Hi, John Craig

 

Welcome to Song Stuff.  There's tons to explore here!  I'm still exploring myself.  

 

I hope you find that it meets your needs.  

 

I think some some of the best advice I ever got regarding writing lyrics is to just DO IT!  It's very simple advice, but good advice nonetheless.  

 

I've come across some great articles about different lyric structures on this site that might be helpful.  I'd love to link them here, but I'd need to search them again to find them.  There have been some recent changes to the site.  It's possible they are somewhere else than where they were before.  Try looking under the Critique section und the sub category, "lyrics".  In the meantime, I'll see if I can find it.

 

Enjoy the process!

 

 

I foud it.  Here it is (in the library forum).
