  1. Trouble Adding Lyrics

    Wow. Genius. The entire song just came together! When I get the vocals written and recorded I'll send you a link. Thanks man you've been really helpful! Edit: would it be best, since I'm keeping the piano line as my vocal line, to keep the vocals staccato or draw them out with half or whole notes? ?
  2. Trouble Adding Lyrics

    Nice! Thanks man I really appreciate your response. I'm having a trouble understanding spread power chords though (still learning guitar) I know what power chords are, but by spread do you mean voicing over multiple octaves?? Also, I feel as if there is a lot happening in the higher register during the chorus. Do you think I should lower the lead an octave to make more room for vocals or by adding the spread power chords this will fix the issue??? Thanks again!
  3. Trouble Adding Lyrics

    Hello to all, I just wanted to say thanks first off for having me on the site! This is my first post on my first forum so I'm not up to par with forum edicate yet. Anyways I've been working on this track for a couple weeks and I'm having trouble adding a hook. The verses aren't a problem I just can't seem to fit anything during the chorus (when the lead guitar plays). I really love the main melody but do you think it's too much to have vocals accompanying them?? I'm thinking of using the guitar riff as my vocal melody then using the actual riff in another section. I'm actually having this same issue with EVERY SONG I WRITE. Here is a link if any of you could possibly give me any feedback or some critiques that would be great. Thanks for listening!
