      Hi JDHarris,  for security reasons we changed our log in to the email account that the members used when creating their account.   Do you remember that email account?  If you do use it to log in.  If not, message me and we'll get it straightened out.  Nice to see you back! Peggy

      Thanks, long time for sure.

      I’ll have to find my way around the site.

      is there a board to post new lyrics on, I can’t seem to find where to post them.  Also hoping to find collaborator (s).

      Lots of changes, for sure.  I see you've found your way around a bit.  Here is a link to the critique sections



  2. Too cool!!! Love the music. Who did the vocals? Great sound. Bravo.
  3. This is a good example, as to what I was commenting on a few minutes ago. I read the words, then listen to the song, not what I thought I was going to hear. Having said that, I like. By the way, I sing in the car, outside in the yard wherever, I haven't heard neighbors slam windows or door yet, but while sitting at the red light, windows down, grooving, the car on my left rolled his up. Cleaned my closet and pretty well sang about everything I was doing as I went, full with interruptions of dogs, phone calls and kids. I think I have a musical or a good portion of one anyway. Too bad I didn't remember what the heck I was babbling about. enjoy my trip here. Jan

    First Song

    Hi, this is my first time to click the blogs tab (there's a song in there "Blog Tab Virgin" lol. I was surprised to find lyrics here, I was curious to see what people are blogging. Anyway, I'm glad I stopped by, I like and agree with the advice Kel has given. Learned a lot. If you post your lyric in the right forum, you may get further helpful critique from others as I have. I don't know how long you have been a member, but it took me a few human error computer mishaps before I found my way around here. I joined in mid July and have learned so much from others on this site. I feel now that some of my postings I may be going back to edit, or trash. I posted one today was more of a memory than song lyric. told the whole story, which I'm sure reads more like a half baked poem story. Not everyone hears the same music. I have country in my head, that doesn't always come off on paper. Todays posting about MG, though I wanted it to be more soulful slow tempo at times with sax and horns I have no idea how to get it from here to there. I don't know about you, but for me I find not being a musician has it's draw backs when I'm writing lyrics. Sometimes I have a melody as I write. Other times it's just words that are somewhat poetically written. I keep editing until I find something in it that might work as a song. Post it and see what happens, You may be surprised. I have had a lot of really helpful ways to improve them, from a platform so vast. There are so many excellent writers here who, if you're open to and not afraid of honest critics, you will gain so much. I have the time now to see what I can do with the great advice I've been given for each posting, make the changes and go from there. I'll be doing more research on song structure as well. Didn't know what the difference was between a chorus or bridge, didn't know their function or where to use them. Don't be afraid to lose some words or change them. Heck I've thrown out entire verses. keep writing, I did enjoy JDH just don't hurry Jan Ps I never throw out completely what I cut, I'll save it not for a rainy day, but for those dry periods.
  5. I clicked on the links for both the monthly song, as well the lyric contest that said to vote now. I got to the right places but their was an icon saying the site was locked. I also submitted my protest song, but did not see it in the list. Don't know where I sent that. I'll try again next time, if I was too late. Thanks.
  6. I tried to vote, but I was locked out. Was I too late? jan
  7. I have written poems for years also. Some I have rewritten into lyrics like Jingle Bells Are Ringing, I am currently working on two comedic lyrics. One is quite long and reads more like a story. I would like some input on how to shorten it and still keep the message. Jan
  8. How do I send lyrics to the right place, lyric critique?
