Everyone who writes a song has a different way of going about it. Some songs take years to finish, while others come together in minutes.Do you start with the music or the lyrics? I would have to say, one of the hardest things I have ever done was sharing my thoughts with others. Once I did and recieved a little feedback ,I don’t know why I thought it was so hard.Here are some of my songs , I would like your input on them . If you have a song you would like to share Please let me know ,Also if you have any techniques that you use to help things along, please feel free to post.

What Do You Think About Country Music?
As I mentioned in my Bio, I am a big country music fan . I have decided to create this blog page to discuss the definition of “country” when it comes to music. Where do you draw the line between todays country and classic country music?
Many people say its the fiddle or steel guitar, some say its the drums and bass guitar. I have heard its the lyrics or content that set it apart. Whatever you may believe, I would like to hear your views on this .
Check out the Traditional Country Music Association Facebook page .
One of my favorite youtube sites , you can watch some of your favorite entertainers perform songs .
