Hey Rob! Welcome to Songstuff. It’s good to meet you :)


I’m a fellow artist. Mainly drawing in recent years, though I also paint, use pastels and pen and ink. I’d love to see any of your work.


Hopefully we can help you to progress your song, and who knows, encourage you to create some more.


Is any of your daughter’s music available online?

Hi Rod, welcome to Songstuff. I joined in April 2022. It's like a lot of other things - the more you put in, the more you get out is my experience here. It reads like you are pretty technically adept musicality-wise - brilliant. In terms of being stuck with lyrics to your song, I have collaborated (individually) with a couple of talented guys whom I met on Songstuff in order to write a couple of songs. If you send on your tune I can give the lyrics a go. Alternatively, I will not be offended if this does not suit you. As two contrasting lyric examples on TheGarageJump's YouTube page, there is 'Fed a False Concept' and 'Some Resolution', which are there for you to listen to and assess if this musical (lyrical...) direction is in tune with yours. Whatever the case, good luck in your songwriting endeavours.

Welcome. I come from a fine art background so very into imagery and Symbolism ( the movement ) and symbolism writing wise. The Midi I have not played one, but do play exotics with tenor guitar and ukulele. You need help with lyrics, it can be a lot of things at this site, from simple to comlex.
