My name is Ben. I'm from Arkansas. I write country songs but I really, really suck at guitar, so all I really do is write lyrics, slap some easy open chords on them, put them in a binder and then not let anyone hear them.

That's how I roll.

;) Well maybe we can convince you to share them here. We are about songwriting here, not performance.

Welcome :)

Hi Ben,
or should I say neighbor since I'm just above you in Missouri...but please don't hold that against me to much!!

As RD Man said above, please don't be shy about sharing some of your lyrics. I work with a lyricist that is not a musician and we have created some good stuff. So maybe if you're open to a collaboration we can get together sometime and put something together.

Good to have you here!

I would love to actually hear my music played by someone who is a real musician. Maybe this site can make it happen if someone finds one of my lyrics decent enough to give it a go.

Hi BRD, I think your intro strikes a chord with many here(pardon the pun). I am still trying how to put some chords I have learned to my words. I hope to read/hear some of your works soon.
