When Do You Say, "i Wrote A New Song!"

Recommended Posts

Every songwriter likes to write a new song. At least I know I do! But when do YOU say you've done it? And I'm not talking about rewite after rewrite - I'm talking about when you think it's finished, what form is it in?


For me, I don't say "I've written a song," until it's pretty much all in place - lyrics, melody, chords and properly notated, usually with a simple bass and drum rhythm section. I use Guitar Pro myself, so it's easy to add all that in. When I was younger I used manuscript paper and a pencil, and always wrote for piano with vocals separate - 3 staves. From Intro to Coda... all the way.


I know some people who write down some lyrics, hum a tune till they like it, and note some chords down over the lyrics and say they've written a song.


I'm not saying they're wrong, or that I'm right... but I'm interested to hear about when other songwriters consider their songs written?
