Have you ever fancied yourself as a singer or a songwriter? I myself am a frustrated guitar cum piano player. I know the basics, I learned when I was a kid, but it seems that I do not have that spark to take things one step further. But hey, we can always keep trying right?
If you want a nudge in the right direction, you should take a look at Lyrist 101, a fairly new blog which features all sorts of things about writing songs. You can find tips, news, and other information that can help you get started on your songwriting career. I have to say that some of the information is quite technical but there great examples which make understanding the posts easier.
