Definitely. I usually struggle with lyrics. The music comes a lot easier for me.
Putting words on paper is the hard part.

I mess around on the keyboard and if a melody strikes an emotion, i visualize what the situation may be. Sometimes memories, sometimes desires, or someone else's situation I feel, regrets etc, and sometimes just a created story. Put yourself there, and what would you say if you were telling it? It's just kind of how I think. I personally play and write together. Sometimes stepping away from the keyboard when I have the general melody of whatever part I'm working on helps, as it lets me focus on words better. I create what I call the skeleton, then add the good stuff and refine. When I have just words, or just music, I feel restrained. My ADD can be my friend or foe lol. I ramble, as you can probably tell. :)

Hi Sam, I heard this song today on the radio and it reminded me of your music.

Alice in Chains - Would. Check it out :)

I’m very familiar with Would. It’s one of my favorite songs. That’s a very nice compliment.
Thanks Andrea!

Just a little update on this project.

I missed my goal of finishing this in a year. I've come to realize that I can only do 2 or 3 songs a year.
I have been working on Destiny for about 6 months now.
Everything is complete except the lyrics and tracking the vocals.
I'm trying to put the finishing touches on lyrics now. Lyrics are the hardest part of songwriting for me.
How do you write a song about Destiny without sounding cliche?

I've also began working on Death and Destruction.
Hopefully I'll have something to post in the next couple of months.

Thanks for your support.

-Sam

Thanks Andrea. I’ve had a productive couple weekends.
I might actually have something to post in the next couple of days.

The pc that I use to record my music finally died on me over the weekend.
I think I need to replace the cooling fan.
I’m working out of town this week but will see what I can do about a fix when I get back home.
I am almost finished with Destruction. Can’t wait to post it.
Hopefully soon.
