    Yesterday my guitar teacher told me to create a song

    I've never done that but I'm really looking forward to doing that

    I don't have much of a plan except to develop the rhythm parts, record them, and then play the lead along with the rhythm

    For vocals I can scream about as well as anyone else - that'll be another track - or maybe I'll just make my first song instrumental . . . worked well for the Dixie Dregs . . . and many other artists

    So, does anyone have any pointers - any plans that could be useful when writing songs?

    Thanks

    My 2c: It's like writing a book. Tell a story. Have beginning middle and end. Characters matter.

    Either that or just crank it up and melt people's faces

    YESSSS!!!

    But I also need to write something that my wife will think sounds good - some Major Scale based melody/ballad crap
