My band leader and I are having a bit of a problem and I thought I would ask the TB hive mind for a bit of advice. So we are a Post-Hardcore/Electronicore band and normally our band leader (Rhythm/Clean Vocals) does all the writing. I am still very fresh to playing bass so I don't exactly have the skill to start writing basslines, but I do what I can to help and I contribute in other ways too. Like graphic design for example. So the BL was getting a bit fed up with the harsh vocalist/frontman doing barely anything and he asked him to write some lyrics to one of our songs that are in development and put some vocals to it as well. The problem is that.. Well frankly his lyrics suck and the vocals he came up with are not really the best either. If he follows what the BL writes he actually sounds pretty good (if he actually practices). The problem is we don't know how to tell him that his writing sucks. He is one of those people who truly believe he has made something amazing, and I can understand that, but how do you tell someone like that, that they suck and how do you do it in a gentle way?
