I’ve seen some guys who wrote great songs, but they thought they were shit. So, you never know.Not sure how many of you can relate to this, but I just need to vent for a minute.
So, I’ve never been able to write songs. I’ve got good chops on guitar, I’ll give myself that. I’ve got killer technique, so I don’t want to sell myself short. But I’ve tried for so long to write songs, even going so far as to try to just completely rip off other songs, and I still can’t generate anything but complete trash.
I believe it’s a gift you either have or you don’t. Who else here is in the same boat?
I try to imagine cool songs in my mind and then go from my head to guitar.
