaving skids like a car leaves black on the tar Fingerpaints by foot Squiggle, gobbledy gook And it feels so good! My Springtime song got my mudboots on splish-spashing in ponds Mom says I need waders when I wrestle them gators scales of bark on logs near the edge of the pond Ah! It feels so good! My Springtime song I got my mudboots on I'm swish-swashing along splashing with an aim (to) create tsunami waves in those puddles like ponds My shade of fun! And it feels so good! My Springtime song I got my mud boots on I'm heading for home soaked to my underpants My noggin's duly drenched drizzling drips strings of hair And it feels so good! Springtime, Springtime, pie is on, make me a cake that packs a crunch. (crunch, crunch)

    Hi nsj, Catchy and pretty clever i'm good to go. Nice. Had a little stumble with "What of what will be" just a suggestion "Is what it will be" or "what is what will be" Peggy

    Ha... well I wouldn't say it sounds that old...just something about something about it reminded me. But I think I'm stuck in roughly 1991 so it might just be me I started my break round about the same time...

    Yes, John, I understand. It’s also a case of “you never know what will work out and how”, so better to be aware of the know-how. I’m terrible at time management, though, so that’s a steep learning curve :-P Thanks for all the detailed pointers… will look forward to exchanging notes as both time and I make progress..

    Mahesh, so it turns out that another perk of my joining Songstuff was to come across your profile I was going through your posts and music in detail today and to see a professional sounding voice, music and production like your’s trying to make it big is both an exhilarating and sobering feeling. The former reason being, this is potential star-material that can help promote quality international music through local talent (maybe even making it big globally). The latter one being, a great part of the Indian music scene is not about the kind of music that you and I have started to appreciate. I admire your courage to fight the odds and stick to your decision to make this a full-time pursuit. I was an active performer in school and college levels but never gave it a thought of going further because I couldn’t see the viability. Turns out that the heart’s stirrings have a greater strength than the mind’s calculations So, as a thirty-something who’s finally beginning to polish her voice again, I find your story really motivating. My best wishes for you and the exciting times ahead! Will keep picking up tips every now and then
