So basically, I'm a writer. I write song lyrics all the time, and lately, I've had the obsession with trying to write music to go along with the melodies that I already have in my head. I just wanted to know how those of you who write music go about it. I play enough guitar to get by, but I've been having problems with my rythmns changing when I start with guitar. And when i try to start with bass I have problems because in order to sing the songs, I need to keep the bass line simple, and I somehow always manage to overcomplicate it. Suggestions, experiences, anything you've got to share is welcome, thanks.
