Well I can play drums very well, picked up bass fairly well in under two years. I want to start song writing more. I am obviously very limited with writing if I can only play bass and drums. I am thinking learning guitar or the keys but which one? We are an edgy modern rock band, we also have an old school vibe a bit. I am torn, I see musicians like Mc Cartney for an example can do it all, composes on both guitar and piano. I guess which one would be more bennificial? I still want to take bass lessons too. I'd feel for writing the guitar would be best, but in the long run maybe the keys but I can't do it all at once. The reason I am so anxious is that our band is just starting to compose our original material. I definatly want to have a say in what the guitars are doing, and also want to participate in writing a lot of my own riffs that are stuck in my head but just can't get them out since I can't play. But then again the keys would be huge linking all this stuff together. So little time so many interests and directions I could go in, ....How do you guys write what works for you? What do you think I should start with?
