I've been writing a few songs a year for last couple of years......mostly in an acoustic blues kinda of way....I get inspired and write things down.....Saturday I started a tune.....not yet done...and tonight I wrote down another one....pretty much done.....

I always come up with the lyrics........

The music-- the cords ---that is the area I fall short on.....not enough knowledge and experience there....

Most of my songs are simple 3-- 4 cord songs.....

I can sing most of them....But I can't translate that to the instrument....


Many just stay in the lyrics stage until I can get the rest done.....

I've used the Nashville Numbering system to help me work through a song or two....find the beginning and then play around with the other cords to find the sound....

I'm a neophyte with all this but learning as I go.....
