this is the best place i can find to post this thread. heres the story: i had dinner last night with my drummer and singer/guitarist. we were discussing our new songs and the art of songwriting. the way we work is as follows: my guitar/singer comes in with and idea(chord progression) and says to me what kind of bass line can you put to this. after a little work, we have something amazing. same for the drummer. he comes up with a beat that we all like and we go on from there. now my singer/guitarist is trying to convince us that because she came up with the original idea for the song that we have NO songwriters credit to it. i truely believe she is wrong. the bassline is a part of a song and i wrote it. her arguement is this, she came with the original idea and we built off of it. the original idea was hers therefore we dont get any credit. we also colabratively arrange the song. what do you guys think? its been bothering me since we talked about it.
