Hi Everyone I just signed up to the forum.

I was reading through alota posts and see that everyone is quite receptive and honest here - thats great!

I have a Really hard time trying to come up with lyrics that sound rhythmic. Can you give me your opinions on how to improve upon this?

-:Worth the Work:-

Sometimes life's hard and
Sometimes its gentle
Sometimes love's a card and
Sometimes i can't handle BUT
Im lovein' IT and its all
worth the work.

I mustered just to greet
But realized my voice went weak
I tried to impress
But saw that i was just a mess
I got you by my side now
But gotta figure to keep you how

For what its worth
It was worth all the work.

Sometimes life's hard and
Sometimes its gentle
Sometimes love's a card and
Sometimes i can't handle BUT
Im lovein' IT and its all
worth the work.

I guess it'll be a chorus/Verse/bridge/chorus.

i generally come up with a chord progression first (seems to come easier for me) but i tried the lyrics first. Saw in past post it can go one of two ways: Lyrics guide the song or the Music guides the song.

Hehe thats awesome Thanks!!!

I find myself "naturally" playing a very "chopped" style of guitar (maybe called stageto) quite often. I think thats kinda like Jack Johnson.
