Alright guys, the question is simple:
Who wants to co-write a song with me?
I’m still having a hard time to get originals to my me solo act.
It was mentioned in a team meeting and Justin suggested I should try a co-write.
I think it was a great idea and my immediate response was to begin here, on the Community.
I know co-writing would be a lot easier “in person” but I’m up to trying it digitally. Google Drive, mails, messages, video calls, whatever it takes and what is considered comfortable.
**My aim is to play and sing it and you are, of course, free to do so too **
I’m not looking for a duet though
Always wanted somebody singing and playing a song you envisioned?
Do you have a song on the shelve you don’t fancy singing yourself?
Got something in your drawer that needs a bit of decoration and creative ping-pong?
Not sure about lyrics that are lying around?
We can work on it together.
If it ever becomes a hit, we’ll split the songwriting cash.
The least I can promise is, if it turns out to a be song I like, it can go into my live repertoire
Disclaimer; I’m a critical thinker and you must be able ot handle honest feedback and opinions
BUT I’m always respectful and I’m always able why I do or do not like something!
I’m always up for giving it a shot. I’ve only wrote 3 originals though but I’ve just recently started writing. Two of which I’ve posted here. The latest one I’ve still to record which I think has the most potential as a song,
I wouldn’t have it any other way as it helps drive the best out of you and promotes improvement
this is a great offer you make here!
I used to write some songs back in the days 15 years ago or so, when I was really into music and had lots of time on my hands. After re-entering the game last year I was also thinking to catch up on songwriting again, maybe also revisiting the old stuff. Probably, a co-op project would boost that part again, so I happily throw in my hat.
But as I’m still relatively new to the community and writing might be a little rusty I’m also fine stepping aside for some of the veterans among us.
Hey Lieven. I have quite a few lyrics and snippets of lyrics I’ve been writing saved. I struggle with the creation of a melody, I can do it but it’s a muscle I rarely exercise so it stays weak.
Reach out if interested. Good luck.
Playa of your ability and forum status is going to get loads of offers, Lieven
Props for asking and I think it’s a good idea to cast the net wide and see what you catch.
I have nothing lying around but am happy to see if the muse strikes if you want to discuss/provide some musical ideas.
We never know till we try
Are you going to post the lyrics here for all to have a go at this lovely idea.
Even from any novices point of view, the inspiration would be wonderful.
Hi Lieven, I would be up for this, have lots of lyrics that require working on.
The cat lost a leg and I’m down on my luck
Don’t care for my hat but I need my truck
Oh baby, I got the blues
Could be an idea for anotherk ind of co-op
I don’t want to make some kind of competition or group session out of this initial idea though
looks like you should pair up with @Richard_close2u
You’re the front man Lieven.
We’re the backing band giving you something to spark off!
Such a cool idea. Looking forward to hearing what shakes out.
That sounds so exciting .
Although I’m not interested in writing a song yet, I’m very curious how this whole project will turn out.
I wish you and your future co-writer lots of fun with it !
This is a very exciting idea / project. I haven’t been too active lately due to commitments etc but this sounds like something really cool. I have written and posted a couple of originals here that have been pretty personal, so I am not sure if that’s the style you are going for. Generally when I write something it just seems to pop into my head and not something that I give too much thought to.
Yes, I couldn’t agree more, Collaberation probably.
My initial though from your post was, from a novice point of view. “song writing is a skill” that must me learned. Seeing what people come up with can be inspirational.
I think this is a great idea of yours, even if people dont take part it will be very educational and a joy to hear something created from a collaberation. !
You’re going to get quite a few people that are up for co-writing a song with a JGC mini-celebrity @LievenDV
She drove away, left me feeling low
Truck broke down, lost my hat, nowhere to go
The cat got a prosthesis, a grin started to grow.
Baby, she’s fine, cat got a new leg
Truck’s running sweet and my hats on the peg
Man, I ain’t singing no blues!
