nutty Advice to all singer songwriters (147* d) RE: Origins: Advice to all singer songwriters 16 May 13

Songwriting is a craft that has to be learned in the same way as learning to play an instrument.

There are few natural instrumentalists - most have to work damned hard at becoming profficient. The art of songwriting requires the same amount of dedication.

When I look back on my first attempts I am appalled at how crass they were but fortunately I had friends who continued to gently encourage me and some of my songs were eventually taken up by some well respected singers.

Even so - its still a case of "one man's meat" I don't expect everyone to like my material and admit that I am not always the best person to be singing certain songs even though I have written them.
