What it takes to write your own songs?





likeabreeze
you know,
visiting others' websites is boring, while building your own websites is fun.
reading others' books is boring, while writing your own books is fun.
using others' software is boring, while creating your own software is fun.
.....
the same goes for music...
even though the music is quite good, but it is written by others...that sucks..
so, what it takes to write my own songs?

Complete and utter bullshit.

It's really pretty simple: 1) an idea or aural aesthetic, 2) effort to bring it to life

The specifics are unique to any given song, but, you need an idea; a theme, a topic, a base melody/rhythm concept. Once you have that, you start building, testing different ideas and making them mesh. Eventually you build a song out of the idea.

Of course, experience, some understanding of how music works, and dedication are important, and may shape the choices you ultimately make, but, any amateur can write a song.

For me all it takes is having a clear mind and the motivation to write the song. If I have neither then I will just do something else.
