Would it be of benefit if we had a songwriting/performance forum?

What would be discuss? Pens?

I hear the Bic Biro is the best for transparent songwriting, but the Parker Vector makes for really warm and sparkly lyrics, whilst the Walmart 10 for $1 pens are OK for jotting down ideas but you need a Berol ballpoint for a hit single.

This is a gear forum! There are plenty of music forums where people can discuss musical stuff.

Lucid, livid, lively lyrics + magnificent melodic meandering + cool, creative chord progressions. Write 'em and sell 'em, it's OH so simple, quick & easy. Just do it.

It's not like we're going to be talking about engine rebuilding or gardening.

And it's not like it's going to steal resources from other forums, I shouldn't think. And it might well mean more traffic for GS, meaning more ad views, meaning that Jules can stay in business.

Hell, it might even keep me out of this forum a little and I'm sure there are folks who would appreciate that. heh

Maybe the new forum will boost acoustic guitar sales. / D / Cadd9 / Em / A7 / Gosh I just love the sound of Fender Thin picks on those chords ! Woop !

Pens? Are you trippin', dude? If you want to get the full organic feel of the lyrics, you have to use a pencil. A No. 2. Mechanical will give you some crisp, clean vibe, but an old-school yellow pencil--sharpened with a pocket knife, mind you--gets you the full vintage experience.

I vote yes, and here's why:

This is not only a gear forum; it is an audio recording forum. The topics cover not only gear but also techniques, concepts, philosophies, etc. If you're recording music, songwriting and performance should be things you consider -- especially if you are a producer/engineer or musician/producer/engineer, as so many of us are these days. I believe that the song and the performance are the first -- and most important -- links in the recording chain. So why shouldn't they be discussed here?

I want a section for discussing songwriting technique and theory - chords, scales, melodies, lyrics, and the songwriting process as a whole.

I'm 100% with this. I'd love to see a songwriting section on GS. How do we get this ball rolling?

That's very nice and appreciated.

I don't know if it was already made clear but I hope the subforum is heavily moderated.

In other words, we can all avoid threads of negativity and endless rehashes of "J***n B*** sucks". It's songwriting... let's be happy.
