I love writing prose work and role playing, but I'm a terrible poet, and in tern a terrible song writer. Which sucks cause I love music so much. I've resigned to work on my poetic skills, but until then, I have to have some songs for my fledgeling band to do anything productive. So I need some song donations. Anyone have a song or poem they think I could adapt for my band to play? We have a kind of sound that's like a cross beteen Jazz and Soft Rock.

I got something I can give you. I wrote it, but my band wont play it because basically, it's almost all guitar. You know, they think I wrote it so I can steal the stage for 2.5 minutes. Well, it's a slow song, with some breaks in it for slow vocals, but if you filled those breaks in with that french horn, it would be awesome. The french horn guy would have to write that though.

I could give you the tabs and put a vid of me playing it up on youtube, so you get the rythem. Would that be enough for your guitarist? I dont' know any musical notation other than writing tabs....so.....that's all I got.

Tab's fine I guess. Put the video on youtube and post the link here? My French Horn guy can write the music for the spaces and we can put piano throughout. Got lyrics?

Haven't really given it much thought, at the time, I have other things to deal with. I might get something for you over the weekend.

I don't really have anything. We've only really done covers so far. I made this thread because we aren't good at writing lyrics. I do have some stuff, but it's terrible.

ooh -- I was going to say, that a writer's block hit me in the face last week, so I don't know if I can get you anything soon at all..

Another preference question: rhyming or no?

Either is fine. Though, I put a priority on meter over rhyme.

I'm still wondering when the aliens replaced my friend with a talking tree...oh wait. God my jokes suck.

None of my old poems work for what you're looking for...I even checked. *shrug*

Have you tried looking at lyrics other bands used, splicing them together, adding your own to em, etc?
